5-year-old hospitalised following illness outbreak at the Sandy Beach Resort

  • “A lot” of guests are reported to have fallen victim to the outbreak
  • Those affected endure distressing symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea
  • Multiple concerns raised by guests over the food and room hygiene

The legal experts here at YourHolidayClaims are aware of an outbreak of illness at the Sandy Beach Resort, which is apparently plaguing a number of visits to the hotel.

Multiple former guests of the three star resort have recently taken to TripAdvisor, to reveal how their holiday had been marred by both illness and poor hygienic standards.

One of these distressed holidaymakers who labelled the Sandy Beach Resort “2 star at best”, commented:

“Spent ten days here from the 21st August to 31st August. Family of four.

“My wife and I fell ill on the fourth day with sickness and diarrhoea, my five year old daughter then fell ill and spent the night in hospital two days later.

“We travelled to the hospital in an ambulance with a mother and her two young boys, it appears that a lot of guests were falling ill.

“The food although plentiful was rather bland with the cooked dishes only warm”.

In addition to this, the hygiene standards at the Sandy Beach Resort have also been criticised by another former guest of the Thomas Cook promoted hotel, who claimed:

“This place may have once been great. Maybe. Sadly though, it isn’t now very good.

“Once a 4 star resort, it’s officially 3 now, but I’d suggest 2/3…Health and safety and maintenance aren’t taken very seriously here.

“Some of the issues we encountered here included; faulty air conditioning, dirty and dangerous old ‘luxury’ showers (see photo) Legionella anyone? Mouldy mattresses and walls.
“Wasps, flies and ants are also a significant issue here. Wasps are an Island wide problem in September as the fruit ripens but are unpleasant when you would prefer to eat outside.

“Whilst I’m not averted too nature, I don’t want flies crawling over the food in the buffet”.

Our experienced solicitors take

“It is really unnerving to learn that children are being forced to stay in hospital as a result of falling ill at this hotel.

“If the reports which I have seen are true, then the hygiene standards at the Sandy Beach Resort are totally unacceptable. Investigations now need to be carried out to get to the bottom of these awful outbreaks.

“If you have fallen ill for at least seven days on your package holiday, then you do not have to suffer in silence. Contact the YourHolidayClaims team today to see if you can secure justice via a successful no win no fee holiday illness claim”.
