Simpson Millar helped holidaymakers who stayed at the Rhodes Holiday Village in Kolymbia recover compensation from the UK tour operator, First Choice Holidays, following a mass outbreak of illness at the resort in July 2010.
This was following the Sunday Mirror newspaper headline. "Brits hit by hotel bug." The newspaper went on the say that, at one stage, 12 ambulances were lined up to ferry British holidaymakers to hospital.
On 3rd August 2010, a large outbreak of illness occurred at the Kalithea Horizon Royal Hotel, where a number of guests, including children, reported suffering from the bug, Salmonella.

It is the largest of the Dodecanese islands in terms of both land area and population Rhodes has been sheltered from the effects of development and has certainly avoided becoming a full blown urbanized and tourist stricken holiday destination.
