Reviewers allege “food poisoning” at Grand Riviera Princess All Suites, Mexico
January holidaymakers have complained of “food poisoning” during stays at the Grand Riviera Princess All Suites Resort & Spa in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. TripAdvisor reviewers have claimed that animals were left to wander in dining areas and that food was served undercooked.
Katie Flower says that she is a returning customer after visiting the hotel 3 years ago, but claims that it has “deteriorated beyond belief.” She goes on to explain why:
“In the restaurants, the temperature is so cold inside, the kids were shivering and all the food was stone cold! My husband got food poisoning from eating the undercooked fish! Even dirty plates weren’t removed.”
The huge complex has 1492 rooms and 8 restaurants; British holidaymakers can book all-inclusive packages through TUI with a 5-star rating. Kaveh Ghafouri, Another January visitor says he got food poisoning and claims that “dirty” animals wandered around the hotel, “…specially around pools walking between people and eating food inside the bins or residual foods inside people’s plates. Of course, they convey different types of viruses and bacteria to humans.”
