“Enjoyable stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Upon arrival I noticed the bathroom sink drain was broken. I notified staff and when I returned from dinner it had been fixed. Comfortable beds, lots of pool and lounge areas, and helpful staff all made my "mothers day" stay at the beach wonderful. I would definitely recommend Compass Cove to my friends and family.

Our rental was from a private owner. This was our first visit to Compass Cove and we loved it. There are plenty of pools for everyone to enjoy. There was a great dj by the pool the Saturday we were there. There was a 2 guy band that I personally did not care for, but I am not into The Beatles. All of the staff were very friendly. There was a nice maid but we did not get her name, and there was a very nice maid named Marydell that was very sweet. This is indeed a great family resort and we are looking forward to staying again!!!

This resort never disappoints. Rooms updated and very clean. Bedding and pillows very comfortable. The pools and pool areas were very clean. The kids absolutely love it here, they never run out of pools to play in or things to do! Love the restaurants on site, fair prices, great food and exceptional service!

Room Tip: Love the Pinnacle building, can't go wrong with oceanfront suites.

We had never been to myrtle beach before so choosing a hotel proved difficult! We were definitely glad about the choice we made after seeing what we could have chosen! The hotel is remodeling which did cause some inconvenience but nothing too horrible! Parking was definitely challenging as well! I would prefer to seek out another resort next time but would be okay if I had to stay there again! Nothing special!

From "discovering" Compass Cove Resort on-line until the moment I checked out, I was totally impressed ! I had many questions so I booked using the toll free number on the website. Representative was knowledgeable about everything I needed. As we are not "room dwellers" I booked the Schooner Ocean Front Cabana Room and it more than suited our needs. The room was clean, comfortable and large enough that 3 people did not feel crowded. An ice maker in the full sized refrigerator was an added bonus !

Between the beach, pools, lazy rivers, hot tubs and water slides, we did not feel the need to leave the grounds for much of anything !

The breakfast buffet is a steal ! Great food for about $10.00 a person cannot be beat.

Room Tip: In the Schooner building, ask for a room above the first floor for a beautiful view of the beach. F...

This resort had a little bit of everything. We were on the sixth floor of the pinnacle building, with easy access to the many pools and lazy rivers. They offered unlimited movie rentals from the lobby with a surprisingly large selection; large chess and checkers; three lazy rivers; shuffleboard; beachfront access; corn hole; and three restaurants. Parking was easy, the rooms were clean (although there was construction in the lobby of our building), and everyone was friendly.

This hotel has two buildings, the high rise tower and another not as tall. We were in 3257 in the tower. Over all the facility has lots of +s. location is the biggest. It is beach front about halfway between the Big Wheel (ferris wheel) and south end of the beach drag. The dune between the hotel and beach is small and easy to cross. The city sets up rental umbrellas and chairs from about 9AM - 4PM. There are several pools, 4 I think. Two were heated and one was indoor. It is nice that they provide pool towels. But take your own beach towels. There are a couple of places to eat on site which were convenient and avg quality. Service was slightly above avg across the facility. There are a few things that families with kids 2-8 years old would appreciate: kiddie pool with fountain and water slide / tubes at the indoor pool. Our room had a full kitchen and ocean front balcony. It was nice to have a bed room separated from the living area. It was said to accommodate 8 people.

We had asked for a room with a king bed and on a high floor. We got a room with 2 doubles on 2nd floor. The room was pretty old and well worn. I would not want to be in that room with more than 2 or 3 people. To sleep 8 there is a Murphy pull down and sleeper sofa. Neither of which seemed very comfortable. The bathroom is far too small for a big group.

There is construction going on in the tower. But it was actually not a problem. On our floor they were only in the entry and elevator lobby. They didn't start work until 10AM and shut down around 6PM.
