anyone see the majestic elegance review on tripadvisor..

Recommended Posts

I've heard that taking probiotics helps.  I took them 1-2 times per day for the days leading up to the wedding, and then also took them sporadically with meals in Punta Cana.  Maybe this helped me, but hard to say since I still got sick at the second resort.

Out of 29 guests, there were 3 who got sick during the week.  This usually lasted for 1 day and then they were fine.  I found the food to be really good at the Majestic and enjoyed it immensely.

 

After our wedding week, my hubby and I moved to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro for our honeymoon.  This is the #1 hotel in Punta Cana on Tripadvisor, and let me tell you, the food was FANTASTIC!  Lobster, steak, escargot.... their restaurants were super fancy and the food was amazing.  But don'tcha know it... I spent all of Wednesday in my room with vomiting, nausea, diarrhea and the whole bit.   By Thursday I was back on the beach.

 

I've been to Cuba 3 times and never got sick before.  I guess it's just bound to happen eventually when you travel to foreign countries, and it had nothing to do with the Majestic, in my case.  Just pack your meds and be prepared!

Yeah---Anyone check out the elegance brides page on Facebook?  Someone wrote a horrible review recently on the food, the wedding coordinator (who happens to be the lady I'm using), and other things. 

My fiance told me to stop reading them, lol.

I know!  I went to a destination wedding in Mexico and some people did get "sick" but nothing that we couldn't joke about----Plus immodium works wonders!  As long as it's not vomiting and food poisoning right?  Although it does seem like some people have gotten that. 

 

But you're right---I dont want to be blamed either, especially since it's not cheap to go!  I'll feel real bad that most people are forking out 3k for a week and end up sitting on the john the whole time.

I was talking to one of my friends today, and her theory is that it's the water.  Maybe those guests who got sick swallowed some in the shower, or while brushing their teeth, or something.  Because if it was food poisoning, or an outbreak of salmonella or something, wouldn't more of us have been sick?   It's just weird...

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
