Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort & Spa, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting
“I went to the Dominican Republic for a bachelor party and we stayed at lifestyles resort. On the second night I had to return to my room because I started to feel ill. I was getting hot flashes and dizzy. I returned to my room drank some bottled water and... See More laid down to rest. I woke up hours later with terrible stomach pains and nausea. From then on out it was a nightmare. I was projectile vomiting, had diarrhea and felt extremely hot. On the second day I couldn’t take it anymore and visited the resort clinic. They took my temperature and gave me some meds for my stomach. I purchased some pedalite as well. I was throwing up and going to the bathroom so much I was dehydrated. Hours later, multiple bottles of pedialite and I was worse then ever. I took the meds as recommended and n change. On the third night i woke up very weak dizzy and call the lobby number saying I needed medical attention. My friends got me out of my villa and we waited for the golf cart to come get me. I couldn’t stomach gagging. My body had nothing left to throw up. I remember thinking I’m going to die here something isn’t right. I get on the golf cart and driven to the clinic again. They say I’m very dehydrated and want to give me an injection. I was very nervous about this. I ask the doctor (which isn’t a doctor I find out)what the injection was and she couldn’t really tell me. She just says “if I don’t take it I won’t get better” so 15 20 minutes of thinking about it I finally decide to go through with it. I take the shot. I get driving back to my villa I drink a bottle of pedialite and try to sleep. I have one more day to go. The next day I have no change. Still vomiting still diarrhea, terrible cramps. So this is 3 days of being sick so far. Long story short It’s time to go home. I get myself together best I can. I upgraded my seat to first class at the airport so I’m closer to the bathroom. The person next to me is suffering from a similar illness. Now my head is really thinking. Lucky I only use the bathroom once on the plane. I get back to the states and I immediately see my local doctor. He said it’s a severe food poisoning. I get meds for a week and after about 10 more days I finally was able to go to the bathroom normally. My stomach didn’t feel right for a few weeks after that. I will never return to that country period. I’ve heard multiple stories of people getting ill there. Not from the news but local people. Travelers be warned. Save alittle more money and go somewhere nicer.

Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort & Spa, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea Fever Nausea Vomiting
“February 2018 My family and I visited the Lifestyles Resort. 7 out of 10 of us feel ill one evening after eating at the resort. Within a few hours of the meal I experiences extreme Nausea, a High Fever, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Shaking, etc. I have had food poisoning in the... See More past and this was 10 times worse. I was careful not to drink water from the tap. I even went to the extreme of brushing my teeth with bottled water. I do not drink much, but that day I had several frozen margaritas from the Ocean Bar and attended the family dinner at a villa on the resort grounds. The resort prepared a special dinner at the house for my family. The dinner included shrimp, lobster, steak, and side dishes. I consumed all three proteins - Seafood and Steak. Both my parents, and several friends also feel ill that evening. Also, you can clearly see a stream of smelly sewage water running from the resort out to the ocean. This is between the Saffron Restaurant and the Confesi Palm Resort (Part of the Lifestyles Resort). Also further down the beach you can see and smell another stream of sewage water running from the Lifestyles resort. Clearly this property has issues with the treatment of its sewage and management of water. Additionally, I believe their food handling is not properly done as I have seen food trucks that were unrefrigerated delivering food the numerous villas and restaurants around the resort. If food is exposed to extreme temperatures and not properly refrigerated you will have contaminated food. I will never return to this resort or the Dominican Republic. I think the entire country lacks in basic food safety knowledge.

LHVC Resorts Residence Suites, Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic

Type: Poisoned
Symptoms: Diarrhea
“Four of us visited this place. Over the course of our week stay their, each of us became varying degrees of ill. My mother, in particular, got a case of diarrhea so badly we needed to go to the on-site doctor and get her an IV because she was so... See More dehydrated. Best we can tell, despite our best efforts to avoid ingesting the local water (which we knew was not safe) the coffee pot in our room was washed with tap water, not filtered water, and so she got infected that way. I ended up with cramping and stool troubles a few days in, resulting in a steady diet of pepto bismal to keep myself functioning, my brother caught a bad throat infection from sources unknown, and on the flight back, my father also had explosive diarrhea, which he contained by downing anti-diarrheal medication, and is now vomiting the morning after.

I have no specifics on further cases, but on the one excursion I went out on there were three other people who had gotten sick with diarrhea. It was a group of 27. Symptoms began around the 10th and 11th of June, it is now the 16th, and most of us are finally starting to do better.

“From resort. Our drinks were tampered with we believe. Severe vomiting and convulsions.

In Puerto Plata Dominican Republic at Lifestyles Resort, A few of has had a drink the bartender made which he retrieved the jug of mystery stuff under the cabinet. He called it mamajuana the next we knew... See More several hours had gone by and we didn't know how we got there to the other resort pool, My husband became very ill after just a few drinks. He is a large guy and can hold liquor but not this kind. My husband had to go to ER on resort and tgey told him he was just drunk. We knew that was not the case. They sent us away., My husband became ill with severe vomiting and chest pains and complaints of not being able to breathe. He started convulsing and vomiting more. It has been 5 days since we got back home to US and he still has severe diarrhea and chest pains., We think the resort food was not prepared properly for food safety which could have also been a contributor to his illness. I was also sick with diarrhea symptoms after arriving home. 2 other friends of ours were also ill with same symtpms., Our friends were also in our villa. They did not have much alcohol until last day and tgey had a few drinks on the beach and became severely ill the rest of the day and night.
