"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Iberotel Lamaya Resort, Gorayfat Bay

Despite a number of positive reviews, Irwin Mitchell is concerned after receiving reports of gastric illness amongst holidaymakers staying at the Iberotel Lamaya Resort, Gorayfat Bay, Egypt, during March 2013.
Irwin Mitchell previously raised awareness to this resort after receiving reports of gastric illness in June 2011.

Irwin Mitchell is particularly concerned to receive reports of a holidaymaker falling ill and being diagnosed with shigella flexneri upon her return to the UK. She had serious concerns about the food hygiene at the hotel, noting that “food was reused from one meal to the next”.

Symptoms of gastric illness usually include diarrhoea, vomiting, stomach cramps and lethargy and can often be contracted after consuming food which has become contaminated due to a break down in food hygiene procedures.

If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
