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

Legal 500 (2016)

Catalonia Hotel

Irwin Mitchell are concerned for holidaymakers who have stayed at the Catalonia Hotel, Dominican Republic, during January 2012 after reading reports of illness at the hotel. One holidaymaker has reported that he believed his illness was due to the health and hygiene standards practised at the resort.

Holidaymakers have suggested that the food was of a very poor standard with the food being served undercooked and often appeared that the same food was being served upon more than one occasion. It has also been reported that there were birds flying around the restaurants and landing on the tables. 

Guests holidaying at the resort were falling ill with symptoms of stomach cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting. It is possible that the illnesses were due to a breakdown in food hygiene and food handling procedures.

If you also travelled to this resort and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness or sustained an injury, Irwin Mitchell, who specialise in dealing with cases of such nature, 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."
