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.

“Fascinating!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I've visited Lanzarote loads of times over the years, but visited Lagomar for the first time this year. Lagomar was fascinating. The building is incredible. Be warned though, there are a LOT of stairs. Parts of it were looking a bit tired and needed some loving care. Having done it once, I don't think I'd visit again, unlike a number other places on the island.

“Like something from a Bond film”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Great place to look around and have a coffee. Lots of nooks and crannies to play hide & seek! Count the steps in the tunnel.

They do have some strange rules about being able to serve drinks by the water and the gents toilet is weird.

I think you can now rent rooms and stay overnight.

“mine for a day, Omar Sharif”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Don't be put off if you have no interest in Omar Sharif because his transient ownership should have no bearing on your visit. This home again designed around the natural landscape is stunning. Cesar designed but didn't execute this one but it's fantastic. Start your tour on the outer edge down to the pool then up to the bar and living accommodation before working your way down through the tunnel to the cafe area.

Very friendly guy at entrance.

Cafe seemed expensive and we didn't eat.
Do watch out for the signs from the main road as its easily missed.

“Absolutely spectacular”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

We discovered this place by accident, it seems to be much less known than other Manrique-initiated projects. Its Omar Sharif selling point is irrelevant, this house stands its own ground and is just as interesting as the Manrique house in Tahiche. It's obvious that not many people have lived in it as the interior decorations are rather impersonal, but as a building it is very inspiring and absolutely spectacular. Great restaurant, too - deserving of a Michelin star.

“Completely bonkers”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

Like a Dr Seuss house designed by a architect!

Kids loved exploring the maze like passages, alcoves and rooms.

Photo opportunities galore.

Would love to have gone back later when the bar was open. I suspect the place sees some awesome parties.

Highly recommended.
