WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY
"The team at Irwin Mitchell has a ‘pre-eminent reputation’ for travel personal injury work"

CHIC By Royalton Luxury Resorts, Dominican Republic, 2016
We’re concerned to hear recent accounts from tourists who fell ill with gastric symptoms while staying at the CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts in the Dominican Republic in February 2016.
Despite positive reviews, we’ve also heard reports of guests falling ill during their holiday at the hotel. One was particularly troubled that some of the raw chicken and seafood was “not even sitting on ice, only in bowls next to the grill where they cooked the food”. Another holidaymaker complained: “the food was cold”. Other tourists at the hotel say that 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 CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts in the Dominican Republic and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, 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."
