Hotel Best Benalmadena far from the best according to holidaymakers

  • Numerous British holidaymakers forced to endure symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting
  • One guest claims to have contracted E.coli during their stay
  • Hotel staff reportedly deny any illness claims

The experts at HolidayIllnessClaims are aware of recent illness issues at the Hotel Best Benalmadena, following the discovery of several reviews which have been left by recent visitors of the Spanish resort.

In one of these reviews, a British holidaymaker reveals that she was disappointed with her stay at the Hotel best Benalmadena, before adding:

Two days into [our] holiday 3 of our party went down with sickness and diarrhoea [and the] next day another member had same with severe stomach cramps.

[The] day after that another was really ill [and] 1 day after returning home 2 others were ill, we were a party of 9.

Reception staff were informed but denied anything wrong so we put it down to a bug this has put us off returning.

In addition to this, unfortunately it appears that further British holidaymakers have also been affected by the apparent outbreak.

Another recent guest of the resort, who visited with their family in June 2017 disclosed:

I got a tummy bug which started the day before I left with just a headache but on arriving home I have spent 3 days running to the toilet. I never ate outside the hotel as was all inclusive.

The hotel definitely has a problem and they know but are trying to hide it. Other guests have reported the same and it is a shame.
