I have just returned from a week at RPLA. This is my experience: 1. Check in: Easy. The front desk was very helpful and quick. Be aware that almost all of the Cancun Hotels have a 3 PM check in, no matter what time your flight arrives. 2. Rooms: They smell musty. Otherwise average. I understand the hotel is getting... More

This was my first time going to a resort where you can walk right out into the city and walk around at night and go sight seeing. It was a great experience normally I go to closed resorts where they are in the middle of no where. The beach was amazing, food was good, service was really good as well.... More

Let me start by saying, we haven’t been to a ton of all-inclusive resorts. We’ve been to Sandals Ocho Rios, Excellence Playa Mujeres, Excellence Punta Cana, Iberostar Montego Bay and now here at the Riu. The Riu is absolutely NOT on par with the other resorts. It’s our own fault for thinking we could get remotely the same experience for... More

I stayed her march 31-6 April. We had an amazing stay! The accommodation was perfect, food was fab and the staff were beyond amazing. We spent a mix of our time between the pool and beach! The views from either are jus breath taking. There is an area above the buffet called solarium, lots of beds, constant sun and a... More

I would give our stay 4.5 stars. RPLA is located approximately 25-30 minutes from Cancun Airport and at the tip of the "7" of the hotel zone. It is a 7-10 minute walk from Downtown where Coco Bongo, etc. are located. I'm a little confused as to the "dated" comments from all the other reviewers -- Riu Palace hotels use... More

We've just returned from a week at the Riu Palace Las Americas in Cancun and couldn't be happier with the resort and its amenities. When reading other reviews I always wonder what more a visitor could ask for from a hotel and its staff that isn't provided at the Riu Palace Las Americas since from check and througout our stay...

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks in January 2014. I booked this as a surprise 40th Birthday celebration for my husband and emailed the hotel in advance to organise a few things like dinner on the first evening, champagne and balloons in the room etc. This was our third visit with our last one being in 2007...

We spent the week here over Valentine's Day and had an amazing time. The food was fantastic and plentiful. The buffet was superb and a huge variety. The service was exceptional throughout the resort, but the wait staff in the buffet restaurant went above and beyond every day. The bar staff was awesome!
