Illness issues revealed by recent Hotel Riu Palace Cabo Verde guests

  • Numerous holidays have reportedly been  plagued by illness at the resort in recent months
  • Some afflicted guests turn to YHC for legal advice
  • The hotel managements response to the outbreak has been heavily criticised

YourHolidayClaims are currently in contact with a holidaymaker who is seeking compensation, after having their holiday at the Hotel Riu Palace Cabo Verde spoiled by sickness.

Whilst speaking to our travel law team, the former guest of the five star resort revealed they suffered from a case of Shigella whilst staying at the hotel which lasted for a total of two weeks.

This enquiry comes on top of reports we covered in August this year, when another holidaymaker who stayed at the Thomson promoted resort revealed:

“Now to the Issues that are a bit concerning for such a big 5* star hotel.

“Sickness seemed to be quite widespread, 2 of our party had bad sickness spending a couple of days in bed and [we] heard other people talking about being unwell.

“Our daughter was sick at lunch and the waitress just kept looking but offered no help.

“We also had a meal with the chicken being raw inside and asked for the manager but surprise [they] couldn’t be found, so [I[ showed [it] to staff who quickly took plate away”.

Our expert solicitors’ thoughts

“We are now in the process of assisting holidaymakers who have fallen ill at Cape Verde’s Hotel Riu Palace Cabo Verde.

“We are told of issues at Cape Verde resorts on a regular basis, and it is massively disappointing to learn that holidaymakers who visit the country are continuing to succumb to sickness.

“If you are one of those who have been unfortunate enough to fall ill during your holiday in Cape Verde, then get in touch with the team here at YourHolidayClaims now to find out if we can help you”.
