Our transportation service offered us a quick stop here on the way to our to an excursion. The samples of rum and rum cake were very good. We purchased some of the flavored rum and it was package by the store and delivered to the ship leaving our hands free to enjoy the rest of our day.

We toured the Rum factory in Grand Cayman with a taxi driver who was from the Grand Cayman!! It was awesome and the taste of the sample rum cake was delicious. They has so many flavors and the rum itself was on point. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the island. NOT through the cruise ship though. Their... More

The cake was delicious. They're cheesecake was pretty good too. I think I enjoyed the scenery the most though. Very relaxing. A small spot, but has a very beautiful view.

So the rum cake does have a rum flavor that is ver strong and present. ITs the one thing i remember most about the cake the very strong flavor of rum. The restaurant has good food, a great atmosphere.

I went to purchase some rum cakes here and the staff was very rude and unfriendly. Staff didn't want to honor the coupons given to us on the cruise ship for discounts at that store even after a whole group of different customers told them they had to honor them. They still refused. Will never go back.

We were able to look through a large window to see how rum cakes were made. There's no formal tour, but there is a tasting area to sample the different flavored of Tortuga rum. We likes the vanilla, coconut and mango rums, but decided to just purchase the rum cakes which were delicious. There's also a caged area on the... More

This was a big disappointment. We stopped in because we wanted to see how rum is made. Tortuga Rum isn't made in the Cayman Islands -- it's made in Jamaica. Yes, the rum cakes -- which are delicious -- are made here, and for about thirty seconds, it's interesting to watch them make the cakes. But you're staring through a... More

Visited the Tortuga Rum Cake factory briefly on a tour excursion! We were offered numerous samples of different flavors of rum cakes. Very delicious! The chocolate rum cake was my favorite. We also samples a bit of rum while we were there. We had the option of purchasing cakes to take home which we did not. And I do regret... More
