    Wonderful vacation!

    This was our first time at Riu and it was an amazing experience. The views from our room were breathtaking. It was close enough to walk downtown. Customer service was amazing; always willing to help and serve. The night show's were spectacular. I loved the option of either pool. If you wanted to sit and just relax or if you wanted to be a the party pool; both were wonderful. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

    B-E-A-UTIFUL!

    The property is absolutely gorgeous. Our room was an ocean view and it was truly breath-taking. The property is immaculate and the service is outstanding. The bed and room were comfortable. Some of the food was just OK, but there is plenty and the alcohol flows freely...maybe a little too freely! That being said, we have no complaints, but more plug-ins in the rooms would be helpful.

    Great place to relax and feel taken care of

    I loved staying at Riu Palace Las Americas. From the moment I arrived I was greeted with warm smiles and even a cold glass of champagne. The hotel was amazing at every aspect of hospitality, from the front desk, servers, cooks, and maids. I was overly impressed with the hotel's overall focus on taking care of their guest. The pool is amazing and the drinks are even better. The all adults was also perfect for someone traveling alone. Loved every minute of it and will definitely recommend to my amigos!!

    Amazing

    Stay May 2-7, 2019. You could not ask for a more clean hotel. No matter the time of the day staff was always cleaning inside and outside. The pools were crystal clear. The scent in the main lobby was extremely relaxing and made you feel as if you were in Paradise. When you can to the main lobby in the morning there were at least 20 to 25 employees cleaning the lobby from the ceiling to the floors and they were so happy. The staff all over the resort were extremely AMAZING!
