Barcelo Maya Beach, Mexico

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Travel Litigation Team are concerned for holidaymakers after reading reports of illness amongst guests staying at the Barcelo Maya Beach in Mexico during March 2012.  

Holidaymakers have reported falling ill with symptoms of gastric illness, believed to be food poisoning, after eating at the hotel’s restaurant., It is reported that holidaymakers experienced symptoms of vomiting and abdominal cramps after eating at the hotel’s restaurant.  

It is possible that a breakdown in food hygiene and food handling procedures at the hotel resulted in the illness.  

Holidaymakers suffered from a severe gastric illness, and after a number of visits to their local GP a holidaymaker was diagnosed with Giardia. 

If you also travelled to this resort and have 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 if you.
