Sorry, it is true. We stayed there three years ago and it was two beds pushed together with a pad in the middle to form a very large bed. The beds are firm; however, they will provide a mattress pad upon request.

IF thats the case thats horrible and I also heard they have real hard mattresses is that true?
Just returned from the Riu and it is true. We stayed in a Junior suite and it had 2 double beds pushed together. I don't know if it was just junior suites but our room had it. The beds are also hard. They do offer mattress toppers. Just ask when you check-in and I'm sure they'll put one on your bed.
Hope this helps.
