WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"
Legal 500 (2016)
Isabel Hotel, Tenerife - 2016
We’ve been contacted by a family whose holiday was ruined when a number of them fell ill while staying at the Isabel Hotel in Tenerife in February 2016.
The family reported that those who fell ill suffered with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps.
Though the hotel enjoys some positive reviews online, the family commented that their room was substandard and unclean. They noticed that in the restaurant food was sometimes left uncovered for a period of time, and saw other guests picking up items of food and then replacing it.
On occasion they also saw birds in the restaurant walking over surfaces – and bird droppings were spotted on the floor and on tables.
Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. We have significant experience helping those unlucky enough to contract gastric illness while on holiday. We’re very aware of the complications that can develop because of such illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The effects can sometimes develop into a problem that is long-term, or even permanent.
If you also travelled to the Isabel Hotel and have subsequently been ill, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases like this and can advise you on claiming compensation for your trip.

"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."
