Dirty and grimy looking swimming pools have also been reported, perfect environments for bacteria such as Campylobacter and Cryptosporidium to spread.

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEWS
Concorde El Salam Hotel
Reviewed 26 August 2014
“The poorest hotel ever! Staff at the restaurant were rude with aggressive attitudes. The food is tasteless and cold and made two members of my family ill. We all suffered from stomach ache, and found cockroaches running around and hair in our food. Everything was bad!”

“Nice hotel shame about food poisoning”
Concorde El Salam Hotel
“There is a big problem with food poisoning at this hotel. Everyone we spoke to was on medication from the local chemist, and seeing how they serve food it is easy to see why people were so ill. Although we paid for all inclusive we ended up forced into buying meals out”
