“great time at compass”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

we went with another couple the last week of october. hurricane sandy week! the indoor pool and hottubs were great. also enjoyed the lazy river. buffet breakfast was delicious. make your own waffle and the crispiest bacon. room was spacious and clean. staff very friendly. couldn't have asked for a better time except for weather.

Room Tip: we had a corner oceanview and it was larger than the oceanfront room.

First visit to Myrtle Beach and Compass Cove had all the amenities I was looking for in a family-friendly, affordable resort. Stayed in a cabana level room during Thanksgiving. Room location was nice since (we were right across from indoor pool and close to parking garage). The breakfast buffet was great, the Thanksgiving dinner buffet was just ok. Nice oceanfront location, family enjoyed the indoor pool, hot tubs, and giant chess/checkers set. Great value, my family and I will be back.

For our second visit to Compass Cove, we decided to splurge and stay in the Deluxe Corner Balcony Suite in the Pinnacle Tower. It was totally worth it. The suite was huge. A full kitchen allowed us to cook a homemade Christmas Eve dinner, as well as breakfast each day. The Murphy Bed in the living room was "super comfy" as per my 7-year-old. The free wi-fi was awesome. The balcony allowed for a spectacular view.

Amenities enjoyed were the indoor pool, indoor lazy river, and indoor hot tubs, all located on the Lobby level of the Pinnacle building. The water was clean and kept at perfect temperatures. There were plenty of towels available.

We've stayed here twice during the winter holiday season, and Compass Cove is the only place we will stay at for future trips to Myrtle Beach.

What a great place! Our family stayed in a 3-bedroom oceanfront condo. The price was very reasonable. The staff were always helpful and friendly. I liked the fact that everything was at my fingertips: 2 restaurants on site, a workout room, plenty of pools and hot tubs, and of course the beach. Plus, tons of restaurants, movie theaters, and grocery stores within a 5 mile radius.

My granddaughter and I spend the night at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort recently. We arrived after following very clear directions. We were greeted by very friendly front desk staff. The room was spotless and we had an awesome view of the beach which is what my granddaughter (7 yr old) wanted. We had a great night sleep with no distractions! She enjoyed playing in the heated pools before breakfast. She wanted to stay another night, but we had to check out. We will definitely be going back to Compass Cove. We may make it a yearly visit!
