“Has a lot of untapped Potential”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The gardens are great .. lots of green spaces and it has its own beaches .. The potential of this place is just being discovered with places like spectra & Zanilli's .. i hope more development reaches the beach area soon

“Green oasis by the Sea!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Excellent place in the evening to walk in the evenings. Silent and serene away from the madding crowd of the corniche. Also if you want to have a drink there is always the helnan plestine hotel by the sea!

“Picnic on the park..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Love their garden layouts.. Greenery everywhere! Robust colorful flowers and so many spots to just spread the picnic site around the garden.. Clean public facilities as well and some outlets for meals inside the garden area.. A place to return if you're staying for a little while in Alex..

“King Farouk palace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

I usually go to montaza during the whole year. i enjoy the the huge & beautiful gardens. It has couple of the best cafe & restaurants in towns. You must enter the palace and see. it has nice cabinas to rent on monthly basis and you can enjoy the sunny weather and the perfect sea.

“Blend in with the local couples”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

These gardens are popular with the local youths to hang out as a couple, away from all the hustle bustle of Alex. The gardens are green, clean and sport great views over the Mediterranian. There are some restaurants nearby.
