Recently I had the pleasure of staying at the TRS Yucatan, Riviera Maya, Mexico which sits between Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

TRS Yucatan is part of the Palladium Hotel Group, which is a luxury hotel group that has all different ranges of hotels in Brazil, Dominican Republic, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, and Spain.

While this is my first time staying in a Palladium Hotel, I can say that I will be spending my time in other Palladium Hotels in all of the locations that they offer. I was impressed, to say the least.

TRS Yucatan is one of four in this Pallidum grouping on the Riviera, in which it is the only one of the four that is adults-only. TRS is all-inclusive and while staying here, you have access to all four properties, where as, the other three properties do not allow you access into TRS. Presumably because it is adults-only and they other three are catered to families.

What are rooms available at TRS Yucatan?

There is a wide variety of rooms available, but I chose a Junior Suite Private Pool with a Jungle Garden View. I had always wanted to stay at a resort where I had my own pool available and I finally have done it; this is the only way to go, now!

What are the property amenities?

The whole resort has every possible amenity available. However, TRS Yucatan has the following amenities:

  • Adults only pool on the ocean
  • Saltwater pool on the ocean
  • Chic Cabaret

    • Restocked everyday with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks
  • Rain shower
  • Toilet
  • Bed, sofa, and big-screen TV
  • Couch and sitting area
  • Private pool with lounge and table outside and view of the jungle
What are the food and drink options?
  • Helios
    • I went for breakfast here almost every day
    • Amazing buffet and some items for order on the menu
  • El Gaucho
    • Argentinian food
      • I didn’t have a chance to try this but it was always packed
  • Tentazione
    • I did have dinner here one night

Floating breakfast with champagne in my private pool
  • This was a “treat yo self” day as I had the floating breakfast
    • An absolute feast served to you in your private pool with a bottle of champagne and rose petals thrown on water
    • There was more than enough food for two people and is the ultimate romantic moment

Day 4

  • Buffet lunch
  • Rest and a pool dip
  • Dinner at La Boheme (yes, it was that delicious)
  • Drinks and a show at Chic Cabaret
  • Off to bed early as it was time to checkout tomorrow

Day 5

  • Breakfast at Helio’s
  • Back to the room to pack and head to the lobby to checkout
  • Shuttle picked us up to head to the airport
  • Arrived at the airport where I checked in for my flight, went through security, and had a bite to eat before the flight

REVIEW:

  • I would absolutely stay here again, as the amenities and staff were incredible
    • From now on, I must always have my own pool but I think I will go for the regular suite or the ambassador suite with an ocean view
  • The food, the drinks, the comfort was all incredible
  • For an all-inclusive, it never felt that way due to the 5-star atmosphere
  • The only downside was that I went during COVID, however, I am (was at this time) fully-vaccinated and everyone on the premise wore masks
    • Some of the venues were closed but there was more than enough available that it you didn’t really even notice that this was during a pandemic
