  • This was an amazing experience. Highly recommend!! A must do in PONCE, PR. You can see the whole city from this point. The views are spectacular. The Don Q tour is 110% worth it. I love this Rum, and to see its origins was really cool. Highly recommend 11/10.
  • I know this place is supposed to be magnificent, but I only went to an open area where my Sorority's activity was taking place and never moved from there, so I didn't get to visit the rest of this castle! Just the view of ALL the city of Ponce and surrounding areas was breathtaking, so I can just imagine how beautiful it is ( other members of the Sorority did visit the Castle). I promise to visit the next time I go to Ponce. BTW, you can schedule a tour of this wonderful place! The Serralles family is the same who have elaborated Don Q Rum, my personal favorite and my family's, and well known ALL AROUND the world. Puerto Rico is not only about Bacardi, you know.....🤷🏻‍♀️
  • Awsone place for the family.
  • Interesting home with lots of local history of the family that made Don Q the popular brand that it is. The tour shows you the inside of the house and a number of outside spaces. It wasn't rushed, so there is plenty of time to see everything and ask questions.
  • Excellent location for a half day adventure. The location has three attractions on the grounds. The museum tour is very much worth it for the price ($5) as the exhibits are very well preserved and it offers a window to how the Seralles family got to be one the most affluent families on the island. From the castle gardens, you get to see most of downtown Ponce and on to the Caribbean sea. There's also a gift/coffee shop for snacks as well. The staff was very friendly and made our visit a pleasant experience.
