We stayed just four nights at Driftwood, but would have stayed many more and we will definitely stay there again if we get the chance. The hotel is set on some acres leading down to a lovely beach. Views of the coast from the hotel are sublime. We were given the cabin, which is down a little path between the hotel and the beach and while I can understand the cabin would not be for everyone, it was perfect for us. It is self contained and extremely private with unbelievable views. I think the view each morning from the bedroom window is probably the best I've experienced. The hotel itself is charming. We ate one night at the restaurant and the food is well deserving of a 'fine-dining' label. The attention to detail by the owners is excellent, from the pieces of driftwood craft found throughout to the olive-tree topiary in the reception and the girl's school hats hanging in the hall - all charming and wonderful. The staff were responsive and friendly but it is the location that gives makes this hotel worth every bit of five stars.
