Sea Gardens Resort

Irwin Mitchell’s international personal injury specialists have been contacted by holidaymakers after they contracted gastric illness and E. coli whilst staying at the Sea Gardens Resort, in Egypt, during September and October 2015.

The guests’ symptoms included abdominal pain, diarrhoea, fever and weight loss, which required hospitalisation.

The visitors noticed that a lot of the food served at the resort’s restaurant appeared to be lukewarm, uncovered and left out for long periods of time. The holidaymakers reported that on occasions the chicken was undercooked and served pink in the middle. They also expressed that flies were often seen on and around the food in the restaurants.

Jennifer Mullins, a specialist international personal injury lawyer at Irwin Mitchell, said: “It is very disturbing to hear a first-hand account of standards experienced by guests at the Sea Gardens Resort in Egypt.

“It is clear that lessons need to be learned and a thorough investigation carried out so that holidaymakers can receive the answers they deserve regarding how they became ill.”

If you have travelled to the Sea Gardens Resort in Egypt and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.
