Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana, 2016

We’re concerned to find out about guests at the Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, falling ill with gastric symptoms while on holiday there during January 2016 and October and December 2015.

We discovered that among some positive reviews of the hotel, there were also accounts of tourists falling ill during their stay there. One guest wrote: “hot food was cold for breakfast such as sausages, beans and omelettes”. A number of those staying there report falling 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 Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic 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.

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact us on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we’ll give you a call back.
