“Nice room and great pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

It was a very nice stay. Staff was nice and helpful when needed. Room was older but clean had dishes and mirco wave and this wasn't the efficiency. The only bad thing is that the indoor pool was indoors however you had to walk outside to get to it not great on the colder days other than that would recommend!

We loved the Compass Cove. It is HUGE and the grounds are awesome with pools at every turn.I also very much appreciated the rubber bracelet security policy, so that no outsiders were able to use the pool grounds. Just don't lose them!!! There is a fee for a new one!
The hotel is literally on the beach! You are a swinging door and a small ramp away from the beach. My family and I spent most of the time going from the beach to the pool and back again pretty much all day long. My niece loved the lazy rivers and the children's pool area with the ship and fountains. They also had some very inexpensive ($10 or less) creative classes for young kids throughout the week.
The rooms were very clean, some of the furniture was a little out of date but the linens looked pretty modern. The small kitchenette was perfect for making quick breakfasts and sandwiches for lunch. The room we had booked had double beds with a pull out Murphy in the living room, which me and my husband used. It comfortably fit all 6 of us in there. And we just loved the balcony to the beach! Beautiful to see the sun and sea every morning.
The breakfast buffet was pretty good, but only had time for it once (and the food staff were on point!). The bar restaurant could be better. The food is like a cross between diner and dive bar food and the music gets really loud at night. They also offer free movie rentals in the lobby near the pools.It was nice to unwind with a movie after a long day walking around Myrtle Beach.
The only issues we had were the parking, the small lobby with LONG lines, and response times from the housekeeping staff. Parking would get crowded and full after 8pm and there is a limited amount of handicap parking. When we wanted to extend our stay we had to wait on a line for a good half hour just to speak with someone....but the staff were amazing. They just need more space and maybe some more front desk personnel. At one point in our trip we needed towels, it took them 2 hours and a couple of phone calls to get the towels to our room. The next issue was actually in my sister's room, we had dropped a glass and tried to pick up the larger pieces and push the small stuff to the side. After calling the front desk to let them know, it took them half a day to get back to her room to vacuum the tiny glass bits. Honestly, none of these are deal breakers. We had a very good time and we are planning to stay again!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor away from the restaurants, they are quieter and have a lovely view

We absolutely loved the resort very clean, loved the layout of our room it was fully furnished. Loved that all pools were heated. Waking up to the sound of the ocean and view from our private balcony. The weather was beautiful. We will be returning in the future for a longer stay. Thank u for the great weekend stay.

Great views, awesome customer service, very clean rooms, & delicious food! Would definitely recommend this resort to friends & family. Parking could be better, but that is the only complaint I have. Hostess in compass rose always had smile on her face & her conversation always made my day. Beautiful flowers outside, can't wait to visit again in mid summer.

The room, the staff,the view was all wonderful...I would have given it a 5 star but the handicapable excess was lacking. My Mom can not walk without a walker and it was very hard for her to get to the beach and back and there was only 2 handicapalable parking spots for a hotel that was 15 floors. My Mom did have a great time and the view in the morning was breathtaking.

Thank you for writing a review for Compass Cove on TripAdvisor!

I sincerely apologize for the lack of handicapped parking. Please know that with a handicapped placard, you can also take advantage of the metered parking made available by the City of Myrtle Beach, without having to pay for it. In some instances, these parking spots may be more convenient and accessible from your room for people with mobility issues. Also, if this is not available, please do not hesitate to contact a member of management, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

I'm happy you were able to enjoy the resort and amenities, despite this inconvenience. We hope to see again in the future!

My family and I went to Compass Cove over the weekend and we really enjoyed our stay. We enjoyed the room, view, food and the indoor pools. We initially was going to stay Saturday night and return home Sunday but we extended it until Monday. This is definitely a 5 for us :)
