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

Legal 500 (2016)

Dreams Resort, Punta Cana, Dominican Republic - October 2016

The International Personal Injury Team at Irwin Mitchell have been instructed to act on behalf of a British couple who became ill during their honeymoon to the luxury Dreams Punta Cana Spa and Resort in the Dominican Republic in October 2016. The clients have reported suffering with abdominal cramps, vomiting and diarrhoea whilst on holiday and following their return to the UK have sought medical attention.

Despite positive reviews, holidaymakers who stayed at the hotel in October 2016 have complained about food not being served at the correct temperature and birds landing on food.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in the stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness we 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-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
