As we mentioned recently, we have closed the main swimming pool at Club Olympus for essential repairs. It should be closed for less than one week if all goes to plan. RCI and CLC, who regularly send guests to Club Olympus, were both informed some time ago about the closure so most people are aware of it. We would quickly remind everybody that we have TWO swimming pools at Club Olympus. Here is our Top pool pictured below which remains open.
Extra sunbeds have been placed here to cater for everybody. This shot was taken at 1pm today (Monday 17th May) and just look at that sky!
Even though we have to do maintenance on the pools, some people still like to stay in the area of the main pool so we have provided a portable pool so that our valued guests can cool down when sunbathing as you can see here.
We are removing all the discoloured mosaic tiles from the rim of the pool and replacing them. We are giving the whole pool a good scrub, filling any cracks, re-grouting and all the myriad little jobs that need doing on a facility that gets the use that our pool does.
Our Pool, because it is heated, gets a great deal of use throughout the whole year so it does take some 'hammer' (if you will excuse the pun associated with the picture above. Also, the water in Tenerife has a very high concentration of calcium and other minerals which take their toll on anything freshwater related.
It's amazing to see how big the pool is when it has been emptied! Here you can see Javi (pronounced Habbi) chipping away at the tiles and Nico on scrubbing duty.
The lads of our maintenance team are all involved to get the work done as soon as possible. We all hate the pool being closed and there is never a good time to do it because it is really the focal point of the resort, however we know that you understand that these things have to be done. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.
The Poolside Bar remains open of course! And the team are looking after everybody very well. Here below we see Angie and Tracy working hard.
And we have finished the construction of the "Lifeguard Station and First Aid Post" as you can see below. We are just waiting for the equipment to arrive from the Mainland and also for the signage.
We will keep you up-dated on what is happening so you can see progress as it happens.
Cheers and all the best from
The Team at Club Olympus
