Dominican Republic Sickness Bug at Bahia Principe Hotel Generating Compensation Claims, Again
Travel law solicitor, Andrew Morton from Manchester law firm Pannone LLP, says guests at the four star Bahia Principe hotel in the Dominican Republic, hit by an outbreak of sickness and diarrhoea, may be suffering from the same bug that hit the same hotel only last year.
Andrew Morton commented, “We are receiving reports that a significant number of hotel guests at the 940 room Bahia Principe hotel are currently suffering from illness. Last year there were some 1500 complaints of sickness at the Bahia Principe and all the evidence points to an epidemic of at least the same proportion this year. We have also had literally hundreds of claims for compensation from other British tourists who travelled to the Dominican Republic, a holiday destination which seems beset by problems caused by poor hygiene standards. The Riu group of hotels on the island seem to have been particularly affected.”
The latest outbreak of sickness is affecting tourists who stayed at the Bahia Principe this season, and reports suggest that the holidaymakers are “furious” at the way both Thomas Cook and First Choice, the other operator using the hotel, are dealing with their complaints.
Mr Morton says it is important for anyone affected to make sure they register their complaint in writing with the tour operator, keep receipts for any medicines purchased, take photographic evidence of poor conditions, take the names and addresses of fellow guests who can confirm their claims and finally see both a doctor and a specialist travel law solicitor upon their return to the UK.
