    If you want to get happy!

    From the shuttle from the airport to the daily bbq by the pool every one smiling coffee bar pool side and oceanfront drink service awesome!!!! The view from my balcony was my favorite part to enjoy my coffee every morning and relaxing at night. The wasn’t into the nighttime activities, CBS was the only channel that was on tv that liked. The food was beautifully presented and plentiful with 3 other restaurants to try. I enjoyed the steak house and the Mexican restaurant! The buffet has everything imaginable.

    Most Amazing Getaway

    Our Stay at Riu Palace Las America was truly unforgettable. From the moment we arrived, we were captivated by the hotel's stunning beauty and elegant design. The service was exceptional, with every staff member going above and beyond to make our stay special. Our jacuzzi suite was the epitome of romance, offering a private sanctuary with luxurious amenities. It was the perfe3ct getaway for us, and we felt pampered every step of the way. We can't wait to return and relive this incredible experience again and again.

    Very disappointing

    The resort is gorgeous and the employees are amazing but that is where the nice stops. The rooms are mediocre even with a suite upgrade , the food is the worst I have ever had. The room service is on the same caliber as gas station food and limited . The drinks were so so and either watered down and sugary sweet or so strong you can’t drink them . There is no in between. The amenities are not that great either. I starved half the time due to the horrible food and slept horribly on the thin rock hard mattress. The live entertainment is bland and boring. Do yourself a favor and pay more to get better quality. This was our first experience with the RIU line of resorts and ultimately was very disappointed in its lack of quality. I would venture to say it’s more a 3 star resort than 4-5.

    Best holiday ever

    Just got home from an unforgettable week. I couldn't find a single fault with our stay. The staff was amazing. The place was constantly being cleaned. The food was excellent. The room was large and always restocked with refreshments in the fridge. To top it all off, the pools and beach were stunning. And all the other guests we met were beautiful people. I can't thank the Riu group enough for making our week one we will never forget.❤️
