“Friendly staff make for enjoyable stay.”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My wife and I enjoyed our week stay at Compass Cove. The staff was excellent and friendly in every area: reservations, maintenance, pool, food and tiki bar services. The parking garage made it easy to park close to your room. Resort is convenient to shopping and the airport.

My family and I had an excellent time at compass cove resort. I would stay there everytime I visit myrtle beach. We swam in the ocean. We swam in the pools. We swam in the lazy river. My family is into swimming.

Room Tip: Balconies are great.

Good value for Ocean Front room. Furniture needs upgrade, patio carpet n curtains needs to be replaced, mold and mildew -disgusting. Kids had fun, plenty of pools. Bring Lysol! Did not eat in restaurant, lunch at the pool was good, plenty for price. Adult beverage was fair. Location a drive from attractions, or a very long walk.

We truly enjoyed all the pool options. We would go to the beach in the morning then return for pool time. It was nice to have the many varieties. Many choices for the kids and adults from lazy river, pools, hot tubs,etc. The dj and music was a great touch because it brought a vacation feel.

Our room was ok but smelles. The housekeeping service was not up to standards. We paid over $350 a day for our room...we should at least had our room serviced daily. For the eight days we were at the hotel, our beds were made twice and we had to call for towels, shampoo, etc. five times because our room was not serviced at all. That is just unacceptable! Housekeeping sees overworked and trying to get the minimum amount done. One housekeeper said she had to catch the bus and would it be ok if she didn't clean the room.

When we first checked in I asked the concierge were to eat and get final ideas as to attractions. I felt I had a good amount of suggestions and plans then she started the Wyndham pitch. I pretty much ignored everything she said because I didnt trust her and her agenda. I needed a concierge but what I got was a salesperson!

We took our kids to the kids club for a couple of projects. They were pretty lame. Cost $2 and were to be a 30 min project. They finished each in about 5-10mins and then just sat around. The kids told me another parent suggested to play games with the kids who were done. It's odd the insteuctors didn't know to do that! One activity signed for was called: boardgame fun. They only had two games! Chutes and ladders and candy land. My kids are 9 and 11. They don't play preschool games anymore! I was embarassed for them!

Don't expect any Bell service because there is no one around to help.

I came in for drinks with my family a couple of times last week at the Crows Nest. The service I received was great from the wait staff, however it took forever for a drink to get from the bar to my table. We loved this place in the past we come twice a year! We tried to get drinks from the bar but there was a long line of likeminded people both times. I would recommend going somewhere else if you want more than 1 drink, we did. It seemed so chaotic!

Green Features: I do not see anything extra for environmentally friendly practices

It is like living in a small city, park your car and you never have to leave the hotel, 7 pools, 2 restaurants and a bar all on the property. Great Ocean front views with superior servive. Highly reccommended.

Room Tip: Get the ocean front with private balcony

This was our third visit to Myrtle and the best stay yet. Compass Cove had excellent rooms, super friendly staff, and perfect pools. We were so pleased by this resort and will certainly return. The rooms where very clean.
