Riu Palace Las Americas is in the final stages of finishing its guest room renovations. Although initially scheduled to be completed Oct. 10, 2015, the estimated completion date has been re-set to Oct. 29, 2015. Room renovations have reportedly consisted of installing see-through plexiglass panels on the balconies, new balcony doors, and installing new bathroom amenities including a walk-in shower (the old bathrooms had a dark tub/shower combo). The resort has remained open during these renovations with the option of transferring to the Riu Palace Peninsula.
Riu Palace Las Americas is planning on finishing its renovation project next year in 2016–it is projected that the resort will be working on renovating public spaces for several months next year (estimated dates are Aug. 2016 through Oct. 2016). It is unclear at this time exactly what public spaces will be renovated. Also, due to the nature of these renovations, the entire resort may be shutting down during these months in 2016.
