Hello all! Just wondering where the best location to stay in Punta del Este is?

I feel silly saying this but I've had a look at maps & its kind of hard to know where the "hot spots" are.

Is there a main street? Or maybe even a good hotel?

I have had a search through hotels on this site but when it comes to location I have no clue.

I'm basically looking for accommodation thats very close to the beach & everything else (restaurants, cafes etc).

I really need help!!

Thanks!!

Punta del Este is a peninsula; main street is Gorlero, its axle, where you will be always close to the beach and to downtown. There are quite good places to stay there, like hotel Azul, etc. look for something next to the yacht harbour. I stay off season at hotel Palma something, where you can walk to the port and get fresh fish.

My boyfriend and I will be going there in February and are having the same issue. Although the peninsula has good beaches I heard most of the nightlife is in La Barra. Unsure about renting a car because we don't know how to drive manual, so we want to make sure we stay in a place where we will be able to get to the fun areas.
