  Food poisoning
Graham Hill 14th January 2017
Hi All
Just returned from a 2 week break at this hotel where we ended up with food poisoning.
People were dropping like flies because of this and we're trying to get as much info together to form a case against the holiday companies who operate there.
Any help would be most appreciated.

I will be visiting PP this coming week. Is it possible that you had a reaction from the water? Or, if it was food poisoning, do you know what specifically caused it? I'm a little apprehensive as the last two times I visited Cuba (different locations) I got really bad diarrhea.

Hi Judi

As far as we know everything is fine with food. Anyway always recommend to drink only bottled water, not from the pile.
