After reading numerous reports of people that have been unwell during their recent holidays at the Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh hotel in Hurghada, Egypt, our holiday illness lawyers are concerned for those who are due to stay at the hotel and urge British holidaymakers that have recently returned to the UK to contact us.
A gentleman from Manchester who has just returned from the Tropital Sahl Hasheesh hotel in Hurghada said on Tripadvisor: “My holiday was ruined by a stomach bug picked up at the hotel. Not just my family but others too.
“We had to pay expensive doctors fees and be put onto a drip.
“One of the swimming pools was closed due to being unsafe and the holiday representatives were constantly mithering around the pool for spa treatments. The list goes on.
“It has put me off going abroad, it was a very bad experience and it wasn’t cheap.
“I noticed that a few reviews had been removed mentioning the stomach bug so I hope that mine stays on so that people are aware of this, especially those who are travelling with young children”.
Many other British holidaymakers who stayed at the Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh hotel have also described their experience as being the “worst holiday ever” and many have said they will “never go again”.
Tracy Stansfield, a highly qualified experienced solicitor at Your Holiday Claims commented “Outbreaks of illness occur in hotels where hygiene standards are poor or where there are breakdowns in food and hygiene practices.
“In the past three years we have experienced a surge in enquiries relating to outbreaks of illness that have occurred in many hotels throughout various holiday destinations in Egypt.
“We have successfully handled many holiday claims for British tourists across the country. Based on the number of reports that have been recently made on Tripadvisor, it would appear that more cases of illness may arise and we are concerned about the welfare of those who have yet to travel to the Tropitel Sahl Hasheesh hotel.
“I hope First Choice carries out a full investigation into the cause of the latest outbreak and addresses matters immediately to prevent future holidaymakers from becoming unwell .
“I would urge anyone that has returned to the UK after being unwell during their stay here to contact us for help to pursue a claim for compensation for themselves and any family members that have also been affected.”
