Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa

Irwin Mitchell have been contacted by a party of British holidaymakers who travelled to the Paradisus Rio de Oro Hotel, Cuba on an all inclusive basis in November 2016.

Two of the holidaymakers experienced gastric symptoms including diarrhoea, stomach cramps and sickness and have still not fully recovered since returning back to the UK.

The holidaymakers noticed that some of the food in the resort appeared to be reused and left uncovered for significant periods of time, and some of the burgers were served under-cooked. The holidaymakers also noted that there were insects on the tables and also, birds flying around the restaurant.

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 the Paradisus Rio De Oro Hotel 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.

"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."
