We're at TRS Turquesa (Grand Palladium) now. Any questions?

Arrived yesterday at TRS Turquesa. We're in the 5500 block of rooms...3rd floor. Deluxe Junior Suite. Location convenient to everything. Never saw it mentioned but sensor in wrist band to access rooms so no keys required.. Nice! Room is just fine...exactly as on website. No leaks or obvious signs of wear or tear. Bed firm but very comfortable. Arrived hungry about 4 PM yesterday. Did room service. Grilled salmon was tasty but fries and fajitas barely warm. No reservations available for steakhouse La Parilla today but got Wednesday and Friday there. Only times available we're 6 or 10. Booked Japanese steakhouse for Thursday. We'll do dinners at TRS Turquesa Mon and Tues. Tried La Cathedral for dinner last night. Food was OK. Definitely a step down from buffet at Grand Palladium Colonial where we were in September. At breakfast right now at Las Torres. Breakfast food quite good here and I prefer the airy open window atmosphere here to La Cathedral which was kinda dark. Feel free to ask any questions as I plan to check in regularly Thanks.

"sensor in wrist band to access rooms"

Sounds very high tech 👌🏽

What are the buffet options on the TRS property? Have read conflicting reports on what restaurants have buffets, and seems they have "limited" buffet options. Kinda confusing. Specifically, Helios, but also feel free to add any info you can share..and thanks

Nice to see more and more resorts going to the electronic bracelet acting as room key. How's the beach/ocean? Wavvy/calm/seaweeds?

There are no buffets on the Royal Suites property. You have to go to the other resorts if you want buffet.

How are the drinks? Is there top shelf liquor?

Is there a specific dress code for the restaurants? We have heard from friendly friends that my fiancé should bring a sport coat and slacks for dinner. Is that true?

Also, what amount would you recommend to bring for tips? We’re planning on staying for a week.

Thank you for your help!!

Drinks have been very good. Read somewhere that no blenders but not true. They use blenders. Top shelf liquor available at all of the TRS (Royal) bars. Low wave action and low to low/moderate seaweed in ocean (just walked over in response to question. We've been at the Royal pool all day). Thought I read there were some limited buffet options at Royal restaurants for example at breakfast...will check it out and let you know.

Definitely no sports coat or long pants dreas code. Bermuda shorts (non cargo) and a shirt with sleeves are acceptable.

Have you had any problems with bugs in your room or mosquitoes?

Did you have airport transportation set up ahead of time?
