Children Struck With Vomiting Bug at Spanish Resort

In May this year, at least thirty children were reportedly hospitalised after falling ill at a hotel in Spain.

Marina Parc Hotel

It was reported that children staying at the Marina Parc hotel in Arenal D’en Castell, Menorca, experienced “severe sickness and diarrhoea” after playing in the hotel pool.

One guest at the hotel, Kevin Kiernan, was enjoying a two week stay with his partner and 10 month old daughter when his child became ill. Mr Kiernan claims the hotel provided the family with a dirty cot, staff failed to keep highchairs in the restaurant clean and that ‘scum’ was visible in the pool.

Projectile Vomiting

Mr Kiernan’s child was so violently sick – he claims at one point she was projectile vomiting – that she had to be taken to a Spanish hospital and was put on a drip.

Mr Kiernan has spoken out about his ordeal:

“One minute [my daughter] was smiling and laughing then she was violently sick it was very scary,

“Then when we cleaned her up but she was sick again. We were really worried.”

His daughter was kept in hospital for four days, but had to return for further tests. Whilst at the hospital, Mr Kiernan claims that he met other parents of sick children who were staying at the same hotel.

The family of three returned home to Wales five days earlier than planned. Once back home, their daughter was taken to Cardiff hospital and received further treatment.

First Choice

First Choice, with whom the holiday was booked, offered the family a travel voucher worth just £50 when he complained, according to Mr Kiernan.

A spokesman for First Choice has said:

“We are sorry to hear of the Kiernan family’s experience. As this is now subject to legal proceedings, it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.

“We closely audit all resorts to which we operate to ensure that health, hygiene and comfort levels are maintained in line with industry standards.”
