“All Junior-Suite All-Inclusive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

Riu Palace Las Americas is a family-friendly all junior-suite all-inclusive resort located just to the west of the Fiesta Americana and Dreams Cancun resorts (i.e., it is on the top leg of the "7" and faces calmer waters.) If you can afford to splurge, stay in one of the ocean front corner rooms. They have great amenities.

Think twice before you decide to have your destination wedding at Riu Las Americas. A few years ago I had clients who chose the Riu Palace Las Americas for their destination wedding. I suspected trouble when the on-site wedding coordinator kept being changed. Thank goodness my clients took my advice and got legally wed in the US and only went to the Riu Palace Las Americas with family and friends to have a symbolic ceremony. The wedding coordinator failed to book an officiant for the wedding; that would have been disastrous if they'd actually needed one to officiate at their wedding there. A guest did the honors so all went well. The couple were satisfied with the rest of the arrangements (flowers, reception, etc). But a glitch like that is not the sort of thing you want to have happen at your destination wedding.

Room Tip: Book one of the corner oceanfront suites.

Not a 5 star resort- maybe 3. Pros: Very clean, beautiful resort, drinks were good, location was good. Cons: Beds were hard, we even had a mattress topper put on but still very hard. Food was average but I will say the Japanese restaurant was by far the best, this was actually the first time I think I lost weight on vacation instead of gaining a few pounds. The biggest con was the water in the bathroom. The faucet water and the shower stunk like raw sewage- they tell you not to drink the water out of the faucet and I see why. I highly recommend brushing your teeth with bottled water. I had to hold my breath when taking a shower and never felt clean no matter how much soap I used.

We stayed at the Riu April 15-20, 2012. I did read all the reviews, it sounded good. We had a Junior Suite Ocean View, it was beautiful! Our room was clean and maid service was incredible! Everyone was very friendly! The food was excellent, except our one dinner at the steak house. I ordered my steak rare, it came well done, sent it back and was still well done. That is my only complaint. The beach was awesome and the drinks were too! Got a massage and it was beyond belief! Overall for our first all-inclusive vacation we LOVED the Riu!

Room Tip: Third floor ocean view was awesome!

Went with a group of 22 to the Riu Palace Las Americas Cancun Mexico in April 2012. Everybody had a
great trip and said they thought this resort was top notch. The food was good and had a huge selection in the buffets and that the resort staff would make sure you where taken care of by bringing drinks out on to the beach and to your chair by the pool. The place was kept spotless there was always cleaning and polishing going on where ever you looked. The only low point I heard was most of the group thought the beds where to hard , All said that they would come back to this resort again.

Room Tip: Try and get the ocean view rooms! The view is worth it.

We went to celebrate our 5th anniversary with another couple and we provided a suite upgrade on our check in (we had mentioned that we had been to this resort a couple of years ago and loved it so much that we wanted to celebrate our 5th and we got the upgrade!) - what a way to start the vacation.

The staff everywhere: front desk, cleaning staff, entertainment, bartenders were all very friendly. The service was fantastic.

The food was good, i thought the breakfast and lunch buffet options were plentiful and mostly delicious as we tried new foods (mussels) that we'd not ever try at a normal restaurant. Krystal was the best of the restaurant choices, the Brazilian restaurant was probably the weakest, but we still enjoyed the experience. One downfall is that after a week, the food does get a bit repetitive.

The beach was in great shape, and the water was awesome for swimming.

Some nit picky type items: some of the furniture looks worn, some rugs also shored a bit of wear. I suppose these items might bother some for a so called 5-star resort, but it did not effect our enjoyment whatsoever.

Overall, our room was great, it was cleaned and the maid service was always prompt and thorough. An amazing experience!

Room Tip: Ocean view is great, however, the city view isn't bad either if you like to people watch some of...
