Diarrhea

2 days ago

Since November 23, my partner and I have been sick with our stomachs with diarrhea. We thought it could have been something we ate at the hotel since we saw bad food at the buffet (bread with mushrooms, for example, or fruit with a rotten smell, or... See More butters WITHOUT AN EXPIRY DATE) we mentioned it to the waitress but it didn't matter. We've been having diarrhea for 3 days, when we arrive in our country we'll take tests to see what bacteria it is. | Symptoms: Diarrhea See Less

Nausea, Diarrhea, Fever

3 months ago

My husband and I stay July 8, 2022 through July 17, 2022. On the third day my husband became ill with diarrhea the next day he had fever and was in bed all day except for using the bathroom with constant diarrhea. The next day I became... See More ill with severe diarrhea and then the fever began for me. We lost the whole rest of our trip due to being sick. Once returning home I saw my doctor and tested positive for salmonella with a stool sample. While staying at this resort we heard other guest discussing their same diarrhea issues. This resort is not handling food properly. Nobody handling food is wearing gloves. Food safety should be a priority. I’ve been hung up on more times than I can count, put on hold more times than I can count. I’ve been trying to reach out to the US Embassy. I have had no luck reaching someone there. There is no one that seems to care about our issue. It is all very frustrating and disappointing to know that once they take your money and you leave there’s nothing that they will do for you. So at least we can all keep making reports and warning others and maybe somehow, something will change. Day 17 now with this sickness. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Fever See Less

Oh wow, my sympathies. My daughter and I stayed at Club Med in June and we both got sick as soon as we got home. I was sick about 5 days but her almost 2 weeks and stool sample was negative. I am reading many horror stories on this site. Good luck with the Embassy and my prayers to you and your husband.

Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting

Stayed 7/6-7/12 at majestic colonial. I will never go back. My kid was so sick we had to leave early. Food: this is my biggest disappointment. I understand that we were in a foreign country, but I can’t for the life of me understand how that’s an... See More excuse for poor food handling. It’s a resort. We paid a lot of money to go. Not one employee wore gloves. One spoon for the whole salad buffet. One spoon for 5 dishes that had seafood, meat or dairy right next to each other. Meat was either extremely well done or raw. The resort doctor himself said that he does not recommend the cold buffet , to only eat foods when they first come out or are swapped out for new and never to drink the water. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

My husband & I were there July 8th-17th and we got sick as well! On the 3rd day we got diarrhea & fever. Our whole trip was ruined! Got home and tested positive for salmonella. I am still sick. Day 17 with diarrhea. I am so sorry to hear about your child. It makes me so angry! I’ve been reaching out to the resort and the US embassy with no luck. Someone needs to address this issue!

See More the 7 days I was there, I started to get better. I thought it isolated experience until the reporting of the latest sicknesses.

I hearing all the news on people getting sick visiting Punta Cana, DR. This I not a current thing. People have been getting sick there for many years, but the resorts and government are keeping it under wraps. I went there on vacation back in 2015 with... See More my partner on got severely sick on our second day there. I believe it’s either the food or alcohol. Reported to hotel management and they just did not care. All I was request was another night to stay, which I was willing to pay for in order to feel better to travel back home and the Majestic Colonial resort refused. Once they have your money your on your own. This country should and their resort practices should definitely be investigated by higher authorities. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting See Less

Was great for three days, and then on the evening of day four we ate at the usual places but then after eating at the French restaurant I was in the lobby bar with family and about an hour later was all the sudden VERY sick. My... See More wife and I went back to the room where I was very ill, shivering uncontrollably to the point where all the towels and robes were used as additional blankets. In the morning I was not shivering and the fever was reduced because we brought Tylenol with us, but I was still very sick just in time to get in the vn to head to the airport. | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Fever, Nausea, Vomiting See Less

The whole hotel seems superficially nice but it is not. I had the worst experience I ever made. It started that the rooms are wet, aircondition is not working properly, employees open in the night your door.

But the worst thing was the food poison from a... See More hamburger at a food truck at the beach. My girlfriend and me shared one hamburger and 3 hours later the nightmare started, i lost consciousness, diarrhea, vomiting, maximal pain you cannot imagine. Also my girlfriend had the same symptoms. We had no other food than in this hotel, no food at the airport before, stayed already 4 days in the hotel, we wash and sanitize regulary before eating our hands. So no discussion that this could come from somewhere else.

The medical service costs for some tablets and electrolyt water 336 Dollars.
When I complained about the food poisoning no one took me for serious and they told me if not all other guests have it, it can be everything.

I contacted guest service (which does not care about guests but about sending them away). I gave them my medical report but they were not interested in.

No luck. I asked for the General Manager Jorge de la Vieja. The guest service manager called and repeated in spanish: oh you don’t want to meet them?
Wow! Here they do everything to unsatisfy the guest.
I do not recommend this hotel and also not the way treating guests. As long as you pay everything is fine but when you have a problem you get ignored.

So the whole answer from the General Manager shows again that they are not interested in solving the problem, tell you they are not responsible and want to make you believe you got the food poison from somewhere else. They even do not check the bad food to avoid that other guests can get it.

There were already 10 people in Punta Cana died in a hotel from food posion and they take it that serious : zero! Thanks for playing with our health and live and try to put away the responsibility. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting

The last meal I ate was at the Mexican Lindo restaurant in the resort I booked a 5 night stay at this Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. My last meal was at Mexican Lindo restaurant at the resort. Approximately 1 1/2 hours after my meal I... See More began experiencing severe abdominal discomfort followed by diarrhea. I barely slept that night. I checked out the next day still unsure of what brought on the discomfort and began my travels back to the States where I checked in to the hospital. Labs were done and came back conclusive positive for Colitis, food poisoning type 2. A stool sample revealed bacteria Salmonella. I was also treated for severe dehydration and lost 10lbs in the course of 24-36 hours. It was a horrible end to my stay at the resort.

We think it was at the buffet in the hotel, first my son was 8 years old, and then I, his father, it started with stomach cramps, then vomiting at the same time (at least 10 times a night), diarrhea, fever, body and body aches, chills and... See More headaches.It was definitely food poisoning, I then slightly have Digestible pain relievers were taken and fever juice hoping it would stay in the stomach, it only got better the next day. Please be careful with seafood and other foods that are not freshly prepared in hotels, as there are no hygiene regulations here and it is also not checked. I think that the food will be used several times and will not comply with the cold chain. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Cramps, Headache, Chills, Body Ache See Less
