Have usually gone to the north end. But, my teenage sons are hoping we can go to the south end - near Compass Cove - because that is where all of their friends stay. So, looking for advice. It's been two years since we came down - and I remember some newish hotels in that area. I am familiar with Compass Cove, but what recommendations do you have for other, newer places to stay? We like having lots of pools - and a cool pool bar is a plus too!

We love the CC but what we did when looking for a place as I had only been to the SeaDip before, I did a virtual drive down Ocean Blvd using Google maps. Use the street view and you'll be able to see the new one stand out. Get the name off the signs and google them. This is how I found and decided on Compass Cove back in 2008.

Hi, Rick! Welcome to our message board.

The link below will take you to a google map of accommodations near Compass Cove.

http://tinyurl.com/6qovjag

I have heard good things about Dunes Village, Island Vista and Caribbean. You can use the "search" feature at the top right of any forum page to find reviews from our members.

Example:
The Dunes was very clean and they have a lot of activities for little kids.I can only keep highly recommending this place to anyone. PS they have the fastest elevators in any hotel i have seen except for the ones in Las Vegas

I'm sorry I can't be of more help, but since we live here, the only time I see local accommodations is when friends stay there.

How about the Hampton Inn? Its 0.5 miles North of CC.

Its really nice. One of the towers is only about 4 years old. I have not stayed here but our neighbors have.

Rick, you can't go wrong with Compass Cove, it has the most water amenities of any resort and a Tiki Bar out at the pool.
Y'all will have a great time there.

I am mostly familiar with the hotels of the south end, but was wondering if anything was new in the last 2 years, since our last visit. I'm finding that there isn't.

As you can see from my signature, we have been located more at the northern end of late. We are going to the south end because my teenage boys have more friends at that end during our break this spring. I think we have narrowed it down to either the Paradise Resort or the Grand Atlantic. (any comments on those places?)

By the way, I had to re-register for this forum. For some reason I couldn't log in with my old nick name, so I just re-did things. I was Arbond. We went to Florida last spring, so I have been gone awhile, but we are excited to be coming back!
