    may 31-june 7

    My husband and I were at TTR May 31-June 7. We both got sick. Mine was from food poisoning from Margaritas and so did my husband from the Asian Restaurant, which lasted 7 days. I have had food poisoning before, and that was what it was. Not the water or too much to drink.

    Sorry to hear the singles were out of control with you. We arrived on June 7th and seen a bunch getting day passes. We wondered what the heck was up with that? But we did not see them acting out. Both of us did get sick and it def is something at resort. The symptoms are extreme stomach pains and diarrhea! And I also would get the chills. We got it after being there a couple days and Lori is still not totally over it yet. Let's hope they get it figured out quick, we love TTR. Been there 10 straight yrs and have never had anything like this before.

    We were there June 8-12. Neither of us got sick but the rooms were incredibly wet. We were TTR newbies and almost every group we talked to had someone sick. I was surprised at how many groups of single men were there as well. TTR "veterans" just kept telling us that the resort is so much better October through February. We're hoping to make a repeat trip in February but if sanitation issues don't get fixed we won't return.

    I would take a small can of Lysol and antibacterial hand soap if we go again....anywhere....not just TTR. I always pack meds....Pepto, immodium, Advil. Take packets of Gatorade powder to add to bottled water. I will say I saw the staff working extra hard to keep everything super clean. Our room was cozy, with perfect A/C & no mold.

Does anybody knows what happens if a guest punches one of this guys straight in the face, will you get thrown out???? First time visitor to TTR, this is what makes us think about what clothing should wife wear or swim wear!!! Not good, not good at all!!!

    Sorry to hear about ur trip!! That does suck that U had to miss several days do to sickness :icon_frown: I was there is May and several of my friends also got sick. I have been to TTR 7 times and this is the first time that this many people have gotten sick!! I agree with U...It's not good... I carry Lysol Disinfective Spray with me each year and drop the whole can in the intake vent. Knock on wood:aktion061::aktion061: I haven't got sick yet!! There are many threads on here talking about what the problem is!! :huh::huh:

    The entire can of Lysol into the A/C intake vent? if the A/C runs predominantly to re-circulate the room's air, and I would think that it does, that's brilliant!

    My lady would stilkl spray it direct on surfaces though, just to be safe.

    We also use the Lysol spray and since we've been using it (the last 2 trips) we haven't been sick.. well other than self induced.

    Lysol and Hand Sanitizer!!

    We always take Lysol, Febreeze and hand sanitizers everywhere we go even to a Ritz! Also, taking extra vitimin C or Airbourne always helps.
    When you are around so many people and so much food, it's easy to get sick.
    Another important thing is to never put your head in public pools!!

    I take huge precaution when is the flu season here.. My bf got asthma so when have a cold he feel life shit for like 3 weeks.

    So before I live ( 1 week before ) Take Vitamins C. Pack, Pepto, Gravol, Advil, Vitamins C, hand sanitize, Tums and my own bubba.

    Each time I got to the restroom I wash my hand. When I exit the pool directly go to the shower, don't put my hand in my face after touching anything ( chair, counter are the worst place for Germs. ) Also, I wash my face with facial soap. and everything is fine.

    I never, never put my toothbrush on the washroom counter. Always in the plastic cover.
    I wash the table right beside the bed before to put anything on it. Wash the toilette bowl with lysol and the door handle.

    Yep it take like 30 min. But I prefer to loose 30 min at the pool to get sick for the week !

    I'm a first timer, was there Oct 8-15 with my sister for a girls birthday trip. There were a number of single men but none of them behaved badly. Everyone was so respectful and awesome that I'm already planning my trip for next October! Even if I have to go alone, I'm going! It was that great. I think they probably let some bad apples in that time, and from what I've heard it isn't at all the norm. No one should have to deal with that shit on vacation!!
    As for the sickness, everyone during my stay was fine except once I had mild queasiness, and that was brief.. and uneventful if you know what I mean. I think that was just from the food/water Mexico style. Nothing that stopped me from having an awesome time! Probably nothing a good probiotic couldn't take care of next trip..
    I think it's a great idea to Lysol the place down and sanitize whatever possible, and I will definitely do that next trip, but whatever bug was going around, it was not there in October.
    I hope that makes some of you feel better, and if not meet up with me in October!!!

    hi .. i agree with you its going down very quickly.
    i bought there several years ago and usually go 2 or more times a year, this November was terrible.
    i was sick (uti) my brother got sick with a gi bug the hotel manager threatened to charge him extra for clean sheets due to illness. the owner closed the seafood restaurant so he could have a private party . i always stay on the quiet side obviously for the quiet. his party went on till after 2 in the morning. also the owner had friends with children wondering around the resort during the day. many of the guests where walking around and where made to feel very uncomfortable . just the lack of maintenance is deplorable . many many rooms had issues with toilets leaking. when i was there in march we complained about the mold issues. its a shame its a great concept but obviously the owners dont care anymore . i attempted at least 6 times to address issues with hotel management , tried to have a meeting with the owner rodrigue i thing or its roberto who never even made an attempt to talk to me . the hotel manager actually offered me a free 50 minute massage if i would agree to not complain. obviously i walked down the beach and payed for my own massage .. i wouldn't advise anyone to go there . its not the food its not the staff its the owner and his managers..

    Wow! We had the same experiences. My wife got sick on the 6th day and complained each morning about the air in our room.
    The single guys are a giant pain in the ass. I had similar talks with multiple groups of singles, all just trying to score.
    Thanks for posting, this was our first time and share a lot of the same concerns.

    I was there last June 14-24. I did not get sick, but my husband had a few days of stomach issues. What hit TTR was not isolated to TTR. It was at other resorts and also in the USA. Actually, the US was hit pretty badly with it. It was cyclospora that was being found mostly in lettuce. The sickness can last up to 3 months even with treatment. We knew what we were up against before we left the US.

    I have always had the rule, "Don't eat it if it's not cooked or you can't peel it yourself". I also took probiotics. I will start taking them again this year one month prior to our June trip.

    As for the single guys, I just avoid them if they are acting like crazy spring breakers. The biggest problem our group had was a married man groping women in the pool. He was taken to jail. It's not always the single guys that act up. My only complaint about the singe guys is that they usually take over the pool bar, and the dance floor at night not leaving much room for the sexy ladies.

    TTR is always remodeling something. We go for the people! The building is the oldest resort building in Cancun as it was the first built. After 40 years, most buildings do need remodels.

    The people are great, the pool is great, all inclusive drinks!!! What more do you need?

    I'm pretty easy going and not hard to please! I'm gonna continue going to TTR in June because the JUNE JUNKIES ROCK!!!! Great group to travel with and most of us go the 2nd and 3rd week of June. The singles that travel with us are the best.

    Sorry to hear that. I don't think we had any issues with food or the room. Putting hand sanitizer stations around the buffet would be a good idea though. Cruise ships are using them after all the issues they had a couple years ago.

    There were a lot more single guys than we expected, but I only remember one that was forward enough to be abruptly dealt with at Paty'os. There seemed to be a lot of support from everyone else around if someone got out of line. Of course we saw some guys that were just fallingdowndrunk, but we can relate to that!

    Lysol is a aerosol disinfectant.

    It is also a highly explosive/flammable aerosol , and is a prohibited item , even in you checked luggage .
