Long and short of it, WOULD DEFINITELY GO BACK!!! I really had a great experience at Riu Palace Las Americas. I will recommend it to all my friends. A few people said it needed to be updated and I disagree. I loved the old world charm of it. I was talking to a lot of people that had stayed next... More

Clean, relaxing, beautiful pool area, and excellent service in the restaurants! Buffet was more than enough and we enjoyed the specialty restaurants. We have stayed at several Riu resorts in the past and, as always, this was a great value!

My heart is just full of happiness and gratitude to all of the employees that make this hotel what it is. First time I stayed as a couple--third floor overlooking the private hot tub, room and beautiful was wonderful. This time I took my daughter to celebrate her 32nd birthday. When the hotel learned of her birthday they went above... More

I was bothered by the mold/mildew present throughout the property. As soon as you walk in the front door you can smell it. Hotel is beautiful looking, but in desperate need of a complete makeover! I spoke with several others also having a problem staying there and were also going to leave the hotel. The room I was in was... More

Good food plenty of choice. Good variety of brand drinks. Very large rooms and bathrooms. The service is excellent from the dining rooms, the bar, the sun loungers, pools and beach, they come round all the time offering drinks. The entertainment which started at 9.45 was good most nights and the chairs very comfortable. two big pools one of which... More

Having been to a lot of nice "All Inclusive " properties in Cancun/Playa, Las Americas is average for the star rating they give themselves. Musty smells throughout the hotel as well as average food and medium shelf liquor are why I mainly rated this hotel as average. The steak house served steak and lobster but as separate entrees but not... More

TERRIBLE BEDS. Our "KING" size bed.... was two smaller beds pushed together, unacceptable. However everything else about the Riu was exceptionally great! The food, staff, pools, beach, and location were perfect.

We have come to the Cancun/Playa area twice this year. In June, we stayed in Playa del Carmen, so we thought we'd stay in Cancun this time. The staff has been wonderful and very attentive. Julio, one of the bartenders in the lobby bar deserves the highest praise, he's AMAZING!!! Yay Julio!!! I've read some other reviews which mentioned a... More

The hotel is beautiful. The drinks at the bar are delicious, Julio the bartender was awesome. Those were the only two great things here. The food is less than average. The Mexican themed restaurant is an insult to Mexican food, absolutely horrible. Our vacation is all-inclusive but we've eaten out a lot. The pool area has a sewage smell so... More

I have stopped counting the times we have made the journey to the RIU PALACE LAS AMERICAS .... just returned and it was, as always, like going home. Wonderful to see so many of the same staff year after year as they have become family to us. To Jack, Vanessa, Julian, Wilbert, Alex, Uzi and the rest of the gang,... More
