1st time to Neuvo Vallarta

My husband & I will be staying at the Grand Mayan later next month are wondering a few things:

Is there an OXXO or similar convenience store near the Grand Mayan?

How walkable is the beach?

Is there a bus stop nearby that will take us to Marina Vallara and downtown PV?

What are the best affordable restaurants within walking distance - we are fine with walking 1 -2 miles?

Any good breakfast spots in the area?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

The beach is flat and wide and very nice to walk on.

Yes, there is an OXXO store just off property by the Sea Garden/Marina area.

Affordable restaurants: 8 tostadas, Guidos, Eddie's place(good for breakfast). All are located around/behind OXXO/marina area.

The bus stop is next to the Sea Garden, across the street from OXXO, and Guido's.

We stayed at the Grand Mayan last January and are going back for a week beginning 1/15. We felt that the restaurants at the Grand Mayan were a little pricey and the food was just okay although we enjoyed having lunch at the restaurant located by the pool closer to the hotel and the food was very good.

We really enjoyed Eddie's Place for dinner and the prices were great. We also enjoyed the breakfast/brunch buffet at Sea Garden and it was more resonable than at the Grand Mayan. There was also a pizza place just at the end of the street leading to the marina area; I can't remember the name but we had a great dinner there and the owner was very friendly and even gave us a couple of samples.
