Sold as the ‘Ultimate Family Holiday’ this super-sized complex in Sarigerme, Turkey, has a reputation for illness. We believe earlier outbreaks of illness at the Holiday Village Turkey have been attributed to poor hygiene and contaminated swimming pool water.
Simpson Millar LLP are your first choice personal injury specialists when it comes to claims for food poisoning in Turkey. In the last four years Simpson Millar’s holiday team has handled claims involving the following bacterial and parasitic infections at the Holiday Village Turkey:
Salmonella is one of the most common causes of food poisoning in Britain. Usually, symptoms last 4-7 days and most holidaymakers get better without treatment. However, Salmonella food poisoning can cause more serious illness in older adults, infants, and traveller with chronic diseases. Salmonella amongst holidaymakers at the Holiday Village Turkey is unacceptable because the bug is killed by cooking and pasteurization.

Cryptosporidium is a parasite that infects the intestines and cause 'cryptosporidiosis', a form of gastroenteritis with symptoms of diarrhoea and vomiting. Infection has occurred in travellers to the Holiday Village Turkey and is spread by contact with soil, water, food or surfaces and swimming pool water that have been contaminated by infected faeces (stools) containing the parasite.
Young children are most likely to become infected particularly as they spend a large proportion of their holiday swimming in the pool. Symptoms usually last for up to two weeks, but sometimes they can be severe and last longer particularly for those holidaymakers whose immune system is not working properly.
E. coli is a bacterium that resides in the intestines of both humans and animals and the majority of types of E. coli are harmless. Some types of E Coli has made holidaymakers at the Holiday Village Turkey sick.

Campylobacter is one of the most common causes of food poisoning to UK travellers’ staying in Turkey. The vast majority of travel cases occur as isolated events, and not as part of recognized outbreaks.
The incubation period for the infection is 2 – 5 days with holidaymakers developing diarrhoea (often bloody), stomach cramps, fever, and vomiting.
“All I will say is ignore the bad reviews we've been to holiday village turkey twice now and would go back again tomorrow its excellent!!!!!!!!”
We suspect that many reviews on TripAdvisor are not left by genuine holidaymakers but by those with commercial interests in the hotels themselves. Reviews saying “ignore the bad reviews” with duplicate phrases and common spelling mistakes across several entries identify reviews which should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Simpson Millar’s travel team have noticed that when an outbreak of illness occurs the reviews often stop – our clients have also told us that their reviews are often taken down, particularly if they mention food poisoning.
