Outbreaks of illness ruin First Choice holidays

We are reading reports of severe gastric illness among holidaymakers returning from the First Choice Holiday Village Majorca in August, 2013.

Guests have reported on travel review site, TripAdvisor that many people have been struck down with ear infections and symptoms of severe diarrhoea, sickness and stomach cramps.

The Holiday Village Majorca is particularly popular with UK holidaymakers and has a 4-star rating.

One holidaymaker complained: “The food was disgusting and wouldn´t feed it to my dog…my son ate completely raw chicken and had to see the doctor twice for medication.”

Another holidaymaker who stayed at the hotel in July said: “The food was rubbish and we ate out 7 nights out of 14. Two of the pools were closed after children were using them as a toilet.”

Comments from one of our holiday illness experts

“Cryptosporidium infection can easily occur where human faeces are found in swimming pool water. Holidaymakers can easily contract the  infection when they swallow contaminated water, which causes symptoms of sickness, diarrhoea and severe stomach cramps.

“Tour operators have a legal duty to ensure safety and hygiene standards at hotels they promote and sell are up to standard. Anyone who has been ill at this resort should contact us as soon as possible.”
