“Faeces, urine and vomit” close swimming pools at the Xperience St George Homestay

sick sid

Two months ago Your Holiday Claims published an article relating to an outbreak of illness at the Xperience St George Homestay, Sharm El Sheikh.

We are saddened to be reading of outbreaks of illness once again.

Holidaymakers have reviewed their holidays on TripAdvisor and have said “I have never had such a horrendous holiday!!!”

It seems that hygiene is a major issue at this hotel. Many reviewers are slating the property, saying “the hygiene at this hotel leaves a lot to be desired!”

Many reviews also comment on a code brown scenario and have said “we witnessed the main pool being closed at least 10 times, due to faeces, urination from the side of the pool and vomit contaminating the pool.”

Sadly, reviewers have suffered symptoms of diarrhoea and stomach cramps at this hotel. Complaints appear to show that visitors to the Xperience George Homestay fell ill within a few days of arriving. One couple said “we were ill within days of arrival with diarrhoea & stomach cramps.”

Another said “it started the third day after I arrived and I have honestly never experienced anything as horrendous in my life.”

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, said: “It is very worrying to be reading new reports of illness at this hotel, just when we thought they had managed to control the problems.”

“Illness at the hotel could have been caused by a number of issues.  However it is realistic to suggest that illness at the hotel may have stemmed from the swimming pool water.”

“Contaminated swimming pool water can result in many infections, including E. coli, Shigella, Cryptosporidium and Giardia. If you experience any of these infections, the symptoms can be very unpleasant.”
