This was a fun place to stop and take a tour. The views from the entire front of the house is amazing. It is very typical of many older house tours, but unique in the way the people had to live in Puerto Rico. Be aware that you should stop to buy tickets by the huge cross on the top... More

This is a house worth touring. Spectacular views informative history the about the Serralles family & their rum industry. They offer tours in English & Spanish so call ahead for exact times. The tour was informative but our guide seemed to rush as we were the last tour of the day (hence the 4 stars).

The story behind the Don Q Rum is also a plus you learn about this place. Highly recomended

Owners of very large parcels of land, mostly farming sugar cane to produce sugar and molasses for rum manufacturing, made a lot of money and lived well. This family was no exception. The building in itself is majestic but touring the... More

I recently hosted my daughters wedding there and I am so glad I did. The Japanese garden was recently renovated and the new venue really enhance the theme of the place. The castle is amazingly beautiful and well maintained. The personnel is dedicated and extremely helpful. I cannot wait to see the photos.
