Amazing time at Rui Palace

Everything was amazing from the moment we walked in the hotel. Very nice staff. Beautiful scenery. Food was delicious. Would definitely reccomend staying here.

Great Adults only in Cancun

Great vacation and value at this resort. Only complaint is the thermostats are governed and the room would not go cooler than 72 degrees (22 Celsius). Hard to sleep well with humidity as high as it gets in August and room will not get any cooler. I saw other reviews with the same complaint so I know it wasn't just a bad thermostat in that room.The bed wasn't very comfortable either, so the all around room comfort was poor, and we had an upgraded room too. Other than that, the resort is beautiful, the food was good, and the service was great. I would give 5 palms if they would let you get the room cooler and get a more comfortable mattress!!!

Unfortunately Disappointed

Four friends and I stayed at the resort for 4 days in late July. I had high hopes for our stay but was definitely disappointed. Pros: Requested adjoining rooms before stay and after a little convincing at the front desk was able to have this, the beach was nice (beware of the rocks), Breakfast buffet, acees to sister resort with night club la pacha Cons: Other than breakfast our group was not thrilled about the food. The buffet has a lot of options, but none of them are great. We also went out to dinner to several of the restaurants on-site and were extremely disappointed. The food just did not taste fresh or even medium-quality. Chewy steak, the veggies tasted old,other stale food, etc. Also, all 5 members of our group got sick on the way home or immeidately after returning home. We were diligent about not consuming the water (bottled water to brush our teeth, etc.) and still all of us got sick. Apparently, they don't use filtered water to wash the fruit or for ice in drinks so stick to beer. Also, beware of charges they try to add on to your room. When checking out, they said we "ruined" a towel, but we had no recollection of staining or improperly using any towels. After several conversations with various employees we requested to see the towel and speak with a manager. Neither of those things happened and they let us go without charging us, but it was a good 45 minute ordeal when we were trying to leave and catch our bus for the airport. Overall, I would not recommend this resort. I think you can spend a little extra and have it go a long way. Our group was not satisfied.

My Best International Vacation Yet

The resort was absolutely beautiful! It was modern very clean and inviting from the time we walked through the front doors. The guest services representatives greeted us with a smile, answered all of our questions and also gave each of us a glass of champagne while we checked in. While we went to the a couple of the restaurants, we enjoyed the Buffet the best. There were alot of different meal selections and the fresh fruit was the best! It would be nice if Beef could be added to the breakfast menu however because not everyone eats pork. The pool and beach area was absolutely breathtaking! From the infinity pools and water sports to clear ocean water and prestine sands.. I wouldn't change a thing. I will definitely be coming back to the Riu Palace Las Americas resort

What's to Love

Newly renovated in 2016, all-inclusive everything and no reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

You're a seashell's throw away from the Cancun Hotel Zone's awesome - shops, eats and clubs.

The massages at the Renova Spa. They squeeze every ounce of stress out of you.

The free scuba lesson in the pool. Dive in. It'll be a blast.

The Jacuzzi in one of the pools and the swim-up bar. Plenty of ways you can make a splash.

The resort feels like a huge Spanish castle, and this is perfect. Here, you're beach royalty.

At Los Arcos, you can get both Italian and Brazilian tapas. Delish.


What We'd Change

While the beach isn't large, there's still plenty of places to work on your tan and enjoy your own stretch of Cancun's finest beaches.


Why You Should Go

It's just 12.5 miles from the airport so get ready to get your vacay on. Soon.

You have access to Riu Caribe & Riu Cancun - kinda like you get three resorts in one.

Karaoke happens at night so rest your pipes and get ready to serenade your adoring fans.

Release your inner adventurer and go windsurfing, canoeing and snorkeling.

Mayan ruins are near - the pyramids of Kukulhan in Chechen Itza. Bring some sturdy shoes.

You can rent a scooter/moped and tour all the epic beachiness of Cancun that's around you.
