[ezcol_1third]island-garden-resort[/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third]Mr Whittle and 6 of his family members travelled to the Island Garden Resort in Sharm El Sheikh for their annual summer holiday. Unfortunately just 4 days into their 2 week holiday all 7 family members fell ill with stomach cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting. The food was of such a poor standard in the main restaurant that the family mainly lived off the snack food (burgers/chips) from around the pool. However during the holiday the children told the client that the server at the snack bar had dropped their food on the floor, picked it back up and told them to take it. They didn’t want to but were told they couldn’t have a fresh one so they didn’t eat. [/ezcol_1third] [ezcol_1third_end]By the end of the holiday the family had no choice but to eat in the local MacDonalds, they couldn’t go for out for a nice dinner every night as it was just not in their budget. Some of the family members couldn’t enter their rooms through the front door as they were situated right next to some sort of sewage storage place. The smell was so strong they physically couldn’t face walking past it. For the whole holiday they had to use the patio doors that lead out to the rear. Overall the holiday was completely ruined by illness and they will not be returning.[/ezcol_1third_end]
