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.

Our 10 yr old daughter picked up a leaflet about this and insisted on going! It was a real surprise and we both loved it. If we return to Lanzarote we would go back to use the bar or restaurant. As it was we spent a very enjoyable 45 mins exploring all round, including the house. It was a very calming end to a day spent touring the island - sheltered from the wind, water, flowers, birds and quirky architectural features. I agree with the reviewers who comment on maintenance, but this did not spoil our experience. Not naturally an attraction of children, but the steps and pools and hidden corners made for interesting exploration.

Thank Lynn B

This attraction is entertaining, not only for the fact that it was originally built for Omar Sharif, but also for the way that it has been built... Well worth a visit...even if it is only for a nice cold beer sat by the pool .. :-)

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

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.

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..
