What We Love

  • Enjoy a free scuba lesson in the pool. 
  • At Los Arcos, you can get both Italian and Brazilian tapas.

Things to Know

  • You have access to the great amenities at nearby sister resorts.
  • Gaze in awe at the pyramids of Kukulhan in Chechen Itza. Bring some sturdy shoes.
  • 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.

    Good hotel

    Everything was all right just one thing the room was not ready at arrival so we had to phone the reception but they do it fast so... Near the hotspots, great. Food is typical resort food, you wont go hungry. Go to the buffet. It’s very good . After dinner get the coconut ice cream in the buffet. Even if you don’t eat there. Just walk in and get it. It looks like vanilla but it’s coconut and amazing. BBQ on the beach... The staff very helpful. Good vacation.

    Amazing

    Great hotel the overall layout of resort was amazing and staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were well kept and clean. Loved the coffee bar and food at the buffet was good. We weren’t able to make all restaurants as they were booked but ate mainly at buffet which staff were awesome friendly and attentive. We will definitely go back to the Rui resort as it was an amazing experience.

    Paradise

    We have stayed here 4 times, 3 times as a couple and 1 time with a larger group. This is a wonderful hotel with a great beach. We have been all over the Caribbean and keep coming back here. There is good snorkeling off the beach just to the north of the hotel. We have seen a very large stingray, cuttlefish, barracuda, triggerfish, starfish, etc. We really appreciate the staff like Abu, Lino, Ulysses, Felipe and especially Ernesto. Be sure to enjoy the sister hotels for free. The hotel next door has kids and a little more wild nightlife like La Pacha- a dance club. We always take a $1 bus ride to the Riu Peninsula and have a great time there as well. Small Mayan ruins are on the grounds. Right next to this sister hotel is the ferry terminal to get to Isla Mujeres. On the Isla we rented a golf cart and had a great time riding around, snorkeling, eating, and listening to a great cover band for free at The Joint. It has shopping across the street and is a very short walk to Coco Bongo and Senor Frogs and other nightlife. The food is the best of all the places we have stayed. Be sure to get go to the outdoor barbecue on Wed and Sat, and everyone has a lot of fun at the silent dance party. We love this place.
