Blau Varadero Hotel

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell are concerned to learn of recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Blau Varadero Hotel in Cuba in January and February 2016.
Despite positive reviews, Irwin Mitchell have learnt of reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel. Holidaymakers claim that some of the “food was stale, such as some of the sandwiches and the desserts”  and that "some of the watermelon was discoloured and there was some…overripe passion fruit left on offer to guests”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea and nausea.
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, Irwin Mitchell 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 Varadero Hotel in Cuba and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.

"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."
