We have been asked to represent a family who suffered severe gastric illness at Cyprotel, Faliraki, Rhodes after faeces were found in the pool.
The family stayed at the hotel in August, 2013 and all suffered with symptoms of severe stomach cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea.
Thomas Cook, amongst others, promote the Cyprotel Faliraki.
Our client told us: âThere were flies on the food and the serving spoons and the food was left out in the sun. There were many faecal accidents in the childrenÂ´s swimming pools. The pools were not closed and the faeces were just scraped down drainage channels or put in the bin by the drinks machine by the lifeguards.â
She went on to say: âThere were rats in the childrenÂ´s play area and in the entertainment area and the staff went on strike for 2 days as they hadÂ not been paid for 3 months.â
Anne Thomson, Head of the Holiday Illness Claims Department at Farnworth Rose said: âTo hear of rats running around the childrenÂ´s play areas and pools not being closed after faecal accidents is horrendous.Â Thomas Cook should investigate the source of illness at the Cyprotel Faliraki to ensure nobody else falls ill.â
