Iberostar Bavaro Suites, 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 Iberostar Bavaro Suites in the Dominican Republic between July and August 2017.

Despite positive reviews of the resort online, Irwin Mitchell have learnt of reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel.

One holidaymaker claims that there were “bugs flying on and around food” and that some of the cold foods were not kept cold enough. Another claims that the blender used to make drinks was just being “rinsed with tap water”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms.

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 Iberostar Bavaro Suites in the Dominican Republic and have subsequently fallen ill, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
