“For the price we paid great stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

Compass cove was a great place to stay for the rate we got. Rooms could be updated in the Pinnacle building but overall it was ok. We had a great ocean view. Kids loved the pools, slides, splash pad and hot tubs.

Wonderful resort well worth the cost. Tiki bar has great drinks and the 3 bedroom condo was perfect for our family. Can't wait till my next visit

What I donot like is trip advisor trying to make me type 200 characters. Starting to piss me off

This hotel is perfect for any family vacation. It is clean and the rooms are spacious. There are a multitude of activities at the hotel to keep everyone in the family occupied. There are also tons of activities in the area to keep families occupied. The kitchen was small but clean and serviceable. The full size fridge was a nice plus as were all the kitchen implements including toaster and coffee maker that were included. We are definitely going to be returning and would recommend it to any of our friends with kids.

Room Tip: Ask to be in the Pinnacle building. It is newer, cleaner and more spacious.

We did a lot of research on resorts. We've stayed in MB before but always at the same place. Tried Compass Cove. It's made up of 3 very different buildings. We stayed in the Mariner condos. Very nice. new kitchen, new baths, nice beds. very clean and big! Then you have the Pinacle with is newer and a bit more upscale. 3rd building is the Scooner. a 3 level "motel style" right in front of the pools. It got a bit crowded on the weekend. Lots of beer drinking and stuff my 5 yr old could have done without. However, the tube slide pool was awesome!
Overall, great place, no noise or parties. No problems. Keep in mind. Big complex and strange to get around. 7 out of 10

Room Tip: Mariner building if you have kids. HUGE rooms and new kitchens with granite and new cabinets. Nice b...

Green Features: Good. No smokers anywhere. Clean beach. Plenty of recycling bins. Good job if you pay attention to these kinds of things

Large beetles and roaches found in room a few times. Stains on all bedding. Great front desk staff! Sad we didn't take advantage of the slides and pools until we stumbled upon them! The pool deck by the Tiki Hut is much nicer than the Pinnacle Buildings facilities.

Booked through Expedia - resulted in many issues at the hotel.
Compass Cove made things right as best they could.
Great location - wonderful beach.
No need to leave resort for anything. Activities, Meals, Pools, Ocean, Music, all in one place. Nice resort setup.
Family Friendly and Focused
We were on a Couples Vacation and still could enjoy and find our own spots.

Room Tip: Higher floors for cabana privacy/use and views.

I stayed here the weekend before Labor Day and I must say I was impressed since day 1 !! Front desk receptionists were nice ! My room was immaculate ! When I say clean , I mean it was spotless ! I'm very big on cleanliness and have to say from now on I'll only stay here the next time I come back to Myrtle Beach. This place has endless amenities !! Location was perfect ! Right on the water , and not far drive from boardwalk ! They also have a bar with live music and great drinks and good quality food ! Room service was one of the best I've encountered! Very family friendly too !! I recommend this place for people of all ages and people who are looking for a great experience at Myrtle Beach,SC.
