Riu Palace Las Americas  

This elegant beachfront hotel doesn’t just look the part – it delivers a pair of sea-view pools, a stylish spa and a collection of speciality à la carte restaurants.

This place is just steps away from a stretch of gently shelving white sand, just a few minutes from lively Cancun. It’s got a pair of pools to its name, plus a dining scene that includes 5 speciality restaurants.

The hotel has twin turrets, each with a cupola and statue atop. Interiors are equally impressive – suites come with regal red and gold colour schemes, while the lobby features painted ceilings and crystal chandeliers.

My wife and me just came back from 8 days vacation in Cancun, the hotel is amazing, the food & drinks, the staff, the pools, the beach, the view and the room (it is exactly as in the pictures), you will not regret choosing this hotel, I suggest it if you have kids as well. There was just only one issue with the elevators, there are two, one did not work in the last three days and for some hours the second one stopped as well, we were in the eight floor, so we suffer a bit in the stairs. The wifi worked in most of the places, lobby, rooms and restaurants, there were some blind spots only in the beach.More

Simply Amazing

The hotel itself is in a great location. 10 minute walk from the nightlife (Coco Bongos, Hardrock etc) We recieved complimentary drinks at the lobby on arrival, which was a nice touch considering the 10 and half hour flight! We were upgraded to a seaview room so started well! There are 2 pools. One right outside the reception which sees only 2-3 hours of sunlight but the main pool that is used is overlooking the sea (well more so than the first pool iv mentioned) Theres music from 9 until 5 and the waiters are great. I went to ask for another drink not realising there was already one waiting for me! The beach is lovely as is the sea. Same great service as there is by the pool. The entertainment team try to keep a decent atmosphere going with pool/ beach games all day long... if you're into that sort of thing! The room was kept very clean 24 hours. Was sat on the balcony one afternoon for 15 mins or so... came back in the room was spotless, fridge restocked to the brim and towels changed. The staff were great, always smiling and pleasent regardless of whether you tipped or not. (Obviously we tipped) The food was great, if someone couldn't find something nice then they could do with a good slap because it catered for every nationality. The lobster in particular was very nice! I stated with my girlfriend and we both said we couldn't name one thing we didn't like! The variety of drinks, alcoholic or not was ridiculous. There wasn't a drink you couldn't have! Would definately go again in the near future, especially to see what the renovation is like in Nov 15!!More


Vacation & Wedding

This post is a little overdue, but I have to post what an amazing time we had there, AGAIN! My husband and I got married there last April and it was nothing short of amazing! The food, the drinks and staff make the stay very enjoyable. Our favorite bartender is Abundio and he is usually at the inside lobby bar. For about 6 months prior to our wedding, I had been emailing with Ana our wedding coordinator and she was so great about getting back to me in a timely manner. It was a little difficult to let go of the "typical" wedding preparations since everything is done when you get there, but she was amazing. The ceremony, cocktail dinner & dinner itself left me speechless. All of our guest had an amazing time and I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We have been there 3 times and would go back without any hesitation! If anyone has any wedding questions, please ask! I know how hard it is to find information!More

Great get away!!

Just returned from a 5 day get away 11/7-11/11. This was the first non adult only all-inclusive Resort that we have been to in several years, but since it was a "get away" and not a vacation my husband thought it would be ok and I am so glad that I listened. The hotel, food,drinks, and service was amazing.!! We did not go to any of the specialty restaurants because I hate to make dinner reservations while on vacation. But the food variety, taste, and the service was so great at Don Roberto (buffet) that I don't feel that we missed anything from not going to the other resturants. They had crabs, crab legs, lobster, mussels, shrimp, etc on the buffet (awesome). Ismael, Nick, Walter, Dennis just to name a few were the best wait staff that we have had this year, they anticipated every want and need. My only dislike was that you have to turn in a card for beach towels and they only allow you 1 towel per person per card, which is aweful for when you come out of the water and you dry off, you do not have another dry towel to lay out on the beach with. But since everything else was so great I still give it 5 stars. Lomas travel was the shuttle to and from the airport they were amazing, on time, and courteous.More
