The Mediterranean hotel is an all-inclusive resort with 13 restaurants, including a 'world food' buffet and sushi diner.

The trip has set families back up to £4,000, with more and more patrons being struck down with illness each day, reports the Mirror.

Reports say there are “more than 10 families suffering” with “numbers… growing by the day”.

One holidaymaker Kate Dowling took to Twitter to share her story: “My family are in Rixos Sungate – three out of five have food poisoning with one hospitalised.

"Staff are not doing anything to help, denying all knowledge even though other guests have complained.”

The resort in Kemer, Turkey, has a high-ranking 4.5/5 star score on review site Tripadvisor.

TUI commented on the outbreak yesterday: “We are concerned to hear of a small number of cases at Rixos Sungate. Our team at the resort are offering support where necessary.”
