We had a most enjoyable week here in early November. The resort was well maintained and had everything we neeed. They serve great buffet breakfasts. There are fall pkgs which included breakfasts and this is a great deal. The condos are ideal if you are travelling with a family or couples.

Room Tip: get a pkg deal with breakfast included, can't beat it

A room with an ocean-facing balcony and full kitchenette. More swimming pools than I could visit. Direct access to the beach. And located near many of the main Myrtle Beach attractions. We booked at the last minute for a family funeral, so the occasion was sad, but the hotel really lifted our spirits and helped make the trip more pleasant, as we had a good, affordable hotel breakfast every morning and enjoyed some of the hotel's hot pools as well as going for a walk on the beach. I'd go back again any time I'm planning to visit Myrtle Beach.

Room Tip: Higher floors have a great view, but the elevators can be annoying to wait for.

Compass Cove is by far the best resort we've stayed at in Myrtle Beach! The is just so many things for the kids to do at the hotel, great restaurants right there and room are very spacious! The staff is what makes the Resort though they are all friendly and willing to help any way possible. Housekeeping was very attentive and always gave anything we needed. I will recommend your Resort to everyone I know!

Room Tip: Mariner Building is the best room size for the money!

This was our 3rd visit to Compass Cove but our 1st off season trip. We arrived Nov 21st about 11pm so check in was a breeze. We stayed until the 25th. This was our 1st stay in the Schooner building. I requested a higher floor and we could not have been more pleased. The Schooner bldg is 4 floors high(with elevators), all ocean front rooms & we were in room 412 which was a corner room with an entire wall of windows/sliding glass door with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The building is attached to a parking deck which makes for super easy access to your room. We parked on the 4th level of the deck, luggage carts were right there & it was a very short walk to our room. We were directly over the Tiki Bar & the shuffleboard courts. I will say that shuffleboard is not a quiet game & we could hear folks playing even with the sliding door closed. The room was super clean & updated. There was a nice deep closet that easily held our hanging clothes, coats shoes & empty suitcases. There was a partial kitchen with a convection microwave, a sink, a full size fridge/freezer, several cabinets & plenty of dishes - plates, glasses, silverware, etc. The bathroom was very nice with a granite type counter top and a mirror that both ran the length of the bathroom. Plenty of room for my husband & I to get ready at the same time. There was also a tub/shower combo. The water pressure in the shower was pretty bad but for a vacation that was no problem. The closet, kitchen & bath areas were all connected & tiled. The rest was carpeted. There were two queen beds, two very comfy upholstered arm chairs for lounging, a round dining/game table with sides you could fold down & three dining chairs with upholstered seats. Plenty of seating which was very nice for a room that size. There was also a dresser with a flat screen TV. The balcony was wider than most & had two plastic chairs & a small plastic end table. We spent hours sitting out on the balcony because you are right on the beach. It was windy & cool but very sunny. We were completely protected from the wind on the balcony & were able to sit out in shorts & t-shirts. We ordered take out from the Crow's Nest one night & the prices were reasonable, it was ready very quickly & the staff was very friendly. The resort is centerally located & is close to shopping & entertainment. It was a wonderful relaxing & romantic getaway & we will definitely be back soon!

Room Tip: Higher floors of Schooner bldg have better ocean view.

My wife and I could not have asked for a better stay! This is the first time we tried compass cove but after reading reviews it was an easy choice. Everything from check in to check out was perfect. Only hiccup was we were originally put in first floor of the schooner but after a quick call to the front desk they helped us move directly above us on the second floor for a better view of the ocean. Housekeeping was did an excellent job each day and even made great small talk with asking how our trip was and everything. Room was very clean and reasonable size for the price. We spent most of our time in the indoor pool area and learned our last day that there was an even bigger one in the next building over, next time though! Thank you all for a great time and definitely will be back! Thanks!!!

Room Tip: Be sure to request a non first floor unit for a better view!!
