If you want to fly out of Canada, I believe it is 'Signature vacations' that does most of the Riu Resorts. The resort we stayed at was not directly on the beach, it was about a 5-8 minute walk, i would suggest staying at one of the sister RIU resort that are located directly on the beach, i'm sorry, i don't remember the names of them. The nice thing about Riu though, is that you can eat at, use the pools, beaches and bars of any of the neighbouring sister resorts! If you have any questions let me know, I'll do my best to help
Thank you so much for your advice. I haven't heard very good things about Signature Vacations... I was honestly hoping to stick with Air Canada, Westjet, or Transat....
I don't know if Detroit is much of an option for us since many of the guests are from all across Ontario (including northern Ontario...).
Hoping to find a travel agent soon.
I see you are from London also! Did you use a travel agent locally? Any recommendations?
