The history of this resort and its rustic appearance is interesting and appealing. We stayed on the 4th floor of Building A which offered a fantastic ocean view and exposure to the refreshing breeze from the comfortable wooden chairs on the balcony outside the room. However, an overwhelming musty odor greeted us each time we entered the room and the...

Thank you for your review. We're glad you overall enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry your carpet was not as clean as it should have been, it is only 3 years old, but apparently should have been shampooed prior to your stay. We hope you will join us again sometime when you are in the area. Jeanne Radlet, GM

What a great place! It is rustic themed, just like a beach house should be! We just loved our stay at the Driftwood. We wished we could have stayed more than one night. The room was perfect for or needs. It had a kitchenette, a small living room, modest sized bedroom, and a pull out couch in case you had...

My husband and I stayed in room 124B for 3 nights and had a lovely visit at the Driftwood. The location couldn't be closer to the beach! The rooms were quirky and different. Certainly not the Ritz, but fun and relaxing to the max. Our room had a king bed and a pull-out queen sofa. The bathroom was large with...

Had a client stay here to work on a project. Loved the rustic vibe and the suite was perfect. We worked from the beach, the restaurant, and the pool. The food was solid and the staff was excellent. I will be bringing more people here, more often.

I spent two nights there, but will stay longer the next time. Right on the beach, no dealing with an elevator and walk through the lobby, no street to cross or wild shrubs to walk through before you get to the sand. Suites well set up with everything you need in the kitchen, etc. Kitschy and delightfully different. Not a...

We had lunch on a sunny, breezy afternoon. We sat on the patio so we could enjoy the sea air along with our meal. The food and service were very good The place is charming. It is aptly named because it looks like it was built entirely from pieces of driftwood. The next time we are in Vero Beach, we...

Many years ago we purchased (sight unseen) in the building process a suite in The Breakers-- second floor facing the park. The view over the park, looking to the ocean is a picture-- a painting--a happy scene. If old enough to go to the park alone, you can watch them from the balcony. We have been coming here since the...

We stayed in the newer "Breakers" rooms. Very well appointed. Nice beds and bathrooms. Full kitchen. 3 Patios opened out to the second pool, more private than main pool which is overlooked by Waldo's Restaurant. Waldo's restaurant offers great seafood and drinks. Walk to Ocean Grill for fancy dinner with old-school supper club feel. Excellent location. Walk across the street...

“Rooms on the south side of Building A are quieter. Access to 4th floor is via a dirty, slow elevator but can't beat the view from the top.”

“Our room didn't have a beach view, but that was fine with us. We'd rather actually be on the beach than look at the beach.”
