Hygiene standards at the Valentin Perla Blanca Hotel slammed by furious holidaymakers

  • Many questions raised over the lack of food hygiene standards at the Cuban hotel
  • Numerous former visitors of the four star resort are reportedly struck by sickness
  • This is the latest in a long line of Cuban resorts that has recently hosted an illness outbreak

Whilst researching into potential outbreaks of sickness at worldwide all-inclusive resorts, the HIC team have discovered multiple online reviews which suggest that recent visitors of the Valentin Perla Blanca resort have unnervingly had their stays spoiled by sickness.

Many holidaymakers have left posts on the website TripAdvisor that detail the experiences of their visits to the Thomas Cook promoted hotel, including one distressed reviewer who claimed:

The buffet had the same old recycled items day in and day out.

Questionable food handling practices there too. The cook at the meat station frequently used the same tongs on raw and cooked pieces of meat.

My boyfriend, half of our friends and myself ended up with food poisoning despite being diligent about washing our hands, using hand sanitizer and using bottled water to brush our teeth with. By the third day of our stay, I came down with severe gastroenteritis.

On a happy note, my boyfriend proposed to me after dinner! But the celebrations were cut short because I ended up having to dash back to our room to throw up once again.

On top of this another recent visitor of the four star hotel revealed that the illness that they suffered during their time at the Valentin Perla Blanca resulted in them losing weight, before adding:

Now for the food part. Lets say that I never ate so much bread. Food was cold and everything [was] covered in cheese

Anyway you need to try Cuba at least once they have been hit hard by Irma but [we wont be] going back anytime soon.

One week after and we are still sick. We will be better prepared next time in 10 years.
