Portugal is one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe and it’s not difficult to see why with its almost year-long sunshine and close proximity to the UK. Portugal has got something for everyone; from busy, cosmopolitan resorts where you can visit up-market restaurants and taste countless cocktails to golf resorts that are committed to providing the most beautiful courses for you to play on in Europe. At the centre of most experiences are the beautiful beaches and it won’t take you long to find the perfect one suited to you.

There are a wide range of all-inclusive resorts in Portugal and this means that there are many examples of hotels that don’t keep to adequate standards of hygiene. Catering for large amounts of people is usually done by offering a buffet-style restaurant in a hotel, but this can lead to illness. Bacterial infections such as E.coli, Salmonella and Campylobacter can all be caught from uncooked food, food not prepared in sanitary conditions and food stored at an incorrect temperature.
