Maspalomas is well known for its sand dunes and is an extremely popular winter holiday destination for British holidaymakers. The resort contains a number of hotels that cater for guests on an all-inclusive board basis and whilst this can have its benefits, lapses in hygiene standards at these hotels may lead to serious instances of food poisoning and illness.
The Package Travel Regulations came into force to make it easier for consumers to seek recompense when something goes wrong during a package holiday. This means that if you have become ill during a package holiday and suspect that the hotel was the cause of the illness, you may have an entitlement to claim compensation from your tour operator – not only for the illness itself, but for the loss of holiday and for any other expenses that you have incurred.
If you believe that you have been ill due to poor hotel standards then contact us without delay to see if you can claim.

Poor hygiene practices, an absence of cleanliness, the serving of undercooked or poorly prepared food and the provision of dirty swimming pool facilities can all lead to holiday illness for which you may be able to claim compensation.

Campylobacter Fact: Campylobacter means “twisted bacteria” and can cause symptoms of fever, diarrhoea, and stomach cramps. Campylobacteriosis is the name of a Campylobacter infection.
