We loved this place, on entering through the restaurant there is a large pool with walkways either side going up and up. As you climb the many stairs there are interesting features, the bar area, views, places to stop and look around, more steps up and down, twisting pathways, cubby holes which appear to be dead ends but where you...

Lagomar is the former home of Omar Shariff. Now a museum, bar and restaurant we visited early in the day before the dining options opened. It's a fantastically designed building but suffering from wear and tear. It's difficult not to compare with Caesar Manrique's house but unfortunately it doesn't compare at all for me. None of the water features that... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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... More

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.

We are residents in Lanzarote but have never visited Lagomar so decided to do so with some relatives. Even though its main claim to fame is that it once belonged to Omar Shariff, I think it holds its own as a very unique, and somewhat quirky building. Its always nice to see buildings built within the natural rock formation and... More

This is a much underrated attraction, just the story of how its one day owner, Omar Sharif, lost this truly unique house in a game of card is worth the visit alone. High up in the Village of Nazaret, just off the road from Arrecife to Teguise sits this beautiful house built into the rock face. From the outside it... More

This is a tour round the house that Omar Sharif lost in a bridge game. It is set on so many levels which have been carved out of the rockface you must be able to climbed several flights of stairs to enjoy the splendour of the property. Although we have been to Lanzarote several times before this was our first... More
