I found this place to be much cheaper than the cost at the resort store. However, with the basic rums, the prices were the same as the duty free, although this store has MUCH more selection than duty free ever thought of. If you are into specialty or specific rums, than this may be a good option for you. Just... More

We went to the House of Rum to pick up our alcohol to take home with us. It was cheaper than the hotel so why not. 1 LTR of White Rum cost $5.20 CUC and 1 LTR of aged Dark Rum cost $6.95 CUC. If you smoke I saw cigarettes for as little as .40 cents a pack

Went and was way too busy. Couldn't get in. Back second time and was ok to get in but still busy. Lots of rum options with different quality and price range.

What a fabulous place to visit! I was not a rum drinker but after trying a bit of all the rums they brought out...my favourites were: chocolate and Legendaryo! The Sugar, Rum and Cigar tour were definitely worth the money and time😁 Note: 2 bottles of rum cost us 18 cuc's!

They always give me samples, the details of the rum, its reputation, and its ranking with locals and tourists. The prices are the official published prices. They have a large inventory of the best brands, including the Havana Club at $1,700.00

It's a nicely preserved building, even has a bar and an old register. The women who work there were really lovely. You can try a number of different rums. Note -- everyone tells you rum is more expensive at the airport. I only checked the prices of two rums. They were NOT more expensive at the airport. So, you can... More

I had no idea there were so many different types of rum. We had the option to try about 18-20 different flavours. Very cool place!
