Owner description: Magnificent home and gardens open to public (museum,bar and restaurant). Built for Omar Sharif by Jesus Soto and influenced by Cesar Manrique (responsible for almost every architectural tourist attraction on Lanzarote). One of Lanzarote's top 10 I reckon.

“Beautiful find while driving around”
Reviewed 12 February 2014 via mobile

Beautiful and interesting architecturally. Built into the rock with lots of quirky features and lovely landscaping.
Could do with a little more attention to maintenance.
We had a good lunch in the restaurant

“SHUT for private filming ”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 via mobile

We only had a car for a day and when we arrived were told it was shut - really disappointing.

Both the restaurant and museum were not open to the public.

Dear Guillods,

We are really sorry for this incident. We normally plan this events previously, but this particular one was quite spontaneous and we had no time to organise it as we wanted. LagOmar wants to compensate you for this sending you an invitation so you can come and visit us on your next trip to Lanzarote. You can reach us at the following email: info@lag-o-mar.com.

Looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you for your comprehension.

“Museum opens its doors”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Whilst at Teguise market was given leaflet for LagoMar museum and restaurant, near Nazaret. A former home of Omar Shariff (which I gather he lost in a card game) is worth a visit. The place is built into the rock stunning concept but in view of steep steps in the house certainly not suitable for those with disabilities or the faint hearted. Not a place for those on a coach tour - limited parking. View from the top was good. Didn't eat in the restaurant though were tempted. Several pictures in one of the rooms of Omar Sharif and others. Beautifully laid out rock gardens. Shop selling good quality Aloe Vera which is grown in Fuerteventura and not over-harvested..

“Very Unique”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Lagomar is interesting and unique in that it's truly not one coherent residence, but is comprised of several sections and spaces that are built into the rocks slope that it butts up against. There is a lot of stair climbing in order to get to the different parts and rooms, so wear tennis shoes.
I will say that Lagomar is not for people who are unsteady on their feet, or afraid of heights. There are several very steep stairwells, lacking anything significant to hold onto to keep one from falling.

“Climb every mountain!”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

No this is NOT from the Sound of Music but visitors should be warned on entering Omar Sharif's former home that the climb to the top is not for the faint hearted! It's rumoured that he lost the house in a gambling session but my wife thinks he "threw in his hand" just to get rid of it! What there is [of the house] was nothing like the standard you expect a movie star to own. Take oxygen with you if you go!

Dear visitor,

First of all I would like to thank you for taking the time to review our business. It is actually right that there are many stairs and you might want to know this in advance. This unique house was built in a volcanic rock quarry and, as nature itself, has different levels. However, if anyone wants to avoid all this many stairs it is still possible to visit the first floor where there is a beautiful lake, volcanic caves and an art-gallery. On the other side, from the top you will enjoy wonderful views from the valley and the sea.
We hope your feedback helps other tourists who are not able to climb so many stairs. Thank you and wish you the best in your next travel.
