Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting

I’m currently on my last day of vacation here at the resort and have been stuck in bed unable to leave the room. I tested negative for covid. I started having GI symptoms on Sunday and put myself on the BRAT diet which helped for the next... See More 3 days but today the symptoms are back and stronger than ever. I’ve been drinking only bottled water and sealed drinks. I was able to eat “regular food” the past 3 days but today had to put myself back the BRAT diet. The resort and the buffet looks clean but I am having a hard time trusting any of the foods. We’ll see how this pans out on my return to the US tomorrow. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting See Less

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

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

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

Grapes, We bought the mixed red & green grapes from on Tuesday 29.11.22. On the same day, we gave the red grapes to our daughter (19 months) to eat after we had grown them thoroughly. During the night, she had to break several times (6x until only... See More the gag and some yellow liquid came out of her mouth). We couldn't identify what she had eaten during the day and had the suspicion that she had eaten something wrong, but we didn't know exactly what it could be. Today, on 01.12. between 1:30pm and 2 pm, my wife ate some (about 10 pieces) of the red grapes. At around 3 p.m., she already had the feeling of nausea, which led to vomiting at exactly 16:25.

We are therefore 100% certain, as she did not eat anything else during this time and only the red grapes were visible in the vomit that it was due to the grapes. Even in our daughter's vomit, as she broke in bed, the undigested red grapes were visible next to other foods she had eaten during the day. | Symptoms: Nausea, Vomiting
