“Can skip”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Good looking garden. But one can safely skip. All the palaces are locked or under repairs. So o e has to see from outside the gates. Can be easily skipped and one can spend more time at other attractions. Especially it is o. The other side of main attractions.

“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..

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.
