Hotel Playa Pesquero, December 2016

Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a party of British holidaymakers who travelled to the Hotel Playa Pesquero, Cuba on an all inclusive basis in December 2016.

Two of the holidaymakers experienced gastric symptoms which included vomiting, incessant diarrhoea and extreme shivering resulting in one holidaymaker having to attend a medical clinic whilst on holiday.

The holidaymakers have said that they witnessed poor food hygiene by restaurant staff who did not wash their hands after using the restroom. In addition, they noted that there were a significant number of flies in the restaurant and on uncovered items of food.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the 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 have travelled to Hotel Playa Pesquero and subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
