Like a grand castle which majestically dominates the seascape of the AtlanticOcean and its islands, the magnificent GRAN CASTILLO TAGORO is erected in the charming area of Playa Blanca, in the south of the volcanic isle par excellence: Lanzarote. With the conviction that elegance and comfort should come naturally, this Hotel is a tribute to 16th century Canary history and colonial architecture, inspired by the "Castle of San José" and the typical landscape of the island, blending in with the environment. The building is divided into different zones which maintain their colonial style, where the white facades and volcanic stone contrast with the backdrop of the deep blue ocean. A charming interior courtyard of Arab inspiration bathes the reception area with light, and the contemporary décor and pale colours create a warm and very elegant atmosphere. GRAN CASTILLO TAGORO pampers every detail of the rooms and suites, which have breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding scenery. They are decorated in a contemporary style, with marine touches, light-coloured wood and pale colours, creating a pleasant atmosphere full of light. The discerning selection of restaurants and cuisines serve Canary, national and international specialities. There are conference rooms featuring spearhead technology, and various outdoor zones for events of different kinds. The "Vitanova SPA" thalassotherapy centre provides the benefits of thermal seawater, and specific treatments for the body and soul. The Hotel features a wide range of facilities and services.

We stayed for 10 days in March. Weather was amazing throughout our stay, sunny but not scorching which was perfect for the kids. We stayed in a Merlin room ideal for the little ones, with a separate room for them to sleep in. From arrival we were treated with 5 star service

How much is it to upgrade to premium and is it worth it ?
Don't know didn't enquire about it. The drinks were fine, we were given good quality spirits, I don't think you'll need to upgrade.

How much is the 5D cinema? Is there a Shopping Centre nearby?
First one is free, then it's €3 for each person well worth it.

I don't think it is worth it. There are lots of quieter spots dotted around.

Hi we are staying here tomorrow for 5 nights does anyone know if there is an iron in the rooms please? Thanks
Hi, I presume it depends on the type of room you booked. We had a family room with sea view (main building) and didn’t have an iron. Hope my answer will help a bit 🙃
