Holiday Illness - Jaz Mirabel Beach/Park Complex, Egypt - Claim Compensation

Were you sick whilst staying at the Jaz Mirabel Complex?

Our Specialist Holiday Illness Claims team have noticed reports on popular holiday consumer forums of travellers’ returning from the Jaz Mirabel Resort Complex in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, who are complaining about the choice and quality of the food served at the Hotel. Typical complaints concern poor hygiene practices which include: serving hot food at tepid temperatures; cheese being uncovered and exposed to the heat; and serving utensils with congealed food left on dirty plates for guests to use.

One report suggests British travellers were asked to provide stool samples with many other guests saying they fell ill with debilitating holiday sickness bugs between April and June this year at this Jaz Mirabel in Sharm.

The illness symptoms suffered by guests staying on the complex are said to include severe and persistent diarrhoea – excruciating stomach cramps – and fever. Holidaymakers have also reported taking antibiotics from local pharmacists to combat their symptoms

Simon Lomax, Simpson Millar’s Holiday Illness and Compensation Claims Manager says:

"I can confirm that we have been contacted by holidaymakers whose holidays at the Jaz Mirabel Complex were marred by illness including one client who has been confirmed as suffering from BACTERIAL DYSENTERY, namely SHIGELLA, in May 2010."

"Holidaymakers who return home ill from the Jaz Mirabel should not return to work immediately but should speak with their GP, if only to eliminate the possibility that they are suffering from bacterial dysentery. This action is particularly important for those who handle food or work with children or the elderly and anyone with a suppressed immune system."

"Holidaymakers who are still abroad are advised to seek immediate attention from a doctor, if only to prevent the symptoms of diarrhoea from escalating."

"I intend to claim substantial compensation for those clients who suffer shigella infection or any other gastric illness caused by contaminated food or poor standards of hygiene at the Jaz Mirabel Complex. Holidaymakers travelling with responsible tour operators including First Choice and Thomson Holidays etc should not be subjected to infectious gastroenteritis whilst on holiday."

The Jaz Mirabel Resort is part of a chain of hotels operating in Egypt which are exclusive to the Thomson/First Choice Group in the UK. The Jaz Mirabel Resort Complex consists of the Jaz Mirabel Beach and the Jaz Mirabel Park, although many of their facilities are shared.

If you suffer food poisoning on holiday at a Jaz Hotel, which also include the Jaz Almaza Beach Resort, Jaz Crystal Resort, and Jaz Oriental Resort, we can help you claim the compensation you genuinely deserve.

Anyone who has been affected by food poisoning or any debilitating sickness caused by salmonella – shigella – campylobacter – or cryptosporidium etc, whilst on holiday can speak to our Holiday Illness Claims team on:
