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

Legal 500 (2016)

Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville

Irwin Mitchell’s international personal injury lawyers are concerned to learn that guests became ill during their stays at the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, in the Dominican Republic, during holidays taken in December 2015 and January 2016.

Reports on consumer review website Trip Advisor have described the resort as luxurious but some have alarmingly described suffering from symptoms of gastric illness including abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting. One couple expressed their disappointment because their illness meant that they had to miss their Christmas meal.

Further complaints regarding the resort highlighted that the hotel was “dated and dark” and suggested that construction work in one of the buildings caused a strange smell and a lot of debris. Issues with the food served at the resort have been raised such as it occasionally being cold.

Irwin Mitchell has experience in representing holiday illness victims and has successfully recovered compensation for tens of thousands of people.

If you have also travelled to the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville in the Dominican Republic 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."
