I stayed at the ilberostar costa dorada in Dominican for one week and for the most part the staff were friendly, the food was good and entertainment o.k. However, for 5 nights I was bitten by bed bugs. The worst part of my ordeal was waking up, on my daughter's wedding day, to find bed bug eggs nested on my head. Bed bugs do not like hair, but my head was very hot and burnt from the sun and so they tried to hatch their eggs there. The following day the hotel did an extermination of the entire section of rooms. I was told this was just a routine procedure and of course, I was not aware of my situation,at that time.
The bites did not appear until 3 days after I arrived home. My mental state by then was extremely creeped out. I'll never forget my daughter's memorable beautiful day and unfortunately, my ordeal.
