Our group of 3 couples stayed at the Riu Palace Las Americas and could not have been more pleased!!! We travel to Cancun at least once a year and enjoy to stay at different resorts. We have stayed at many, Secrets- Dreams- Omni- Fiesta Americana- Me--- and at the Riveria Maya as well and it topped all of the others.... More

Exceeded our expectations. Staff is awesome as is the food. Top notch accommodations! The only thing we can say that is negative is that the mattresses were fairly hard. Entertainment staff is fun and hilarious! Never a dull moment. 9.9999 out of 10!

Stayed 2-23-15 through 2-26-15. Everything about the place was excellent. We had junior ocean view suites on 1st floor. The rooms were clean and we had no problems. What struck me as exceptional about this place is the customer service. The employees all went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Their enthusiasm seemed very genuine. The buffets... More

I just don't understand how this place can get so many positive reviews. Stayed Feb 21 - 28 2015 after reading all these great reviews. We arrived at 2am after Sunwing's notorious late flight to a room that smelled with two twin beds pushed together. Are you kidding me!!! A supposed 5 star hotel with two beds pushed together. Went...

This is our second Riu. We stayed at one in Aruba a couple of years ago, so we thought we'd try this one in Cancun. There are three Riu's in Cancun, all within walking distance of each other, and you can visit and use their facilities at no extra charge. This place was immaculate. There was always someone sweeping, dusting,... More

This place was awesome! Clean, quick check in, friendly staff, great food! ( Thanks Adrian and Yardi for the great service at the Italian restaurant) The food was great! The only thing we didn't like was eating at the restaurants , the food was good, but it had the rush, rush feeling. This is because you need to have reservation... More

There are two Riu properties side by side, Palace Las Americas & Cancun. I liked the moorish design of the Palace or the Ikea look of Riu Cancun. The water has an odour at the Palace and there wasn't a single dish that was good at any specialty restaurants and that was the consensus of any guests we talked to.... More

Stayed 2/15-2/20 after staying in Playacar at Riu Palace Rivera Maya for 5 days previous. Stayed 5 days with a group of 11 and had an awesome time. The food was awesome at all the specialty restaurants and the buffets. Didn't get to try the Japanese restaurant. The staff was great and very attentive. The bed was better at this... More

So I'll try to keep this short. Check in was great, no problem. And at first glance this property looks amazing. The views are breathtaking . The staff are great. With a few exceptions.our room on the 6th floor, was dated and smelled of sewer. The bathtub is odd and in my medical opinion a hazard for anyone stepping in,... More
