More than 30 British tourists are considering legal action after claiming they caught stomach infections at a Turkish resort where ‘feces floated in the pool’. The victims rested at the Mukarnas Resort and Spa in Antalya, Turkey from July 9 to 27 after booking through the tour operator Jet2 Holidays, reports today, August 11, the British Daily Mail.
Some of the victims complain that they still suffer from diarrhea, vomiting, dizziness and chills, and that the conditions at the “five-star” resort were terrible. They have now commissioned Irwin Mitchell lawyers to investigate and defend their interests in court.
27 year old Lauren Scott and her 42-year-old husband James Beard suffered from a stomach ailment. A couple from Wigan, Greater Manchester arrived at the said resort with their daughters Maddison10 years, Georgia8 years old, and six-year-old Olivia July 9th After ten days of fun in the sun, the whole family was stricken with illness.
The family returned home to the UK on 24 July. Lauren and James continue to suffer from stomach problems after returning.
“We were all very excited about our trip to Turkey. It was our first family vacation and we were counting the days. Unfortunately, the resort was very disappointing. We were shocked by the standards and the number of sick vacationers. The food served was never hot and served slightly warmed up. The pool was also dirty and we didn’t see it being cleaned during our stay. Once there was feces in the hotel pool, and I was shocked when the local staff tried to remove it with their hands, but did not close the pool for sanitary cleaning, ” — complained the head of the British family in an interview with the London edition.
Another victim of unsanitary conditions in a Turkish resort was a 38-year-old Mark Clifton, an electrician from Yeovil, England. He and his wife visited the same resort from July 15th to 25th with their two children. Just three days after moving in, Mark couldn’t get out of bed in his hotel room.
“All I need now is an answer to the question of why this happened. It’s the least we deserve after what we’ve been through.” he complained.
Faced with stomach cramps, diarrhea, excessive sweating and fever, he went to the hotel’s doctor, who was unavailable.
Even now, having returned to his homeland, he still suffers from stomach cramps.
