    i am sure it happens- just wondering what we can take for it. I don't want it happening on the wedding day

      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...
