    I actually taped off the stat so the maid could not turn it on, (paranoid or what ?? )

    ''I,m no doctor'',, but I think the moist air coming off the Ac promotes a breading ground for whatever one may pick up.

    I saw this happen at a 5* rio resort ,, they had to shut the resort down for a few days to break the cycle,, new guest being contaminated by old guests.
    Got a free 2 week holiday out of it, but being there was not fun. ( rio credited room and airfare for futur trip )

    JUst be pre-pared and party on :)

    I really wonder if that's not the case at TTR, that this bug has been going around since the last time I was there and that they need to shut down to break the cycle. Seems to be the same symptoms described 90% of the time.

    Don't forget a 10 to 20 % illness rate is considered average when travelling south

    Sick people report their illness , few people report they weren't sick.

    Have to keep those numbers in mind and make intelligent decisions and take appropriate precautions .
    there are no hard stats for TTR , just reports on here and (tr)

    You may have a valid point, but we will never know, unless it gets worse, which it seems every spring

    I was there a couple of times with no issue, so I'm just praying it was bad luck. You get that many people around, there's bound to be colds being spread. I'm not getting sick this year!!!

    Stomach and respiratory bugs seem to be a common theme on this thread. Is water and ice a issue at the resort? We are heading there for the first time. Should I bring a dose of antibiotics or is a pharmacia close by?

    Lysol , and your own cup, maybe some Cypro,, and your good to go .


    These things happen all the time, best to be careful and prepared , and know when there is an unusual high # of sick.

    Go and enjoy , and don't drink the pool water or use their cups .

    We had a group of 30 we hung out with, almost everyone had a day or two with a stomach issue, most lost their voice or had it come and go, following the trip my wife is on day five of a flew and I am still struggling to get my voice back. Almost everyone we talked outside of our group also seemed to be similar with a day or two of issues with stomach bug or at best lost their voice, or had a bad cough for sure.

    lol,, two year old thread ^^^ ,but this year , was fine this year till our departure day,, was throwing up in the lobby wr,, Bonnie was sick the next day ,, 24 hour thing ,,, all in all not bad for 12 days , , but we have friends that had respiratory problems as you mention ( some pretty severe) .
    Main issue for our illness I think was cook at buffet was not rotating her thongs while cooking . I should of refuse the chicken she served us with the same thongs she was cooking raw Calamari .

    But overall was a good trip , always a few hick ups expected

    I realize this thread is two years old, but I've been wondering about this issue and if the respiratory illnesses that were so prevalent have improved with the Reno. I became extremely sick our last trip with a respiratory infection, which took three rounds of antibiotics and over a month to cure. Still have allergy issues, which I didn't have prior to that trip.

    This year we booked in the new tower because I'm hoping the air quality is best in the newest building. Any thoughts on this Donald or anyone else who would like to chime in?

    I found the air quality in my Jacuzzi room ( quiet pool) to be better then previous years . I found no mold on the mattresses as before . We did have 11/12 days of pure sunshine , so that helped .
    My voice started to go but came back mid term , but probably from drinking and yelling at bash , the music is very loud some nights.

    Donald,

    I must admit my mind is usually in the gutter. While reading your post I was wonder how in the hell would the female cook not changing her thong to another thong, or as you put it "rotating her thongs" make you physically ill? Although I have seen women rotating their thongs with men during the afternoon entertainment games that almost made me ill! LOL!

    Just got back from a week - I pretty much lost my voice by the end of the first day but I think that might have been more related to talking loudly (restaurants, etc. are horrible for noise now). Had a few minor stomach issues (similar to previous trips), but nothing major.

    So I did lose my voice after our first night there, but it could have been from partying at Bash. :) After we got back, I was sick for about a week with sore throat and sinus, but not sure if it was just from drinking and partying too much.
