Illness and poor hygiene ruin stays at Grand Paradise Samana

Holidaymakers have fallen ill on holiday at the Grand Paradise Samana after consuming lukewarm food. Others reported that hygiene standards were poor.

On the review website TripAdvisor, one holidaymaker commented: “There were always many things to choose from but the problem was the quality of the food. The meat was of a low grade and often had a very pungent aftertaste.

“The food was often cold. Both my husband and my son who will eat anything did not particularly like the food either.

“We all had upset stomachs later in the week for a short time though my husband needed Imodium to get back to feeling okay.”

Another hotel guest commented that much of the hot food at the resort was served lukewarm.

They stated: “Please know that I am not a food snob and have stayed at a lot of all-inclusive resorts over the years (both higher and lower rated) and the food at this resort is really not good.

“It was very bland and the temperatures just seemed off (hot was never hot, cold was never cold). I stopped eating meat and anything that could be spoiled by temperature as much as possible.

“By the end of the week we were only eating twice a day. Still needed stomach medication by day 4. Definitely the worst resort food Ive had in long time.”

Your Holiday Claims have successfully settled claims for holiday illness in the Dominican Republic. In one of our most recent successes, husband and wife, Michele and Steve Beck received £3,270 in compensation after illness plagued their Dominican Republic anniversary celebrations.

Commenting on the reports of illness at Grand Paradise Samana, Anne Thomson, Head of Travel Law at Your Holiday Claims, said: “It is always a concern to read reports online of holidaymakers falling ill.

“Hot food that is served lukewarm or cold food not kept at the correct temperature are common causes of illness in holiday hotels. It is vitally important that tour operators and hotel managements ensure that high standards of food and hygiene practices are maintained in order to protect the health and safety of all holidaymakers.

“I would urge anyone who has fallen ill on holiday at the Grand Paradise Samana to contact Your Holiday Claims for expert advice on how to make a successful claim for compensation following holiday illness in the Dominican Republic.”
