    Rui beds?

    Is it true they just put two double beds together to make a king bed??

    IF thats the case thats horrible and I also heard they have real hard mattresses is that true?

    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.

    occidental...no they do not.

    re: riu combining twins to make a king, i do not know if they do it or not.

    it is very commonplace on a cruise ship but not common for hotel rooms UNLESS it is a sleep number bed .

    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.
