“Great time!!!”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

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...

This resort had everything we were looking for. The price was right, the kids loved all the pools, and Happy Hour at the Tiki Hut really helped us adults feel like we were on vacation too! Even though the temperatures were a little cool, there was plenty of indoor water fun. The waterslides exit into the very warm indoor pool area, so you can still slide when it is cool outside. Even some of the outdoor pools were heated, so that was extra fun for our kids (ages 9 and 11).

The only negative was really the location. This resort is in the somewhat less desirable south Myrtle Beach area. It is still right in the heart of the action, it just has more of the older hotels nearby. I definitely wouldn't let that stop me from staying here again or recommending it to others.

Room Tip: If your room is right next to shuffleboard, you can hear people playing pretty early in the morning.

Green Features: The sign in the bathroom said they wouldn't replace towels that were hanging, but they replaced all of them each day.

It was fantastic! All of the staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and a nice size. We had a suite and it was amazing. More like an apartment than cramped hotel. The choices of amenenities were staggering and they stayed open late so we were able to play at the beach or go out and still take advantage of them. Very great place we will be going back. It was near the peir and out of all the major people traffic on the beach but still close to lots to do. I loved it!

For the price, you can't beat it. Good location to attractions, restaurants and the beach is right outside your door. The water slides were great, the kids loved them. My only complaint is that the water in the outside lazy river was really cloudy and dirty, that being said I do understand it's almost impossible to keep it sparkling clean with a hundreds of kids being in and out of it all day. The room was ok, decor was pretty old. The dishwasher and range were ancient, but again, for the price of the room what can one expect! They worked! Would recommend to friend and would stay there again!

I have stayed here 3 times prior so I was familiar with it. I took my finance here for 3 nights. It was very good except that we had trouble connecting to the wi-fi. Also do NOT get the burger at the Crows Nest. Tasteless. Outside of that, everything else was great. All the pools, the staff, and especially the tiki hut gets high praise.

Just got back from Compass Cove... so glad we decided to stay here, as the weather was NOT perfect for a beach trip. But, the resort more than made up for the weather. Thanks to all the indoor pools and hot tubs. So great to be able to see the kids play in the lazy river while i relaxed in the hot tub! Our room in the Mariner building was awesome (we had a 2 bdroom corner suite w/ kitchen & washer/dryer). Every room had an oceanfront view. Some of the outdoor pools were heated so we were able to use them even though it was not that hot during our stay. The beach was gorgeous and so close & easy to get to. The free unlimited DVDs were a welcomed treat. Saw a couple of new to DVD releases for FREE. This is a family resort so be prepared to see and hear lots of kids having fun. Also keep in mind that their are 3 buildings - Pinnacle, Schooner & Mariner all of which have pools & hot tubs on the premises or nearby. You may have to walk to the PInnacle to go to the larger set of pools. But, it's a short walk (5 min). The crow's nest restaurant was fantastic.. we ate there a few times. You can order and pick-up - which was great. The resort is about 10 minutes from the airport and a short drive to all the major attractions. We would definitey return with the family - especially with discounted rates!

Room Tip: Loved the 2 bedroom/corner suite in the Mariner building. Ask for a high floor - gorgeous views!
