UK Traveller’s Stay at Lindos Princess Beach Ruined By Stomach Bug

Holidays Curtailed Claim British Families

We are concerned to read of reports on TripAdvisor stating that British holidaymakers staying at the Lindos Princess Beach in Rhodes have been struck down with gastroenteritis.

According to reports, a mysterious bug which is said to be circulating the all-inclusive hotel could have been caused by poor hygiene practices and standards.

Simon Lomax, the firm’s Holiday Illness manager says:

"Diarrhoea is usually contracted by the ingestion of contaminated food or water. Contrary to common belief, contaminated food and not a virus is primarily the cause of gastric illness. Most cases of infective diarrhoea are caused by bacteria."

"Levels of hygiene are extremely important in the prevention of food-borne infection and its subsequent spread."

"If you are ill whilst staying at the Hotel you can expect to suffer diarrhoea and the possibility of abdominal cramps or a fever. The symptoms are usually mild, self-limiting and resolve spontaneously. Antibiotics are generally recommended if the symptoms are severe or complicated but only if the exact organism has been identified."

Holidaymakers staying at the Hotel in Pefkos suggest guests have been "really poorly". A lady from London claims that she discovered that "restaurants were half empty due to the spread of the bug". Many other guests describe how a "food poisoning stomach bug" ruined their trip to Greece.

The Lindos Princess Beach is sold as a package holiday by the tour operator Thomas Cook. Holidaymakers travelling with a tour operator are protected by powerful consumer regulations in the form of the 1992 Package Travel Regulations.

If you were sold a package holiday then your flights, accommodation and resort transfers would have been purchased at one inclusive price in the UK.

If poor hygiene practices within the hotel were responsible for the spread of infection you can claim compensation in the UK for personal injury.
