Hotel Playa Pesquero, Cuba – Salmonella Illness linked to Hotel

Simpson Millar Solicitors are specialist Holiday Compensation Claims Lawyers and can help holidaymakers who have fallen victim to holiday food poisoning and illness whilst staying in hotels abroad.

We are currently acting for holidaymakers returning from the Hotel Playa Pesquero in Cuba who have reported falling ill at the hotel in the Holguin region of Cuba. First Choice Holidays and Thomas Cook both feature the hotel on their websites and in their holiday brochures.

Simpson Millar is now acting for one holidaymaker who has been diagnosed with Salmonella which strongly indicates that food poisoning lies at the root of the problems in the hotel. Simpson Millar has previously acted for other holidaymakers who have fallen ill after staying at this holiday hotel and have blogged extensively in the past about the issues affecting the hotel.

Holiday Compensation

‘Luxury’ Holiday Food Poisoning

The hotel is featured by a number of UK tour operators, Thomas Cook and First Choice Holidays as a luxurious all-inclusive 5 star resort which boasts two swimming pools, five restaurants and over 200 luxury rooms.

Simpson Millar’s Travel Team urges anyone who has suffered with illness whilst staying at the Hotel Playa Pesquero to immediately get in touch.

Simpson Millar is currently representing a number of people who have had a terrible time after their stay at the hotel. The illness symptoms that are being reported are awful and have completely destroyed the chance of people enjoying any of their holiday.

Holiday food poisoning caused by Salmonella should simply not be allowed to happen at a supposedly 5 star hotel and Simpson Millar works hard to ensure that its clients will be fully compensated for the illness suffered. The Travel Team would like to hear from anyone else affected by illness in 2013 who can share their experience.

Tour Operator’s responsibility

Holidaymakers who purchase package holidays should be aware that the tour operator is responsible for every element of their package holiday which includes the quality of the food and water served in the hotel restaurants.

Holiday Hotel Watch

Family package holidays are expensive and people work hard to save for their annual holiday, often the only quality time that families are able to spend together during the year. It is therefore particularly distressing when illness strikes and ruins a family’s holiday.

A sickness outbreak at a hotel, such as the Hotel Playa Pesquero in Cuba, is often due to exceptionally poor hygiene standards for which the tour operator is liable and must accept responsibility.

Holidaymakers should also be aware of how much compensation they may be entitled to receive. One holidaymaker Simpson Millar represented successfully claimed compensation in excess of £5,000 after contracting Salmonella food poisoning whilst on holiday at another Cuban hotel.

Simpson Millar is a national law firm and their expert Travel Team handles accident and illness claims occurring on package holidays abroad. If you or a member of your family have been ill or sick on holiday whilst staying at the Hotel Playa Pesquero in Cuba telephone our team today on 0808 145 1353 or alternatively email us your enquiry now and we can provide you with free advice about making a compensation claim against your tour operator.
