Riu Palace Las Americas


Email | Share |
All Inclusive    

Please note that the resort will be closed for renovations from August 22, 2016 - October 21, 2016. As of October 22, 2016, RIU Palace Las Americas will be an Adults only hotel.

Just steps from the shops and nightlife in Cancun, Riu Palace Las Americas is the perfect place for an all-inclusive Cancun vacation. Step into a lobby that is beyond extravagant, with great columns rising to hand-painted domes in gold leaf and floral designs, a stained glass ceiling, Edwardian furniture in rich satin and extraordinary chandeliers.

All amenities are offered for the first-class traveler: a spa with a rooftop solarium and Jacuzzi, a lavish nightclub with live shows and entertainment, and high-end suites with luxurious furnishings. An infinity pool appears to flow into the turquoise sea framing a white sand beach. Activities include table tennis, volleyball, windsurfing, snorkeling, and more.

Hailed for excellent dining, there is a selection of five a la carte or grand buffet restaurants. Recently revamped menus now offer a wide range of cuisine and finer ingredients at the a la carte restaurants, as well as the incorporation of a vegetarian menu in all restaurants. Fine cuisine is served at Los Arcos Italian restaurant, Sakura Japanese restaurant, Tio Pepe Mexican restaurant, Krystal Fusion restaurant, and a Grill and steakhouse. Domestic and imported drinks are served 24-hours a day and the mini-bar and liquor dispenser in the rooms are restocked regularly.

Beautiful Resort
BeachgirlstuckinKS, Wichita, Kansas

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!

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.

We arrived in cancun on 10th January 2017 and are still here at present time we booked a 4 star hotel Rui caribe and spent a few days there to which we had no complaints at all food was good staff were very friendly and then we saw a sign for a free upgrade by the lift so we enquired about this and a day later on the 15th Jan we moved to this 5star hotel which is just fantastic very plush , friendly staff , I just wish we were staying here longer than the 11 nights booked we will be coming back here without a shadow of a doubt .
