“We stay here every year”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

My family and I stay at this resort every year. We have introduced several people to the resort. We really like the convenient location and the pools. Our room is always clean and the staff is always friendly. We just returned from there yesterday and my only issue was our hot water went out and my family of 4, including my 2 year old (self explanatory), had to go to another room in another building late at night to shower because we were covered in sand and chlorine before we knew about the shower .The hotel was full and they had no rooms to move us to and no rooms in my building for us to shower in. I was very surprised that the resort did not offer us a credit for anything. Not even a free breakfast. Even with this issue, I still plan to make reservations later in the year.

Room Tip: If you have small children, be sure to ask for a room with a full size refrigerator.

First, let me say I have stayed at this hotel on several occasions with my family and have never been disappointed. I always went here because I knew it was a place I would enjoy. This time, it was awful, and I won't be back. There are plenty of pools, but they were all dirty, all the time. I understand that during a busy season everything can't be clean all the time, but every pool was dirty. Three if them has band-aids floating in them, others had candy wrappers, and other trash, and also dead bugs. Also, the kids splash area, which is actually not bad, but was filled with dead bugs. Not just one or two, or in one corner, but they were every where. The room wasn't clean, the floor was covered in spots, and there was a lot of hair in the shower. Again, I understand that during a busy season it's hard to clean everything all the time with so many people staying at once, but this was unacceptable, and I will not be back!!!

We had an Oceanfront Suite in the pinnacle building, way better than any normal hotel room with the full size fridge, pull out sofa and wall bed all separate from the bedroom. The view alone was worth every penny of the stay! The room was good, and the front desk was able to provide us with some of the supplies that we assumed would be included in the room (ie coffee filters). The Wifi is basically unusable and cell service for AT&T and Sprint is spotty in the rooms and around most of the resort. Our Kids (8 & 10) loved the resort and wanted to spend the entire time there in the waterslides, pools, and lazy rivers. They also really liked the free DVDs, and Shufleboard. My wife and I liked that there were hotubs next to all the pools and lazy rivers. All of which were well maintained. We all enjoyed the Super Easy Access to the beach, and the Tiki Hut and Crows Nest were great. Very reasonable pricing for good beachfront food. Live music at the Tiki Hut was just right for the family and could be enjoyed from the beach as well. Parking is a bit of a challenge, the garage was always full but there is a second garage across the street. Overall this is a good family vacation resort that we would return to again.

The staff at compass cove were wonderful. Very pleasant and helpful. We had a room with a kitchen, which is an absolute must! Our oceanfront room had the most beautiful view of the ocean which was my one request!
This resort is perfect for families with children of all ages. The resort met and exceeded our expectations. We will definitely recommend compass cove as an affordable quality resort!

We had a great stay here. Room was more than I expected after Suzi at the front desk got things straight. Thanks Suzi! Kids had a blast at the pools and lazy river. Will seriously think of going back!

Room Tip: We had an end room and we loved it, was quieter i think. View was great as well with waterfront room...
