I came across this page as I was searching "Dominican Republic and cholera Dominican Palace". I feel obligated to write that both my wife and I got sick. A few other Americans that we met also reported being sick. Also, I met others of several nationalities that reported similar sickness.
Mostly people said that they had a few unpleasant bathroom experiences and were then able to return to their vacations. My wife lasted two days before she was seriously ill. There was a doctor available and the treatment was caring and fairly thorough. We didn't bring our insurance card as I have traveled a fair amount and never had issues. On reflection it would have been wise to get traveler's insurance. That said, my wife had an office visit, a nurse's charge, an IV for rehydration, pills for her diarrhea and nausea, and antibiotics; the total charge was only $180 US!! I had to sign a statement that I would pay before I knew the total. I'm generally a trusting person and she needed the help. I was extremely happy to have not been taken advantage of in a time of need. I didn't expect to but it was a leap of faith. They're good people.
We speak very little spanish and appreciated that employees were very patient with trading spanish/english phrases to get what we needed. Plus, whenever communication was critical, there was always some one near to speak to us and help.
Always remember, you're a guest in another country. Yes, you've paid for your trip but be patient and humble. You are there for the experience. All in all, the Dominicans were good hosts and did their best to please us. Thanks for being good hosts. I'm sorry that I have to report that, no apparent fault of yours, my wife got very sick. Travelers: Be cautious but not so cautious that it ruins your trip.
Our room was clean and the food was above average. Maid service daily and eclectic feasts several times a day.
