Iberostar Varadero Hotel 2013

Irwin Mitchell has been contacted by holidaymakers who have suffered illness during a holiday taken at the Iberostar Varadero in Cuba.

One couple suffered a very unpleasant gastric illness, including symptoms of diarrhoea and stomach cramps which started during their holiday.

Some holidaymakers who travelled to the hotel in 2013 have also reported suffering from similar symptoms which one holidaymaker being hospitalised.

Despite some positive reports, a holidaymaker who stayed at the hotel described the food hygiene as “shocking” and observed a chef at the hotel handling raw meat followed by cooked meat and placing both on the same plate. Other holidaymakers have complained about food being undercooked and another holidaymaker described the front counter staff as “unpleasant, uncaring and rude” and referred to the hotel as being in “need of cleaning and updating”.

If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
