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.

My trip to the Riu las Americas Cancun

I will never return nor recommend to friends or family.A snow storm that shut down most East Coast Airports delayed our trip for almost 2 full days.The Riu palace refused to accommodate us at all in this situation.We asked the hotel to extend our stay by one day while we were there and we were told no cant help you.The hotel was less than full and a sister hotel right Nextdoor also half full,I was told if I wanted to stay I would have to pay again for the night we lost which was close to 400 dollars.Upset from the beginning or this trip and will never return. Thanx for nothing Riu las Americas Cancun 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻🤔😟 More

Nice Property

This was the first time my husband and I had gone to an all-inclusive resort. Our room was very spacious; exactly as pictured. We opted for an ocean view-I feel it was worth it for the price. The food was very good-the breakfast buffet is far better than on any cruise ship we've been on. The fresh guava juice was my favorite. The coffee was okay. We ordered a cappuccino one morning and it tasted like it came from a convenience store machine. We stuck with regular coffee after that. It was very, very windy when we were there, so didn't spend much time on the beach or by the pool. We were very happy with our choice.More



This Riu has the best food of all the Rius I've been to. As the Riu chain goes, this has the same feel but the location is fantastic. Very close to shopping in town. Literally walking distance. A small "mall" is right across the street. The beach view is great. while in the water you have to watch your step as there are small holes and rocks to step on. The water is clear enough so just look down as you wade through the water. If you go to Cancun in the summer months be prepared to melt. Yes it gets that hot. It's fine and dandy if you sit in the pool or stay in the ocean but don't even try to lay out for a tan or walk around town. Riu does it again. Great job guys!More

My husband and I along with my parents stayed at this hotel for 14 days. The food at the buffet was always good. If you can't find some sort of food to suite you taste buds then you have a serious problem. I do agree the dinner reservation system is a little out of date. But this is the way it's done at all the Riu properties I have stayed at. My only real complaint is the quality of the alcohol. Some of the bar staff don't seem to be able to make a decent Margarita. Using mass produced mixes etc. The bar staff make promises like we will send you a bottle of champagne to your room etc. But you know they don't probably have the ability to make that happen. So I found that annoying. In the buffet dinning room margarine from New Zealand was used, we asked for butter daily and it wasn't until the last of our 14 days that butter appeared. Those are my only complaints, everything else was great. More

Not bad for the price

I visited this resort a few years back for a vacation. The price was reasonable for this resort. The rooms were nice, but the hotel had a musty smell to it. The beach was nice but very small. The entertainment was just okay.. Not too exciting. The service at this resort was very good and the food was good. Overall, a pretty good choice for the price More
