Fine cuisine is served at Los Arcos Italian restaurant, Sakura Japanese restaurant, Tio Pepe Mexican restaurant, Krystal Fusion restaurant, and a Grill and steakhouse.

We stayed at the Palace for a long weekend. The place is beautiful and very clean. My husband and I are first-time Apple users and Cancun visitors. Both were awesome! We felt like Apple took care of us from when one of their agents met us at our airport and checked us in, to while we were at the hotel, to when we left. The reps are so professional and so organized. The hotel is amazing! We hit the jackpot the first go-around. My hubby is in the food industry and he was blown away by the selection and presentation and taste. Can't say enough about the service. Hardest working people I have ever seen. Seriously, the servers were practically running from table to table, always with a smile on their face. Since this was our first vacation that wasn't camping in the U.S., we were nervous about it. But Apple was always there to answer questions. And the hotel -- can't say enough. We got the jr. ste. ocean front - beautiful!! Bathroom is huge and the fridge was always stocked with soda, water, etc. (I'm a big water drinker and that was a concern for me -- unnecessarily so. Water was easy to be had everywhere!) Some people talk about the rooms being humid. I think the AC did a very decent job, however, this is the tropics! What does one expect? I felt very comfortable in our room. We had bottles of liquor on tap IN OUR ROOM!! While we were there, a tropical storm had blown in, so we only saw the sun the day we arrived, for about five hours the entire time, and we still LOVED this place. I won't bother to mention all the wonderful workers by name bc everyone, and I mean everyone, was always greeting us with a smile on their face and an "Hola!" We brought a bunch of one-dollar bills to tip, so we did tip. I know some people don't, but these folks are so hard working, I wanted to tip. When it was time to leave, there was a mixup with the Apple driver and we had to end up taking a taxi. Dani, the Apple rep at the Palace, was great and tried to find out what was going on. In the meantime, we decided to take a taxi to the airport with another couple and we got there in plenty of time. When we did, there were Apple reps ready to greet us and took care of the driver's fare for us. Then the reps actually escorted us into the airport and got us checked in. We really felt like we had a friend with Apple. We will DEFINITELY be doing this again. Thanks Apple and thanks RIU!!!

I wish I knew in advance that the hotel was rehabbing the penthouse above me. The crew of 10+ people worked from 8:00am to after 7:00pm. After I was moved, I lost my ocean view that I paid for. Apple customer service very rude! My new room didn't have hot water. After I complained many times and waited 7 hours, maintenance fixed it!!

Great food, scenery and staff. Entertainment needs some help! Possibly two locations, a smaller bar instead of one for many guests; more variety we do not expect Karaoke on vacation.

Wonderful Escape
northbrookfarm, West Chester, Pennsylvania
Thu Jan 18 13:26:41 EST 2018
It all began with an adult only escape...when we arrived, we were met with champagne in a gorgeous lobby. We had a ocean view suite with a beautiful view of blue water from a balcony. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely awesome! Our favorite was the lobster tail and filet at the Black and White Steak House. We also participated in two yoga classes as well as enjoyed the evening shows with the enthusiastic staff members. My only recommendation came as a result of two cold days. We would have appreciated a hot tub and shuttle service to the other RIU resorts. Thank you TripGuy and especially Alissa Schemmer for taking care of every detail for our awesome escape.

Fantastic Hotel!

We just held our annual sales meeting for 70 people at this location and the hotel was perfect for us! The smaller property size was ideal for our group. We could easily find each other in the spacious lobby or on the beach in front of the hotel. The hotel was sparkling clean and the attendants straitened up our room twice a day. The buffets were excellent and the food was overall fantastic. The entire staff was friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend this hotel and I am in the hotel business! That is not something I have said often in my lifetime! Well done, Hotel Riu Palace Las Americas!

Annual trip did not disappoint

The lobby is beautiful, we were assigned room 645 wow it was fabulous overlooking the ocean and the pools. The food is great. Make sure to visit the itallian restaurant next to the coffee bar. Lunch was fabulous. We celebrated my husbands birthday in the steak house they brought him a cake and sang and the service was excellent. The pool was pretty cool for a southener but we did swim a little. The games and classes were fun and entertaining.The beds are not tempuppedic soft but okay. Sleeping with the sound of the ocean is well worth the harder bed. The ocean was beautiful and the swimming was fun too.You can walk to downtown and the stores which we loved. All of this was good, we were supposed to get a pick-up at the airport by Destination Services that did not show up and the airport personnel tried to swindle us so be careful and confirm your pick up the day before you go.

The Riu is a magnificent hotel...what a shame that it's going the wrong way...and on that issue, when we were at the Riu in Cancun, I spoke with the person in charge of the music...I explained that his choice of music was not pleasing to most Americans and Canadians...his choice music was just bad!...he changed the music...which made it a little nicer for everyone at the pool...

Great Resort!

My best friend and I went to this resort to celebrate our 40th birthdays. This was our first time in Cancun as well as first time at this Resort. The place is beautiful and is so well maintained and kept clean. We constantly saw staff cleaning floors,windows,tables. The food in all the restaurants was great. Tons of options and quantity. My favorite meal was at the Japanese restaurant.The bartenders were exceptional and super friendly. Housekeeping kept our room clean and stocked. I highly recommend an all inclusive resort like this one. The only things that were missing that I would suggest was a bathroom closer to the pool with the swim up bar, food service poolside and a nightclub/dance club on site.
