    Family 60th birthday with our grown children

    I absolutely love the Riu Palace Las Americas. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. They are always cleaning it. I can’t say enough good things about the food. The buffet is one of the best we have had at any all inclusive. The 5 restaurants are superior to other all inclusive i have visited. You actually feel like you’re out to dinner at a nice restaurant. I love the beach and oceanfront. Great to get an ocean swim in.

    Amazing Resort

    We stayed in January 2023. The resort was amazing. Beautiful beach and excellent customer service. Our pool waiter Enrique was so personable. Teresa who did our room was so sweet. The food was fantastic. Thomas from Black and White did an outstanding job. Hope to see you again soon. Like our second home now. Pros: food , beach customer service, staff, pools Cons: need more beach restrooms, more plugs and chargers in rooms. Thank your team for our wonderful stay! They do an incredible job.

    Amazing resort with excellent service

    We recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at the Riu Palace Las Americas and it was fantastic! The level of service was some of the best I've experienced. The moment we walked through the doors our luggage was taken and we were offered drinks while we waited to check in. Our room was on the first floor with a gorgeous ocean view and I was concerned it might be too noisy being right above the pools but it was never an issue. We added the romantic beach dinner which was actually in the pool gazebo next to the beach, a blessing because it was somewhat windy that night. We were also really impressed with the quality of the food. We've often found that all-inclusive resorts cut corners here but we had steak and/or lobster multiple times and it was all delicious. I would say the only negative was dinner our last night at the Mexican restaurant at the resort. That meal was mediocre which a little disappointing. Otherwise, we would gladly return to this hotel again and again.
