Funky, eclectic oceanfront resort with two of its buildings listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. 100 rooms and suites of varying sizes all with some kitchen facilities. Old Florida at its best, rocking chairs in front of every unit to gaze at the ocean while enjoying a beverage from the on site restaurant, Waldo's, the last of the Great American Hangouts! With 9 buildings on the property, there is something to please nearly every taste. Located right in the heart of the beach business district there are more than a dozen restaurants and lounges within walking distance and a newly renovated city park right next door with wonderful playground equipment for the kids. Join us for fun and relaxation.

Stayed here for our first week of our Snowbird winter vacation from Canada using out timeshare points. Very friendly & helpful resort staff. We had a courtyard view one bedroom unit and were able to sit out on our little patio & listen to the band at Waldo’s(restaurant on site).

This place is awesome. The staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. They gave us dinner recommendations and were always spot on. The room was in pristine condition and the views were phenomenal. We are definitely planning to return.

Thank you for your review and kind words about the Driftwood Resort. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope that you will return again soon. We try to keep the pools at 82 degrees I'm sorry if that didn't feel warm enough for you. Again, thank you for your review! Jeanne Radlet, GM
