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 two great infinity pools. Now an adults-only resort, this is a definite recommend for couples.


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 adults-only 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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • zakawakanaky : Livingston, United Kingdom

A 5 star that ticks all the boxes great al inclusive fantastic entrance leading to the main lobby and beyond wow the view of the pool and beach,the rooms are big and fully furnished fridge stocked daily. All the bars served anything and everything in a relaxing ambiance. Food in all the restaurants were of a top quality with a huge choice, I could go on and on having been 4 Rui which were all good this is the best.

Absolutely gorgeous resort!

This resort is absolutely gorgeous! Very clean, fantastic food, efficient housekeeping, waiters delivering drinks while you lounge by the pool/beach. 24 hour room service. 7 restaurants to choose from every night with no reservation necessary. My only critique is that the nightly entertainment was done by 11pm every night...a disco would be a perfect addition to this resort. Would absolutely go back!

Beautiful Resort

Great resort for adults to relax and unwind. Staff go above and beyond to cater to staying guests. Decor inside this Riu is more traditional, the Riu Cancun next door is more contemporary and 'youthful'. As a guest at the Palace you can always visit the other Riu hotels for a change of scenery but only the Riu Cancun is of a similar standard.As a solo escape to relax I welcomed the peaceful adults-only environment on this trip. However, I'd warn other solo travellers that this is a relaxed hotel with little opportunity to meet other solo travellers/groups as virtually all other guests were couples and majority are mid 30s or older...this isn't a pool party hotel!!! (Go next door or to one of the other hotels on the strip!)A sea view room is worth it...stunning views to wake up to. During US 'thanksgiving' week the beach wasn't too crowded and there were always loungers available. *There were 2 cons encountered during my stay:1. Maintenance work was being carried out and there was persistent drilling into walls which was unbearable. Staff were oblivious at reception and it took a number of calls and visits to reception to be moved -TWICE. Be wary during off-peak season.2. The gym is small, minimal equipment and only 3 treadmills working so if fitness and modern tech is your thing then stay elsewhere.

Great for Our Honeymoon

This is my first all-inclusive adults only hotel.We went for our honeymoon in April 2017. This is a beautifully architected hotel. The lobby is marvelously done.The staff are friendly, helpful, and full of cheer. The food was excellent. I had very low expectations coming into this hotel and I found all of the food choices to be of very high quality. The drinks were well balanced and the staff does an excellent job of coming around for orders. The beach front is well sized for after spring-break crowds. As an adults only hotel, I did not see one kid or even teenager during this time. Age range is higher at 30ish - 50s.Rooms are well presented with wood furniture. I haven't seen wood furniture in rooms like this in some time. The bed was comfortable but there is room for improvement with the mattress and sheet selection. Boutique hotels do a great job of this type of thing.For our honeymoon, they created a beach towel swan in the shape of a heart with hershey kisses adorned on top. My wife loved that. Especially considering that we had previously stayed at the Waldorf Astoria Orlando (and they failed to meet a request for our wedding night) before arriving, I found this accent to be well done. This is why Mexico is great -- they really appreciate your business.They gave us two towel cards and I lost one. Still, each day they gave us two towels for the beach and I didn't get charged for the lost towel card at checkout. Excellent service.We had a great time all the way. We never felt like servers were looking for tips BUT I made sure that I tipped the servers whenever possible. After all, this is the service industry and what better way to say that you appreciate than to show it in gratitude?Only thing I did not like is the beach sand and the nightly activities. It can get pretty loud and things don't calm down on the beach until 11 PM. There are a lot of cigarette butts on the beach. This is unfortunate but a part of the unappreciative people who come here. I wouldn't place this on RIU exclusively to fix as they actually put RIU lettering in their cigarette disposal stations all throughout the hotel. No, this is the stupidity of tourists.No issues at all with room service. They were outstanding and drinks in the room were filled each day. You must get an ocean view room if you can but all the views in this hotel appear to be outstanding.Finally, thank you to one of the chefs, Alonso for his incredible customer service, marriage wisdom (for us new honeymooners) and fantastic personality. We will be back.
