I did not find anything great at this heritage village except the view to Ethihad tower from beach. Food was good buffet at AED 79. They have some gift shop along with two mud huts and few camels to show old age Arabian life.

I would do a trip to Qasr Al Hosn... its in the heart of town and has a lot to offer. You could always do the Heritage Village in the evening. The village is interesting, but the Qasr has more to offer.
