HolidayTravelWatch asks; Is the resort of Los Gigantes free of Norovirus?

For a number of years, HolidayTravelWatch has dealt with many holidaymakers affected by illness, from the resort of Los Gigantes in Tenerife.

How should Consumers be treated, particularly those going to Los Gigantes in Tenerife?

This past 2 weeks we have received call after call from holidaymakers who are either intending to go or who are already in the resort of Los Gigantes in Tenerife.  What you may ask is causing feathers to ruffle on this Canary Island? One word - 'Norovirus'!  When I say 'norovirus' what I mean to say is so-called 'norovirus'.  At the risk of repeating myself, I attach the 'so-called' label to no... 27 March 2013
