Every Saturday morning we have a great time at our Welcome Meeting, although it’s more of a party than a meeting! Free Bucks Fizz flows freely and it gives you a chance to meet all our key team members such as Resort Manager Alan Gibbons shown below.
Important information is passed on to you at the meeting as well as lots of advice on where to visit, places of interest, particularly good restaurants and security issues. In-House Team manager SuzanneÂ White can be seen here below dispensing Â words of wisdom to our owners and guests.
Suzanne briefly covers a number of topics including how to deal with street touts. Over the years, the number of timeshare street touts has dwindled but there are still an active number. In the main they no longer represent an individual resort. They tend to be part of “Discount Holiday Pack” companies. Trading standards officials have given many warnings about these companies and advise people to steer clear of them.
The OTE (Organisation for Timeshare in Europe) recently said “In the UK the Office of Fair Trading (OFT) estimates that 400,000 Britons lose Â£1.2 billion annually to bogus Discount Travel Membership Clubs or (DTMCs).
Tenerife has its fair share of these companies. They have very convincing sales people and very credible looking offices, however many people have spent fortunes with these companies and have little or nothing to show for it at the end. Suzanne and the In-House team will assist with any questions you might have about these “Discount Holiday Club” operations. It’s worth being at the Welcome Meeting to get that advice.
However, in amongst the serious stuff we do have a great deal of fun. Dave O’Neill, our resident compere, has a prize quiz, novelty bingo and in fact any excuse to give away Club Olympus T-shirts and the odd bottle of novelty whiskey!
When you are staying at the resort, please make the worthwhile effort to attend our welcome meeting. You will enjoy it and you will find it informative!
