It's a 50's style motel (think Miami beach setting of "Dexter") and the motel rooms are made into condos with nice sized stocked (pots, pans, dishes, blender) kitchens, dishwasher (soap provided), coffee makers (filters even provided!) . The staff is friendly and try hard to make you feel at... More

Driftwood is a very quaint & adorable place to stay. This resort is in walking distance of everything. We rented a car and only used it to get from airport and when we drove up the coast to visit a few other beaches, but it was not needed while staying in LBTS. All restaurants nearby were delicious and were not... More

The location couldn't be better, you are steps away from the beach, and the pool/hot tub is centrally located in the middle all the rooms. The association has different themed nights, such as wine & cheese... More
