Sickness bugs “spread like wildfire” at the Coral Sea Waterworld, Egypt

Sickness outbreaks that have plagued the Coral Sea Waterworld in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt appear to be continuing.

A number of recent visitors to the hotel have reported suffering symptoms including sickness and diarrhoea after witnessing poor food and hygiene standards.

British holidaymakers have commented on the hotel review website TripAdvisor as outbreaks of illness continue to affect the Coral Sea Waterworld.

One hotel guest commented: “Food wasnt great and I suspect that is why we got ill. We lost four days of our holiday with all of us being ill.

“Extra doctors were drafted in and this news made the Daily Mirror.

“The pools should have been shut down longer as people were ill in them, but they only shut them for an hour.”

Others have reported witnessing serious issues in the cleanliness of the Coral Sea Waterworld.

They stated: “The place has a cleanliness problem and the management dont seem to care.

“This problem caused a bug to spread like wildfire a couple of days into our holiday causing lots of people to go down with it, including my step-daughter.

“Cutlery wasnt clean, table clothes were riddled with old food, salt shakers with food still on them from lunch, spills on the floor of the corridors not cleaned for days, old glasses and McDonalds cups left in the corridors for days at a time – the list went on and on.”

Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented on the reports of illness: “We are continuing to receive enquiries from British holidaymakers who have fallen ill on holiday at the Coral Sea Waterworld.

“Despite large numbers of hotel guests suffering sickness bugs and with the hotel attracting a great deal of media attention, it appears that problems regarding food and hygiene standards are unfortunately ongoing.

“It is our hope that the tour operators and hotel management will carry out a full investigation in order to prevent the further spread of illness amongst hotel guests.

“If anyone has returned from the Coral Sea Waterworld having suffered a gastric illness, I would urge them to contact us. We can offer you friendly, expert advice on the merits of making a claim for compensation.”
