Sonesta Beach Resort and Casino “was like being in a prison”

Naama Bay in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, has become an increasingly popular holiday destination amongst British holidaymakers.  However, despite many holidaymakers returning to the UK having had an enjoyable, well-earned holiday in the Egyptian sun, many people turn to us for help to claim compensation after having their dream holiday turned into a nightmare.

Our team of holiday illness claim experts has recently heard a number of reports and complaints being raised about the Sonesta Beach Resort and Casino hotel. Some people have reported falling ill, suspected to be a result of poor food and hygiene standards in the hotel. Others have complained about how poorly managed and rude the staff are towards the British.

A lady from Bristol who booked the holiday to spend with her sister described their stay as a “holiday from hell” and said that she felt as though “it was like being in prison with food, disgusting rooms and boredom”

On TripAdvisor the lady also commented: “The room I shared with my sister was disgusting. I found black hairs in my bed and we are both blonde.

“Everything just felt so dirty and vile in there.

“The evenings were boring, there was nowhere nice and relaxing to sit and enjoy a drink.

“I wouldn’t return to this place if it was free!

“The food wasn’t nice and we both stuck to chips because my sister became very ill.

“The staff are terribly rude and the swimming pools are dirty with rubbish floating about at the time, I wanted to leave the whole time!”

Complaining about the ignorance and behaviour of the hotel management staff towards the British, a holidaymaker from Carlisle also warned others “if you like being pushed about by very rude people this is the hotel for you!”

Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday illness claims solicitor at Your Holiday Claims comments: “I am appalled to hear complaints of this nature being raised against this hotel and urge anyone that has been treated in this way to make a formal complaint to the tour operator.

“No one should have a hard earned holiday ruined due to poor standards of food or hygiene nor should they be treated very rudely by members of staff in the hotel. These problems need to be addressed and rectified immediately.

“I hope the tour operators that sell package holidays to the Sonesta Beach Resort and Casino hotel act appropriately and resolve matters as soon as possible to prevent other holidaymakers from becoming ill and having their holidays ruined.

“We help people claim compensation for illnesses suffered in hotels abroad caused as a result of failings on the part of the hotel and I would urge anyone who has been ill during their stay here to contact us for assistance to make a successful claim for compensation.
