Luxury Bahia Principle Ambar Blue, Don Pablo Collection, 2017

Irwin Mitchell has seen reports of holidaymakers suffering with severe gastric illness at the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Blue Don Pablo Collection resort in the Dominican Republic between October and December 2017.

Although there are some positive reviews of the resort on Trip Advisor, there are also complaints from holidaymakers who say that they developed various gastric symptoms including stomach cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting during their stays.

A group of 6 holidaymakers reported that they all suffered with gastric symptoms which ruined their enjoyment of their holiday. Alarmingly, they claim that these symptoms have continued since returning to the UK. Two other holidaymakers have reported that they were prescribed with antibiotics after being left with no choice but to visit the doctor while on holiday.

One holidaymaker has described the food at the hotel as occasionally lukewarm or cold. Another holidaymaker complained about the hotel swimming pool as they witnessed mould surrounding the pool as well as broken tiles. There are also complaints about the hotel rooms - one holidaymaker suggests that they were in need of a revamp.

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 Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Blue Don Pablo Collection in the Dominican Republic and subsequently fallen ill or suffered an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.
