Off-season perks! Low rates. No crowds. With all of the pools open, we had them to ourselves most of the time! Staff was helpful anf friendly. Clean rooms and ocean views ar a fraction of the cost we paid during the summer! Best of all for our family, very pet friendly during the winter months! A lot of pets, but...

Pleasant employees and accommodations. Very few suggestions: make sure kitchen in 619 is fully stocked (currently no measuring spoons and only partial set of measuring cups). The balcony was thoroughly furnished with attractive furniture. The check-in process takes forever! Not necessarily a long wait to get to the clerk, but all of the stuff they have to tell you.

We've been vacationing at Compass Cover Resort since 1989 and then it was Swamp Fox Resort. Several years we've stayed at the resort more than 2 times in the same year! Also, there have been several years we haven't even left the resort at all. It's an excellent and fun place to vacation with your family!! We've been coming to...

The staff at the resort that we interacted with were nice. The pool and hot tub areas were clean. The furniture was rather worn and the mattress in our room needs replacing as there are obvious sagging areas showing. The location has an amazing view of our the ocean. Parking is limited. The free DVD rentals are nice. The biggest...

Compass Cove has consistently served us well over the past few years. I have tried several different room configurations, and have found them to all be good. I choose the Jr. or Mini suite most often based on family needs. Pre paying for breakfast in the Compass Rose is convenient, cost-effective, and they have a varied selection every day. I...

After about 5 year away from this resort (better prices elsewhere) we decided to stay here again. I was a little disappointed this time. Check in was almost an hour wait but the front desk lady was nice. The room needed some attention (ice maker didn't work, stove was leveled with a piece of cardboard and you had to flip...

Great service, Great buffet breakfast, Wonderful Oceanfront room in the Schooner building 4th floor. The weather was very, very cold so we could not enjoy the pools. The outdoor ones were open and heated and the indoor ones were in another building.........they looked wonderful, just too cold to walk to them.

Compass Cove is a perfect place to visit in the winter that is dog friendly. The rooms are a little dated, but the service was great. We were missing pots and they delivered them right away. The DVD player wasn't working and they replaced it.

This place is a great place to stay in the winter. We shopped till we dropped at the mall & Broadway at the Beach! We ate at so many great places, (Logans, Margaritaville, King Crab, Angelo's, & buffet breakfast at the hotel), and enjoyed our hotel stay as we did 2 months ago. They are PET FRIENDLY in the winter...

We are back from our annual winter trip to the beach and we decided to stay at compass cove again. We had a room on the 15th floor with a beautiful view of the ocean. The pools are heated. The service was much better than in 2015. We may come back again.

“Although no sofa in the seaside room, I recommend the Oceanfront Jr. or Mini Suite. Mom & Dad enjoy a great view, and the kids sleep in the other queen bed in the rear bedroom. The two rooms are separated by a small kitchen & bath, so there is a modicum of space and privacy.”
