"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

ClubHotel Riu Karamboa, 2015

International personal injury lawyers from Irwin Mitchell are concerned to learn that guests fell ill whilst staying at the Riu Karamboa in Cape Verde, during September 2015.

Despite some positive reviews, we have heard reports that some of the food was served lukewarm and on occasions, flies were seen landing on dishes. Other holidaymakers have expressed that the hotel’s chef handled raw meat without tongs before cooking it.

Guests have suggested that they fell ill with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea and stomach cramps, with acute symptoms lasting several days.

If you have also travelled to the ClubHotel Riu Karamboa in Cape Verde and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.
