location of el dorado seaside suites

We really like the look of the el dorado seaside suites but are worried that it might be too isolated. We can't decide between this hotel and the Riu Palace Mexico which is further up the coast.

We also want to be able to visit the Chichen Itsa and other historical sites I want the best of both worlds - a quiet, peaceful holiday but with the ability of being able to go for a walk to the local town or shopping area. So can anyone advise us on the best location?

El Dorado Seaside Suites is between Puerto Aventuras and Akumal. About 1 hour and 15 minutes from the Cancun airport. You would need to use some kind of transportation to get anywhere. Sounds like you need to rent a car, for Chichen Itsa and all. We use Easy Way car rental. Very reliable.

Consider that it is about half way between Playa and Tulum, and quite close to both Puerto Aventuras and Akumal. It's actually a perfect jumping off place for most day trips. A 10 minute walk out to the front gate and you can catch a colectivo to anywhere. Or the staff will be happy to call you a cab. Chitzen Itza is a long trip, regardless of which resort you choose,

EDSS is a favorite vacation spot of mine but it is not walking distance to any town. You are close to Playa and also Tulum which is appealing to us, we just grab a taxi and go. It is a great resort for totally relaxing!

Yes if walking off-site to shopping, restaurants, etc is a “Must have” criteria then EDSS is definitely out of the question…

There are a couple of resorts right in PA that you can walk from, Dreams PA, Catalonia Yucatan Beach / Riviera Maya & the smaller Omni. Although the Omni is not all-inclusive.

Akumal also has an all-inclusive within walking distance, Akumal Beach Resort, check that forum.

And there is also Puerto Morelos, although not sure what’s walking distance there. But the biggest selection is definitely in PDC or Cancun for that matter…
