Famed for its diverse ecology and loved by sun-seekers for its beaches, in 2018 the Dominican Republic welcomed over 6 million tourists from all over the world. It’s an increasingly popular destination for British package holidays; tour operators should work with their partner hotels to make sure that proper hygiene systems are in place so that visitors are not put at risk of illness or injury.

Common causes of holiday illness in the Dominican Republic
In our experience, outbreaks of illness in all inclusive Dominican Republic hotels are often the result of breakdowns in hotel hygiene standards. Food or water can easily become contaminated with pathogens such as campylobacter, salmonella and cryptosporidium if standards are not adequately maintained.
Holiday Claims Bureau recently secured compensation for a British couple who were left confined to their room after contracting food poisoning at the Sirenis Punta Cana Resort Casino and Aquagames in the Dominican Republic. You can read more about how we won this case by clicking here.
Dominican Republic sickness advice
If you have suffered illness symptoms such as sickness and diarrhoea on a Dominican Republic package holiday, it is important that you seek medical advice as soon as possible. Even if you feel that you are recovering, a GP appointment could help to diagnose your condition and suggest possible treatment options.
In order to support your claim for compensation you should also:
- Report your illness to your tour operator and keep a copy of the sickness report
- Document any hygiene concerns at the hotel with photographs or video
- Exchange contact details with other holidaymakers
- Keep all medical notes and receipts for any out of pocket expenses as these can be included as a financial loss in your claim
