We have stayed at this hotel a few times now, finally time to write a review! Location is fantastic - located right in the middle of "up town" and "downtown" ... Very easy to take a local his to where ever it is that you want to go! ... Hotel is a bit dated as per overall aesthetics including rooms!... More

Stayed at the Las Americas in October 2014 for 6 nights. Nothing but a fantastic experience from check in to check out. At check in we were greeted with a smile and a cocktail of our choice. We booked Junior Suite Oceanview and it did not disappoint. Room had plenty of space, beds were fine, bathroom more than adequate, and... More

I stayed for a week back in Oct 2014. I traveled to Cancun by myself and had a great experience at the RIU, The resort was great. Clean room, great facilities, the staff was ALWAYS friendly and most helpful. Beach is nice, great swimming area. There are no beach umbrellas (and I'm chalk-white) so when I did want to lay...

We stayed at the RIU palace Las Americas for seven days in January 2015 and we've been to Cancun four times before and I've stayed at a few hotels but the RIU Palace Las Americas is by far the complete package of comfort, décor, excitement, and luxury so far in my vacations to my favorite part of Mexico. The people... More

My wife and I celebrated our 30th last week. We did the Sunwing trip from Buffalo. We had a wonderful time. The hotel location was great. Across the street was a shopping mall including a Starbucks and a pharmacy. The area felt safe and folks were friendly. The hotel was as advertised. Meals were exceptional, both the buffets (with fresh... More

Three nights at this nice all inclusive hotel. The hotel itself was a colonial style and had an old world feel to it. Rooms and facilities were clean. Food was good for an all inclusive format. The one exception and the only aspect of the stay that was sub par was the reservations only Mexican restaurant. It was terrible. Ordered... More

Just got back from the RIU Las Americas in Cancun. Had a great time with a girlfriend. The staff was amazing. The hotel was beautiful. The food was great. Entertainment was entertaining. The only draw back was the way the sun set, we had to move our lounge chairs several times during the day to stay in the sun. Very... More

Third time in Cancun and second time staying in a RIU property (Bahamas being the other time). Hotel property is beautiful with a good location. The beach is great and you are able to take a morning walk down the beautiful Cancun beach just to look around, you will get tired before running out of things to look at. Hotel... More

Just back from a week at the Riu Palace and would have loved to have stayed longer. From the moment you enter the service is first class. Rooms are large and very clean. The buffet restaurant is excellent and the a la carte restaurants (Mexican, Italian, Steak, Japanese and Fusuion) are all first class. You have to book these a... More
