We went here to get a different type of Ice cream. The service was bad and not very friendlly. The sugar free flavors are too sweet and more expensive than the rest. Not comming back!

The owner told me to try the corn ice cream and it was awesome. This is not a restaurant but an ice cream place. They have flavors no one else has. It is definitely worth a try! We actually went to the one in Sabana Grande this time.

Excellent. I strongly recommend the maiz (corn) ice cream. I have been visiting this place through the years and the quality is consistent.

I've always come here since I was a little girl and after 9 years went back while on vacation and the corn ice cream tastes the same, so good with the cinnamon on top! It's a must try!

This is not the average type of ice cream. It is more like a sherbert, soft and fruity. I tried a different flavor every day. They even give you a taste of any flavor you want to try. My favorite flavors were pina colada, coconut and mango. This is a must try if you are in Mayaguez downtown area.

Rex Cream is an unassuming, quick service, take out ice cream shop. Flavors include corn, guava, tamarind, soursop, grape, passionfruit, cream, pineapple, pistacchio, and many more. Portions are generous and are made with real fruit. Forget store bought ice cream and go to Rex.

The storefront isn't flashy, so you might drive right past without noticing - and the windows are tinted, so we weren't sure it was open yet. But we were glad we went in, anyway! The attendant gave us free samples, and even offered extra samples of their most popular flavors. Make sure you at least taste the maiz flavor. It... More
