Multi-gen vacations can be tricky. There’re the kids, the parents, and then, the grandparents, who, perhaps, would like to make memories with their grandkids—but also be able to slip away into the more tranquil comfort of an adults-only space. Enter the premium TRS Yucatan Hotel—one of four all-inclusive properties that make up the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya complex—and the very answer to the perfect multi-gen vacation.

It’s the serene suite life for the win at TRS Yucatan Hotel.

“TRS Yucatan Hotel offers an idyllic sanctuary for couples and adult family members in search of a serene vacation experience,” says Pilar Arizmendi-Stewart, v.p. of sales and marketing for the Americas at Palladium Hotel Group. “While TRS Yucatan Hotel caters exclusively to adults, it’s part of a larger complex that includes family-friendly properties like Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa. Excitingly, a new addition, the Family Selection, is set to be unveiled in December 2023.”

TRS Yucatan Hotel boasts 13 categories of rooms, ranging from the extraordinary Ambassador Suites with a panoramic ocean view with a hydromassage bath to relax tired muscles after a rousing afternoon with the littles and a private pool to different varieties of poolside and oceanview suites. Standouts include the Romance Bungalows by the Lake if the grandparents really want to treat themselves, which have their own jetty, access to canoes and an outdoor Mayan shower, and the Suites Private Pool Garden View or Poolside.

Within the resort, TRS Hotels guests have three pools to choose from (and yes, they all have bars). At the Helios Beach Club Pool, they can hang by the beach, laze around on their lounge chairs or join in activities like aqua polo or waterbikes—think underwater Pelotons. There’s La Terraza, smaller, quieter and more secluded than Helios, and the unique saltwater pool at Las Rocas, fed directly by the Caribbean Sea, and highly recommended accompanied by mescal margaritas in the late afternoon.

The crowning glory of TRS Yucatan Hotel’s R&R for grownups is the Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness center, with a languid lazy river that winds around the hydrotherapy circuit, readily available refreshments and a complete treatment menu (at an extra cost).

There’s no shortage of eateries at the TRS Yucatan Hotel, especially since guests of this premium property have access to every other restaurant in the Palladium complex (but not vice-versa). This means a quiet breakfast at Helios by the beach or the slightly more formal Capricho can be followed by day of splashing with the kids at the neighboring Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort & Spa and lunch with everyone. Dinner can either be delectable steak sans kids at El Gaucho, the Argentinean steakhouse, or delectable steak avec kids at Kantenah.

A night out at Chic Cabaret and Restaurant.

And if an adults-only evening out is in order, book a Family Selection nanny for the kids and dinner for the grownups at the Chic Cabaret and Restaurant, the TRS Yucatan Hotel’s version of a Berlin cabaret with a generous splash of Moulin Rouge. The 3-hour extravaganza will take them on an enjoyable trip through the best of American and Latin music, with dancers, singers and acrobats gracing the stage while a multi-course meal is served with accompanying specialty cocktails.

So, are multi-gen trips tricky to book? In fact, not at all—especially when you rely on the multi-fun offer from Palladium.
