Riu Palace Las Américas

Blvd. Kukulcán, Km 8.5, Cancún, Quintana Roo, 77500, Mexico

The most upscale of Cancún's four Riu properties, this colossal eight-story resort at the north end of the Zona is visually stunning. Unlike the modern, minimalist resorts that dot the strip, the decoration here is a bit baroque; there are towering columns and cupolas in the lobby, and even the most basic guest rooms (all are suites) have ornate mahogany furniture and patterned bedding. All also have a walk-in closet, sitting room, and four-bottle liquor dispenser. The property has six restaurants, four of which require reservations. At a resort that mainly attracts guests over 40, the boisterous emcee directing poolside games can get a bit annoying.
