Mystery “bug” ruins holidays for Brits during stay at Hilton Sharks Bay, Egypt

sick sid

Your Holiday Claims are concerned to still be reading reports on TripAdvisor of illness at the Hilton Sharks Bay. It was only in July that we previously reported that holiday makers were becoming ill at this resort.

Holidaymakers have complained about the standard of food at the resort saying “it was appalling” and was “lukewarm.”

Others have described their holiday as a “massive disappointment” as they were unable to “eat, drink or leave the room” after falling ill.

Guests have said that they are not wholly sure what could have caused their “poorly tummies” as there “were so many possibilities.”

The restaurant was said to be “very dirty and the tables were sticky and not cleaned correctly.”

The splash bar, was described as “absolutely filthy” and the bottled water at the pool bar was “always warm,” visitors have also noted that the plastic ice box was also “absolutely filthy.”

Numerous guests witnessed children being allowed in the pool without nappies, resulting in faeces in the swimming pools, which were closed on “many, many occasions.”

Tracy Stansfield, an experienced solicitor at Your Holiday Claims said: “It is deeply concerning to read of more reports of illness at this hotel.”

“It would appear from the reports that there are still problems at this property and I hope that the issues are being addressed urgently by the hotel management. “

“Contaminated swimming pool water can result in many infections, including Shigella, Cryptosporidium, Giardia and E. coli and they all have very unpleasant symptoms.

“I would urge anyone who has been fallen ill during their stay here to file a formal complaint and to get in touch with us to receive professional legal advice and guidance about how to make a claim for compensation”
