14th Trip

Post by diehlda »

CAN'T WAIT for our upcoming 15th visit to TRS / Grand Palladium in late October. We discovered this beautiful resort in 2010 while vacationing with our 2 children and another family and stayed in Kantenah. We all had a BLAST!

Why keep coming back? The same reason you dine over and over at your favorite local know you will LOVE it! And yes, we have stayed at other resorts in Mexico but TRS is number one for us.
It is TRUE what the reviews say. The staff treats you with such warmth and hospitality. TRS aims to meet your expectations and will go above and beyond to make your vacation a trip of a lifetime.

Our last visit to TRS was July 26 - August 2nd of this year, and we stayed in Villa 68. Thanks Roxanne for greeting us upon arrival and Miquel for making check in seamless. Jose at TRS lobby bar makes amazing drinks and we loved stopping by each day to visit.

We have stayed at TRS 8 times and have seen the transformation from the old TRS to the newly renovated TRS. Each time we visit, we always experience something new. We like how there is no learning curve for us. We know exactly how to spend our day going to our favorite places, enjoying our favorite activities, and ordering our favorite food/drinks.

We spend most of our time at the Infinity pool enjoying the gorgeous ocean view/breeze and may watch a beautiful sunrise to start our day. Thanks Karla, Sarai and Silva for spoiling us at Infinity pool.

Whether you choose breakfast at Capricho or at Helios, you can't go wrong. Thanks Guadalupe for your excellent service at both Helios and Capricho for breakfast. Wendy, Marlene and Jorge were so attentive during lunches at Helios.
We have never ordered room service...maybe this will be something new we will try in October.

We love to walk along the beach or walk the covered pathways while taking in the sights at White Sands, Colonial and Kantenah. Great way to work off some calories. Thanks Amni, spa representative, for always making us laugh when we see you. During the day, some of the activities we have enjoyed either at TRS or rest of complex are: sand volleyball, kayaking, archery lessons, mini-golf, pool aerobics, salsa lessons, zumba classes, tequila tasting, spa (love the healthy ginger shots), country and burger party at Colonial, boat rides around lagoon, and the beautiful Chapel.

After dinner, we have enjoyed the shows at Colonial (love Rock Forever show), White party/Fire Show, Chocolate night at Hemingway, Silent party at TRS (so much fun) CHIC cabaret (FABULOUS evening but dinner is not to our taste) and relaxing in TRS lobby trying a new cocktail!

We have eaten at most of the a la carte restaurants on the entire property. Our favorite restaurants are those on the TRS side. Food and dining experience are a personal preference. We prefer to have an adult only dining experience so we choose to stay on TRS side. Plus the service and food at TRS are at a higher level. Tentazione is our favorite restaurant. Areli, hostess at Tentazione, is such a joy. Alejandro, bartender at Tentazione, is also phenomenal. Thank you Victor and Antonio for making my birthday dinner so special. We have also experienced the show table at Japanese restaurant (not in TRS) and would recommend it.

We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries on numerous occasions at TRS. Our butlers have decorated our room spectacularly. So many special touches that enhanced our celebrations. Thank you to our attentive butlers, Rafael and Raquel, for going above and beyond.

Just come with an attitude of gratitude as you experience the beauty of Mexico and the warmth of all the special staff who work tirelessly to make your stay truly a remarkable experience.

Thank you Felipe for the amazing BlackBerry margaritas and Jonathan for the spectacular birthday drink at Half moon bar.
We will see you again later this month...bringing more family members with us this time.
