Grand Cettia Resort – Cryptosporidium Holiday Illness Compensation Claim
Holiday illness compensation claims specialists Simpson Millar LLP are currently being contacted by ill holiday makers returning from the Club Grand Cettia Resort in Turkey. Holiday makers claim they are suffering from sickness and diarrhoea – violent stomach cramps – fever and lethargy caused by the parasite cryptosporidium!
Initial enquiries suggest that British holiday makers travelling with Thomas Cook – Direct Holidays and Airtours have been subjected to unsanitary hygiene standards from the Club Cettia Hotels swimming pool.
Travellers’ on popular travel forums suggest that many guests have returned with similar infections.
Gary Rawlinson, Simpson Millar’s Holiday Illness Claims Investigator states:
"One family has described how they had spent the majority of their holiday in bed sick before being diagnosed with Cryptosporidiosis."
"Holiday makers travelling with UK tour operators should not be subjected to illness caused by unsanitary hygiene standards at the Club Cettia Resort.
"Reports on TripAdvisor expose the Hotel’s dirty swimming pool water – a possible cause of the holiday illness which is currently being investigated by our legal team."
"Holiday makers staying at the Club Cettia Resort have also observed faecal matter being removed from the swimming pool with fishing nets. We are investigating the accuracy of this claim."
Gary continues to say:
"I would be interested to know why the hotel did not have an appropriate faecal and vomit accident plan!"
"Tour operators are under a duty to exercise reasonable care in the selection of hotel accommodation abroad. I am therefore concerned that the Club Grand Cettia Hotel has not been placed on Stop Sale to give the owners the opportunity to resolve health and safety issues."
The Club Grand Cettia Hotel is a large all-inclusive resort situated near Marmaris, Turkey - it is described as a 4 star hotel with 2 studios, 52 apartments, and 190 hotel rooms. Useful links
