The Resort of Puerto Rico is a popular holiday destination for a wide variety of holidaymakers whilst Playa Amadores tends to cater for holidaymakers seeking a relaxing holiday.
Both resorts offer a variety of hotels, many of which can be booked on an all-inclusive basis. The majority of these hotels operate to high standard, however a lack of care in respect of food preparation, food hygiene or general cleanliness can lead to potentially severe illnesses, including campylobacter, E coli, salmonella and cryptosporidium.
These illnesses can manifest themselves with symptoms of diarrhoea, sickness and stomach cramps. They can ruin a holiday and on occasion, can lead to long standing illnesses such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
If you have travelled to Puerto Rico, Playa Amadores or any other resort as part of a package holiday and suspect that you have suffered from illness due to poor hotel standards then contact us to see whether you are entitled to claim compensation.
