What a gorgeous home, and fantastic location! We toured the grounds first, enjoying the gardens and water features, then the home. Wow! The home was more of a mansion than a castle, but it was interesting learning about the history of the family and how they created the Don Q. rum brand. The swimming pool has one of the best views of any pool! At the end we got to taste a few of the Don Q. rums in the cafe/bar.

Thank Louise M

Love el Castillo! The architecture, the history and the location is perfect! Love the views from the garden. Stop by the bar after the tour and get a Don Q Mojito to unwind!

What a nice castle . FYI To find the place wasn't that easy but if you decided to have a wedding , that will be beautiful. You can see everything from that castle.

This is an amazing place full of rich history of Ponce city and its industrial beginnings. Is very easy to get there and plenty signs to help you , and even prices posted easily for your choice of tickets. Parking readily available a cross the museum and free, and even more parking their Cruceta attraction as well. All tour guides are fully bilingual for a better experience, and they're always trying to find a way to make your visit better. From the receiving guard in the entrance to that last person you encounter there are so nice and willing to help you. Tours are in english and Spanish depending on your choice And availability at your arrival, first come first served as all places in the world. The guided tour takes from 45 min. to an hour and very specific and relevant to the place's history. Many snacks and drinks to choose from while you wait or even after your tour. The gardens are amazing for the perfect picture which will last you a lifetime. Yes!! This is my first review ever here, after seen some untruthful ones....it wasn't my first visit tho, I've visited many times with friends and family, and won't stop!!
