Bodrum Holiday Resort And Spa, Turkey, 2016

We’ve been contacted by a couple who became ill while celebrating their anniversary at the Bodrum Resort and Spa in Turkey in June 2015. 

The couple suffered from gastric illness during their trip, which was intended as a celebratory holiday. They suffered diarrhoea, vomiting, excruciating stomach cramps, day and night sweats and a general feeling of tiredness. 

They reported their illness to the Customer Relations Desk at the hotel. Both continued to suffer illness on their return home to the UK.

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 – and 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 Bodrum Resort and Spa 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. 

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact us on our free phone number 0800 056 0066 or complete our online enquiry form and we will call you back.
