Simpson Millar’s holiday lawyers have been fielding enquiries from UK Travellers who have been subjected to severe gastroenteritis whilst on holiday at the Paradisus Varadero Resort and Spa in Cuba lately.

Holidaymakers are contacting us for advice on making claims for compensation from tour operators such as Virgin and Thomson Holidays after their holidays were ruined by illness and suspected food poisoning at the Paradisus Varadero Resort. The Paradisus Varadero Resort and Spa is promoted by UK tour operators as a 4 star all-inclusive hotel offering facilities which include a main buffet restaurant, Italian, and an la carte restaurant. 

Unfortunately holidaymakers have been left disgusted and appalled with hygiene standards at the property, particularly the swimming pool which is described as being filthy. Birds have also been seen contaminating the food.

Simon Lomax, the Holiday Illness Complaints Manager at Simpson Millar Solicitors said: “if it transpires that holidaymakers have been subjected to food poisoning at the Paradisus Varadero Resort they can claim compensation from Thomson and Virgin Holidays. Holidaymakers returning from the hotel with classic symptoms of food poisoning, i.e. profuse diarrhoea – dehydration – stomach cramps – headaches and nausea are entitled to feel let down by their tour operator and can claim compensation.

“UK holidaymakers should not be subjected to inedible food and poor hygiene standards. Claims for compensation can be made pursuant to the 1992 Package Travel Regulations for those returning ill from the Paradisus Varadaro Resort.”

“National law firm Simpson Millar’s Travel lawyers have an enviable reputation in claiming holiday illness compensation for the victims of food poisoning and holiday illness in Cuba.” 

“Our team of qualified lawyers are here to offer legal advice about claiming compensation for holiday illness and to also help holidaymakers to receive the compensation they deserve. I would encourage anyone who has suffered illness at the Paradisus Varadero Resort to contact us.”
