Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, 2016

We’ve heard about guests falling ill with gastric symptoms while on holiday at the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort, in Aruba, during February 2016.

We’re concerned that in spite of some positive reviews, there were also complaints of illness from holidaymakers there. Most worryingly, one guest said: “we were informed by letter that sewage had mixed in with the water…and people were allowed to drink the water”. Others who stayed there said they fell ill with gastric symptoms.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. We have significant experience helping those unlucky enough to contract gastric illness while on holiday. We’re very aware of the complications that can develop because of such illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The effects can sometimes develop into a problem that is long-term, or even permanent.

If you also travelled to the Divi Village Golf & Beach Resort and have subsequently been ill, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases like this and can advise you on claiming compensation for your trip.

"We were very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were initially offered nothing from the Tour Operator. Irwin Mitchell were very professional throughout and we are very happy with the outcome."
