Giardia diagnosis for guest at Melia Dunas Beach Resort

  • Holidaymaker contracts Giardia during stay at 5 star resort
  • Guest had to endure symptoms such as severe diarrhoea and crippling stomach cramps
  • Illness continued for two months after arriving home

YourHolidayClaims are currently in the process of helping a holidaymaker bring a claim against the tour operator Thomson Holidays after their stay at the Melia Dunas Beach Resort was devastated by crippling stomach cramps and diarrhoea.

The holidaymaker has revealed that the cause of the unpleasant symptoms was confirmed as Giardia, a parasite commonly contracted by consuming contaminated food.

To add insult to injury the familys Christmas and New Year celebrations were left in tatters after the symptoms for the holidaymakers condition proceeded for the next couple of months.

If you believe your holiday has been ruined by giardia, you can find out how our specialist team can help you make gairdiasis on holiday claim here.

Our Head of Travel Laws thoughts on this story

“We are currently hearing from an increasing number of holidaymakers whose stays in Cape Verde were ruined by outbreaks of illness.

“We are alarmed to now hear of guest contracting an illness as serious and unpleasant as Giardia

“Falling ill whilst on holiday can be a distressing experience not only for those affected but also for their loved ones. I would strongly encourage any further ill-stricken holidaymakers to seek expert advice and get in touch with YourHolidayClaims”.

Anne Thomson
Head of Travel Law at YourHolidayClaims
