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.


Overview

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.

Great vacation

Just returned from a 6 night at the Riu Palace. Everything was excellent. Staff was friendly and the atmosphere fun. Food Wes fantastic. We visited the Riu club next door one afternoon and we had a great time there also. I would say the the Riu Palace would tend to be a touch bit older crowd.

This place sucks!

So disappointed... so much money and this resort is the worst. The motel smells of mold and is very outdated. It says ADULTS ONLY, but be prepared to deal with alot of teeny boopers on spring break. Everyone is crowded and on top of each other on the beach. Went to an adult all inclusive in the Dominican last year and it was awesome in comparison to this place. Best parts are is the staff is friendly and helpful and the food is ok, but nothing to rave about. I definitely would not recommend this place or come back here again. So disappointed.

Memorable

As someone who works in the hospitality industry, the Riu Palace Las Americas in Cancun was without doubt the most incredible place I have ever stayed, while on vacation. The hotel itself was like a palace, beautiful interior as well as exterior. Speechless at the view of the pool with the turquoise ocean behind it. There were numerous restaurants on site, as well as a nightly entertainment and bars. Despite all the amenities and beauty of the hotel it was, without doubt, the customer service that made our stay so enjoyable. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like royalty. The employees were always so polite, friendly and were constantly moving, waiting on every guest with a smile. I was amazed at how well a hotel of this magnitude ran so smoothly. I would definitely return to Riu Palace Las Americas and would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Nice place

Only been here 3 days and so far so good! Luis at the front desk got our room taken care of, I had request corner room 3 months then 1 week before visit but got booked in regular jr. Suite with ocean view. While he could not get me in the corner room.that day, he was able to reserve it for.the rest of my stay. Well done!! Food is good, even in buffet, my friend has found a chef who will make us anything we want!! The smell well hmmmm, I guess it depends on how sensitive you nose is. You can kind.of smell a humid like smell in the hall, but in BOTH rooms I was in, I smelled nothing. We have gone to show every night, theybare.fun and entertaining. A must is get a "dirty monkey" So the only complaint I have so far.. wish was there a channel guide in the room, grant it not there much but would be to nice what channels they have.Go questions let me know.

Spring vacation, 1st all inclusive

The hotel is beautiful the staff are all accommodating and very friendly. For our very fist time doing an all inclusive We were pleased to a point. They are an open air night club and if you want an ocean view you have to put up with the noisy from the night club until about midnight. The room was very nice. (but) I was getting sick almost every day and just before we left we figured out I was getting sick over night in the room. Never asked but we think that the air conditioner air filter system was plug. After all they just got done remodeling the hotel. If you want to go on tours to the Mayan ruins I would strongly suggest Amigo tours. There are out standing. As for kids there was one day where there were kids on the beach from another resort and when one of the hotel guest complained to 3 different people nothing was ever done. The guest that complained on a couple of other confronted the kids and their parents, and they left. They are several restaurants and all are very good, could use help on their steaks.
