“Great Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We spent 6 days and 5 nights in the Pinnacle Tower. We had a great corner suite with a beautiful ocean view. While the rooms are a bit dated, they were clean and well maintained. Our family loved being able to move between the 3 hotels that were all part of the same resort. They had something for everyone. We traveled with two 15 yr olds and one 8 year old. We could choose from the beach, outdoor pools, indoor pool and water slide or multiple outdoor activities. We ate in the Compass Rose Restaurant every morning for breakfast. Their buffet was wonderful! They had live entertainment at the outdoor bar and also in the evenings in the restaurant in the Pinnacle Towers. Their staff is courteous and friendly. Multiple times I was offered assistance when carrying things or even doors and gates being held open by staff for me. They gym is small but the equipment was nearly new. The only complaint we had was the elevators in our building were slow! Especially in the afternoons and evenings when people where checking in. We were only on the fourth floor so 98% of the time we used the stairs. I would definitely stay here again!

Compass Cove is a fantastic hotel! The rooms were very clean and the oceanfront view was great from the 7th floor. There are so many different pools and hot tubs to choose from, which were also clean - there are convenient wash stations between the beach and the pool area to keep most of the sand out. The TIki Bar and Crow's Nest restaurant had quality customer service and the food and drinks were really good. The only downside was that the cleaning service was slow and that sometimes we had to park in the garage across the street after returning to the hotel in the evenings, however I would still highly recommend staying here!

We loved compass cove. The rooms were very clean and well equipped . The service was wonderful . Everywhere you looked there was a friendly compass cove employee ready to assist you in any manner. The resort is laid out beautifully. Pool towels always readily available as well as tubes for the lazy river. Absolutely loved our stay and can't wait to go back again!!

The resort is dated. There are a lot of pools which are crowded and dirty. We couldn't get cell service or internet while in the room. Our room was very dirty and dark. The stove made our pizza curl up on the sides and the coils on the top were tilted. Overall dirty place. We sat at the tiki bar one night and we had to leave because the large black bugs were having a party under or feet. You had to drive to most places to eat not much within walking distance. Ocean view was nice and the staff were helpful.

Just returned from a weeklong stay at Compass Cove. We had a blast. They have everything. Great food in the restaurant, great drinks and entertainment at the tiki bar. They have water slides, lazy rivers, and several pools and jacuzzis. Pool towels were supplied and were plentiful although a little small. The pools were kept very clean with pool attendants cleaning up and keeping the kids in line. The rooms were clean and housekeeping left plenty of towels. We had a suite in the Pinnacle Building and it was perfect. Also they have free DVD rentals which we were able to take advantage of. I highly recommend Compass Cove. See you next year!

My family and I stayed at the Mariner Building and i must say that it was really nice. We were on the 9th floor with a nice ocean view and loved it. The kitchen and living/dining area was a little small for a group of seven but even that wasn't nothing to complain about. The breakfast buffet was great and very convenient so i highly recommend including breakfast when booking to stay here. I was skeptical about staying here at first due to the reviews but we had a nice clean condo and may come back to visit this resort next year. The only con i have about this resort is that the lazy river is small but other than that we had a great time.

We had a wonderful time at Compass Cove. For a hotel as big as it is I was amazed at how clean the entire property was. The grounds were beautiful and the pool areas were always kept clean. We reserved a 3 bedroom condo and it was well equipped and very spacious. We enjoyed the entertainment at the tiki hut each day as well as the voodoo juice buckets. We are already planning our trip for next summer. After staying at other hotels in the past, I can finally say we found our vacation spot at Compass Cove. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay on a higher floor for the best views.
