Gran Bahia Principe, La Romana, Dominican Republic

Irwin Mitchell has received further reports of gastric illness amongst holidaymakers who travelled to the Gran Bahia Principe La Romana in Dominican Republic. Previous reports related to March 2011 but we have since read of holidaymakers falling ill during December 2011.

One couple staying at the hotel for their honeymoon have recalled how they both fell ill with symptoms of gastric illness during their holiday. They had to call a doctor who attended to them in their room. They believe that approximately 100 other guests had also fallen ill at the hotel with similar symptoms of illness. One of the holidaymakers is still suffering with the symptoms in the new year.

It is possible that holidaymakers fell ill due to the failures in food hygiene and handling procedures at the hotel, particularly given that the doctor expressed concern for those who had eaten vegetables at the hotel restaurant.

If you also travelled to this hotel and have subsequently suffered from symptoms of gastric illness, Irwin Mitchell would like to hear from you as you may be entitled to claim compensation for your ruined holiday, and also, the pain and suffering caused by the illness that you sustained.
