Club Olympus at Garden City Tenerife

hi anyone who could help.

We have booked through RCI a one Bed apartment at Club Olympus because my parents are stying in Esmerelda something or other for one month next February. Since booking I have seen quite bad reviews and am a bit worried, have tried to change but will lose our exchange fee of £72.00. Pleeeeeeese can anyone let me know if you have been recently and what it is like. We are only going for a week and holidays are so special when you work hard for the rest of the year. Thanks for any info xxxxxx

I visited a friend there this march, he has bought an apt out there.

It is a lovely complex in a fantastic location, i've had friends who have stayed here before, and they've had no problems.

There are 2 pools on the complex, apts are nice, some are owned by RCI and others private.

Your parents are about a 10 min walk from you. So i doubt that you'd be staying round the pool everyday.

There are loads of great bars in this area

star bar

pheasant plucker

temple bar



and loads more

your also only a few mins walk from the harbour, puerto colon, which has great bars and is good beach.

I'm sure you will have a good time.

I use to go Garden City a lot, when I was last there this year April a family who had booked with RCI were disapointed with their room, and the complex. After a lot of running around and phoning reps, RCI had to move them to a better quality place, the thing is all sorts of people own the apartments on this complex some are really nice some are the pits! It has gone down hill over the years and if you happen to get a bad room...god help you, because the reps there are rude, unhelpful and at times arrogant! I wont be gong there again, but I love playa americas, All I can suggest is you ask for room information, RCI book apartments off of club olympus (time share) who also own part of garden city, complicated... If you are expecting luxury, change booking now!!
