Sirenis Cocotal, Dominican Republic

Irwin Mitchell is concerned to learn of holidaymakers suffering with severe food poisoning whilst holidaying at the Sirenis Cocotal, Dominican Republic in May 2012.   

The alarming reports indicate that guests holidaying at the resort were struck down with symptoms including abdominal pain, diarrhoea and vomiting. It is alleged that guests suffered severely and were confined to their hotel rooms for the duration of their stay.  

Reports suggest that holidaymakers complained of the food being poor quality, cold and undercooked. Further complaints suggest that the food was served uncovered and was exposed to the heat as well as flies and insects which was concerning. Guests have stated that the food was reheated and recycled. 

It is concerning to learn that such problems exist at the hotel, with recent reports suggesting that holidaymakers have contracted serious bacterial infections as a result of a breakdown in food hygiene procedures.

Such infections can leave permanent symptoms including an alteration of bowel habit, stomach pains and irritable bowel syndrome.  

If you have also travelled to this hotel and 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.
