At Your Holiday Claims we recently received an enquiry from a British holidaymaker who fell ill during their honeymoon at the Siva Sharm Resort & Spa in Egypt.
Many holidays have been ruined due to outbreaks of sickness and diarrhoea at the Siva Sharm Resort & Spa (formerly the Savita Resort).
British holidaymakers have commented on TripAdvisor, complaining of poor standards of cleanliness and hygiene throughout the hotel.
One hotel guest described the food served as “disgusting” and “barely warm”. They warned others to “take sickness and diarrhoea tablets if you are unlucky enough to have booked here”.
One visitor stated: “The hotel has a clinic and it is well used with many guests suffering from sickness.
“I believe this is in part due to hygiene issues witnessed.”
Others have reported spending “10 of the 14 days ill with stomach cramps and diarrhoea”.
Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “It is worrying to read of so many holidaymakers being affected by illness at the Siva Sharm Resort & Spa.
“When food is undercooked or served lukewarm, hotel guests are placed at risk of contracting food poisoning. This can lead to experiencing symptoms of sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps.
“I trust that the tour operators and hotel management will investigate the current reports of illness in order to prevent the further spread of infections.
“I would encourage anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Siva Sharm Resort & Spa to contact myself or a member of our holiday claims team for expert advice on all aspects of the claims process.”
