Swimming pool Refurbishment
The swimming pool works are now complete following work carried out during a five-week period throughout the month of May. After a slow start, the project soon picked up pace and finished virtually on time, bar some minor uncompleted work in the machine room below the Club House.

It is not always appreciated just how much work goes into a project of this scope, and we have selected a few photographs to illustrate some of these details.

One of the most important aspects is that the children’s swimming pool has now been completely separated from the main pool with new independent filtration. Additionally the main pool has been redesigned with gradual sloping including a new beach type entrance, and the filtration for both pools is completely new and of course independent.
By Day Five the majority of the mosaic tiles had been removed, and all of the old equipment had been stripped from the machine room.
Day Ten and the new beach entrance started to take shape. Also the ledge that ran across the side as seen in the picture was being eliminated.
By Day Twelve two large new filters were being installed in the machine room, each with their own pump.
By Day 23 the pool works were nearing completion and new pool bar bridge had been installed.
The pool was complete and refilled practically on schedule. The pool separation can be seen and one can just make out that the children’s pool sports a dolphin mosaic.
La Isla and La Mesa
Summer is officially here!
At La Isla this means that we will be extending our opening hours until 8pm, giving you the opportunity to make the most out of the La Isla seating area sun trap, catching the last rays in the warm evening glow. Our chefs are also trying their hand at baking, so keep an eye out for the latest sweet surprise at La Isla!
La Mesa continues to grow and evolve, with our recent table dressing change we brought a more functional vibe to the restaurant and soften the tones inside. Altogether making it a more relaxing and informal environment to enjoy your evening meal. We always look to keep the menu fresh and for this summer we have introduced a handful of lighter dishes to spice up your summer holiday nights out.
From everyone at La Mesa and La Isla we hope you have a great summer and we hope to see you soon!
Off the beaten track - La Orotava
In the last edition of the newsletter, we touched on the historic city of Laguna, and the town of La Orotava is another locality steeped in history having been founded by the Spanish in the Sixteenth century and thus becoming the island’s first town.

Originally prosperous because of the banana plantations, vines and sugar cane, La Orotava is home to impressive mansions with traditional wooden balconies and interior courtyards.

The casa de los Balcones and the Casa del Turista both have wonderful interior courtyards and are open to the public. There is also a small museum and wine tasting the Casa-Mendez Fonseca.

The houses are beautifully maintained, and in 1976 La Orotava was declared as an official Site of National Historic and Artistic interest. The church of Nuestra Señora de la Concepción is certainly worth checking out.
Other buildings that one should look out for are the Calvario chapel, the San Augustin church and the San Benito Abad monastery.
Stargazing in Tenerife
The Canary Islands are recognised as one of the best places in the world for stargazing, and in fact the clear skies are even protected by law, although the recent introduction of new LED lighting with their bright white lights are proving to be detrimental for the island’s stargazing.

The best place for stargazing on the island is at the Teide National Park, and in fact the only building open at night is the Parador hotel. At 2000 metres and with crystal clear skies, it is possible to see 83 of the 88 officially recognised constellations.
Fun with Oscar
The summer is kicking off and Óscar is busy adding some new games and activities to run alongside the regular activities. There are more pool activities with Aqua Gym, waterpolo and pool volleyball. Remember during your stay to join in with the activities organised by Oscar. There are also plenty of other things going on including Pool, Table Tennis and Darts competitions plus the ever-popular Bingo competition.

There are also activities for the young including drawing and face painting.
Forthcoming events auditorium de Tenerife, Santa Cruz

El Médano weekly market (Saturday’s 9am to 2pm)

Golf del Sur weekly market
(Every Friday from 9am to 2pm next to the Agua Marina, Albatross and Santa Bárbara Hotels)
We also have a late check-out service allowing clients to stay in their apartment until 3p.m. The charge for this is very reasonable, and is proving a popular Choice. Needless to say, the service is subject to availability.
We highly recommend this coming season

One of the most famous and best kept parks in the world, that just keeps getting better. There are fabulous shows that include parrots, sea lions, dolphins and the world-famous orcas. There is plenty for kids and adults alike, with Katandra Treetops, penguins, aquarium, gorillas and so much more. The park is regularly voted on Trip Advisor as one of the best parks in the world.
This is one of the best water theme parks in the world, so good in fact that in 2014 it was voted as the world’s best water park and has the best trip advisor rating. The park keeps on adding attractions, with each new one taking the thrills to new levels.

A visit to the highest mountain in Spain is a must when visiting Tenerife. There is a cable car service, and after that a path to the peak that rises to 3718 metres, although you will need to be in good physical condition to manage the walk. The national park itself offers a fascinating landscape, with many viewing points offering insights into the origins of the volcano and the island itself.

This is an amazing excursion for the truly adventurous, with a variety of flight options, for a truly unforgettable experience. One look at this picture and you can see what we mean.
