Meal times Rui Merengue

Hi,

Does anyone know the meal times at the Rui Merengue and also when is the best time to go in the evening? Thanks :)

If I remember correctly, breakfast is 7-10am, lunch is 12:30 - 3pm, dinner is 6:30 -10pm. For the evening meal, we found the best time for the diningroom was about 7-7:15pm. For some odd reason, everyone "stampedes" once the doors open at 6:30 ...you'd think that they'd not eaten all day or they think there will be nothing left on the trays when they get there !!

Thanks for that mra1, very helpful. Don't think we'd make dinner for 6.30 with teenagers getting ready anyway! Ha,ha.Wow looks like you could eat all day if you wanted too!

Thanks again :)

tinman....yes you can eat all day! The poolside restaurant has food out most of the day....a continental type breakfast is suppose to be served there from 10am-11am & then the cooks start prepping for lunch & around 4pm, they start prepping for the a la carte Steakhouse.

Be sure & watch the information board around the pool, as the Animacion Team will post the the Beach bbq & paella days.

Have fun !

tinman ...One tip - after walking on the beach, it's a good idea to rinse the sand off your feet/ankles/shins . That way you won't tranfer sand & possible sand fleas back to your room. (there are rinse stations along the beach/promanade walkway just for that purpose)

KM_1983 ...depending on who you booked your package through, I think the limit is 3 per week. And the 2 a la cartes will rotate, as to which one is open on what day....depending on occupancy rate of the hotel at the time.
