Widespread illness reported at the ClubHotel Riu Costa Del Sol

  • Holidaymaker turns to HIC for expert legal advice following their ruined holiday
  • Online reports convey major issue at the resort as many are struck with the sickness bug
  • Thomson are aware of the outbreak which has been affecting people since April 2017

The travel law experts here at HolidayIllnessClaims are currently handling an enquiry made by a recent guest of the ClubHotel Riu Costa Del Sol, who claims illness overshadowed her, her sisters and her mums visit to the Spanish hotel.

Worryingly, after inspecting reports made by other recent guests of the four-star hotel on TripAdvisor it is evident that additional holidaymakers have also fallen victim to this illness outbreak.

One affected holidaymaker who visited the resort in June 2017 claimed:

Having just returned from this hotel, it really is a lottery whether you get the virus or not. We were a family of 7 and 3 of us got it. It’s a nasty virus with D&V (diarrhoea and vomiting), aching limbs – I cannot ever remember feeling so unwell. I personally was unable to eat properly for the rest of the holiday (3 days) which is not my idea of value for money!!!!! 

I spoke to one of the managers of the hotel who didn’t really see this virus as a problem and told me that it happens most years during the first few months of the season. I was concerned about the vulnerable people staying at the hotel (i.e. in wheelchairs and with various disabilities). It’s bad enough coping with this if you are fit and healthy.

I think it is outrageous that Thomsons are knowingly sending people without informing them (we were not told).

Our holiday illness solicitors view

If the reports concerning the ClubHotel Riu Costa Del Sol that we have been notified about are indeed true, its vastly disappointing as they suggest that an abundance of holidays have been ruined by this bug.

Illness can unfortunately spread quickly in large all-inclusive resorts such as the ClubHotel Riu Costa Del Sol, conversely, however, that still doesnt mean that the tour operator and hotel management cant take action to help combat the situation.

If you feel as though poor hotel standards have contributed to a holiday sickness that has ultimately ruined your holiday, I urge you to contact us at HolidayIllnessClaims and let us help you receive the justice you deserve.
