Stay in the third floor if you're looking for a great ocean view. Second is decent, first if you're searching for something loud. Overall, a great hotel and my family and I love spending our summers here :)

The family that runs this place is amazing and handles every problem quickly and kindly. Great family place or even just for a couple...

This repose is written to explain the disconnect that the reviewer and the Compass Family Resort seemed to have had last week. Firstly, it is imperative to know that the reviewer stayed at our hotel over a weekend for just two nights.
