Victoria Playa Hotel

Irwin Mitchell have been approached to act for a family of four, who travelled to the Victoria Playa Hotel in Santo Tomas, Menorca in August 2013. Two of the party fell ill with gastric illness.

The holidaymakers have confirmed that they fell ill with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps.

Despite a number of positive reviews it is alleged that on occasions some food was left uncovered. On one occasion, a holidaymaker found an ant in her food. Cockroaches and insects were sometimes found around the hotel. It is further alleged by the holidaymakers that there were several instances of faeces in the hotel’s swimming pool and that there was on occasion a stench of sewage that filled the poolside.

If you have been affected by gastric illness following a stay at this hotel, you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness.

"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."
