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.

Enjoying our stay

We are still in the hotel coming near the end of our 2nd week. I thought I would post this now in case someone has a question that I can find the answer for before I leave. Firstly I don't see this as 5* Hotel, having been in lots of truly 5* hotels in the UAE this doesn't quite measure up to that standard. I know each country has differences etc but that's my expectations are set high. However, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The food and drink are really good and the waiters at the bars/pool etc have all been excellent. There is good entertainment at the pool throughout the day and a very friendly and welcoming feel around the area. The big pool is quieter if you want to relax. Room is spacious and clean, mini bar stocked each day and fresh towels etc There are only a few cons that is worth mentioning - the night time entertainment is really woeful and the Al a Carte choices were a let down with under or over cooked steaks. The hotel has that traditional Mexican theme but borderline shaby, I understand there is a refurbishment pending so I will keep an eye on the upgrade before deciding whether to come back next year. All in though, I will keep an More>

Great weekend!

Really nice place for couples, quiet spots and great beach. Good food and drinks! If you want more noise and young people, you can go next door to Riu Cancún for The day. Very close to the nightlife area. More>

Still a great Hotel

Paradise! 🌴

The hotel itself is beautiful, it's next door to the Riu Cancun which is more 18-30s hotel, this is more quieter/older adults. Your wristband lets you get into next door though. The buffet is gorgeous and if you come this far you need to visit the Steak restaurant. We tipped in the restaurants and around the pool/in the buffet, they workers here work SO hard to accommodate for your every need, felt so welcomed and had the holiday of a life time! It was paradise, beautiful surroundings, the pools are lively next door with games happening all day. If I come back I'd stay next door though as its livelier but couldn't fault this hotel at all!

Great Vacation!

Traveled down to Cancun with about 35 friends and all of the staff treated us like Family! Upon arrival I was told there were no rooms available since we were a couple hours early for check-in. After speaking to another one of the reception guys he shifted some things around and got us a room, thumbs up! Room was good size with separate seating area, spacious balcony and amazing view. It did tend to be humid and one thing I found strange was that the double beds are together, no space between them. We spent most of our time at the pool bar, big thanks to Julian, Ivan,Ernesto and specially Fortunato they are simply the best bartenders and made our vacation a remarkable one! The entertainment team was also amazing, they accompanied a group from the hotel at night to The City and made sure we had a good time and were being attended well, I believe one of the guys name was Beto I forgot the others but they were amazing people. We didn't get to make any reservations to the hotel restaurants since they had to be made 1 day prior, one suggestion would be to change up the Buffett Selection from time to time, it got boring after a couple of days. We also visited the Riu Cancun next door, it's a modern facility and seemed like attracts more of a younger crowd. They have a 24 hour bar you can visit once Riu palace bars close down. Overall it was a great stay, we are already missing the pool bar and it's only been 2 days. More>
