Reviewed 10 November 2013

We make the drive from Oshawa (near Toronto) to Myrtle Beach every year in October for a golfing vacation. We stay at Compass Cove every year, and it's always great. This year we noticed several improvements. The front desk opened up an extra section so that they can check in guests more quickly. The staff is really friendly. Every single staff member we passed, never hesitated to say hello, or hold a door open. The poolside lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas are new, and the landscaping is impressive. The fountain is gone from the front parking area which makes it much easier to unload luggage and bring it in the front door of the lobby. The Compass Rose, as usual, gave us excellent, friendly service every morning. Jennifer, Tammy, Betty Ann, Peggy, etc. are friendly and take care of all your needs. Paul, the Manager of the Compass Rose is just as friendly and approachable as his staff. The free dvd rental service for guests was a welcome addition. We had no problems with the wifi signal strength in the Pinnacle building. We have been making the journey to Myrtle Beach since 1986 at least once a year and sometimes twice and the Compass Cove is one of the best places we have stayed. The last few years we have been coming with a group comprised of golfers whom we take care of. We deal directly with the Golf Department regarding reservations, tee-off times, etc. We find the staff, Jeannie, to be helpful, efficient and a joy to work with. Our group really enjoys the special night that the Compass Cove provides for the golfers. The assistance we receive from the Golf Dept. goes above and beyond our expectations. We have already tentatively booked rooms for 2014 when we will bring another group of golfers to this location.
Stayed at the Compass Cove October 19th until November 6th.

Room Tip: North side Pinnacle Ocean Front Suites are a bit larger.

Stayed 3 nights in pinnacle building. Great room with view of ocean. We have stayed here many times in the past and will definitely stay here in the future. Love the pool area and the Crows Nest for a drink or snack.

Room Tip: In my opinion oceanview is as good as oceanfront. Have great view of beach from both

I would give this 5 stars as far as places at Myrtle Beach go. But even though they have great water amenities, they are stingy on heating 2 of the lazy rivers. People stay in the Pinnacle Building in the off season so they can take the elevator right down to the pool area without going outside except to get on the elevator from the room. But they barely heat the lazy river, their biggest and best one, in this building. You could stay in it for only about 10 minutes before it became uncomfortably cool.
We stopped coming here years ago because of this, but decided to try it once more this year. Too bad. The lazy river housed in a separate building was actually VERY hot, to the point that some people complained! Doesn't make any sense. They keep the grounds immaculate. Everything about Compass Cove is first class except the comfort of their furniture, but even that is pretty standard on this beach.

My Husband & I bought a Groupon for our honeymoon & we were a little nervous about what we were getting. From the moment of check in we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly. The room was great. Very clean, very comfortable. The amenities were very nice. The pool, hot tub, & lazy river were nice & clean. We did not have the kids this trip but did take notice that they have lots to offer for families. We would highly recommend this hotel to others & will most definitely be returning.

We stayed in 3 bedroom condo and it was very nice and clean. The oceanfront view from the living room and master bedroom was perfect ....the entire wall is glass. The balcony was huge with an amazing view. The exterior is a lil dated but didnt bother us.....the open smoking in common areas was a nuisance but we just moved away from it. The restaurant in the hotel was fantastic. Midlevel food for decent price and the service was great. There were some issues with the charge of the room as I spoke with the online call center and they didnt relay info to hotel but hotel fixed it. The young guy at the front desk didn't give us directions to our room (and after driving 15 hours I didnt think to ask) which was a slight hassle because we were in the building that we didnt even realize was part of compass cove. But overall I recommend this place. Im also an avid bug checker......I dont even let my family in the room until I have checked all beds and hiding places .....the room was very clean.

Room Tip: my family and I shared 3 bedroom condo to offset cost

from check in to the amenities, food and the ocean view condo...we would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. it is a great location in Myrtle Beach, SC located on the south end close to everything yet far enough away to be nice and quiet. they have numerous indoor and outdoor pools, lazy rivers, water slides and hot tubs. there is a nice tiki bar with great drinks by the ocean and nice bar with great drinks and food inside the resort and the best breakfast buffet on the beach. the condo was spacious, well equipped and nicely decorated. they also offer free dvd rentals so we were able to catch up on some movies we have been meaning to watch.

Room Tip: ask for ocean view or ocean front
