We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The rental units are equipped with all the amenities of home. The property is very quiet and shaded with mature oak trees. Swimming pool is clean and cool. The staff even cleaned out the ashes from our BBQ grill each morning! We will definitely come again!

We are so happy you were able to stay with us for Labor Day! The shade trees really do make a difference in the South Texas heat and we are glad for our guests that the trees are throughout the rental unit area and RV sites. We hope you will visit again soon and not wait until next year to...

Sounds like your family loved Drifters Resort and the Rockport area! We are always happy to hear from our guests...especially about what they love about staying here. The Cabana is a great floor plan for a family, the other three floor plans are available to see on our website if your family size should change. Please come visit us again...

We really enjoyed our stay! Everything was there, we just had to buy a few groceries! The WIFI needed to be stronger, but all in all, it was a very nice place! We really liked the Pool!

Thank you for your review. We try our best to provide everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing time while at our resort.

We stayed here end of July and still had a sea breeze! We loved the cold AC and shady resort. Great pool and friendly staff. Close to Rockport and Port A which made it easy to go either direction. We will surely be staying here again every summer!

It is always nice to hear that you plan to come back to Drifters. Our question is...why wait until next summer? Fall is a great time to visit Rockport with the cooler days, Hummingbird Festival in September and Seafair in October. Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you again!

Had a great stay in the bungalow. Very clean room with cold A/C! Wonderful shade all around the park and good BBQ pits. Staff was super and very helpful. Great for fisherman with boats, plenty of parking. Would stay again for sure!

We hope the fishing was as enjoyable as your stay at Drifters! We do take pride in our rental units with options for your boats (free parking, electric and outside water). Just a note that when you may stay again, mention that you do have a boat and we will try to place you in a unit with the pull-through...

Reviewed 14 July 2015

Stayed a couple of nights in one of the Cabanas and it was as advertised. Loved the fact that the cabanas are 40+ feet apart so no one bothers you and they have a quiet time after 11pm. Reasonably priced and conveniently located close to Rockport beach and many local restaurants.

Julie M, Guest Relations Manager at Drifters Resort, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to send your review. The rental units are nicely spaced...close enough to visit your neighbor but separate enough to provide for your privacy. The Cabana with the two Queen beds is a very popular floor plan amongst the four different ones that we offer. If you visit again and would like to try a...

The facilities are very nice! We have stayed in this park with our RV and also in the cabins. The office staff is awesome! The only draw back I see is that the park workers (or at least one of them) tend to yell at people even when they aren't doing anything wrong. Even if he isn't yelling or accusing...

We too are happy that you found us! The Cabin you stayed in is just one of the four floor plans that we have available. For your future reference, a diagram of each unit is available on our website.
