Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps

5 months ago

I stayed here for 2 weeks beginning March 18th, I became ill during my second week with stomach cramps and diarrhoea. Once I got home I was still unwell so my Doctor sent off some stool samples which confirmed I had Salmonella. Environment Health were then in... See More touch with me to track and trace where I had been and they said with absolute certainty given the time I was at the hotel prior to the onset of my symptoms, it was definitely the hotel I caught this at. I could not have caught this on the plane or before I left the UK and I only ate at the resort the entire stay. Lots of people have said lately they got salmonella from this resort and the resort try to deny this and blame the traveller for poor hygiene or try to accuse us of having eaten elsewhere other than the hotel. I even saw them tell someone it might be because they have changed their diet by being on holiday - you don’t get salmonella from simply changing your diet. They will not accept responsibility. When you are at this resort they do not listen or help you there is a massive language barrier so if you need help when ill you won’t get it. It has been almost 3 weeks since I first got sick and I am still not fully recovered. Do not stay here. It is not safe. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Cramps See Less

We were there three weeks ago and extremely sick from day 3 on. Confirmed salmonella. We are still not back to 100%. The resort said it’s because we didn’t wash our hands after going to the washroom!!! Three of us???? This resort food was awful and the buffets were covered in flies. This resort should Be out in alert . They hide every report. Hope u are feeling better?

did you get any kind of refund?
I have stayed in this hotel for almost the same time frame as you (also 2 weeks - just 3 days later). I also had salmonella, confirmed via a stool sample.

As I haven't received any refund yet, I'm considering suing the travel business I booked the trip with. As we have been there at the same time we could support us each other. The fact that you and I traveled there and got sick independently makes it obvious that the origin must be the hotel food. For example, I will be happy to send you a declaration that I experienced the same problems at the same time.

If you are interested in helping each other to get some refund, please send me an email to and we can discuss the details.

I've just got back from here yesterday. How did you get on with your claims?

Absolutely they will take no responsibility. Was told that resort can use the defence that we maybe ate out off the resort, or Toulon the plane going there. This place should be shut down

Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Shortness of Breath

5 months ago

Have been here a week and this is our last day. Started feeling incredibly sick with major stomach pains and nausea today. Breathing isn’t great also. Only eaten at the resort and only at the platinum club restaurants today .. Namely buffet for breakfast and PBG grill... See More for lunch. Have taken some codine for the tummy pain and it’s not helping - it’s that bad! Terrible food. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Stomach Pain, Shortness of Breath See Less

We just got back two weeks ago and ended up with salmonella. The food was the worst! We weren’t platinum, and are mostly at the buffets because the restaurants food was cold and disgusting. The pain and bowel issues have been debilitating! Took daughter to Childrens hospital when we got home. Tests confirmed salmonella. Of course the resort says no way…. But it’s only place we were and all of us were so sick. I’m still not 100%.

Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting

I was there from 2/18 -2/24, on 2/23 I ate a salad from the salad bar at the buffet including cucumbers, lettuce, onions, and ranch dressing. Within 3 hours I was very ill. Vomiting and had extreme diarrhea, both at the same time as some points. It... See More took two days to stop throwing up, 8 days later I still have diarrhea. I was hospitalized on 3/2 for extremely low potassium due to how sick I have been. I was given IV fluids and magnesium to get levels back to normal. Based on my stool sample results I tested positive for Salmonella, this was 8 days later. Don’t eat the salad! | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

We’ve been back two weeks and diagnosed with salmonella. It’s awful the pains and bowel issues. Thing is , we never touched the salads! So we assume it came from food at buffets. This resort food was disgusting
