No Dominican delight for recent ClubHotel Riu Bambu visitors

  • Family getaways plagued by gastric illness at the Caribbean resort
  • Lack of restaurant hygiene held responsible by some
  • Multiple holidaymakers vow they won’t return following their stays

Whilst researching into outbreaks of illness at holiday resorts, the YourHolidayClaims team have discovered reports of illness emerging from the ClubHotel Riu Bambu in the Dominican Republic.

These reports can be found on the website TripAdvisor, where holidaymakers have displayed their thoughts following ruined stays at the Thomson promoted resort.

One of these disgruntled holidaymakers revealed how they experienced a “mixed holiday”, before adding:

“The food was ok mainly but both me and my partner were ill after eating at both the Steak house and the Spanish restaurants so after that we stuck to the main buffet restaurant.

“There is definitely a hygiene issue at this hotel and we found food on offer at other restaurants that had been on the menu in the main restaurant the night before.

“This really took the shine off our holiday.

In addition to this other holidaymakers have also expressed their disappointment, including one former guest of the five-star resort who commented:

“I went with my husband and two teenage boys 18 & 16. ALL OF US got ill within the first 4 days of our two week all-inclusive break. Terrible tummy cramps [and] diarrhoea.

“Pools were [disgusting]. Not cleaned well. Last day my eldest boy got food poisoning and was throwing up violently all night and next day.

“All four of us are still suffering tummy cramps and diarrhoea. Although we are all taking Imodium tablets and rehydration drinks. To be honest, I’m glad to get out of the hotel.

Our experts view:

“The ClubHotel Riu Bambu is not a new name to us at YourHolidayClaims, as we have previously helped holidaymakers claim compensation after falling ill at this very resort.

“It is no surprise that guests at this hotel are continuing to fall ill if the reports that we are seeing are indeed true.

“If you have suffered an illness that has persisted for at least a week then we may be able to assist you. Don’t let illness have the last say, contact YourHolidayClaims today”.
