“The White House...I meant Beige House. lol”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Couldn't really visit it like you can visit the White House in DC but it was okay. Took really cool pictures outside of the armed gates.

“Good for a Picture”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Elegant building of the 1940 typical of that period in the pro american Caribbean countries. There is not much you can do other than to take a picture of it or in front of the gate. Visits are not allowed.

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This was one stop on our tour of Santo Domingo, It was beautiful and the grounds were exceptionally well kept. But we had stand outside the gates and didn't get to go in or get very close. There were armed guards everywhere. Still neat to see but more for a drive by than a whole day adventure.
