I just love this place, the Driftwood is one of the most friendliest place you could stay, I have had so many happy times here, simply the best. It has the largest swimming pool, and apart from relaxing by the pool, you can walk to the beautiful beach. Shops bars and restaurants are all walking distance away...

We LOVE this place! We've been coming for several years now. It's a 50's style motel (think Miami beach setting of "Dexter") and the motel rooms are made into condos with nice sized stocked (pots, pans, dishes, blender) kitchens, dishwasher (soap provided), coffee makers (filters even provided!) .
