“Nice view”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We were able to see the palace from outside the gate. It has beautiful architecture but we couldn't go inside. It was worth the 15
mintues we spent there.

“great walk in the morning”
Reviewed 1 February 2012

Muntaza in general is a very goos place for a morning walk. Give it a try you wont regret it. the only harm is that you know hat all these hectars were only for one person: the king. but you enjoy as well the sea breath and the nice restaurant there, like Rio, Beit Setti, Spectra and Roastry
