Alabama Anniversary

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

My Husband and I had a fantastic time at this Resort! This was our 3rd time to Cancun but our 1st to the Riu Palace. This is the BEST Resort we have stayed at by far. Jessica at the front desk is the best. She gave us a wonderful room with a panaramic view of the ocean. Elizabeth cleaned our room (316) and I wish she could have come home with us.
The Entertainment Staff was fun and be sure to join in!! Food was better here than at the other resorts we've stayed at in the past and plenty to drink. I've read the reviews about the smell and it wasn't that bad, your going to have that at "most" places on the beach...hello!!!
One review said they had a billfold stolen so take advantage of the in room safe. You do need to rise early to get your towel down but that's been the "norm" at all of the Resorts we've stayed at. We will come back here again and hopefully bring family and friends.

Loved the Riu Palace Las Americas!

They say first impressions count...Well, upon arriving our luggage was taken from us and delivered to our room, we were served a free cocktail and, as it was our honeymoon, we were upgraded to a suite free of charge! What more could you ask for?!

The suite consited of a huge bed and sofa and tv area which led out to a balcony, a walk in wardrobe, a bathroom with separate bath, shower and 2 sinks and a second tv area with couch, mini bar and optics which were filled up with free spirits daily.

We were all inclusive which meant we had the option of either turning up to the huge buffet any time we liked or pre-booking one of the several top notch restaurants which included tapas, japanese, brazillian, gourmet and steakhouse. The service in all the restaurants was consistently good and the food in the restaurants was outstanding. I always looked forward to my meals and never felt the need to venture out of the hotel for something to eat.

There's 2 pool areas, one with a walk up pool bar which was often quite lively or a more sedate pool which was surrounded by only a few double loungers, perfect for those on a romantic break. The private beach area was also very nice, sometimes quite busy but never overcrowded. There are constantly waiters in attendance who walk around the beach and pool areas and fetch you free drinks as and when required. I often felt quite guilty about this but there's no denying it was pure luxury!

At night there's a few bars within the hotel with barstaff who really did make our stay memorable. Again, you just can't fault the service. The hotel staff also put on a different show every night of the week which is an entertaining way to start off your night with a few free all inclusive drinks before venturing out onto the strip.

All in all, I love the Riu Palace Las Americas!

Riu Palace - All Inclusive

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Riu Palace Cancun is very nice. It is all inclusive which means you get your premium stocked bar and refrigerator. If you want a different kind a beer, don't worry, there plenty of little shops within a very short walking distance to find what you need.

The service is very good. The breakfast and lunch buffetts are great, however, I would recommend going off the resort for dinner. There a lot of very good restaurants in Cancun. I will list a few for you in my tips.

Children are welcome and they do offer a baby sitting service. There are two pools. The "quiet pool" and the "party pool".

Because we usually go in a large group, it is hard for me to give you a price range as far as our stay goes on most of these trips, but I will do my best.
