There have been reports in Altinkum of swimming pools with unsafe levels of hygiene. Hotels have a duty of care to their guests and should be doing all they can to keep their pools sanitary. If faecal matter from animals, insects or people spreads around a pool then bacterial infections occur and can lead to serious illness. If other holiday-makers ingest water carrying infection then they can suffer from diarrhoea, fever, vomiting and cramp.
