I've been coming to the Driftwood for a week every summer for about 20 years now with my family. I finally purchased my own timeshare in "The Breakers" a few years ago and it's been the best decision! Such a wonderful place to spend a week on the beach with all the comforts of home.

Arrived for weekend getaway to celebrate a friends birthday. The view from the room of the pool and ocean was amazing. Room was clean and well stocked with all the amenities of a small apartment. The only downside was the presence of large Palmetto bugs, 3 in total. Although they were dead or dying it was disturbing to see and... More

Thank you for your review. Happy that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry you found a few palmetto bugs. We strive to be bug free, but it is a constant battle in the warm Florida beach environment. The day you arrived we had had our monthly pest control treatment and that normally will produce a few sightings of critters for a... More

We have stayed here a couple of times and always enjoy it. It is a bit louder and hopping than some other places but everyone there is fun and friendly. The rooms are kind of Old Florida but they are also very unique, right on the water and the Waldo's...their restaurant is terrific! In the evenings you can sit on... More

Stayed for a week on a timeshare exchange, it's not Five star luxury but then again it doesn't pretend to be. It's a beach side property which incorporates the original building from the1930's. The surrounding area is well maintained and clean. We were in a studio Apartment on the 4th [top] floor which had nice sea views. The room itself... More

We went here with our time share exchange. Our room was very nice with a great view right on the beach. The room was clean and had all the basics we are used to for a time share. Considering this is a historic site, I thought they had done a nice job keeping the place up. There are several building... More

I went to the driftwood resort four consecutive years for a week stay in the summer. You cannot beat the price, pool , ocean view bar and restaurant. They have the best mahi mahi fingers and sandwich I ever had. I sure hope I get a chance to make it back here again sometime soon

I thought the rooms were very nice, clean comfortable and off season rate was great! However finding the room was not fun at night seeing that we arrived late. Thank goodness the lady at the front desk was locking up and helped us. Signs would be a help! Great area. Great view! Also maybe a vending machine so you could... More

Well, it's clear that when they built this place, they had a cabin style in mind, and while that style may be out-of-date at most places, it rings true at the Driftwood Resort. The rooms are 60's & 70's style decor with plenty of nostalgia. It is nice to have a full size refrigerator and dinette if you need one.... More

Thank you for your very kind review of the Driftwood Resort....you obviously "get it" The Driftwood is very unique, but we pride ourselves on being friendly, clean and offering a true "old Florida" feel to the resort. Seems like we succeeded with you. Hope we will see back on the property in the near future. Jeanne L Radlet General Manager More

This is NOT your polished modern Florida beach hotel. The original building was built in the 1930's. It has been upgraded inside yet looks like the original on the outside. There are now 4 or 5 buildings on the property so I recommend calling the very personable staff and tell them what you want. I loved the old building as... More
