Since the Nineties Morocco has grown in popularity to such an extent that it now attracts over eight million holidaymakers every year. Located on the North-Eastern coast of Africa and providing almost year round sunshine it provides an ideal destination for all-inclusive holidaymakers searching for an exotic but relaxing escape. Unfortunately some dream holidays are spoilt by illnesses that could have been prevented had the resorts taken better health and hygiene precautions.
Sickholiday.com have dealt with cases of holiday illness in Morocco including reports of food poisoning symptoms including diarrhoea and vomiting. Although hygiene standards have improved in many resorts, some visitors have reported low standards ranging from dirty swimming pools to undercooked food.
One of the more common holiday illnesses reported to Sickholiday.com in Morocco is Dysentery, a bacterial infection that can lead to severe diarrhoea, stomach cramps and in rare cases can be life threatening. Suffering from illness on an all-inclusive holiday to Morocco will obviously affect your health but can also leave holidaymakers out of pocket from costly local medical treatment.
Although all holiday makers visiting Morocco are advised to drink only bottled water, poorly maintained swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach illness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
It is your tour operators’ responsibility to make sure you are provided with a safe, clean and hygienic hotel.
