HOLIDAYMAKER SUFFERS 2 MONTH

GASTRIC ILLNESS FROM

IBEROTEL IL MERCATO HOTEL

 

“HER GP SUSPECTED SHE WAS INFESTED WITH A PARASITE…”

[ezcol_1third]iberotel-il-mercato[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Miss A went away on what she thought would be both a fun-filled and relaxing holiday. Unfortunately she only got to enjoy 7 days of her 2 week holiday. On week 2 Miss A suffered the effects of spending a week eating under-cooked, luke warm, un-covered food. She said there was a good selection of food but the quality of it was very poor. Miss A booked to go camel riding and stargazing, unfortunately both of these excursions were ruined by her illness.[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Upon her return to the UK Miss A consulted her doctor who reportedly diagnosed her with a Gastric illness. The GP suspected that she was infected with a parasite so could not prescribe antibiotics as these would exacerbate her symptoms. Overall Miss A suffered with the effects of food poisoning for almost 2 months.

GUEST RUSHED TO HOSPITAL

AFTER STAYING AT THE

IBEROTEL IL MERCATO HOTEL

 

“HE SPENT MOST OF THE HOLIDAY ON A DRIP…”

[ezcol_1third]nVJHpW4[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Mr A travelled to the Iberotel Il Mercato in June last year with high expectations. On many websites it’s described as a 5 star luxury hotel and when travelling to a hotel of such a high standard food poisoning should be the last thing on your mind. Mr A admittedly pointed out that generally the food appeared to be of a good standard. After 3 days of breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel Mr A unfortunately began to show the first signs of food poisoning. [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]Minor stomach cramps soon progressed into severe diarrhoea and at this stage Mr A consulted the hotel doctor who reportedly diagnosed him with acute Gastro-enteritis. Mr A’s diarrhoea became so bad he was rushed into hospital with severe de-hydration and put on a drip. The illness remained for the rest of his holiday and for a short while after he returned home completely ruining the whole experience of going to Egypt.

TRIP ADVISOR REVIEWS

“Poor customer service and the food made us sick”

Review of the Iberotel Il Mercato Hotel

“After the third day both my friend and i suffered with eating something that didn’t agree with us. Not to be too graphic but we were ill for the rest of the trip. We ended up avoiding the hotel buffet altogether – making the all inclusive deal pointless.”

 

“Not 5 Star, plagued with stomach cramps!”

Review of the Iberotel Il Mercato Hotel

“The room was not of five star quality. The bath was quite stained and the tiling on the floor was cracked. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone and I certainly would not return! ”
