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.

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!

Great Place

This Resort exceeded all of our expectations in every way. The staff, the food, the cleanliness, and the entertainment was unlike any other vacation spot I have been to. Specifically the staff members Pina, Mari, Jack, Virgilio and Roxabeth made our trip so much more enjoyable with all their fun entertainment. I would highly recommend staying here to anyone! Can't wait to go back someday.

Amazing stay

We just returned from a seven day stay at the Riu Palace Las Americas. We were two couples and we throughly enjoyed our stay. The service was 5*. We never left the resort since there was no need. We had everything that we needed at the resort. They go over and above with every little detail. The place is exceptionally clean and well kept. The food was good and the beach was fantastic. We spent our days at the beach and not at the pools. It is so nice that everything is so close. You never have to walk more than a few minutes to get drinks, restaurants, buffet, cafe, & your room. A special shout out to our favourite bartenders Ernesto and Santos for keeping us entertained! The staff is super friendly and we never felt pressured to tip but we did in most cases. I would highly recommend this resort. It was truly 5 star in my opinion and we have travelled to a lot of all inclusive resorts.

Still a great hotel

This was our 3rd visit to this hotel in Cancun. We'd been before a few years ago. We were a little concerned what the revamped hotel would look like (other recent Riu hotels we've stayed in had a very bright and stark interior) but the hotel refurb has not done away with the colonial feel. We liked it generally. There are some good additions, great coffee shop. As always the food and drinks are of high quality for an all inclusive and there is plenty of choice with the main buffet and additional 5 a la Carte restaurants. There's a much improved wander along and get a table system for these restaurants with a buzzer handed to you if there is a wait time, so no need to book a day or 2 in advance like we'd had to on previous occasions.The hotel is also now adults only. Something which to be honest we would be keen on. What it does seem to have done though is brought a much more drunken element to the hotel, which is a shame. After all, you wouldn't expect to see people falling over drunk in reception.......but on occasion we witnessed this. Would we stay here again? Yes definitely it's a good hotel made special by the attitude of the staff, especially Enrique getting drinks for us by the pool, Abu in the cocktail bar and the lovely entertainments guy, Virgilio.

Another Awesome RIU experience!!

This was our second stay at a RIU property , the first time in Cancun, though. It was better than the first time. The Krystal Fusion restaurant was incredible. So good we ate there two nights for dinner. We ate at the steakhouse which was great too!! We feel so pampered at the RIU resorts. The staff is very friendly, always working, cleaning and making sure the guests are happy and comfortable. The entertainment/activity staff keep on their toes to keep everyone who wants to be involved, entertained.
