Wow, first reviewer on this.
To brighten up my hot and sweaty summer here, I bought a groupon for a 1 night stay at this resort.. included crab hunting in the evening, buffet lunch and breakfast. Its quite close, just near Sharjah.. on the way, you might be lucky and spot the millions of flamingos on the lagoon. Rooms werent as bad as we were told, in fact, not bad. Summer's not a good time go.. It was boiling hot in the afternoon, so all we could do was stay inside and get drunk on the cheap drinks inside the mini bar.. everything from Fosters to Mike's Hard, haha. In the evening, we went crab hunting at a lagoon, which is what the hotel provides and famous for. You get some mini sandwiches before you go, then you take a mini boat out to the lagoon around 7, stop at a deignated spot, and you kill these crab babies with a spear! it was awesome! im too nice, i didnt have the heart to gore these things, but it was a great experience nevertheless. after an hour, they bring you back to the resort, and u can shower and change, they cook the crabs for you and serve it with an international buffet.. all outside. you can hang out with your friends near the beach, make a bonfire, get drunk, as drinks are allowed, (or sneak in as we did, haha), and stay up all night.. and get ready to check out the next morning after the breakfast buffet.. which, Im sorry, was awful. dinner buffet was *somewhat* edible, but the breakfast was gross. would i do it again? as a groupon yes full price no.
