"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

Blau Varadero Hotel, 2014

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team has been contacted by a couple following their two-week stay at the Blau Varadero Hotel, Cuba, in 2014.

The holidaymakers travelled to the hotel in Cuba for their yearly holiday but began to suffer from symptoms of gastric illness. They experienced severe diarrhoea, abdominal pain, dehydration, nausea and lethargy. These symptoms became so severe that medical treatment was sought from the local doctor and medication and injections were prescribed.

During their stay, the couple reported that the food at the hotel was below standard. They stated that meat was often undercooked, cooked food was frequently cold and dishes were often left uncovered for long periods.

The pair also recalled that there were lots of birds and flies in the restaurant and they’d noticed that many other guests at the hotel were also suffering from similar symptoms of illness.

If you have also travelled to the Blau Varadero Hotel in Cuba and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.
