We stayed at the Compass Cove Resort last month in the Mariner and had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the view was amazing. We were sad to leave but while at the airport just before boarding the plane - one of our group realized she did not have her Droid cell phone. She thought she had left it in the room on the bed but in calling we found out the laundry had been collected. The laundry said they would look for it but I didn't have much hope.
To my surprise that evening she received a call from laundry staff that they had found it! The next day she made plans with the front desk to have it shipped to Michigan. She has since received her phone and the great pictures from her trip. I want to thank the staff for their assistance and would gladly recommend this resort. We will be back as soon as we can. Thank you.

Compass Cove, namely the Pinnacle Tower, has undergone some major renovations and is a wonderful place to stay. It is right on the beach, beautiful sand, and the staff could not be more accommodating. I visited for a week in November, the weather was really great and sunny. The rooms are updated, complete with new rug, draperies, and bed covers. Very nice kitchenette with full refrigerator, stove and dishes and pots and silverware. Definitely will come back again!

Room Tip: Upper floors in Pinnacle (we stayed in 1061) are away from the pool and beach noise.

Our stay at Compass Cove was great, even though the weather was not. The room was very nice and clean with a beautiful view of the ocean. We were given the exact room that we had booked even though we arrived a day early. The staff at the front desk were very pleasant and always helpful. All of the staff were very polite. The lady at the golf office was just fabulous. She was funny and nice and very helpful. There was lots to do even though the weather kept us off the beach and the golf course, the indoor water facilities were great, enjoyed the pool and the hot tub very much. Also had a great gym (very important to me). We checked out 2 days early because of the weather without a problem, they gave us credit for our 2 nights which we totally plan on using in the spring. It was our first time visiting Myrtle Beach but definitely won't be our last and when we return it will be to Compass Cove.

Room Tip: Pinnacle Building Oceanfront (Rm 1262) great room

i have stayed here a total of 5 times. i go down to Myrtle Beach every November. Although not a gleaming new resort hotel, it is always clean, and, has a very high level of friendly service. rooms range from your basic hotel room with an added fridge and stove, to very nice 3 bedroom condos. lots of rooms with direct beach views. lots of water features...pools, lazy river, hot tubs. buffet breakfast is good and included in all golf packages.
Crows nest is their lounge and features cold drinks and bar food. lots of places to chose from in this city, but the service keeps bringing me back.
