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 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!

The main charity that we support is "Christel House" founded by Christel De Haan the former owner of RCI. 'Christel House' provides schooling and education for children in deprived parts of the world. As part of their fund-raising, a Golf tournament is held each year at several courses around the globe. In the UK it is held at Badgemoor Golf Club, Henley-on-Thames.

Club Olympus provide a team each year and always have a great time. Our team this year is pictured below with a couple of England Rugby Internationals who attended the event.

 

From left to right we have:- Iain Balshaw MBE (Leeds, Gloucester, Biaritz, England), Jono Darnbrook, Peter (Sedge) Rhodes, Jodie Darnbrook (nee Rhodes), Simon Shaw (Wasps, Toulon and England) and finally Tony Rhodes.

A great deal of money was raised for charity and the guys had a brilliant time.

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!

There are obviously quite a few Indian Restaurants here in the south of Tenerife and most are pretty good. However, a new one has caught our taste buds. What makes it even better is that it is in the brand new Siam Mall complex within easy walking distance of Club Olympus in Garden City.

The Chef was recently working at top Indian restaurant  'Bombay Babu' and has relocated to Namaste in Siam Mall. The menu is not complicated and retains all the Indian classics. Their lamb dishes are superb.

And here is me (Ivan Rhodes) thoroughly enjoying a lamb curry with a Kingfisher beer.

To find Namaste, walk to the Siam Mall next to the world famous 'Siam Park' Waterpark. Head up the escalators, turn left at the top and walk to the end. Easy!

Bon Provecho
