“rum on tbe boat to Catilina Island”
“Fell ill last 3 days of trip. Saw doctor at the resort (roughly $500 USD), he took a shotgun approach - said it could be salmonella, parasite, or extreme dehydration. Was able to make it back to the US where I visited my physician, did a stool sample, and confirm... that it was salmonella. ”
“My boyfriend, now husband, and I went to the Dominican Republic in May 2014. I got extremely sick out last day and night. The whole plane ride home, I was fighting to not throw up. I chalked it up to food poisoning because the food at the resort was terrible.... I had shrimp the dinner before getting sick. Now that all of these death reports are popping up, I am scared and thankful that nothing worse happened! ”
“Ich war dort im Dezember. Ich habe gegessen und getrunken nur von Hotel. Nach 1 Woche ich bin zusammengebrochen und wurde gebracht zum Krankenhaus. Ich hatte furchtbaren Schwindel und Übelkeit. Ich hatte Durchfall, Vomit und Fieber. Jetzt sind 6 Monate vergangen und ich bin immer noch krank ohne Diagnose.

“We decidedly to take a trip to Punta Cana for our 8 year anniversary. After a day by the pool we decided to head back to our room. My husband started acting strange. I was getting ready for dinner and he thought it would be fun to go in our... swim up pool, he went to jump into some of the other swim up pools and got into an argument with another guest. My husband did not speak Spanish, the other guest did. Next thing we know hotel security asked him to come with them. He went thinking they would resolve the issue. The police were waiting for him at the front desk and they had him arrested. Meanwhile I’m in the room getting ready thinking he went to fill out an incident report with security. I finally went looking for him. At which time they informed me he was arrested.
They then told us we were not welcome back to the property meaning we lost out on 4 nights of our trip with no refund. They wouldn’t let me talk to husband they simply hauled him off and had him arrested while the other party who initiated the conflict was free to go.
I went to the jail by myself at almost midnight. They wouldn’t let me see him. I refused to leave. When they finally did he was vomiting and sweating profusely. He said he felt as if something he drank at the pool had poisoned him. He continued vomiting all through the night into the next day. We are frequent drinkers and I have NEVER seen him like this. When I went back to see him he was so weak he would barely walk.
At the corrupt jail he was held with no charges and for 24 hours and only released when we agreed to pay one of the court’s corrupt attorney’s $1000.
At the jail we ran into 2 Canadian couples and an Argentinian girl going through the same thing. Be very careful, it seemed like a scheme everyone was in on.
Once we heard how others had gotten poisoned it all made sense. There is some shady stuff going on here. ”

“My wife and Inlaws all became sick at this resort on our last day staying there. I've never puked so much in my life. All 4 of us started feeling it sometime after a lunch buffet. It took 2 days to get a clean room that wasn't covered in mold.... The resort needs a serious cleaning on all fronts. Air conditioners not working... and much more. I wouldn't recommend this resort at all. ”
“Possibly food 2 out of 4 of us were very sick. Day 4 of our week stay was the beginning of the 48 hour illness. Symptoms for both teenagers were severe diarrhea , vomiting, fatigue, short fever and short headache. A physician came to our room to assist the first... daughter to become ill because she couldn’t be out of bed for very long. The second daughter was able to go to the physicians office via tram. ”

“I ordered a grilled cheese burrito box from here. I had same chipotle sauce from the Chicken Quesadillas put on there instead of the hotter chipotle sauce that it comes with. I swapped out the cinnamon twists for nachos and cheese. And for the drink I ordered iced coffee with... 3 creamers and 3 sweeteners. I also ordered an extra crunchy taco. About 12 hours later in the middle of the night, I woke up freezing with severe abdominal pain, distension and cramping. I had to run to the bathroom and my body evacuated whatever was inside like a big bird. It was diarrhea, with watery diarrhea to follow. I tried to go back to sleep and fell asleep sick from this. IT is almost 12 hours later now in the middle of the day, and my GI system is very inflamed. I am dehydrated, and called my doctor. ”
“I ordered steak salad and fried pickles with bread and butter. I ate half of my meal and went to bed putting the other half in the fridge for lunch the next day. I went to sleep and woke up a little later to run to the bathroom for some... diarrhea. Felt stomach sick and weak for awhile. Threw away the other half of the meal. ”
“1 3 to 4 hrs later i felt weird sicky feeling, and then was vomiting all night, next day felt a bit better but still very weak but no sick and day after really drained stomach pains but can't go toliet ”
“I went there on 8/2/20
@ 6:00 p. M.
I only ordered "pumpkin loaf".
I had Paid Cash.
I came home about 6:45 & ate my pumpkin loaf.
It was tainted with something horrible. So I spit it out.
*It tasted like charcoal !
After I ate the... pumpkin loaf i had called them 2 times & "spoke w/ Jr." He asked for my first & last name & phone #. He said that he would note it in a book they kept their. & That the next time that I was there they would give me a free pumpkin loaf.
I told him that I didn't want a free pumpkin loaf, I just didn't want anyone else to get sick from it.
I wasn't given a receipt & I paid with a $10 bill & .25 c
& received $7 & .10 c. back in pennies because they said that they were out of change. (nickels & dimes)
When I went there, I went through the drive thru & I was their from 6:02- 6:16 p. m. on Sunday, August 2nd.(I have screen shots taken from "google location time line".
I did not order anything else. I left @ 6:16 p.m. & I purchased water on the corner of Ventura blvd. & Channel Islands @ the "self fill up water tank".
I then went home.
I sat in my car & began to eat my pumpkin loaf. The first 1/2 of it was fine. Then I took another bite & swallowed some & spit out the rest. It tasted like charcoal. It was horribly disgusting! I went inside & threw up.
The next day I was still sick. ”
“I ordered through Doordash, restaurant does not care to tamper proof their bags, when the food got to me, it was just tied up in one primary knot which was my first qualm. After part taking in the food, I proceeded to feel very uneasy. The next day,I went for... a run as I normally do and ended up having an uncontrollable unpleasant accident on the track. This went on for two days, super outraged🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬 ”
“Got delivery and they forgot a sandwich. Called and had them send it out after original delivery. It was the only item I didn’t share and I was the only one who got sick. Horrid cramps, up half the night throwing up and diarrhea. Don’t want to assume but maybe... they did something gross to the sandwich...? ”
