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

Legal 500 (2016)

Iberostar Laguna Azul, 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team is acting for a guest who became ill after staying at the Iberostar Laguna Azul, in Cuba, with his girlfriend this year.

The holidaymaker suffered gastric symptoms including diarrhoea and sickness within days of his arrival at the hotel.  Our client reported that some of the food was lukewarm and described that flies were often seen on and around the food. Birds were also seen pecking at the food.

Other guests have expressed that some of the food, such as chicken and pasta, was undercooked and a dead cockroach was left on their bedroom floor for days. It has also been suggested that a number of other holidaymakers have fallen ill with similar symptoms.

If you have also travelled to the Iberostar Laguna Azul in Cuba, and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, or sustained an injury, we would like to hear from you.
