Illness stakes increase at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Punta Cana

  • “Severe sickness” ruins holidays and wedding celebrations
  • Food described as “terrible” and “absolutely horrible”
  • “Save your money and go somewhere else” warns stricken guest
  • Afflicted holidaymakers turn to YourHolidayClaims for compensation advice

YourHolidayClaims understand that an increasing number of holidaymakers are falling victim to illness during their stays at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Reports of illness at the Dominican Resort are currently present on the website TripAdvisor, and there are now nearly 1,000 “poor” or “terrible” reviews posted.

In a particularly alarming report, one June 2016 guest, who was attending a wedding at the resort, claims:

“[I contracted] food poisoning … along with over 40 other guests.”

“My boyfriend and I stayed 6/21 – 6/28/16. Shortly after our arrival, we ate dinner at La Isla and almost immediately thereafter became violently ill.

“It is now July 10th and we are both still severely ill.

“We have incurred medical costs and have been unable to meet our work responsibilities”.

The afflicted guest also reports that they were unable to enjoy the wedding celebrations and socialise with family during their stay because “everything I ate or drank made me run to the bathroom and I could not sit anywhere for too long”.

YourHolidayClaims regularly handle and successfully settle no win no fee food poisoning claims. In a recent settlement we helped a Northumberland family recover £19,500 after they contracted salmonella during a much-anticipated family holiday.

Our Head of Travel Laws’ comments on this latest outbreak

“It is very distressing to hear that both holidays and special celebrations have been devastated by illness at this resort.

“Reports of food poisoning at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Punta Cana stretch back a number of months now and I fear that many more holidaymakers may have been affected.

“At YourHolidayClaims our helpline remains open to anyone who has suffered from illness at the on their package holiday within the last three years.

“We can help you claim the compensation that is rightfully yours for the illness you suffered, loss of enjoyment and any medical expenses incurred as a result of your illness”.

Following my family becoming ill on holiday and my 2 year old daughter becoming particularly unwell, I contacted Anne at Your Holiday Claims from an internet search to see what I could do in regards to bringing this to my holiday company’s attention.

We are very happy with the outcome of our case, especially as we were not offered anything from the tour operator we had booked our holiday with.
