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

A great gastronomic delight in Spain is 'Jamon Serrano' which is basically cured legs of pork (follow the link to learn more). The meat is sliced super thinly straight off the bone and is fabulous.

A relatively new 'Tapas' bar, specialising in 'Jamon Serrano' has opened in Los Cristianos just at the top of the road leading down to the port.

Pictured above is owner Alonso Sanchez, just getting a plateful ready for Terry and I.

Normally it is accompanied by quality crusty bread and quite often with a tangy cheese.


Of course it is even better when enjoyed with a glass of excellent Rioja. This little bar is a must to visit if you are anywhere near Los Cristianos. It is beautifully decorated, combining a modern and traditional atmosphere. Below is the frontage of the bar so that you can recognise it.

Seriously, if you like a taste of Spain then this is a great little find.

Simple and delicious, you can't go wrong.

The refurbishment programme at Club Olympus is coming on nicely. Here are some shots of the completed Penthouse Suite.

Above is the Living Room area. You will notice thar we have relocated doors and windows to make better use of space!

A couple of new features to make the living room.....live!

New look bedrooms, with windows!

And en-Suite Bathrooms

And walk-in showers (as we are putting in all the refurbed apartments)

Second bedroom is much brighter and lighter than previously

 We have revamped the terrace area and if you look at the top right, you will see a 'Hot-Tub'

A feature of the terrace is a new 'conservatory'


Our Designer Debbie Rhodes along with Jodie Rhodes are doing a brilliant job and we appreciate their hard work. All the refurbished apartments are of a similar style and you will love them. Our Penthouse suite of course is a little bit special and we are sure that the owners will be very pleased.

The programme continues and again, can we thank you, our owners for your patience, imput and understanding.

We will see you soon.

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!
