WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"
Legal 500 (2016)
Blau Marina Varadero Resort - 2016
We're concerned to learn of recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Blau Marina Varadero Resort in Cuba between March and August 2016.
Despite some positive reviews of the resort online, our International Personal Injury team has learnt of reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during their stay there. One guest claims that some of the cold food in the buffet area was warm - "especially meats, cheeses, mayonnaise and yoghurts". Other tourists claim that the tables in the buffet area were sometimes covered in bird poo that was "dry and not cleaned for days". Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms.
Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness, we know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness, with sometimes permanent long term complications arising such as Post infective Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).
If you also travelled to the Blau Marina Varadero Resort in Cuba and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we'd like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases of this nature and may be able to help you claim compensation.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
