My son and I started with fever and diarrhea on day 3 of 7 and continued off and on throughout the week. I had a fever so bad I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. Very disappointed that the resort would allow … See More
a risk like this to happen. Can't say exactly where it came from but we were the only ones who ate the burgers at Pepe's (my daughter ate half of one and was fine) out of 7 of us, 2 of us got sick. The other family members didn't eat the burgers. Not saying it was the burgers that made us sick but it's a possibility. It was my first time out of the country and I was so excited to give this opportunity to my kids. I'm never coming back  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever

I ordered a cheeseburger and fries from the room service menu on 12/23 (my 3rd night of a 6-night stay). The next morning I woke up to an upset stomach accompanied by painful stomach cramps, chills, and severe diarrhea. The upset stomach, stomach cramps, and diarrhea have … See More
not gone away as of 12/26 (the time of this report). I could not leave my room for long periods of time as I would experience stomach cramps that resulted in the need to practically race to the bathroom every hour or so. Anything I ate went right through my system, so I focused mainly on staying hydrated. My stay here was essentially ruined, and my birthday was 12/26, so I also did not have an enjoyable birthday. If staying here, which I cannot recommend, I would avoid using room service and eating at the buffet (Buccaneers), as I saw too many guests (children and adults!) engaging in unsafe and inconsiderate food safety behaviors.  | Symptoms: Diarrhea, Cramps, Chills

I went to the RIU on 11/9-11/13 2023 and got sick on the 11th after eating liver and banana at the buffet in the morning. The worst pain ever, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, chills, cramps and dizziness. As I came back on the 13th I went to the … See More
ER and was admitted immediately for salmonella poising and was in the hospital for 5 days because the poison had spilt into my blood stream and almost attacking my major organs. The on-call nurse was charging us $300.00 us just for the taxi to take me to the hospital there in Jamaica, what a disgusting shame!!!!, almost died.  | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Fever, Cramps, Dizziness, Chills
