Mum’s payout for holiday from hell, now she gives an eyewitness report

This is parts of the article published today in the UK about the Bahia Principe Hotel in San Juan, Domincian Republic:

A MOTHER who has won compensation for her nightmare Caribbean holiday is relieved her two-year-legal battle is over.

The teaching assistant, 48, from Crayford, who does not want to be named, was one of more than 500 British tourists who won a settlement of over £2.5million, having been struck down with a stomach bug at their luxury Dominican Republic hotel, and within two days of arriving at the £2,500 all-inclusive holiday, her daughter started projectile vomiting and.

By the end of the week she and her husband were also suffering from vomiting and diarrhoea.

She said: "My husband couldn't reach the toilet when we were there. I went down to reception to tell them to call a doctor and they said put a nappy on him to take him to the medical centre.

"The medical centre was about 10 or 15 minutes from the hotel and it was full of people.

"Some people had to have new mattresses because they hadn't made it to the toilet in time.

"There were children screaming all over the place and pregnant women."

She added: "It wasn't a great amount. We were very lucky as we were not that ill compared with some people. We didn't have any lasting effects and we were okay after September."


Here is a YouTube video from the hotel with complaining guests lined up!

According to lawyers involved in the lawsuit more than 1500 guests was effected and many still suffer with problems from their stay at Bahia Principe Hotel in san Juan, Dominican Republic.
