Nearly 4 million tourists visit Benidorm each year for its mixture of easy going beach life and wild party atmosphere. Offering a huge variety of activities across hundreds of hotels, Benidorm caters to everyone from families to young couples to large groups looking for a party. Unfortunately, many of the holiday makers arriving in Benidorm also find unacceptable and avoidable holiday illness.
Poor hygiene standards in many hotels have unfortunately led to reports of avoidable holiday illness such as food poisoning. Poorly maintained hotel swimming pools can also lead to serious stomach illness such as Gastroenteritis as a result of contracting Cryptosporidium.
Although illness often occurs through no fault of your own, whilst staying in Benidorm it is important to follow these guidelines to reduce the risk of food poisoning and other holiday illnesses:
- Avoid foods not prepared hygienically.
- Only drink bottled water.
- Avoid food not stored at the correct temperature.
- Frequently use an alcohol-based hand gel.
- Avoid salads and any uncooked fruits and vegetables (these may have been handled unhygienically)
Suffering from illness on an all-inclusive holiday to Benidorm will obviously affect your health but can also leave holidaymakers out of pocket from costly local medical treatment.
