Here at Your Holiday Claims we are reading reports on review site TripAdvisor of gastric illness at the MedPlaya Hotel Riviera in Benalmadena, Spain.
British holidaymakers have been affected by outbreaks of illness at the hotel thought to be caused by poor food hygiene standards.
One return visitor described their stay as the “holiday from hell” after falling ill during their stay.
The holidaymaker reported that their winter getaway was ruined as they began to experience symptoms including “bad stomach pains and diarrhoea”.
They added that, for six days, they were unable to “eat more than a piece of bread” at the all-inclusive hotel. As they returned home, they continued to be affected by a “gastric” illness.
Others have described the food served at the MedPlaya Hotel Riviera as “desperately basic”.
Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, said of the reports: “Not only can contracting a gastric illness abroad ruin a holiday, but it can also be an incredibly distressing experience for holidaymakers.
“It is vital that high standards of food preparation and hygiene are maintained within all holiday hotels in order to prevent such outbreaks of illness from occurring.
“If an illness was caused as result of fault on the part of a holiday hotel, the tour operator may be liable. At Your Holiday Claims we can help you obtain compensation for the illness you have suffered, the loss of enjoyment of your holiday and any out of pocket expenses incurred as a result of the illness.”
