Majestic Elegance Punta Cana, 2016


We’ve heard reports of holidaymakers who have suffered from gastric illness while staying at from the Majestic Elegance Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, and are concerned for tourists who have recently returned from there.

Alongside some positive reviews on consumer websites, there are also reports from guests who fell ill during their stay at the resort. There are accounts of food not being served at the correct temperature: one tourist reports that the food was “very bad”.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. We have significant experience helping those unlucky enough to contract gastric illness while on holiday. We’re very aware of the complications that can develop because of such illness, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The effects can sometimes develop into a problem that is long-term, or even permanent.

If you also travelled to the Majestic Elegance Resort in the Dominican Republic and have subsequently been ill, we’d like to hear from you. We specialise in dealing with cases like this and can advise you on claiming compensation for your trip.
