Things to Know

  • Maximize your vacay hours by checking pick-up times on scheduled transfers.
Located in the heart of the Cancun Hotel Zone Riu Palace Las Americas has it all. At this all-inclusive resort, you’re walking distance from shopping, nosh spots and nightlife, with Caracol Beach nearby for daytime relaxation. Another perk? The resort is adults-only.

All-inclusive means a stress-free getaway: drinks, food and activities are all included in the price of your vacay! After enjoying the hotel zone, rest up for nighttime karaoke where you can channel your inner rock star. Relax in your room and order 24-hour room service or dine at one of the resort’s delicious restaurants with specialty dishes. Since you’re in the heart of Cancun, go for an excursion to the pyramids of Kukulkán in Chichen Itzá or the turtle conservation center on Isla Mujeres for an adventure. At Riu Palace Las Americas you won’t have to worry about planning your time away. Your only responsibility is to show up and have fun.

    Do Not Stay Here. Not clean and bad customer service.

    I stayed here for 3 nights on a girls trip with some friends and we had a very frustrating experience. Starting from check in, when they did not have the type of rooms available we had booked online they then argued with us for over an hour about it. The poor customer service continued when we found MOLD in our room and the front desk were apathetic and rude about it, saying it was our fault for not telling them earlier in our stay. The sheets in our room on arrival were dirty and there was hair in our shower that was not ours when we arrived. The lobby, inside bar, and rooms had disgusting musty mildew smells. There was vomit floating in the pool and when we reported it they said they said it was sunblock and refused to clean the pool unless they see someone actually vomit. The food was terrible and made us all sick, and it was difficult to even get a waiters attention for a glass of water at any of the seated meals. I have stayed in Rius before and loved them, so I am not sure what is going on here but please save yourself the frustration and stay elsewhere.

    I love it !!!

    Our vacation was excellent. Started from check in to check out. Room was located on 8th floor was big with ocean view. The housekeeper kept our room clean and cozy. Food is very good, buffet is amassing, and the specialty restaurants are good. I never liked going to the buffet but this resort had an outstanding buffet. Nobody was fighting for beach umbrellas nor beach and pool chairs. Entertainment teams work so hard.Thank you all workers who made our vacation so amazing!!! We will definitely come back. See you soon!!!
