Holiday Makers Fall Ill at Resort in Boa Vista, Cape Verde

British holidaymakers have recently contacted Hampson Hughes Solicitors to seek compensation after they were struck down with severe bouts of food poisoning and gastric illness which left them bedbound whilst holidaying at a resort in Boa Vista, Cape Verde.

Dream Holiday ‘Ruined’

The unfortunate guests looked forward to a dream holiday at a resort which is advertised as a five star Platinum resort.

However, one week into their so called dream holiday, “stomach cramps and terrible diarrhoea” struck.

The holiday was consequently ‘ruined’, with one client reporting that their suffering lasted over a month. The client required medical attention both on resort and upon their return home.

Unfortunately our clients are not alone, they report that during their stay a large proportion of guests became unwell and unable to leave resort due to suspected poor sanitation.

Further Negative Online Reviews

The luxury resort has also received negative attention from other holidaymakers via popular travel review website TripAdvisor. One holidaymaker reported:

“A lot of people were very poorly. For 11 days I was virtually confined to my room with very severe diarrhoea. A trip to the doctor cost me 110 Euros. Caught a glance of a list on her desk of the guests and staff she had saw for the same problems. Unbelievable.”

The same guest went on to state:

“Maids were seen going into rooms of people who were ill, with full protective gear on to disinfect. If we could have got a flight home during the 1st week, we would have. Reported illness to the rep but she wasn’t really very sympathetic saying they had been ill too.”

Other guests added:

“Go at your peril – you have been warned.”

“Very disappointed… Don’t waste your money here. More like a 2 star hotel at most.”

Shiamli Mehta-Cronie, Head of Travel Law at Hampson Hughes Solicitors, commented:

“I am alarmed by the reports from holidaymakers at the resort in Boa Vista, Cape Verde.

“I was alerted of cases of illness at this hotel just a matter of days ago and shocked to read reports of further holidays being ruined.

“I would advise those affected by illness whilst on holiday in Boa Vista to seek expert legal advice as they may be eligible to claim compensation.”
