“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. ”
