Food Poisoning Outbreak at the Club Hotel Pineta in Turkey

An outbreak of e.coli and salmonella poisoning has been reported at the Club Hotel Pineta in Marmaris, Turkey, with several holidaymakers falling ill.

Hotel Resort

Slater and Gordon Travel Litigation Solicitors have received several enquiries from travellers and holidaymakers that have fallen ill as a result of substandard hygiene conditions at Club Hotel Pineta in Marmaris, Turkey.

Many people have taken to TripAdvisor to share their reviews of the poor standards of cleanliness at the Turkey resort.

"When you have paid £2,000 for a week’s holiday you would expect it to be clean,” reads one review. Other reviews describe unacceptable conditions that would very likely contribute to the cause of food poisoning and spread of infection, including:

• gross negligence of maintaining the swimming pool, with reports of floating cigarette butts and faeces in the water;

• unsanitary accommodation with broken toilets, dust, blood on the bathroom floor and used condoms under the bed;

• unhygienic food and dining area, with flies on breakfast food that had been left out, food recycled from one dining area to another, rotten food and feral cats roaming the areas where food is served.

Whereas it would be very disappointing to anyone with great expectations of their holiday abroad to instead find they have spent their annual leave and money on accommodation that does not meet those expectations, when it is a matter of poor hygiene that leads to illness and food poisoning, specialist Travel Litigation Solicitors can help you to pursue a holiday food poisoning compensation claim.

Group holiday food poisoning compensation claims are common as often the bacteria are easily transported from one person to another in close proximities. For more information on this see our previous blog, here.
