Over this winter we have enjoyed spectacular weather in great contrast to the weather back in the UK. The early part of 2018 saw the UK enjoy a fabulous Spring and Summer which definitely affected the number of visitors to Tenerife and not surprisingly so. In fact here below is me (Ivan) swimming in the River Wharfe in the Yorkshire Dales in June of 2018.

We also enjoyed terrific weather in Scotland in August. We often stay on the Ardnamurchan peninsular in the North-West of Scotland.

Concerning the weather, the locals say "it's either raining, or it's about to rain" but not so this year. Here below is myself and brother-in-law Jonathan Darnbrook on one of the beautiful beaches.

BUT, we all know that our UK weather is not guaranteed, so please don't forget us if you need some sunshine during 2019. Here are a couple of shots showing the resort 'Club Olympus in Garden City' from the last week or so.


We really have and are experiencing cloudless days. Our guests are thoroughly enjoying our normal Winter weather.


Above is our lovely and peaceful 'Top Pool' which many guests prefer. The picture below was taken at 2pm on New Years Eve. Not too bad for the time of year!


One thing that everybody loves about Tenerife is the quality of light. It really does lift the spirits and banishes any S.A.D. Here below is a photo taken last week catching the Kite-Surfers off El Medano. The picture was taken at 6pm.

If you want to come and stay with us, please call Sue on 0034 922 795606 for prices and availability. We look forward to seeing you soon

After great Winter weather and a beautiful if slightly patchy Spring, Summer is roaring in with fabulous weather. The UK has had some good days but seems to be back to grey skies and drizzle in July. At Club Olympus in Tenerife we are all enjoying the onset of our Summer.

The deep blue skies of Winter and Spring have given way to the hazier skies of Summer as you can see below.


With temperatures 30 plus, the Pool is the place to be! The resort is busy and our Reservation department is telling us that we are pretty full right through to November.

In July we had the Club Olympus AGM which was an opportunity for the Rhodes Clan to be together. As you know, Club Olympus is a family business run by the late Hedley Rhodes' four kids, shown in the photo taken a couple of days ago on the Resort.


Kids! I wish. Anyway left to right we have Peter, Jodie, Tony and Ivan. Peter (or Sedge as he is better known) and I (Ivan) live out in Tenerife whereas Tony and Jodie are in the UK. As you can see, we are not exactly starving! We still try to retain the family feel that Dad insisted upon and do our best to make ourselves available to our Owners, Guests and visitors. If you need to talk to any of us call (UK) 01535 640050 or (Tenerife) 0034 922 795606.


We are looking forward to seeing you all down at the resort during Summer, so get booked, get packed and get your bones down orologi falsi svizzeri here for some serious sunshine!

We couldn't leave you without a shot of Ray Karlsen, our In-House Manager about to tuck into a giant Ox T-Bone steak at one of our favourite restaurants 'Era Las Mozas'. He looks a bit serious doesn't he? So let's leave you with a happy sunshine shot!


See you soon!

We have enjoyed a superb winter here in Tenerife this year. While much of the UK has suffered a wet and windy year so far, the Canaries have had record sunny days.

At Club Olympus we began providing a degree of entertainment on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. This has very quickly become a great hit.

Our compere Gordon Slayney (pictured below) does quizzes, Karaoke and live entertainment. We totally understand that Karaoke is not everybody's 'cup of tea' so those who don't like it generally retire to our quiet top-pool. We endeavour to give people what they want, be it peace and quiet or a more lively holiday experience.

A great feature of Tuesday and Thursday party afternoon is the world famous Comedy Elvis "Leslie Presley". Leslie delights in taking requests and intereacting with his audience. He is seriously good fun!


and..........he really does think that he is Elvis!

The whole Pool area gets involved and has a blast. As mentioned, Karaoke isn't for everybody but many people do enjoy it, especially the kids who love to sing. (If I hear 'Let it go' from Frozen one more time this year!!!!!) Guess what the girls below are singing?

 We have been really busy too throughout the winter and our bookings are already through the roof for next year so get booking if you want to join the party!

Who DOESN'T want ice-cold beer, ice-cold errrr ice-cream and glorious sunshine?

See you soon!

Brian Bottomley was a dedicated member of the Committee team at Club Olympus. He loved Club Olympus and Tenerife and he loved his holidays. His Yorkshire 'grit' was legendary as was his courage in battling serious health issues right to the end. He was a true friend to us all at Club Olympus.


His wit, intelligence and sense of fairness have been a part of the Club Olympus culture for decades. We pass on our deepest sympathy to his wife Josie and to all of Brians family.

We will miss him!
