Unfortunately myself and my fiance stayed in Bird Island - a hot tub room - and caught folliculitis from the hot tub. This is a skin infection caused by poorly maintained swimming pools and hot tubs. We saw a doctor as our skin got increasingly rashy / itchy / sore and as we never go swimming, the only option was the hot tub. It also developed 72 hours (ish) after our stay which is exactly right. Now - we have stayed at this hotel before and really enjoyed ourselves so sent them a very lovely email suggesting that they address the conditions of their hot tub to prevent other people catching folliculitis as it really is horribly unpleasant. However - they didn't respond! We find this incredibly unprofessional and so have posted our complaint on here instead, which we would not have done had they simply responded.
