British holidaymakers struck by sickness at ClubHotel Riu Funana

  • Numerous guests of the Cape Verdean resort claim to have suffered from sickness and diarrhoea
  • Concerns raised over multiple issues at the hotel such as flies in the restaurant
  • Some guests forced to receive medical treatment due the seriousness of their illness

It has come to the attention of the YourHolidayClaims team that recent visitors of the five-star ClubHotel Riu Funana have had their stays ruined by illness.

This comes after holidaymakers have taken to the website TripAdvisor to portray their views on the resort, including one disgruntled July 2017 guest who revealed:

“Flies – I think this was the worst in the holiday. Flies were everywhere, around the food, on the food, in your coffee whether we sat outside or inside. I think the hotel needs to address this.

“[I dont know] whether this was the reason or not, but I got ill and ended up in hospital straight as we got back from Cape Verde.

“I am still not well and had to have further blood tests”.

Furthermore, unnervingly it appears additional holidaymakers have also recently hit by illness, as another recent visitor of the Thomson promoted resort posted:

“The hotel is rated, by Thomson (TUI), as a five star hotel! It most certainly isn’t!

“Whilst we were there we all suffered from sickness & diarrhoea, which resulted in an expensive visit to the doctors (€60 each) whilst there we were greeted by lots of other guests suffering the same thing.

“In all we spoke to, literally, dozens of fellow sufferers!

“The island is great, the people are friendly, [but] the hotel was not!”

Comments from our Head of Travel Law

“It is severely unnerving that holidaymakers have been forced to receive hospital treatment following stays at Cape Verdes ClubHotel Riu Funana.

“The reports that I have read suggest that there is a widespread outbreak of gastric illness at this resort, which tells me that somewhere down the line there has been a major breakdown of hygiene at this hotel.

“If youve experienced poor hygienic practices on your package holiday which has resulted in you suffering from illness, then contact the friendly and knowledgeable legal team at YourHolidayClaims today to reveal what your claim is worth”.
