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

Legal 500 (2016)

Paraiso de Albufeira, Albufeira, Portugal

Irwin Mitchell’s leading International Travel Litigation Group has been approached by holidaymakers who travelled to the Paraiso de Albufeira in Albufeira, Portugal with reports that a number of guests have fallen ill with serious gastric illnesses.

Holidaymakers have told us that they fell ill with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea and vomiting as well as lethargy, nausea, fever and loss of appetite. The hotel has been described as not being of its labelled 4* rating, as the food was undercooked, reheated and reserved. Pest control was a real problem at the hotel with “large cockroaches” being seen in hotel rooms.

If you have been affected by gastric illness following a stay at this hotel, you may be able to claim compensation for your ruined holiday and also the pain and suffering caused by the illness.

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact us on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will call you back.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
