it is a big area with lots of gardens, 2 hotels, nice sea view, you are not allowed in the palace as it is still used by the president, you can walk around, or have a drink in any of the hotels

if i am not mistaken this palace has now been converted to a hotel
it has a lot of history and we enjoyed the guided tour of the palace
it has lots of charm and has been well maintained and well preserved. if time permits it is worth a visit
