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

Occidental Grand Punta Cana, 2015

International personal injury lawyers from Irwin Mitchell are concerned to learn that guests fell ill whilst staying at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic, during September and October 2015.

Despite some positive reviews, holidaymakers have reported that food such as chicken was undercooked. Another guest suggested that the fan on the ceiling of their room  was not fully attached and when plugging in an adapter into a socket, they described a flash and bang from another socket.

Visitors have reported falling ill with gastric symptoms including diarrhoea and stomach cramps, including a party of 11 guests.

If you have also travelled to the Occidental Grand Punta Cana 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."
