Walking distance

Which one of these hotels are within walking distance to Playa and best?

1. Grand Coco Bay

2. Catalonia Riviera Maya

3. Ocean Maya Royal by H10

4. Grand Riviera Princess

They all seem to be fairly good priced right now on Funjet for some reason so its time to book!! Which one???? Please????

Definitely NOT the Princess, in terms of walking distance. There's also a very good reason why the price is low at that resort.

ONLY the Grand Coco Bay. It's just north of Playa next to the Elements condos.

The Catalonia is in Puerto Aventuras. The Ocean Maya is up by Puerto Morelos and the Princess is between PM and Playa. You can't walk to Playa from any of those hotels.

And the price for Grand Coco Bay is good because it's a budget resort, really budget!

P.S. I would choose stay an a non AI hotel long before the Grand Coco Bay!

Agree with Shammy about the Coco Bay. Have walked past it on the beach many times --always glad to get back to the Mamita's area. It's a different clientele there than the usual Playa tourists, I think.
