U.S. News Review

Not to be confused with its sister property, Hotel Riu Palace Peninsula, Riu Palace Las Americas sits between the sparkling blue Caribbean and the calm waters of Nichupte Lagoon on the northern bend of Cancún's Hotel Zone. This all-inclusive resort's 372 suites are appointed with flat-screen satellite TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi and separate living areas. If your room doesn't feature an ocean view (though most afford excellent views), you can always gaze at the sea from a prime spot on the beach. But, since guests say Riu's swath of sand is a little small, so you'll want to lay claim to sandy real estate before it's all occupied. On the beach, you'll have access to snorkeling and windsurfing equipment, and you can schedule an introductory scuba lesson in the pool. When hunger strikes, you can take advantage of 24-hour-a-day snacks, buffet stations and five restaurants, all included in your package's cost. However, some guests do lament that Riu's food lacks variety, so you may want to wander off the property grounds for a few meals.
