Melia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell are concerned by recent reports of guests suffering gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Melia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa in Cape Verde between September 2016 and January 2017.

Despite positive reviews of the resort online, Irwin Mitchell have read reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel. One holidaymaker claims that some of the food was “undercooked” whilst another claims to have witnessed “bar staff just dipping used glasses in water and then re using them”. Other holidaymakers report developing gastric symptoms.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness Irwin Mitchell know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness, with sometimes permanent long term complications arising such as Post infective Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

If you also travelled to the Melia Tortuga Beach Resort & Spa in Cape Verde and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
