Holiday Illness at the Kalithea Horizon Royal Hotel – Salmonella Reported

Simpson Millar Solicitors are investigating reports by holidaymakers returning from the Kalithea Horizon Royal Hotel who are incensed at having been ill at this 4 star all-inclusive hotel on the island of Rhodes, Greece.

Reports on popular consumer forums claim that over 420 holidaymakers have been the victims of a terrible illness bug – further information will be released once the results of stool samples are known.

The illness symptoms experienced by holidaymakers at the Kalithea Horizon Royal Hotel include violent and uncontrollable diarrhoea – debilitating stomach cramps – nausea and fever.

Gary Rawlinson, Simpson Millar’s Hotel Accident and Illness Investigator said:

"Holidaymakers are stating that guests are being taken to hospital in taxis and that medication is being made freely available in the reception so that hotel guests can self treat!"

"It appears that food hygiene standards have been permitted to lapse at the Hotel Kalithea Horizon Royal causing an outbreak of holiday illness. Early reports suggest that flies have been a serious problem in the restaurants, rats have been seen in the bar areas, and the hotel grounds smelt of sewage."

Gary continues to say:

"Holidaymakers are writing reports on consumer forums such as Trip Advisor stating that pest control vans have been seen in the grounds of the Hotel Kalithea Horizion Royal. Holiday-makers should be aware that bacteria is often transmitted to food by flies which inevitably will have previously laid eggs and fed in animal faeces."

"Holiday representatives should be advising sick hotel guests to obtain advice from qualified and independent doctors. Infective gastroenteritis is not caused by over indulgence – change in temperature or climate – sunstroke etc, and any advice given to the contrary would be extremely naive."

"We intend to make substantial compensation claims for those holiday-makers who suffer illness because of poor health and safety standards or food poisoning at the Kalithea Horizon Royal in Rhodes, Greece. It is deplorable that British holidaymakers should be subjected to unsanitary hygiene whilst on a package holiday in an EU member state."
