This is my 5th trip for members of our family to Compass Cove. We have recommended it to others and no one has ever been disappointed. We had another couple with us this time, their first trip to Myrtle Beach and they both loved it. We were in one of the two bedroom condos and it was spacious, clean, comfortable and the view was spectacular. The things we like the best are the breakfasts at the restaurant (delicious and reasonable) and all of the pools. Something for everyone. My college age daughter went last April with 5 friends and they had a great time, too. Will definitely go back.

We booked a ocean front room and recieved a view on the first floor of the bar. You couldn't even see the ocean at all. The bar was all the view you saw. Who wants to walk out of there room and see tons of people(no privacy) and very loud. We went to the front desk and we were told that is our room or you will have to pay $20 more dollars per night for your two night stay. We were also told that it was oceanfront because the room faced the ocean(NO VIEW). Well we did and got put in a two bedroom room, there is only two of us but we were told that was all they had even though it was the off season????? When we went to checkout they ended up charging us almost $70 more dollars for a two night stay on top of what our orginal price was surpose to be. We talked to them over 30 mins. and we were told we had stayed there and had to pay that price. We finally payed it and left because we needed to get home. They keep changing the price on us. I have never booked a hotel and had them do that. Our whole trip was ruined and the stress free vacation that we so badly needed didn't happen. Please stay at another hotel save the stress on your vacation. This place isn't that nice.

Stayed May 2010, travelled as a couple

This is the only place I will stay at in Myrtle Beach from now on! Everything about my stay here was incredible--oceanfront room, gorgeous beach; water park with pool, 2 lazy rivers, 2 waterslides, and cute toddler area. The water was WARM and most of it was INDOORS--very important to have on cool or rainy days.
The staff will bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy yourself and stay safe. During family karaoke night in the lounge, a rowdy drunk was promptly escorted out by security. There was always plenty of staff at the pools and the restaurant staff made sure there was always hot, fresh food at the breakfast buffet. No matter how busy the morning got, my coffee mug was always full.
I'll be back... Great location, reasonable rates and I didnt have to take the kids to an expensive waterpark!

We just returned from our second trip at Compass Cove. This time we went with cousins, aunts, uncles and granparents. Our ages ranged from 8 years old to 70 years old and we never heard once "I'm bored". There is so much to do at the hotel and surrounding area. The rooms were large and clean. The housekeeping staff was great. The pools were never overcrowded nor was the Tiki Hut. We ALL can't wait for our return next year.

My husband and I live 1 1/2 hours away from Myrtle Beach. Have stayed there 4 -5 times in the last year. We love the hotel. We have stayed with our 3 1/2 year old grandson and also stayed with my cousin and her husband. We recommended it to our daughter and she has stayed there. The place is fabulous and we are travelers. Have been to Florida, California , etc. this year. Love the view (right on the ocean) and the wonderful buffet breakfast, The only recommendation I would have is to make the lounge more attractive - offer more foods, and decorate it up a little more. Otherwise, perfect. The kid's pool, waterslide(new this year), etc. are great for children. Enough room the kids do not get in the way of the adult fun. Very friendly staff. Will stay there many more times!

This is a very nice hotel. Its oceanfront and lovely. The anmenities is awesome. The best is the indoor lazy river. They also have alot of heated tubs and many indoor and outdoor pools. One of the childrens pools has a cool submarine in it. The staff was very nice and the rooms were great. We got a great deal through hotels.com.
