I've stayed there very cozy place I would stay there again friendly staff
I stayed at the Driftwood for a month in February 2019 in the Spoonbill Suite. I was really pleased with the accommodations. Nicely decorated in Beachy decor. It was small, but good for myself and my husband. Everything was updated and it was clean. The reason why we didn’t return was not because of the accommodations but because of some of the other guests which thankfully weren’t there for the whole month. There were rules in place so everyone would have an enjoyable vacation however these rules were ignored by a few guests. Two families arrived with several children and basically turned a tranquil property into an amusement park. They took over the pool for pretty much the entire time and past the pool hours into the night with Piercing screams. They took over the BBQ which was shared by all units and set up right in the pathway we had to use to enter and exit. Total inconsideration. The other issue was with smokers. It was specifically stated on signs and in the ad that there was absolutely no smoking anywhere on the property. There were smokers right in front of our unit and I had to close the windows and door so as not to smell it in our unit. I told them it is a non smoking property but that didn’t stop them. Our first two weeks were great but the 2nd two weeks, not so much. There was no PRIVATE outdoor space which complicated things more. I did complain about the kids in the pool breaking the rules on the sign posted and they got a call from management but that just made me feel uncomfortable when I walked down the path and was glared at. The cleaning staff and booking and management was great.
Our second time here and we liked it even more. Very cozy, affordable and quiet. I like the well-managed atmosphere. No need for me to consider another place to stay on the island. Hope to be back soon.
We stayed here in December 2016 and plan to return July of 2017. Our room was very clean the owners are really nice and the property is kept spotless .It was only a short walk to the beach ,stores and boutiques . There is a little Lounge nearby and several places to eat out. We had fun taking the free trolley that circulates the island and just roaming. We also rented scooters and had a great vacation ,as nice quiet place without the busyness and huge crowds of other Florida beaches. It's only a short drive to all the shopping you could desire in Bradenton.
My wife and I were there at the end of July 2013 for our anniversary. The accommodations were very good. The room was clean, the bed comfortable. The staff/owner was very friendly.
The beach was well within walking distance (50 yards?).
The area was very quiet, that may have been because we were on a Wednesday. Weekends, we were told, the island is packed.
