British child contracts cryptosporidium at the Aparthotel Alcudia Pins in Majorca

At Your Holiday Claims we have recently received an enquiry from British holidaymakers who have fallen ill on holiday at the Aparthotel Alcudia Pins in Majorca, Spain.

The Aparthotel Alcudia Pins is an all-inclusive hotel, promoted by tour operators including Thomson and First Choice.

A British family who travelled to the hotel were struck by illness during their stay. Their young child continued to be affected by the illness on their return to the UK and was eventually diagnosed with cryptosporidium.

Cryptosporidium is a parasite which often leads to gastroenteritis – an inflammation of the stomach or bowels resulting in symptoms including vomiting and diarrhoea. It is most commonly contracted through ingesting contaminated drinking or recreational (swimming pool) water.

Our holiday claims team has previously received enquiries from holidaymakers who contracted cryptosporidium at all-inclusive hotels in Alcudia.

In September 2014 we received an enquiry from a family whose child experienced vomiting, fever, and diarrhoea after contracting cryptosporidium at the Club Mac Alcudia. The hotel was plagued by illness throughout the summer months, leading to widespread coverage in national newspapers.

Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “The enquiry that we have received relating to the Aparthotel Alcudia Pins is concerning.”

“Contracting cryptosporidium can be very nasty, especially when young children are affected.”

“It is vital that tour operators and hotel management ensure that high hygiene standards are implemented and maintained in order to ensure guests are not exposed to such parasites.”

“I would urge anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Aparthotel Alcudia Pins to contact myself or a member of our holiday claims team for expert advice on all aspects of the claims process.”

Having never thought to have contacted a solicitor to pursue a claim for compensation before, I am glad that I instructed Your Holiday Claims to deal with my claim following a holiday illness I suffered during my stay in Egypt.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
