Holidaymakers seem to be un-happy with standards at the Riu Varadero and have advised others to âbe preparedâ by taking âall possible medications you may need in event of illness.â
Comments about the pools include âthe pool water was very hazy and did not appear totally clean!â
Visitors to the hotel have also said that the âRiu chain is no longer on my list as a resort to visit in the future.â Comments have been made regarding the cleanliness of the room, guests have said that âsheets were changed once in an eight night stay.â Rooms also seemed to have ants and cockroaches roaming around and guests were having to ask for water to be supplied in their rooms.
One holidaymaker has said that her 6 year old son became ill with âfood poisoningâ and required âmedical treatment.â
The illness is thought to have been caused by the âpoor at bestâ food. She said that the food was ârecycled throughout the day.â
She also noted that staff members were re-using guests water bottles and she witnessed âa lot of cross contamination.â
Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims said: âFood poisoning can occur when contaminated food or drink is consumed.â
âIt is important that hoteliers and tour operators ensure procedures in hotels meet internationally recognised standards so as to minimise the risk ofÂ any illness outbreaks in the future.â
âI would advise anyone who has fallen ill at the Riu Varadero to contact Your Holiday Claims for advice on how to make a claim for holiday illness compensation.â
