A wedding party at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in the Dominican Republic reports 29 out of their 31 guests were struck down with “food poisoning” whilst staying at the resort.
The five star Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe in Punta Cana is a popular location for destination weddings and celebrations, with several large parties of holidaymakers staying each year.
For one unfortunate couple however, their dream wedding became a nightmare leaving them battling illness for their majority of their honeymoon.
The newlyweds posted on TripAdvisor: “Out of the 31 of us, 29 people got food poisoning. One of our guests was hospitalised with salmonella poisoning.
“The only 2 people who didn’t get sick are vegetarians. I don’t know what they are doing in the kitchen, but my husband and I spent our dream wedding/honeymoon fighting over the bathroom.
“We are still all sick, and I keep getting texts from family and friends saying that they are not able to keep anything up or down since they’ve been home. This was 2 weeks ago.”
Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, commented: “I am deeply disappointed to hear of such a special holiday being ruined at Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe.
“I would encourage any holidaymakers affected by illness at this resort to seek expert legal advice as they may be eligible to claim holiday illness compensation.”
