Veril Playa Hotel, Gran Canaria

Irwin Mitchell is concerned to read reports that a number of holidaymakers staying at the Veril Playa Hotel, Gran Canaria in Spain are returning from their holidays complaining of severe gastric illness.

Reports suggest that guests have been suffering with diarrhoea, abdominal pain and vomiting. We are looking into the possibility whether the illness suffered by guests is a result of the poor standards of food hygiene at the hotel.

It is alarming to learn that such problems exist at the hotel, with recent reports suggesting that holidaymakers have contracted serious bacterial infections. Such infections can leave permanent symptoms including an alteration of bowel habit, stomach pains and irritable bowel syndrome.

Reports indicate that the cause of the gastric illnesses may have been due to the poor quality of food or lack of hygiene standards practised at the hotel with reports of insects around food serving stations. In particular, the holidaymakers have reported that food was served undercooked and recycled food was displayed uncovered for long periods of time. It is reported that guests suffered from symptoms including violent diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps and were confined to their hotel rooms.

If you have also travelled to this hotel and subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.

"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."
