We stayed in this wonderful, small resort (2 story, 40 units) for 2 weeks. It was obvious to us that nearly everyone, but us , had come every year and had done this for MANY years! The swimming pool was enormous and even had a diving board. Every day we received clean towels and had the garbage removed. Every other...

I have been going to the Driftwood since I was a child with my parents. Now my children are growing up at the Driftwood and love it just as much as I do. Each year we bring friends and introduce them to our home away from home...our "happy place". And each year we get to see our Driftwood family. Right...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Driftwood Beach Club!! Our family of 18 just stayed a week at the Driftwood. This is the 3rd year we have spent spring break there. Ellen and her staff are phenomenal! It has the biggest swimming pool of any of the hotels in Lauderdale by the Sea. The rooms are in a U shape surrounding the...

We have just returned from another great stay at Driftwood, and we have already booked to go back again later in the year. If you want a place to relax, then look no further Driftwood, everything you need is right on your doorstep, so you can just park up your car and relax, but if you do need to go...

This was our 3rd year vacationing at Driftwood Beach Club over Spring break and we are never disappointed! We usually rent 5 - 6 rooms since there are at least 18 of us and we never have any issues, that's hard to beat with that many rooms. Not only are the rooms clean and the pool area immaculate but the...

This place has a lot of good points, clean,recently refurbished suites, nice pool and across the road from the beach. The bed was only a double, smaller than the usual. The big problem was the noise. Street noise during the week was tolerable, but on Friday and Saturday the street is closed off for a rock band, which set up...

We stay here every year at the same time and have made lifelong friendships with people who also here every year. Every year there is something new in our rooms.

A real gem. So friendly and hospitable. Activities planned if you wish to partake. One of the better time share properties. Beach area is landscaped to include shufle board court and thatched hut for hiding from the sun. Large pool with surrounding lounge area.
