Memories Varadero Beach Resort, 2017

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell are concerned by recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Memories Varadero Beach Resort in Cuba between January and June 2017.

Despite positive reviews online, Irwin Mitchell have seen reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel. One holidaymaker claims that there were “birds flying around in the buffet and picking at the food”. Another notes that they were once served “undercooked chicken”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms with one individual subsequently diagnosed with Salmonella.

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 Memories Varadero Beach Resort 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."
