“Christmas Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

For our second visit to Compass Cove, we decided to splurge and stay in the Deluxe Corner Balcony Suite in the Pinnacle Tower. It was totally worth it. The suite was huge. A full kitchen allowed us to cook a homemade Christmas Eve dinner, as well as breakfast each day. The Murphy Bed in the living room was "super comfy" as per my 7-year-old. The free wi-fi was awesome. The balcony allowed for a spectacular view.

Amenities enjoyed were the indoor pool, indoor lazy river, and indoor hot tubs, all located on the Lobby level of the Pinnacle building. The water was clean and kept at perfect temperatures. There were plenty of towels available.

We've stayed here twice during the winter holiday season, and Compass Cove is the only place we will stay at for future trips to Myrtle Beach.

What a great place! Our family stayed in a 3-bedroom oceanfront condo. The price was very reasonable. The staff were always helpful and friendly. I liked the fact that everything was at my fingertips: 2 restaurants on site, a workout room, plenty of pools and hot tubs, and of course the beach. Plus, tons of restaurants, movie theaters, and grocery stores within a 5 mile radius.

My granddaughter and I spend the night at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort recently. We arrived after following very clear directions. We were greeted by very friendly front desk staff. The room was spotless and we had an awesome view of the beach which is what my granddaughter (7 yr old) wanted. We had a great night sleep with no distractions! She enjoyed playing in the heated pools before breakfast. She wanted to stay another night, but we had to check out. We will definitely be going back to Compass Cove. We may make it a yearly visit!

Oceanfront one-bedroom suite, with mini-kitchen. Even off-season, this was a pleasant stay while we visited with relatives for Thanksgiving. Plenty of restaurants and grocery stores nearby. Parking spaces were a little tight. Outdoor corridors lead into the bedroom, since the living area and balcony face the beach. A little unusual, and cold coming up from the pools being wet and having to go outside. Very clean and good value.

We do a golf vacation every December and have been staying at Compass Cove for the last ten years. It should speak for itself that we keep coming back here. Great staff, location and accommodations. We stay in the 3 bedroom condos and it's nice to have a kitchen and washer and dryer in the room.
