Warm from the moment you enter your room. From the GM Ellen Z backed by a 5 star staff. Any room your walk out of can view the ocean. You enter a resort of complete relaxation ... Your world becomes happy restful fun. In all our travels this is our first love. We aren't guest we are family.

I have been going to this location since 1993 and it gets better each year. Driftwood does have a retro 50 flair that I very much like. It's quiet and has a homey feel and if you want a vacation atmosphere, you just need to walk a short half block to Commercial Blvd. Ellen and crew are the absolute best!

We've been going to the Driftwood for many years. It's the perfect vacation every time. You can relax by the pool, or walk to the beach, and there's plenty to keep you busy nearby if you decide to leave the comforts of DBC.

We have been going to LTBS for years and always stay at Driftwood Beach Club. The resort management keeps this place up to date and very clean. The resort is located smack in the middle of LBTS and within easy walking distance to many restaurants. The Publix Grocery Store is about 1/2 mi walk. No need to rent a car,...

Updated rooms with everything we needed for the week. The building is older.but Lauderdale by the Sea, in general seems to be that way. The service was excellent, rooms were cleaned up everyday. They have grills to cook on too. Easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Chairs were provided on the beach. Not much of a pool person...

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...
