The Mangrove Hotel is a city hotel located close to the lake and the Manar Shopping Mall. Although the hotel isn't on the beach, it is a five-minute drive away. The hotel is fairly contemporary with strong modern Arabic influences, which might not cater to all tastes. Due to the hotel's spacious and comfortable rooms, it has welcomed a fair range of guests from large families to the Iraqi football team.
The Mangrove hotel has lovely views of the floating Mangrove on the creek from some of its rooms and its all-day restaurant.
