Enquiries continue after illness outbreaks at Coral Sea Water World, Egypt

British holidaymakers are continuing to choose Your Holiday Claims to pursue compensation claims after falling ill at the Coral Sea Water World Resort in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.

At Your Holiday Claims, we previously reported on the outbreaks of illness and confirmed cases of  Shigella Sonnei.

Many others have reported suffering illness at the Coral Sea Water World Resort through the review website TripAdvisor.

One holidaymaker stated that they continued to suffer from the illness on their return home.

They stated: “I do not normally leave reviews but as I am still suffering illness 4 days after coming home I feel I need to give the feedback.

“2 days before leaving the hotel I fell quite seriously ill again with stomach cramps, sickness, and diarrhoea.

“The hotel tried to cover the magnitude of the infection situation. Things could have been done better.”

Others have suffered “significant weight loss” after falling ill.

“The food was good at times, but the hygiene in the restaurant was poor. Like many others, we all came down with the mystery illness very quickly and we spent a lot of time in our room with crippling cramps and fever.

“My husband and I are still recovering and have experienced significant weight loss.

“First Choice staff  – their response to our complaint was ‘sorry lots of people are sick’. We had no communication at all from the hotel or First Choice staff regarding signs/symptoms/management of the bug, or advice on how to reduce the spread of infection.”

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented on the outbreaks: “We are continuing to receive enquiries from British holidaymakers who have fallen ill at the Coral Sea Water World Resort in Egypt.

“It is a huge concern to read further reports of holidaymakers suffering illness both during their holiday and with symptoms continuing on their return to the UK. Many of the reports on TripAdvisor appear to indicate a lack of action from both the hotel management and First Choice.

“I would urge anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Coral Sea Water World Resort to contact Your Holiday Claims as soon as possible for advice on all aspects of the claims process.”

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

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.
