Sickness and diarrhoea reported at Holiday Village Rhodes

Simpson Millar is currently receiving reports of an outbreak of illness at the Holiday Village Rhodes in Greece.

Salmonella Food Poisoning

The Holiday Village Rhodes is based at Kolymbia and a post on TripAdvisor on 8 October also mentions that a family experienced sickness and diarrhoea during their first week at the Holiday Village Rhodes in September.

At other Holiday Village complexes, bacterial infections such as Salmonella and E.coli have been diagnosed as a result of poor hygiene at the hotels, raw chicken and lamb being served in the restaurants – and water containing raw sewage being used to irrigate hotel grounds.

There is no suggestion that the Holiday Village Rhodes has been affected by the same issues – but to date there has been no response from the hotel management or the tour operator First Choice to the recent TripAdvisor alert involving gastric illness at the Holiday Village Rhodes, which affected families with children staying at the complex.

Under the 1992 Package Travel Regulations, holidaymakers who experience illness through no fault of their own while on package holidays have thee years in which to make a claim for holiday illness compensation.

Simpson Millar has handled between 300 and 400 complaints about the Holiday Village Red Sea in the last five years – and in 2011, Simpson Millar’s travel claims lawyers won £17,500 in compensation for a family of three made ill by holiday food poisoning at the Holiday Village Turkey.
