Secrets Silversands Riviera Hotel, Cancun

Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a party of British holidaymakers who travelled to the Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun in Mexico on an all inclusive basis in November 2016.

The holidaymakers stated that on some occasions food was undercooked and serving utensils on a hotplate were being shared between raw meat and cooked vegetables.

One of the holidaymakers experienced gastric symptoms including diarrhoea, stomach cramps and vomiting which led them to be admitted to hospital for treatment in Mexico and was subsequently diagnosed with the confirmed parasite Entamoeba Histolytica.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness we 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). Entamoeba Histolytica symptoms can include dysentery, bloody diarrhoea, weight loss, fatigue and abdominal pain.

If you have travelled to Secret Silversands Riviera Cancun, Mexico and subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
