Our upgrading and refurbishing of apartments at Club Olympus is moving along very nicely, however please note that these apartments are exclusively for the use of Club Olympus timeshare Owners and their guests.

We are very pleased with progress and the maintenance team have really swung into action. As we imagined, the improvements are happening faster as the team get used to the programme and become more familiar with the task.

 

Being able to bulk buy furniture, fittings and material in advance means that we can move rapidly to our next apartment without waiting for supplies.

Each kitchen is slightly different in size and shape so Designer Deborah Rhodes makes sure that the arriving team know exactly what to do when they arrive at their next project. Six apartments have already been completed and we are well on with the Seventh.

The 'Walk-In' showers are proving to be a real blessing. Over the years, baths chip or rust and can be slippery so our Owners very much appreciate the convenience of a 'Walk-in' shower. They are also easier and cheaper to maintain!

 

Overall, using robust materials will also make savings in the long run. Every item is put in to the apartments on the basis that it is easy to clean, repair or replace as time goes on. Everybody who has seen the completed apartments tells us that they very pleased with the results.

As refurbishment money comes in, it is 'ring-fenced' to be used only for the programme. We are so pleased at the patience shown by our members who are making their payments enabling the programme to leap forward. Every penny is carefully used to the maximum to ensure that our wonderful time-share owners get the quality that they deserve.

 

The Owners Committee and the team down at Club Olympus really appreciate the faith that you have put in the refurbishment programme and we want to show that we are delivering on that promise.

Please INSIST on seeing one of the apartments when you are next here. You will be delighted and again, thank you for your patience!

For many years our Bitter at the Poolside Bar has been Tetley's Smooth. Obviously a draft beer, not traditionally hand pulled keg beer. Primarily because hand-pulled beers don't travel well.

Recently Tetley's ceased all overseas distribution so we had to look for an alternative. (Click here for a great blogpost about Tetley Bitter by Richard Donkin!)

This was quite a big decision because we have quite a lot of bitter beer drinkers, especially those from the North. Our home-base has always been in Yorkshire so many of our guests are from the 'Northern Power House'.

After much debate, testing and tasting we opted for Caffrey's.

We had a fairly limited choice but settled on Caffrey's because it has a good flavour, travels well and pours right. Our customers feel that it is pretty good! However don't leave it to us to tell you, come and try it.

See you soon x

We have really enjoyed having entertainment on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons this year. They really have turned into exceptionally well supported Pool Parties.

The host for our afternoon entertainment is Gordon Slainey (pictured above). Gordon is a well known DJ from Oasis FM  Radio, one of the most popular English radio stations in Tenerife. One of our favourite Acts is pictured below.

 

Here is Comedy Elvis 'Leslie Presley' with Jodie Rhodes of Club Olympus. Our Elvis is really Leslie Moore, originally from Bolton in the the UK. His show is certainly worth watching, a great singalong and very funny.

 

Another fabulous act is the great 70' and 80's Band 'Black Lace' (pictured above). Originally from Yorkshire, Black Lace had mega-hits with songs like Agga-Doo, Come on and do the conga, etc. They go through all their hits plus much more. They are an absolute treat and original band member Colin Gibb with newer member Gordon King are brilliant!

 

A 'must see' is the Jersey Boys tribute show with Pip Brown (left). The boys go through Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons classics and get everybody joining in with their favourite songs. Frankie Valli has a much bigger repertoire that you can imagine and they all get a good airing. You will love it.

Shown below is Adam Saint as Rod Stewart.

Here he is doing what he does best. Crooning to the ladeeees! A great show and tons of fun.

Last but not least featured in the picture below are our ABBA'S Angels.

 

Rachel and Sarah really belt it out at the Poolside Bar and get everybody singing and dancing.

So there is just a quick review of some of the entertainment that we are featuring at the moment down at the resort.

Come and join us.

 

See you soon x
