Riu Palace Las Americas

Riu Palace Las Americas Cancun

It’s a beautiful hotel, looks a bit like a wedding cake!

Cancun, on the Yucatan Peninsula, is probably one of the favourite destinations for those who love powdery white beaches and crystal clear waters lapping gently on the shore. The surrounding areas are absolutely beautiful too with the spectacular Mayan ruins nestled amongst tropical forests. This surely must be seen to be believed.

Nightlife in Cancun is of an international level. Eateries abound and range from local fare to top class bistros. For those who want to boogie the night away, one can certainly find an eclectic mix of salsa, European and R&B music amongst others. Live music is also available too so look around for local bands and join the locals for some fun.

Hotels in the area are also second to none with the Riu Palace Las Americas being one of the best. This five star hotel offers five-star service with all-inclusive facilities twenty four hours per day. Since it is close to the city, this hotel is ideally placed for visitors to explore Cancun or just relax on the white sandy beach or at the infinity pool.

In fact Riu owns a chain of more than one hundred hotels situated on some of the best beaches in the world. It also owns the Hotel Riu Cancun, next door neighbour to the Riu Palace Las Americas – and this property is an all inclusive resort too. It is a magnificent beach front location which has stupendous views of the Caribbean Sea and is what Mexico is all about. There have been cases reported by Thomson holiday guests of holidaymakers that booked the Riu Cancun being “overbooked” to the Riu Palace Las Americas, but this has not happened in reverse.

So what can one expect from a hotel chain like this? Well, in this instance, 569 guest rooms which have hair dryers, air conditioning, telephone and ceiling fans. Mini bars and liquor dispensers are in the rooms too along with a satellite TV. There are safes in all rooms plus most rooms have panoramic sea views from their balconies.

The fully inclusive aspect will include all food, from a full American breakfast, or continental if preferred, to a hot and cold buffer lunch with pizza and pasta available as well, and dinner buffets with a themed dinner twice a week. Optional dining is available in the grill or Japanese restaurant on site. Italian cuisine is found here too so there must be something within this choice to satisfy everyone’s taste buds. Guests from The Riu Palace Las Americas can also use facilities including the lunch buffet at the Riu Cancun next door.

Local and imported drinks are available twenty four hours per day along with non alcoholic beverages and snacks. Even the mini bars and liquor dispensers are topped up on a daily basis so there is no need to run dry even in the room!

So if anyone can tear themselves away from all this luxury, there is plenty to see and do within the local area. A spot of game fishing may be enough to work off all the food and drink that is available all day and night, and perhaps some swimming on the second largest reef in the world. This one is second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia so everyone should get out and experience it at least once on their holiday.

Within the resort area too golf is among the many sports on offer. There are world class courses, designed by well known golf champions, so give it a try.
