Melia Dunas Resort

Irwin Mitchell has received reports of illness amongst holidaymakers who stayed at the Melia Dunas Resort, Sal, Cape Verde, during November 2014.

We've been contacted by a number of tourists who have had to seek medical assistance for the illness they suffered at the hotel.

The guests report suffering from symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting, loss of appetite and stomach cramps. A number of them were diagnosed with salmonella upon return home.

One of the holidaymakers who contacted Irwin Mitchell says that she had to miss several weeks off work due to her illness.
