Sol Cayo Largo Hotel, Cuba
Irwin Mitchell has received further reports of holidaymakers contracting symptoms of gastric illness, believed to be food poisoning, after staying at the Sol Cayo Largo Hotel, Cayo Largo, in Cuba during March 2012. Alarmingly, the specialist International Travel Litigation team at Irwin Mitchell previously received reports of illness following holidays taken at the hotel in November 2011.
Holidaymakers previously described how the food was undesirable and that food was served undercooked. One holidaymaker recalls how they ate shrimps which turned out to be raw. The holidaymaker suffered from diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach cramps shortly after. Holidaymakers have experienced similar issues more recently, reporting how the food was served undercooked. They state that the chicken burgers were raw on more than one occasion.
The holidaymakers have reported how they met several other guests who had also fallen ill with the similar symptoms of illness.
It is possible that the breakdown in food handling and hygiene procedures resulted in the illnesses complained of.
If you also travelled to this resort 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 if you.
