We were 7 families of around 20 members, including children. We went from Dubai by road. This resort is 45 minutes drive from Dubai. They have boat ride in mangroves, and snorkeling is possible. One boat accommodates 10 people. So, we took 2 boats. They charge 200 aed for each boat. It is one hour boat trip. We are provided with safety jackets even for kids. Only on the shore side the sea is quite deep. After crossing 200 meters from the shore, the whole sea area hardly 1.5 meters deep. Thats it!! We all just jumped from the boat, the whole sea water is only upto our knee level. There were island around us. We saw deer running, peacock dancing and plenty and plenty of flamingos. What a beautiful scene? wow!!. That too in just 200 aed!! But, the manager in the reception was not too friendly. He need to learn how to respect the guest. Then we took special permission and we used the swimming pool too. All enjoyed it. It is really a family fun.
