How it Ranks: Riu Palace Las Americas ranks #21 out of 465 Cancun Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews.
Our Take: 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 in rich red hues and furnished with liquor dispensers, flat-screen satellite TVs and separate living areas. If your room doesn't feature an ocean view (which most do), you can always gaze at the sea from your 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 and five restaurants, all included in your package's cost. However, some guests do complain that Riu's food lacks variety, so you may want to wander off-resort for a few meals.
