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

Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa, 2017

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell are concerned by recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic between July and September 2017.

Despite positive reviews of the resort online, Irwin Mitchell have seen reports of holidaymakers falling ill during their stay. One holidaymaker claims that there were “rodent droppings on the balconies” and another claims that bar staff simply “dip a glass in water and refill” instead of cleaning it properly.

Some holidaymakers have also complained about the quality of the food - they say that the same utensils were used for raw and cooked meats and that meat was served undercooked.

A couple on holiday fell ill with symptoms including diarrhoea and stomach cramps. They sought medical attention at the hotel. Other holidaymakers have also reported suffering similar symptoms including a large group of holidaymakers where 15 in the party suffered illness.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness Irwin Mitchell know first-hand the potential long term effects that can be associated with such illness, with sometimes permanent long term complications arising such as Post infective Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

If you have also travelled to the Dreams La Romana Resort & Spa in the Dominican Republic and subsequently fallen ill, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
