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. 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!

Beautiful Resort

I was at this resort for 5 days to celebrate my 40th birthday. The place is absolutely beautiful and we had amazing service the entire time we were there. The room was great and very clean. The food was just ok. It was not bad but more along average. There was nothing I ate that I thought was amazing. We arrived on a Wednesday and left on Sunday. The first few days the atmosphere around the pool was so nice and relaxing. The music was a great mix of everything. The activities crew were great and kept the games going but not overly aggressive. It was perfect! BUT Seemed like the atmosphere completely changed on Saturday. The DJ was playing nothing but rap music and the crowd seemed soooo much younger and rowdy. I am all for a good time but it was borderline raunchy and even the activities crew were gearing their activities towards a younger party crowd. I felt like I was at spring break and didn't really like that vibe. Been to a few of the Secrets resorts and never experienced this type of spring break atmosphere. It's just not the vibe I was looking for. Overall beautiful place.

Amazing resort!

We visited with a group of friends and had the best experience in Mexico we ever had! The staff ALWAYS had a smile on their face! The restaurants were all GREAT, I loved that you didn't have to make reservations. Drinks were not watered down like other resorts and they had top shelf liquor. Pablo at the front desk was very helpful and answered all of our questions. When our flight was canceled, he helped us find other accommodations due to them being booked up for another night. My husband and I celebrated our 21st anniversary while here, they sent us a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. Staff was always cleaning something at all times. The pool and beach was beautiful as well. Not one bad thing I can think of about this place. We highly recommend Las Americas for your stay!

Vacation

This resort is fabulous. It is an adult only resort which is nice, not that I have anything against children. Customer service was outstanding. Resort is very, very clean. Resort is an all inclusive resort. Resort had four specialty restaurants along with the buffet style restaurant. The specialty restaurants are Italian, Japanese, Mexican and American. I personally was not too impressed with the food on the buffet. Just didn't seem to have a lot of flavor. However that could have been a personal thing. We did find one of the restaurants, The Black and White to be outstanding. They served a small filet along with lobster, along with other choices, that was some of the best food I have ever eaten. The filet was always cooked to perfection. Beach area is great. Would go back for sure.

Riu is always consistent and amazing

The Las Americas was excellent. Service, cleanliness and food was excellent. I highly recommend the specialty restaurants. The buffet is the only reason why I gave 4 stars rather than 5. It was good but I visited the Riu Palace Peninsula just a minute away on the local bus and the buffet at the Peninsula put Las America to shame. I would recommend either but if you are a buffet person Peninsula. If you want great a la carte restaurant go to Las Americas. Also the Las Americas was adult only. So I recommend if you have 16-30 year olds...go to Peninsula.
