Holiday Village, Algarve

Irwin Mitchell has received reports of illness amongst holidaymakers who have stayed at the Holiday Village Algarve, Balai, Portugal, during May 2014.

We've been contacted by a number of guests, amongst them several children, who experienced symptoms including sickness, diarrhoea and abdominal pain. 

Holidaymakers raised concerns about birds and flies being seen on occasions flying around the food in the restaurant, food sometimes being left uncovered, and food sometimes being served on more than one occasion. 

One tourist also raised concerns about the way the hotel dealt with others’ illness. They say that on one occasion another holidaymaker vomited in the restaurant but the area wasn't cleaned adequately.

Irwin Mitchell specialises in helping victims of illness outbreaks in the UK and abroad to gain justice. The team have successfully represented victims who have fallen ill in such outbreaks and have recovered compensation for tens of thousands of illness victims in the UK and abroad.

If you also travelled to this resort 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.
