We have just had a great and wonderful weekend of carnival for which a lot of residents have worked very hard, all these negative comments about Los Gigantes and THE BUG are not helpful. This whole subject is so depressing and can anyone tell me why in 10 years of living here, eating out and entertaining I nor any of my friends(residents) have never had this bug. Yes of course occasionally some of us have an upset stomach, this is due to perhaps too much socialising, e.g alcohol, over indulgence of food we wouldnt normally eat etc., why does it seem only tourist/holidaymakers are prone to what you all describe as a terrible bug.
With respect you are totally missing the point.
The majority of the comments here are referring to the extremely damaging entries on Trip advisor and specifically the LG Hotel. It is to Trip Advisor that the majority of potential visitors refer to before booking - not to this board.
Here are some examples
March 17th "........ Then one by one you heard stories of people becoming ill which made one very nervous. Managed to escape until about the 12th day when I felt a bit 'off colour' and nauseous, from then on did not eat particular well, only to return home to find I have come down with the bug"
March 17th " Thomson's continue to send guests to this Norovirus infested hotel?
March 15th "Day 5 we met the couple who we had arrived with who had just come out of there room due to illness!"
March 15th "...dont go to this hotel on arriving there were notices about an illness we both came down with along with many other guests its a 48 hour bug with lasting affects we were told to stay in our rooms another 48 hours after it past "
The above are the most recent comments - worse still there are dozens and dozens more here http://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g1079320-d282376-Reviews-Hotel_Los_Gigantes-Acantilado_de_los_Gigantes_Tenerife_Canary_Islands.html
Something is wrong, and "we" are voicing our views that it would be helpful for those in the "know" to issue some reassurance if appropriate, or to take the initiative and come up with an action plan.
