Oh, I must also add that the rooms are newly decorated, spacious and include a full kitchen and living room area. We took part in weekly karaoke, wine glass painting and coffee and donut get togethers. Chair massages and...

Ellen was very accommodating in answering my questions after I reserved my stay and emailing me pictures of the room. When I arrived (which...

I visit the Driftwood Beach Club at least once a year with friends and family, and each time it leaves me counting down the days until my next visit. Once you arrive at Driftwood Beach Club and make your way to the office you'll get your first taste of the "community" that is the Driftwood. From Ellen and her team,...

This is our third year at the Driftwood, started out with my sister and friends. Now each year more family and friends have come with us because all we do back home is talk about what a great place the Driftwood is. The rooms are all modern and have everything just like home.

I love everything about the Driftwood Beach Club! I was first introduced to the Driftwood Beach Club about five years ago when traveling to Lauderdale-by-the Sea with some friends. I had previously stayed in other hotels in the area which were nice but I never felt as relaxed and comfortable as in the Driftwood Beach Club. Just across the street...

It's a block from the middle of Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. Across the street are the private shuffleboard courts and keyed beach access. The pool was a little warm this year but not a big deal.
