Guests voice their complaints over poor standards at Melia Tortuga Beach Resort

  • Former guests reveal food poisoning is present at the hotel
  • Holidaymaker claims his Christmas was the “worst ever” following his winter stay at the resort
  • Additional hygiene issues also raised including problems with the local beach

YourHolidayClaims have become aware of yet another Cape Verde resort that has been subject to an illness outbreak, as this time the Melia Tortuga Beach Resort is in the sickness spotlight.

Reports have recently transpired from the website TripAdvisor, which suggest that food poisoning problems are present at the five-star hotel.

One distressed holidaymaker who stayed over the Christmas period commented:

“It was the worst Christmas EVER”

“The food was appalling, we were given frozen vegetables, undercooked vegetables, an off suckling pig on Christmas Day … the list is endless.

“There were wild dogs on the beach, endless amounts of cigarette ends and horse poo. Broken sun beds and more dodgy food in the beach bar.

“We only ate in the hotel so we know that the food poisoning we suffered with came from there”.

Other recent holidaymakers have also revealed how they have suffered from food poisoning whilst staying at the resort, and some have even claimed they have succumbed to illness twice during one trip.

If your holiday has been ruined by food poisoning abroad, you can find out how our legal experts can help you make a claim for food poisoning on holiday here.

Travel law experts disappointed

“Its hugely disappointing to learn that holidays have been ruined by illness, even more so over a time which is supposed to be special such as the Christmas and New Year period.

“The issues that holidaymakers have raised regarding the hotels standards are completely intolerable, and I should hope that investigations are carried out to assure that these outbreaks do not happen again.

“Its important to know that I and the rest of the YourHolidayClaims legal team can help you if illness has marred your holiday, start your holiday claim online now or simply give us a call on 0330 100 2851 now to speak to our holiday illness experts.
