“Hanson-Wisconsin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Living in Wisconsin, my husband and I like to get back home to SC at least once a year. This year we choose Compass Cove and what a great choice. We met up with a few other family members and had an awesome weekend. The lazy river was a favorite of mine and my 9 year old. Beautiful beach front, awesome helpful staff and excellent long island iced tea ;-)
Can't wait to do it again next year!

Room Tip: Early booking of course is always the best. However don't be to shy to ask of any specials.

We had a most enjoyable week here in early November. The resort was well maintained and had everything we neeed. They serve great buffet breakfasts. There are fall pkgs which included breakfasts and this is a great deal. The condos are ideal if you are travelling with a family or couples.

Room Tip: get a pkg deal with breakfast included, can't beat it

A room with an ocean-facing balcony and full kitchenette. More swimming pools than I could visit. Direct access to the beach. And located near many of the main Myrtle Beach attractions. We booked at the last minute for a family funeral, so the occasion was sad, but the hotel really lifted our spirits and helped make the trip more pleasant, as we had a good, affordable hotel breakfast every morning and enjoyed some of the hotel's hot pools as well as going for a walk on the beach. I'd go back again any time I'm planning to visit Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view, but the elevators can be annoying to wait for.

Compass Cove is by far the best resort we've stayed at in Myrtle Beach! The is just so many things for the kids to do at the hotel, great restaurants right there and room are very spacious! The staff is what makes the Resort though they are all friendly and willing to help any way possible. Housekeeping was very attentive and always gave anything we needed. I will recommend your Resort to everyone I know!

Room Tip: Mariner Building is the best room size for the money!
