Great hotel
Lovely large room with balcony overlooking the beach. Delicious healthy food. Breakfast great. Staff organised pick up /back to Male. Local ferry worth checking out instead of motor boat. A lot of cats at the hotel if you like cats. Great place for surfers.

Hotel is located just in front of the beach, very close to cocks surf break. We had a beautiful ocean view. Personnel was friendly. Room is nice but no TV and towels and bed sheets were yellowish with some stains. Also showerhead requires replacement, water was barely running. We had to remove it to be able to take the shower. Also one morning we noticed some bites all around the body. Looked like bed bugs. So we changed the room and after that it was ok. However there are a lot of insects in the hotel and sometimes they come into the room.

Like: Good price and next to beach. Spacious rooms Dont like : They asked me for balance room payment when I have already made full room payment(except for US$15 tourism tax) via Expedia. Luckily I read a similar review and took screenshot of the amt I paid and the $15 I was to pay at guest house plus all my copies of reciept.

Fabulous time with family at Canopus Retreat.
Canopus Retreat is an amazing place for holidaying and is very sceneric. I spend 2 days with my family and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this fabulous place, which is right on the beach shore. The ocean facing rooms are amazing with clean linens and all the amenities provided, making it a truly 3 star accommodation. All the staff are courteous and willing to assist any time with smile. Luv to visit again, thus highly recommended.

Everything is excellent except for a smelly toilet. There is always a constant sewage leak smell in the toilet but everything else is great! Staff is friendly & approachable, food is decent, nice area and clean beach!

Amazing stay: Wonderful Place and Friendly Staff
We had truly an amazing experience at the place. The property is ideal for a romantic retreat and is right on the beach. Beautiful ocean view from the room balcony and private recliners on the beach was a cherry on the top. The management was very friendly and tried their best to make the stay memorable for me and my wife. The experience matched that of staying in a resort :)
