Hospital near GBP el Portillo?

We're considering this resort for our summer holiday and wanted to know if there are medical facilities nearby. Our son has a peanut allergy.

There is a Doctor on staff at the Hotel. There is also a 24hr Emergency clinic in town a few minutes away. Although I would like to hear of anyone that has needed emergency assistance. Does it actually work ?

My hubby was ill first trip to Cayo and the live in doctor was great - gave him a very thorough check up and the hotel staff collected his meds from the mainland - he had them within two hours. The doctor then completed the 'fit to fly' paperwork for us and liaised with our medical insurers faxing the paperwork to them direct so all we needed to do when we got home was send off the bills. We settled direct in resort I think the whole bill was less than £80. Fortunately did not need to visit the emergency clinic on the mainland and by the way the doctor spoke fluent english

Can anyone confirm that there is a 24-hour clinic close by that would be able to treat a serious allergic reaction. We always travel with several epi pens and have never had to use them;however, we don't want to leave anything to chane.

Hospital Las Terrenas : 1 809 240 6474

From GP EL Portillo a taxi ride is about 10 minutes to town. There is a doctor at EL P, but we've never used the service, can't comment on when he's available etc.

Maybe if you emailed the hotel directly they could advise you.

Safe travels,

What about that new Clinic at the top of town that was being built. Does anyone know if / when that is going to open ? In January it looked like the building was almost completed.
