Cryptosporidium - Holiday Illness Bug Hits Club Cettia Resort in Turkey

Holiday illness compensation claims lawyers, Simpson Millar LLP, have been contacted by ill holidaymakers staying at the Club Cettia Resort in Marmaris, Turkey, who have suffered sickness and symptoms including profuse diarrhoea – brutal stomach cramps – nausea and lethargy.

Simon Lomax, Simpson Millar’s Package Holiday Illness Claims Manager states:

"I was shocked to receive recent instructions from a family staying at the Club Cettia Resort in Turkey who described how they had spent a large proportion of the holiday in bed ill. Upon returning to the UK they were diagnosed as suffering from gastroenteritis caused by the waterborne parasite Cryptosporidium.

"British holidaymakers travelling with the tour operators, Thomas Cook –Airtours or Direct Holidays should not be subjected to illness caused by unsanitary swimming pool conditions!"

"Internet reports on popular consumer forums also suggest that a number of other holidaymakers staying at the Club Cettia have also been diagnosed with the illness, Cryptosporidiosis, upon their return home."

Simon continues to say:

"I would be interested to know why the tour operators monthly auditing processes did not reveal such hygiene issues with the swimming pool water at the Club Cettia."

"Tour operators are under a duty to take reasonable and adequate steps to monitor the incidence of sickness among holidaymakers. Surely fishing faecal matter out of swimming pools with small nets it contrary to acceptable practice?"

"I will be seeking to recover substantial compensation for those holidaymakers who have suffered illness at the Club Cettia in Turkey caused by waterborne infections from Cryptosporidium."

Anyone else who had been affected by a debilitating illness whilst travelling with Thomas Cook – Airtours – Sunset or Direct Holidays etc, should get in touch with our holiday illness team on:
