British holidaymakers are once again reporting suffering symptoms of holiday illness at the Holiday Village Benalmadena, Spain.
Visitors have commented on the review website TripAdvisor after witnessing poor standards of hygiene and undercooked food at the hotel. Others have suffered sickness and stomach bugs during their stay.
One hotel guest commented: “My problem was that the room wasn’t cleaned, you could feel dirt under your feet when bare footed and worst of all the bathroom stunk.
“I used to dread going for meals. I mainly lived on salad and chips or soup. Here, you will never eat a hot meal. All of the food is barely warm.
“My husband suffered a few days of sickness, I believe this was due to the food just being warm.”
The Holiday Village Benalmadena is promoted by UK tour operator First Choice. Recently, we have reported on numerous outbreaks of illness at First Choice Holiday Villages including the Holiday Village Algarve, Holiday Village Sarigerme in Turkey and the Coral Sea Holiday Village.
Our expert holiday claims team has also received enquiries from holidaymakers who suffered symptoms of severe stomach cramps and diarrhoea during their stay at the Holiday Village Rhodes.
Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “We are concerned to read further reports of holiday illness at the Holiday Village Benalmadena.
“There is a serious risk of holidaymakers suffering food poisoning when food is served undercooked or lukewarm. Often, this will lead to gastroenteritis causing symptoms such as sickness, stomach cramps, diarrhoea, and, in severe cases, dehydration.
