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.

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.

A Nice Place To Stay In Cancun
JP40, Pikesville, Maryland

On January 13, 2016; we landed at Cancun International Airport. The weather was rainy and warm. We had pre-booked a ride to the property. I would suggest that. Taking a cab there would probably cost a whole lot more. We booked Riu Palace Las Americas. The ride from the airport was very long. Driving here would be a problem. They drive very fast and the road signs are in mostly Spanish. As we approached the property the white building stood out very bright. Looking almost like a wedding cake. Right at the beginning exiting the bus. The staff there was very helpful. We were directed to the front desk and our bags were tagged to be taken to our room. We were given wrist bands and information on how to navigate the property. Our room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was clean and there were double sinks. The room was in the middle of the horseshoe shape property. So our view was directly over the main pool and the back drop was the Caribbean Sea. There was nice size mini fridge with beer, water, and sodaโ€™s restocked every day. There is a liquor dispenser also in the room holding tequila, brandy, rum, and vodka. The room had a sitting area away the bed with a flat screen TV, couch and coffee table. The bed was supposed to be a king. Instead two full size beds were put together to form a king. Problem was that the bed would separate in the middle. Also each bed was made up separately creating a problem if you wanted to sleep together. There was no TV in front of the beds. So watching TV in bed was a problem. The property is all inclusive. There are several places to eat on the property each with different flavorโ€™s and decors. The food was very good. There is something there to eat for everyone taste. The drinks were strong and good also. The staff throughout the property was always smiling and extremely helpful for any occasion. The grounds were kept up and the beach area was clean everyday of debris. The location is in a shopping district so finding whatever is on your list is within walking distance. There are many entertainment/restaurants venues near also. Onsite there is an excellent Theater troupe. Their shows performance was golden. The property is in need of some renovation and painting. We were able to visit the sister property right next door. So went over for some drinks and snacks. The dรฉcor there was more modern. More>

Twice is Nice

This is our second visit to this Hotel. The old girl is starting to show some wear and tear but never the less it's still one of our favorite places to stay in Cancun. Our room is standard for Cancun, with an awesome view. Only dislike is the bed, way too firm for our liking. They say in real estate it's all about location. This place has it and then some. It's about 3 blocks from the nightlife and 2 blocks from the ferry for Isla Mujeres. It's a short bus ride to the major shopping plazas. The beach is on the bay side so the water is much calmer, great for snorkeling. For anyone wondering, there is some seaweed but minimal compared to last year. The pools aren't massive but compared to some other resorts this place is quaint. There are plenty of activities to keep you entertained. The staff does a great job and are very helpful. Shout out to Abu in the piano bar, he makes the best Margaritas. Everyone made us feel welcome. The shows are pretty standard fare. The food is good to great depending on what you eat. Breakfast was consistently good. Lunch was really good, the choices were great. Dinner buffet was good. The restaurants were really good also. The steak house was our favorite(who doesn't love steak and lobster), the Japanese place was our least favorite. Overall it's our home away from home in Cancun. More>

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 ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿป๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜Ÿ 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>

VERY NICE RIU

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>
