Holiday makers travelling to ClubHotel Riu Bachata in Dominican Republic have reported on TripAdvisor that they were diagnosed with E.coli.
One guest claims that all but four out of a party of 27 had suffered sickness and diarrhoea during their time at the hotel.
âWithin 24 hours of being at the hotel, some of us started to be sick. By the end of the week, only four people didnt get sick. We also suffered severe cramping and diarrhoea. After consulting with the doctor, he advised we continue taking Imodium tabletsâ.
Having consulted with their doctor on return home, it was apparently confirmed they had contracted âE.coliâ.
ClubHotel Riu Bachata is listed as an all-inclusive four star plus Premier destination by First Choice.
Another holidaymaker said âwe were all sick with E.coli and the staff didnt seem to care that everyone was sickâ. âThere was mould in the rooms and in the fridge, and drinking glasses used at the bar were not washed properlyâ.
âClubHotel Riu Bachata is certainly not a five star hotel and I strongly wouldnt recommend itâ she concluded.
