Celebrate Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer on the Grand Strand, and Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina is the perfect place to kick off your fun in the summer sun.

In fact, while millions of visitors are beginning their annual treks to Myrtle Beach for summer vacation, guests at Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort can have a great time without ever leaving the property.

Featuring first-class accommodations, amenities and little extras that make the difference, Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort provides the ideal atmosphere for a fun and relaxing getaway to Myrtle Beach.

Perfect for families, friends, groups and golf foursomes, Compass Cove Oceanfront Resort has a little something for everyone. Here’s a look at some of the features that keep folks coming back every year:

Accommodations: Compass Cove is the first name in comfort, providing clean and cozy accommodations just steps from the Atlantic Ocean. Featuring four buildings (the Pinnacle, Schooner, Mariner and Indigo) that offer more than 30 different room types, Compass Cove has the right fit for couples, families and parties of any size. With rooms ranging from efficiencies and suites all the way up to two-, three- and four-bedroom condos. Rooms are outfitted with modern features, and each comes complete with a private balcony for hours of relaxation looking out over the ocean, resort, city or sunset. Best of all, they are only a short elevator ride away from some of the best on-site amenities in town.

Amenities: The beach brings first-time visitors to Compass Cove; the amenities keep them coming back. Featuring two water slides, indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs and a lazy river on the spacious oceanfront deck, Compass Cove has the equivalent of a water park on property. Kick back in a lounge chair and watch the little ones play on the Silly Submarine splash pad while the older kids zip down the Compass Cruiser and Schooner Screamer. Of course, you can take the whole crew for a short walk down the beach access to the ultimate water amenitity – the sandy shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

Food & Drinks: Playing hard can work up an appetite, and Compass Cove has you covered without leaving the premises. Start your day with a breakfast buffet at the on-site Compass Rose Restaurant, or grab a hot cup of coffee and some pastries to go at Compass Joe’s. Take a break from the heat and grab a bite to eat for lunch at the Tiki Bar on the oceanfront deck, or enjoy some air conditioning at the Crow’s Nest. Guests can also enjoy frozen drinks and treats in the ocean breeze at the Tiki Hut or the Crow’s Nest deck.

Fun & Games: Nothing adds to vacation fun like some good-natured competition, and Compass Cove delivers with a variety of games. The oceanside shuffleboard court is the site of some friendly matches, as well as the jumbo-sized chess set for some more cerebral contests. For a more modern experience that’s perfect for those rainy days, Compass Cove has an on-site arcade featuring a nice mix of new and old video games. The Kids Club offers fun activities for children and a much-needed break for parents.

Extras & Freebies: Sometimes the little things make a big difference, and Compass Cove offers lots of them. The on-site fitness center, gift shop, business center and laundry facilities ensure all your needs can be attended to without leaving the resort. Compass Cove provides a fire pit and grills for family cookouts, and guests who sign up for Brittain Rewards receive access to free and unlimited DVD rentals for a fun movie night in the comfort of your room.

If you and your crew do decide to venture out on the town, Compass Cove is conveniently close to the Memorial Day weekend festivities. The Military Appreciation Days Parade and Picnic (Saturday, May 25) are held at the nearby Market Common, and the Veterans March and Memorial Day Remembrance Ceremony (Monday, May 27) take place in the downtown district. But for guests who prefer to spend the weekend soaking up some sun and fun on-site, Compass Cove is the place to be this Memorial Day.
