Illness at the Baobab Beach Resort, Kenya

Irwin Mitchell has been approached to act for holidaymakers who travelled to the Baobab Beach Resort in Kenya between June and July 2010, some of who fell ill with unpleasant gastric illness.

The holidaymakers have told us that they fell ill with gastric symptoms including vomiting, diarrhoea and stomach cramps. They were aware of other guests who were staying at the hotel at the same time and who suffered from similar symptoms. The holidaymakers have described worrying examples of very poor food hygiene standards in the hotel. On several occasions, holidaymakers witnessed the chef drag raw steak over cooked steak, and they also noticed food such as fish, chicken and beef was often undercooked and pink in the middle. Birds and insects were often seen in the eating areas as well.

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