We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo with a kitchen. was very clean, great view of the ocean, right on the beach. I would definitely stay here again. Friendly great service. we got a pack&play for our granddaughter to sleep in at no charge. close to shops. swimming pools, outside bar was great ! Perfect place for couples or families and great prices..

My family and I stayed at the Resort this past week during the 4th of July. The resort was clean and very helpful with any needs that we had. I called the front desk a couple of times to request some things that we needed and they were very quick to respond. We enjoyed the lazy rivers and pools and slides very much. We also ate dinner a couple of times at the Crows Nest Restaurant and the food was excellent. They have specials running everyday and the portions of food are great for the money. We will be staying there again next year. They are very family and child friendly in the resort which is very important to us.

My husbund and I really loved this hotel. With our two young children it was nice because between the pools and the ocean it kept them occupied. It has great restaurants right there on the premises so you don't have to go out in the traffic of myrtle beach to get food. Our room was oceanfront and was VERY clean and updated. Everyone I came encountar with that worked there was very nice. I honestly don't have any complaints. I would recommend.

The oceanview rooms in the Schooner building are great. Breakfast buffet was very good, staff great, especially Doc at the Tiki bar!

As this is a family oriented place, there are alot of kids. Our room was right above one of the pools which could get noisy at times but that didn't bother us.

The beach is great, ocean warm.

We would definately return.

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms in the Schooner building were the best. As this is a family oriented place, there w...

We booked this trip for a spring break trip, but had to reschedule due to an issue at work. We arrived instead the first weekend in June and AFTER paying for the room were given a form to sign which stated that "NO PETS" were allowed. I have been writing reviews for Trip Advisor for a long time, and found this very hotel under the catagory of "Pet Friendly". Come to find out, they only allow pets in the winter. We drove over 4 hours with 5 children and our little Chihuahua only to be TUNRNED AWAY!!! We ended up staying in the Affordable Family resort across the street, but had a HORRIBLE vacation because the money we paid to Compass Cove was not refunded to our account for a WEEK after our trip. I was and still am very upset that they didn't send that form as soon as we booked the trip. As a result, we had only HALF the money we had budgeted for the trip, had to eat peanut butter and jelly, and didn't get to buy any souvenirs for the kids.

Room Tip: Make sure to get all the information before booking with this hotel

I have been traveling to the compass cove since it was the old swamp fox. Over the years things have changed so much, mainly for the better. The only complaints I have were the recent addition of swimming bracelets. After being a very good customer for over 30 years, I refuse to wear one. Also, finally getting restrooms in the lounge was way over due. I don't know how many times we almost killed ourselves going down the slippery stairs to the locker room bathrooms by the indoor pool. One other thinng is the Crow's Nest. Please keep the kids OUT!!!!! We used to go there every evening for our 10 day stay, last year we were there for a half hour and we left there were kids singing karaoke. It was a nightmare and we did not return. I am talking about a group of 20 of us. the bar lost alot of money on my group last year and I am sure several others. And on of the best employees that has ever worked for you is Miss jeannie Cartner in the Golf department. She is worth her weight in gold.
