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 – the lobby features painted ceilings and crystal chandeliers.

A little bit of paradise

We went on this trip my husband and my two adult children ages 22 and 26. We had a wonderful time. The service here was wonderful. All the employees were outstanding. Rooms were very comfortable and relaxing. Nightly shows. Daily activities. Fun Sun and relaxation. Could not have asked for a better experience.More

Family and friends summer vacation

Really enjoyed this hotel last summer I could have gone back this year too. Absolutely Beautiful property in a good location . He food was very good, especially breakfast!!! So many choices for breakfast. You must make reservations for the speciality restaurants, which were good but not great, we enjoyed the buffet more. Fun pool, good pool bar and fun entertainment staff. Great drinks and friendly bartenders. We loved the barbecue cool out by the pool over the weekend, great seafood, burgers and Bbq . We enjoyed the Riu property next door , fun club .. Our hotel had Nice roomy rooms. We also enjoyed the ocean view and balcony. Take plenty of sun screen very hot in August. We Will certainly return to the Rui.More

Phenomenal two weeks in Hotel Riu Palace Las Americas

I stayed here in July for two weeks with my family. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. It is not the most modern decor but it is classy. The rooms are nice and spacious with very comfortable beds. The buffet style restaurant, the Italian restaurant and the outdoor restaurant were all lovely. You will not be short of food here! There are plenty of bars around the hotel. During the day we spent most of our time either on the beach or by the more lively pool. The beach is great and the water is fantastic. There are no umbrellas on the beach which isn't great. The more lively pool has music playing throughout the day and the entertainment team running different activities throughout the day such as aqua aerobics, salsa dancing, basket ball. They are a great laugh but do not lie by this pool if you plan on sleeping. There is another pool that you can go to but it is quite quiet and not many people there. In the evening they often have shows and other entertainment. The beach party was by far the best entertainment they had on in the evenings. However, make sure you wear bug spray. The entertainment staff are great! If you want to go to a club I would recommend going with them.. no queues and a reserved area. They go to a different club every evening. Alberto and Rose were particularly lovely people. Always smiling and great fun to be around. Friendly to absolutely everyone. As an over all, the staff were great. With the exception of one or two bar men, everyone was friendly and extremely helpful. The location of the hotel was perfect. It was within walking distance of all the nightclubs and bars however, you were not in the middle of the madness. Would definitely recommend this hotel. I will be returning in the future.More

Nice staff

Very nice staff, always greeting our son with happy faces, very helpful in accommodating change in room after the first room was very humid (even the sheets were wet). Easy to make reservations. The buffet was great, especially during breakfast. The room service menu could use some more variety.More

5 Days of Pure Bliss

My best friend and I arrived in Cancun last Monday and were picked up by Lomas Travel and whisked to this AMAZING hotel! Right when you walk in you really feel like royalty. We were handed welcome drinks as we checked in with Marlene at the front desk. She upgraded us to an ocean view room, which was great and she was really fantastic and helpful. We got there early so we did have to wait for our room to be ready, but there is so much going on and so many excellent choices to eat we were not at a loss for what to do!! When we finally got in our room and got cleaned up we headed down to dinner at the Don Roberto restaurant, which is a really really nice buffet...there was also a Marlene in there and she took excellent care of us. The food was fabulous as were the desserts and service. We got back to our room after dinner and noticed our room was really really hot, like uncomfortable hot, so we called the front desk to see if they could send someone up...while we were waiting we both tried reading the instructions underneath the thermostat on how to turn on the air...we figured we should be able to figure this out...well we did....you HAVE to have the terrace door completely shut or the air will not turn on!!!! The little pictures under the thermostat should have given us a clue but...you know stupid Americans!!! LOL The pool everyday was amazing...the pool bars were great too...all the drinks were so good!! We ate at all the restaurants...the steakhouse was our favorite...I got Lobster and my friend got the NY Strip...both cooked to perfection and yummy!!! Every day there is a full entertainment staff and they work tirelessly to make sure everyone is having a great time!!! We really like Rosa, Rodrigo, Beto and Pineapple:) They had crazy games in the pool everyday and volleyball!! At night they had all kinds of things going on in the theater and we caught every show....All were great!!! All in all this hotel is hands down the best place to stay in in Cancun!!! We will definitely be back again!!!!More
