What happened at the First Choice Holiday Village Algarve?

Jon Wright and Melissa Cannon looked forward to a family break at the popular Holiday Village resort with their two young children. Yet soon after their arrival, the family were stuck down by a severe sickness bug swarming the resort.

Bedfordshire mum Miss Cannon recalled mould on the placemats and birds flying in and out whilst dining at the all-inclusive buffet and was quick to report the short fallings in hygiene to the resort representative.

We reported on the first day that the resort wasnt what they advertised on the internet but they wanted £100 to move us Miss Cannon told the travel law specialists at Holiday Illness Claims.

Miss Cannon and Mr Wright went on to suffer several days nausea, sickness, diarrhoea and stomach cramps, leaving them struggling to care for their two children, one of which also fell ill.

The suffering family of four are one of several British families to complain of poor hygiene and illness whilst holidaying at the popular Algarve resort.

Dozens of Holiday Village Algarve holidaymakers have instructed the specialist team at Holiday Illness Claims to take action against tour operator First Choice after illness devastated their hard-earned stays.

With the help of Holiday Illness Claims, Mr Wright and Miss Cannon and their family have successfully recovered £8,150 holiday illness compensation.

Mr Wright commented on the matter:

We are so pleased with the service Holiday Illness Claims provided. Thank you Sue and the team for all your help.
