This was my wifes first words as she entered our room for the first time & boy was she right. As we are middle aged with our kids grown up we are lucky enough to have stayed at quite a few places & the room we stayed in was probably the best. There was a large king size bed (no...

We stayed for 8 Nights on the 16th March. A porter came to meet us and we were checked in and given a glass of Sparkling Wine. A very friendly porter took us to a really lovely room having been given a room upgrade with a sea view. The room was over the bar and outside drinking area.It was a...

First impressions were good, a nice entrance and welcomed with a glass of bubbly. The room was not as expected and certainly not of 5* quality, but was comfertable (and away from the noise of the evening entertainment). The food initially was ok, not great. The staff were attentaive and efficient. The 'canteen' and the food was NOT 5*. (I...

Right from the start our holiday began with 5 star treatment. A porter collected our cases from the transport. We were given a welcoming drink at reception, and given a room upgrade to a luxurious suite. The quality of the food was the best we have had, fillet steaks, sword fish, squid .the variety is endless. The drinks are also...

We originally booked at another hotel in Playa Blanca but were then informed that there was various refurbishment going on during the daytime at the hotel so made the decision to change hotels and go to the Gran Castillo. We were really glad that we did as this was one of the best holiday hotels we have stayed at, so...

We stayed here earlier this month for 4 1/2 days, and really enjoyed it. The transfer to the hotel 1hour and 45 minutes but only 40 minutes to get back to airport (so many drop offs)! Reception and check in was great, I think the name of the woman who checked us in was Sabina? and she was lovely, really...

This hotel needs to focus on families or couples. Can't do both! If you like being woken by screaming children then this is the place. If you want to relax and lie-in then no chance. The various food sources on site attempt to provide choice. The buffet had the most choice. The Chinese (Asian) restaurant has the least and the...

Chose the hotel as it was 4/5 star. Reception staff great especially Grit & Roza. Seemless change of room when problem identified. Had large seaview room on 5th Floor with amazing terrace and excellent views over the ocean to Fuertaventura. Used the Sansofe and Chinese Restaurants together with the Buffet restaurant and always found a good selection of hot and...

A little undecided how to review the hotel, as in my opinion it is not a 5 star hotel however for the price paid it is decent value for money. We paid for a 2 bedroom all inclusive stay, the rooms are nice and very clean. However they do not have have the 5 star facilities. The sound proofing in...

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
