“The Riu Palace Las Americas is in a league of its own as far as hotels and holiday experiences go. I’ve highly recommended this place to many friends and family, as well as eagerly awaiting to go back a third time later this month. I don’t see what more people could wish for. The Riu Palace Las Americas has incredible food (variety and standard), entertainment, staff across all areas, location, cleanliness and atmosphere. I’ve been no where else in the world quite like it. Don’t hesitate to book up!” – Rikki M 3/19
“We decided to go to Cancun to celebrate my 30th birthday. We originally booked at the RIU Caribe. When we arrived they told us we had a free upgrade to the RIU Los Americas. We took it because they enticed us with it being adults only. We had the best time at this resort!! Don’t regret switching. In fact, when we go back we will stay at this same adults only resort. It was walking distance to the nightlife in Cancun and the service and workers at this resort went above and beyond. No complaints! We also met two other couples that will hopefully be life long friends. Already trying to plan a visit to see each other!” – Lisa P. 7/17
