What grandeur! And true to Riu's style, another original which will have your head spinning just taking it all in. Magnificent , amazing - a stream of adjectives boasting the best in a Resort can be pinned on this beauty.
The location in prime Cancun, right in the heart of activity, steps from shops and night life. As an added dimension, the Riu Cancun is adjoining, and offers more facilities and exciting features; for guests at Riu Las Americas may enjoy the best of both Resorts.
Step into a lobby which is beyond extravagant, with great columns rising to hand-painted domes in gold leaf and floral designs, a stained glass ceiling, Edwardian furniture in rich satin, and extraordinary oil paintings. A veritable Cathedral a la glitz with sparkling chandeliers. Stately, but in deco-style with an explosion of colors.
The Riu Palace Las Americas Resort is in Moroccan-Mediterranean architecture, like a giant wedding cake set in Coral Gables, with chaise lounge chairs under canvas umbrellas between banks of hibiscus flowers. An infinity pool appears to flow into the turquoise sea framing a white sand beach. Hailed as one of the top Resorts for dining, there is a selection of five a la carte or grand buffet restaurants.
All amenities are offered for the first-class traveler, a Spa with a rooftop solarium and Jacuzzi, a lavish nightclub with live shows and entertainment, and high-end suites with luxurious furnishings. Truly exquisite!
Beachfront property located in Cancun's exclusive Caracol Beach. Steps away from shops and night life.
