Our Opinion

Top of the line, beautiful hotel! The Riu Palace Las Americas is near the top of the list for 5 star resorts in Cancun. Great food, service and entertainment. Champagne for breakfast! Rooms are all junior suites and are very nicely finished. The beach area is a bit small, but they make up for it with 2 great infinity pools. A definite recommend for couples and families.

Riu Palace Las Americas

The RIU Palace Las Americas overwhelms the expectations of RIU tradition - luxury and style, exquisitely beautiful Spanish design and decor, complimented by incomparable service. Located right beside the incredible RIU Cancun, spoil yourself to an outstanding vacation escape of fabulous dining and lively entertainment. The RIU Palace Las Americas - pure class at its best!
Location: Beachfront on Cancun's exclusive Caracol Beach in the popular hotel zone, right across from Plaza Caracol shopping mall and beside the RIU Cancun, 10 minutes to downtown, 20 minutes from the airport.

    "Amazing Resort right on the beach. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Entertainment team is wonderful, tons of things to do during the day and night. The rooms are kept very clean along with the entire resort. Great food, in the buffet and the 5 restaurants. I have stayed at 3 Riu's, all in Mexico and they are all the best experiences." [...]

    "Seventeen of us (ages 6-56) stayed at RPLA Nov 23-30 and had a fabulous time. All of us would highly recommend the hotel for the great service and food. Snorkelling right off the beach was awesome. Massages at the spa very nice. Very convenient location for the clubs and shopping." [...]

    "Hotel is gorgeous, magnificient lobby; spacious rooms with mahogany furniture, marble sinks. Great location; beach small but beautiful powder sand with ocean floor sandy too. Riu Cancun beach next door is more spacious which you can use. Tried all 5 a la carte restaurants, they were superb. Buffet was of good quality, but always the same, however certainly enough choice. Service was very friendly and attentive. Thoroughly enjoyed our vacation." [...]
