“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. ”
“Food poisoning 13 out of 15 travellers. Through out the 10 days there. My illness started the day we left ”
“Myself and eight others got sick on our 7 day vacation. Super upsetting but all of us had diarrhoea, vomiting and stomach pains. We ate at the same buffets and lost two days of vacation. NONE of us drank the water only bottled. The food at this resort looks disgusting... and there was no lids...flies were consistently on the food. We were even asked to NOT flush our toilet paper...disgusting and not sanitary. Please don’t go to this resort. I have written reviews on the site so hopefully others can be aware. ”
“Me and eight others got sick at this resort. Even some neighbours got sick. It must have been the food or water. The buffets food was disgusting there. ”
“Family of 4 ate from buffet
We all vomited for 2 days and loose stool ”
“Poisoning - alcohol or chemicals I got sick on Day 3 of a 7 day vacation. I was with a group of 4, all 4 of us were sick, but I got the worst. I had swollen feet and ankles, sudden UTI, vaginal bleeding with pungent odour, diarrhea, vomiting, blood... in my urine, difficulty breathing, heart/chest pains, numbness in hands/feet, hand/feet convulsions ”
“I was in Puerto Plata from Feb 3-10. Been having diarrhea since Feb 5 and it's getting worse. Stayed at hotel.. I didn't drink any if there water while I was here. ”
“After eating at Ocean’s Greek salad approximately 4 hours later I was vomiting and had major stomach cramps. It took 2 days for to recover and it’s 6 days later and my stomach is still not back to normal.
6 out of the 8 people on my trip also had... food poisoning. Mostly from the Saffron restaurant and Oceans. Both are for only the Chairmen’s Circle level. ”
“Family of 4 ate from buffet
We all vomited for 2 days and loose stool ”
“A seasoned traveller, I took my dukoral before I left, didn't use any tap water was told the ice was purified and came from bags. Didn't eat any unpealed fruit.
It started on day 2 and was consistent. Every meal I would eat caused stomach cramping and several bouts of... dirreah. We are chairman circle members and only ate in restaurants and vip and higher bars. After a few days of this I was feeling run down but there was light at the end of the tunnel.
We had our final dinner at the Blue lagoon before going home. That night 7 of us were violently ill. Vomiting, diarreah, chills, aches, lethargy. Some felt fine after a matter of hours. My self and my family have had symptoms for the past 3 days. Since coming back to Canada the cramping and diarreah have subsided. I'm just working on eating a whole meal. My children continue to have diarreah and vomitting. If things don't improve today we will be visiting our doctor.
“Too much food? Or just had mamajuana! Not sure! I have diarrhea! Should I be concerned?? Diarrhea... me and my husband 2 days we’ve been here ... we feel safe so far ... we’ve been eating more than usual .. there are few flies ... could be it ... and... we just had mamajuana shot ”
“I went to the Dominican Republic to visit family and stayed for two weeks in la Vega which is close to the second capital Santiago . On the third to last day we went to puerto plata at the beach . That same night I got extremely sick and had... severe diarrhea . My stool was light brown with mucus!!! I flew back immediately to seek treatment in New York City . Turned out I had a severe bacterial infection . Won’t be going back for awhile until I figure out a way to cook my own food and filter my own water smh ”
“8:30 Wednesday 10/9/19, the bartender made a “special” drink, My daughter-in-law was nausea and had a little diarrhea, within 24hrs, she passed out. She had another episode so we took her to medical. They said she was dehydrated and gave her two bags of fluid. When we got back to... Villa she had a cardiac arrest and I performed CPR. It continues from there .... she is only 35 and healthy ”
“I got food poisoning the last night of my stay. This was on June 14, 2019. I believe I ate some contaminated seafood at the Mexican Restaurant on the resort complex. This Mexican restaurant was in a more remote part of the resort, so I could have gotten sick from... some food that was washed in contaminated water in this area. Anyway, on the night I got sick my symptoms were immediate and acute. I was up all night with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. I was scheduled to fly home the next day, so I took Imodium, and made it home. Once home, after the Imodium wore off, my symptoms returned. I continued to have acute diarrhea 2-3 times after every meal, and I experienced diarrhea all night long. Initially, my doctor treated me with antibiotics for travelers sickness, but the symptoms returned after I finished the course of antibiotics. The dysentery continued until I lost ten pounds, and began to black out. I now suffer from chronic dysentery. I’m under the care of a GI specialist, who is helping me to determine what caused the sickness, and to recover my health. Along with the chronic dysentery, I suffer from joint aches, severe fatigue, dry mouth, thirst, and dizziness. I am not the only person who got sick at this resort. The night I fell ill, I met a woman who’d gotten so acutely ill that the resort staff put her in an ambulatory vehicle they called a “hospital” to administer fluids and antibiotics to her. She said they made her lie in this “hospital” for 3 days so she could be recovered enough to be flown home. In general, the sanitation conditions of this place were sketchy. My room was dirty when I arrived; the sheets on the beds had not been changed, the air conditioner leaked, and there was a hole in the wall. The bottled water provided for us clearly came from the resort’s own tap water system because many of the lids had been tampered with. I don’t know how sanitary this water was, or how close it was to the sewage system. Many of the guests were told not to flush used toilet paper down the toilets because the plumbing was not working. In fact, there was rarely any hot water in the rooms, and our toilet broke on a regular basis. So, it is likely that a lot of fecal matter was not being properly disposed of at this resort. All I know is that I have been sick since I stayed at this place, and I have had to shell out thousands of dollars for tests and GI doctors. I read up on the safety precautions before traveling in the DR. While there, I was careful not to drink the tap water, and I only ate fruit with rind on it, like melons and pineapple. I mainly stuck to hot beverages when not drinking the bottled water. I thought I’d be okay eating the prepared meals in the resort’s restaurants because this is supposed to be a “luxury” resort, but apparently not. I still got very sick, and I remain sick, because I stayed at this place, and ate at its restaurants. ”
“Two travelers, both with bloody diarrhea. Vomiting, pain, couldn't leave bed ”
“My husband and I fell extremely ill after 2 days of staying at this hotel in Feb. of 2015 and we both had to be hospitalized on our return to the USA and i had pneumonia and my husband had bronciolitis and we never fully recovered and my husband had... a stroke after he got out of the hospital. We both developed parkinson's disease and have deteriorated since then. ”
“Rice Cây dừa Bought the 50 pound rice , eat for 2 months. Feeling not good. Last week I try to sate the rice over the pan the rice burned very fast becoming like a plastic after sate . I stop eat it for a week but still headache, floating... and tiredness all the time . The family of 3 we all eat it for about 3 months , we eat about 15 pounds. The white rice call Gạo cây dừa ”
“Hello. I ate a burger on saturday, March ,14, 2020 around 11am and shortly after eating I started feeling itchy and getting red bumps all over my body and I went to the ER twice. I have food poisoning. That was the only thing I ate that day before I... started feeling itchy. I have photos as proof. ”
“A couple minutes after I started the pita, my stomach felt a bit funny. I decided to save the rest for(this was yesterday btw) today because I might have just had a bad stomach. I ended up vomiting most of the pita up, and the part I ate today also... made me vomit. There is however a possibility it was from my gastritis, but nothing in my pita was harmful for an inflamed stomach, so highly unlikely it was that. ”
“I ordered #222 a small bowl of pho, a few hours after returning home, I started to get really bad cramps and diariah, thought it was gas drank peppermint tea and took gravol, I woke up a few hours later with the same cramping and diariah, body chills, nausea and... felt extremly tired. I went to the doctor and they ruled out food poisoning. This is very unfair, that they are able to still run their business. ”
“I got a double double animal style burger with some fries. I felt completely fine after I ate it. I ate nothing else after. The next day, when I woke up, I was hit with a wave of nausea. I could taste the grilled onions in the back of my... throat. Now every single time I try to stand up, my stomach gets really upset. ”
“I was hungry so i ordered wing bucket i had 4 pieces that was ok then one tasted strange but i was hungry didnt click could be bad then after i looked the meat was green yellow ish but i trusted now i will never buy again and sick day... 3 now i hate u ”

“At lunch on 03-11-2020. Ordered the Pizza & Salad Combo (Biaggi's House salad). My stomach starting feeling funky around 5:00 p.m. I I didn't eat dinner. Starting throwing up around 9:30 p.m. I notified the restaurant via their Facebook Messenger and haven't hear back from them. I basically just wanted... them to be aware and to pull their salad ingredients because I'm pretty sure that is what made me sick. ”
“I received food and it wasn’t very tasty it gave me food Poison I felt nauseous Almost immediately after eating The sandwich Not to mention the staff add this location is very rude they have no knowledge Of orders that are being placed ”
“I went 30 mins before they close. My husband went in and asked was it too late. They said no. It was his birthday & mine is the next day. It tasted funny like it had mustard in the crab cakes. Both of us got crabby pasta. I asked my... waiter did they change the recipe she said no. The next day i felt chills, followed by a headache, vomiting, weakness and excessive sweating. I post on Facebook that I think Copelands gave me food poisoning. Literally 4 ppl wrote me and said the same thing. Now I’m scared because I have 3 kids including an infant and I’m not sure if it’s Corona or not I’m just freaked out. I won’t ever eat at Copelands again! ”
