Stayed here for 3 nights on a holiday. As we spent an extended time in Abu Dhabi, instead of staying in one hotel, we tried several (Capital Gate, Eastern Mangroves, Fairmont, Viceroy).
Room: Very clean, large and well designed. We had a balcony facing towards the street. On our last night we stayed in a balcony room facing the mangroves. Without a question the view to the mangroves is preferred about the street view, however, when comparing prices, we found the difference in mangroves room vs street view room quite steep. Unless you want to spend excessive amount of time on the balcony, you may want to consider enjoying the pool are of the Eastern Mangroves and safe some money on the balcony view (in addition, the mangroves look nice, but can’t be compared to sea view in any other place). Our biggest problem was the bathroom. Whilst the bathroom was large and clean, the water pressure and temperature adjustment was about the worst we experienced on any continent we stayed. One could not control the temperature and it went from cold to (very) hot within seconds. We have reported this 2 times but no one came to fix it. Only on the third report someone looked into it. Unfortunately without success. The (friendly and professional) manager changed us to another room, where the same problem existed.
Facilities: Beautiful hotel, wonderful decoration inside and outside. The restaurants, large hallways, reception, all looks great and really makes you feel you are (and of course you are!) in a luxuous, relaxing resort. Whilst the pool area is on the small side, we never had issues finding a place to sit.
Location: By taxi it takes only 10-15 minutes to the Abu Dhabi mall. Taxi to Mushrif mall takes only 5 minutes. Even though the Eastern Mangroves is not in Abu Dhabi centre, it is no problem at all.
Reception/Staff: Everyone was very friendly and professional. The manager in the breakfast area was very kind and professional.
Breakfast: A very large breakfast place, tasty food, and by far the best fresh pressed juice selection we experience in the Middle East. We enjoyed the breakfast every morning again and each time something new could be discovered.
Overall: A real place to relax and escape from it all. Apart from the bathroom issue mentioned above, a wonderful place.
