"Poor Food" and Alleged Health and Safety Issues at Grand Cettia Hotel


A guest at the 4-star Grand Cettia Hotel in Marmaris has allegedly reported hygiene issues at the hotel in a post on Tripadvisor.

The Grand Cettia Hotel received glowing reports from holidaymakers who stay there – and the hotel is popular with families and couples.

However a guest posting on Tripadvisor on 27 June reports cockroaches running across the walls and floors in their bedroom – and a slippery pool area which is actually too hot to stand on comfortably. The same holidaymakers also reported no life guard round the swimming pool at the Grand Cettia Hotel – and an incident in which a child got into difficulties in the pool.

The same guest also criticised the food – and poor food preparation. Poor food standards are the usual source for holiday gastroenteritis. The guest posted "Lunch and Dinner, the food was bland, cold and just pretty much repeated every day, most of the time I just didn't eat it."

Holidaymakers, who book package holidays via a UK tour operator, need to be aware that some hotels may cut costs by reheating and re-serving food on the buffet.

This practice can lead to serious gastric infections like Salmonella or E. Coli developing and spreading throughout a hotel very quickly.

Pool attendants are also crucial to pool health and safety – especially as pool water not properly treated with chlorine and contaminated with human faeces can cause an outbreak of the parasitic gastric infection Cryptosporidium.

A holidaymaker posting on Tripadvisor on 18 June also mentions maintenance and alleged health and safety issues at the Grand Cettia hotel. The holidaymaker had written "The hotel it's self looks good on first glance but on inspecting our room there were several things that were broken and needed updating."

The holidaymaker also stated "The pool side is extremely slippy especially near the kids pool and is very dangerous many children fell over whilst we were there including our own children."

Despite the many favourable reports from holidaymakers staying at the Grand Cettia Hotel in Marmaris, there may be underlying issues which could either lead to a serious holiday accident or outbreak of holiday sickness and diarrhoea.

Any holidaymakers who develop symptoms of holiday food poisoning while on a package holiday at the Grand Cettia Hotel should see their GP for a diagnosis on their return home. Upon diagnosis they should then contact a reputable Travel Lawyer to see if they are able to claim compensation for the illness suffered.
