Bahia Principe, Tenerife - 2013

Irwin Mitchell Solicitors are concerned to read reports of a holidaymaker who suffered from severe gastric symptoms and was diagnosed with Campylobacter, following their stay at the Bahia Principe in Tenerife, in June 2013.

Although the origin of the illness is unknown at present, there are concerns that this may be as a result of a breakdown in food hygiene standards at the hotel. Campylobacter is a form of food poisoning, usually contracted through contaminated food or water and/or through eating raw or undercooked meats.

Irwin Mitchell have successfully concluded a claim against a tour operator on behalf of holidaymakers that fell ill whilst staying at the Bahia Principe, Tenerife, Spain, in the summer of 2009.

The case included one holidaymaker who contracted a fungal infection known as Pseudomonas Pyocyaneus. Due to the infection, they suffered from both flaking and cracking feet and hands, which was very painful for them. It appeared that the infection was caused by inadequate chlorination and cleaning of the pool.

If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be entitled to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also, the pain and suffering caused.
