Illness at the Tropitel Na’ama Bay, Sharm el Sheikh

Irwin Mitchell has been approached to act for holidaymakers who travelled to the Tropitel Na’ama Bay, Sharm el Sheikh in Egypt July 2010, some of who fell ill with unpleasant gastric illness with 1 holidaymaker having a confirmed diagnosis of E-Coli.

The holidaymakers have told us that they fell ill with gastric symptoms including vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps.  They were aware of other guests who were staying at the hotel at the same time and who suffered from similar symptoms.  The holidaymakers have described worrying examples of very poor food hygiene standards in the hotel.  Cats, birds and insects were often seen in the eating areas.  Cold foods were not kept chilled, and when food was served, it was left uncovered.  Meat was noted to be undercooked and looked pink and bloody on occasions.

The holidaymakers also describe problems with other aspects of the hotel, such as the swimming pool water being dirty.

Irwin Mitchell was also contacted by a number of clients who suffered gastric illness during their holidays at this hotel in 2008.
