    Exquisite space.
    An extraordinary experience. It is exquisitely beautiful, and unmissable. Lots of steps, so wear flat shoes. We spent 2 hours here, had coffee overlooking the central pool. Best to get there early to avoid the crowds. Highly recommended.

    Don’t miss this - rent a car - inspiring and arty
    I could tell this was just the place for me and I pushed for the family to visit it on the day we came to Teguise for the famous large Sunday market. It was Easter Sunday and sadly it was closed so our plans to get a taxi up there was a no go. Hubby could tell I was disappointed and we hatched a plan to hire a car for the day at 35E and drive there one afternoon. It was a brilliant plan and meant we could go all the way up to the pirate museum castle as well. It also gave us the car to take an evening drive to the south of the island. I am so glad we made the effort because the place is astounding. So cool and smooth, rounded and full of little passageways and sneaky bits. My 5 year old enjoyed the higgledy piggledyness of the whole place and my brother even lasted longer than he normally would. I would recommend turning left and going up to the gallery as soon as you arrive. From there they have two chairs you can sit in and look down over the main lagoon. The sounds of the little birds and the wind in the palms, the peace etc. seemed magical. Even my daughter sat and hummed a little tune. The little steps through the tunnel delighted her and I loved all the well thought out artistic vistas and sitting areas. Plenty of places to sit out of sight with a picnic if you wished. I have to say however the restaurant on site and some scrummy looking bits and the salads were impressive - best I have seen on the island. We followed the recommendation of another reviewer and had coffee and slices of cakes. It was perfect and we were able to enjoy the spot a little longer while I fed the rabble. Honestly I wish afterwards I could have asked them to go visit the pirate museum for a couple of hours and come back for me. This would have been a simply Devine place to write or draw. One day I want to return with some charcoals and paper or sit somewhere writing a book or even better some poetry. I would like to have come with my artistic friend Thea and no one else. To have had her to talk about the artistic touches everywhere, the materials, the planting - everything. So tactile, so inspiring. Over on one side there are many no entry signs which seemed to hide off 2 rooms and private entry to a modern pool and private gardens. I wonder if you are able to stay here and if so I will be adding that to my ‘if I win the lottery’ list. Watch out for the instagrammers and their cameras hogging some of the best spots. I think I would go out of season like I did (April) so I could find that same peace again.

    Lovely and interesting
    Lovely and fascinating to explore around. Nicely designed. We arrived about 4:30pm it wasn’t very busy. I can imagine it would be hard to get around easily at busy times with crowds of people as many passageways are narrow and you don’t want your photos full of crowds of people (ideally). It took about an hour to look around. You could do it faster than that if you aren’t taking many photos or taking your time. You could stay here longer if you stopped for food/drink in the cafe. We didn’t do this. We were just happy exploring and taking photos

    Needs some upkeep and wow factor
    For a museum this it should more well kept. Furnish the rooms a bit. The gambling room just has a table in it. The house itself is beautiful. Would love to live there. This place should be rented and used. It’s beautifully located. Not sure why they call it the Omar Sharif house-he never lived in it and lost it gambling apparently. Tour should be more organized or more description. Would love to go there for drinks which is allowed in a cave overlooking the little lake they had.

    Stunning oasis
    Wow this place is absolutely stunning. Full of amazing photo opportunities. Such a place for calm. So many beautiful things to look at feast for the eyes. Worth having a drink just sitting there soaking up the beauty of it. We drove in our hire car easy to park out the front. Arrived approx 3pm. No queues only a handful of others visiting. Lots of steps to the rooms built into the rock.

    Beautiful house to visit
    A beautiful house to visit. A joy to get lost in the tunnels and caves in the house, each area something new to look at. We visited early in the morning which I recommend to experience it in the quiet. The cafe was lovely place to stop and marvel at the surroundings.

    Different kind of museum
    It's quite an amazing property, built into the side of an old quarry. There's lots of steps to negotiate but the climbs are well worth it to discover the place. Get there before the bus trips though - I'm guessing that when busy getting around would be a nightmare.

    Amazing
    I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around Omar's house. Spectacular. Even though I have mobility problems I was determined to see it all. Scariest bit was walking across the wooden steps over the water but I didn't have to do that. 😆 The café serves great food with the best views up to the caves. We visited at 2pm. It was not crowded so I wasn't worried about going slowly.

    A beautiful location
    A nice little cafe at the entrance - good for a cup of coffee with a view of LagOmar. Interestingly the floor of the restaurant is a bit precarious and needs attention. The museum is beautiful with lovely views appearing as one turns a corner. Slight problem are the steps which are very steep in places and due to the design it is difficult to have railings everywhere. The rooms of the house are really interesting and again there are amazing views. Well worth a visit but be aware of all the steps. Very Manrique.

    What a surprising place!
    Been to Lanzarote a couple of times and love all the Cesar Manrique sights..but this was new to us..and what a delight! We spent several hours wandering about this unique ‘house’ ..just made me smile..tunnels and lots of steps to interesting spaces and rooms with fabulous views..sadly went on a Monday when the restaurant and bar were closed..will definitely go back and spend more time! I think it’s a highlight of the island!

We loved it. Amazing design, great metal sculptures, very relaxing. Fun to see how 'the other half' lives. We had a relaxing and reasonably priced coffee by the pool.
