WHAT THE EXPERTS SAY

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

Legal 500 (2016)

Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club, 2015

Irwin Mitchell’s International Personal Injury team have received concerning reports regarding guests who became ill whilst holidaying at the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club in the Dominican Republic.

Despite some positive reviews, we have heard reports that a number of guests have contracted food poisoning, a review stating that “you will need a strong stomach for the food”. Another holidaymaker described the food as horrible and said that is was served cold and could be very repetitive.

Furthermore, another guest reported that she and her husband became ill with diarrhoea and sickness whilst at the resort. Her husband required three types of medication and is still suffering on his return home to the UK. Another visitor also stated that a party of 11 all became ill with diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting. They described that on occasions, the public bathrooms were poorly maintained and said that there was a smell of sewage in the air.

Our team has significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract gastric illness. If you have also travelled to the Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Club and subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, we would like to hear from you.

"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."
