Even though Mangrove is a 4 star hotel, the rooms, service, food, sheesha was all of 5 star standards. From the outside its just a simple building situated on a road opposite the creek & flanked by very regular looking shops, grocery & sheesha cafes. You would be looking forward to a very average stay because it doesn't really give u the feel of having a luxurious experience, but it only gets better once you have stepped in.
The staff is very accommodating and friendly, cozy ambiance, we got early check in and a late check out (on request) even during a busy season. The rooms were BEAUTIFUL...and if a 'Standard Room' was sooo stunning & spacious, I can only imagine the facilities of a delux room.
next morning we got to enjoy a wide array of scrumptious breakfast, absolutely delicious and the sheesha at the hotel was simply AMAZINGGGG!! ( for 40 bucks its even worth the 1hr drive from Dubai) moreover the restaurant manager handed us some 25% off coupons which made it even more worth it....
The only disappointment was the swimming pool, which is quite small, but the huge TV in the room kind of compensates and u still get to experience your lazy, cozy noon.
In all, 2 thumbs up for Mangrove Hotel... Wouldn't mind paying even a little more than what we did. Total value for money
