Mr and Mrs Shord hoped that their sunshine getaway to the Holiday Village Algarve would provide them with some much needed sun and relaxation following a very stressful year.

Unfortunately, just days into their Portuguese retreat, the couple fell ill with gastric illness and were confined to their hotel room.

Many of their fellow hotel guests also reported falling ill and the Shords decided to raise the alarm with the First Choice holiday representative at the hotel.

Despite their complaints, very little action was taken to address the illness outbreak and problems persisted at the four-star resort.

Hotel guests were served undercooked, reheated and uncovered food, causing misery for many.

Once back in the UK, Mr and Mrs Shord decided to take legal action against their tour operator for the appalling hygiene breaches they experienced.

Compensation secured

Industry leaders Holiday Illness Claims represented the Shords case on a no win, no fee basis. Expert solicitor Sue Robinson successfully secured nearly £4,000 in compensation for the illness stricken Holiday Village guests.

Mrs Shord commented: Michael and I could not wait to get away and spend some quality time together.

For the amount of money that we paid, we were extremely disappointed with the standards within the hotel and the food we were served.

Despite both of us having raised our concerns to the holiday rep and tour operator, very little action was taken and very little compassion towards us falling ill was given to either of us, so we turned to Holiday Illness Claims for help to see if we could be compensated for our awful experience.

I would highly recommend Holiday Illness Claims to anyone who has suffered from illness at the Holiday Village Algarve.
