Barcelo Punta Cana Hotel, Dominican Republic


We are concerned to learn of recent reports of guests falling ill with gastric symptoms during holidays taken at the Barcelo Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic in January and February 2016.
Despite positive reviews, we've learnt of reports regarding holidaymakers who fell ill during a stay at the hotel. Holidaymakers claim that some of the “burgers by the pool were pink and sat in the sun for hours”. Another holidaymaker claims that there were on occasions  “birds and flies on or near the  buffet”. Other holidaymakers report falling ill with gastric symptoms  - including 40 out of a party of 50 wedding guests.

Gastric symptoms can range from mild diarrhoea to abdominal cramps and blood in stools. Having significant experience in assisting those unfortunate enough to contract these types of illnesses, we’re aware of the potential effects they can have, with long-term and even permanent complications such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS).

If you also travelled to the Barcelo Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of illness, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, would like to hear from you.

For more advice on making a holiday illness claim, contact Irwin Mitchell on 0800 056 0066 or complete our enquiry form and we will call you back.

"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."
