Sickness saga continues at the Holiday Village Benalmadena

Our holiday illness claims team are reading further reports of illness at the Holiday Village Benalmadena, Spain.

The Holiday Village Benalmadena is part of the First Choice range of Holiday Villages. We have previously received enquiries from holidaymakers who have fallen ill suffering sickness, stomach cramps and diarrhoea at First Choice locations including the Holiday Village Rhodes and the Holiday Village Algarve.

Visitors to the Holiday Village Benalmadena have taken to the review website TripAdvisor, describing hygiene standards as catastrophic.

One hotel guest commented: The food at the buffet restaurant was awful. Whilst there was a wide variety it was often stale, poorly cooked, and barely edible.

We have stayed in many all-inclusive hotels before and never had food this bad. Often we would have to resort to buying food from the hotel shop as we were still hungry after meals due to there being nothing we wanted to eat.

My daughter had an upset stomach for much of the trip and I believe this was due to the poor food.

Others have suffered from sickness at the hotel after they were served which was barely warm.

Tracy Stansfield, an experienced holiday claims solicitor, said of the reports: We are concerned to read reports of holiday illness at the Holiday Village Benalmadena.

There is a serious risk of holidaymakers suffering food poisoning when food is served undercooked or lukewarm. Often this will lead to gastroenteritis causing symptoms such as sickness, stomach cramps, diarrhoea and, in severe cases, dehydration.

I would urge anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Holiday Village Benalmadena, to contact myself or member of our holiday illness claims team. We can answer any questions you may have on the claims process and advise you on the merits of making a claim for compensation.

Our holiday illness claims department has over 50 years combined experience handling holiday illness claims. They have the background knowledge and expertise to help you make a successful claim for compensation.

Your tour operator may simply offer you a voucher towards another holiday with them or a small amount of compensation as settlement. However, this may seriously undercompensate you.  We will deal directly with your tour operator and obtain the best possible outcome for your claim.
