Guests at the Island Blue warn – “beautiful property but spoilt by sickness and diarrhoea.”

We have recently been reading of a “sickness bug” at the Island Blue, Pefkos, Rhodes.

The Island Blue is a 4 star Thomson Platinum hotel. The hotel is close by to the beach and centre and features two swimming pools a restaurant and two pool bars.

Holidaymakers have complained of a “sickness bug” at the Island Blue. Comments have been made such as “not worth the extra money” and “beware of illness.”

Visitors to the hotel have said that they have suffered symptoms including “sickness and diarrhoea.”

One holidaymaker has said that “there was also no prevention of this bug nor were there any signs up alerting other guests.”

Another family commented on their time at the Island Blue stating “3 of our party of 4 went down with sickness 4 days into a week long holiday and we are still suffering a bit now.”

A wedding party of 16 also visited the hotel and nine of them fell ill with the “bug”. Some of the children attending the wedding also became ill and needed to visit the onsite doctor.  One child needed “hydration treatment at the hospital.”

Other guests have said that the hotels manager was aware of the outbreak and “blamed it on an airborne virus.”

They stated “this unfortunate episode did spoil the holiday so have been put off returning as on the last occasion we also suffered sickness.”

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, comments: “It is important for hoteliers to recognise and act upon any illness outbreaks.”

“Illness abroad can be caused by poor food and/or hygiene standards and they must meet international standards.”

“I would urge anyone who has fallen ill at the Island Blue to contact Your Holiday Claims for advice on how to make a claim for compensation.”

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.
Emma Sheridan
I would like to thank Tracy Stansfield for the work she has carried out for me and assisting me in getting justice against the tour operator.

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.
Christopher Whitwell
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.
