Didn't live up to expectations this time unfortunately. Little things let the hotel down in a big way. Firstly on arrival we didn't get our complimentary glass of cava, not a big deal but it added up. The room was a bit shabby and not in keeping with 5 stars. Towel rail pulling from wall, light fitting in bathroom not...

We came for winter sun, comfort and good food. This hotel provided all we required; a great room with huge balcony and sea views, quiet at night except once when disturbed by shrieking guests at midnight, huge food selection in main buffet restaurant and excellent coastal walk to Rubicon harbour and beyond. The down sides were, the scrummage in the...

3 Star at best. The food was very poor standard, even the restaurants you could book, especially the Italian, the food wasn't edible. When we mentioned this to the staff, they didn't care. The drinks on offer for all inclusive were awful, seemed diluted and the cocktails were pre-made. Do not waste your money going here. The place was dirty,...

Billed as 5 star sadly it is 4 star at best. Booked it when it was advertised as the Dream Gran Castillo, it changed it's name to the Family and fun hotel, the alarm bells should have sounded, lots of kids dashing around everywhere like one giant pacman. We just wanted a nice quiet break no chance of that. Check-in...

First thing's first - this is a FAMILY hotel resort. I've just read a review from someone below who was complaining that there were too many kids in the place. You can't choose a family resort that is geared specifically towards young families and then complain that there are too many kids. Choose somewhere more suitable - like an adults-only...

Just got back from a one week break at the Gran Castillo Resort which was advertised as a 5 star resort. Although nice I do not believe that 5 star is an accurate rating for this hotel. We were given a superior double room with sea view room 1105. We had a sea view although as only on the first...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
