Turkey Tummy Bug strikes Birmingham family at the Club Tarhan Hotel

Simpson Millar’s specialist Travel Team has successfully secured over £10,000 compensation for a Birmingham family following their disastrous stay at the Club Tarhan Hotel in Didim, Turkey.

The Bovell family booked a two week all-inclusive package holiday with their Tour Operator Co-operative Travel to stay at the supposedly luxury ‘five star’ rated hotel.

Holiday Hotel Watch

The ‘five’ star all-inclusive hotel which is also advertised by Thomas Cook offers guests a main buffet restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are also a number of swimming pools for holidaymakers to enjoy.

However, these two features of the hotel were the cause of the Bovell’s problems. The family from Birmingham reported to Simpson Millar that the food served was undercooked and that the hotel’s swimming pool water was very dirty and unclean following sightings of faecal accidents in the water that were not cleaned up by hotel staff.

Mid-way through the holiday the family, including their very young daughter, began complaining of tummy bug illness symptoms including severe vomiting and diarrhoea and crippling stomach cramps. Their daughter was so ill that she had to be hospitalised at the nearby clinic. Many other guests at the hotel also fell victim to the Turkish tummy bug.

Simpson Millar successfully acted for several holidaymakers who had stayed at the Club Tarhan in Turkey and who returned home with the tummy bug. Some of the holidaymakers were diagnosed with Cryptosporidium which they had contracted from the contaminated swimming pool water. Simpson Millar won substantial compensation for all their clients who had the misfortune to stay at the Club Tarhan Hotel.
