recommended hotels for walking distance to restaurants

My wife and I will be in P d E next February doe 5-6 nights and need direction on best area to stay and which hotels. We are looking to be able to walk to many restaurants and hopefully also the beach. Many of the top hotels I reviewed on TA indicated that the hotels were in residential areas and not easily accessible to restaurants.

Thank you.

Actually, most hotels are at walking distance to the major attractions. From Conrad Hilton ***** to low key hotels in the peninsula. If you use google maps any hotel from the peninsula to the parada 5 on both Atlantic or River Plate beaches are at a comfy walk

mpfeifer123, it's possible you were seeing reviews of hotels that are not located right in Punta del Este, but in the other parts of the area, such as Punta Ballena, La Barra, Manantiales, or Jose Ignacio. As Uruguayan posted, right in Punta del Este, all hotels are near many restaurants and the beaches. But, other than Conrad, these are not among the "best" hotels. While you may prefer normally not to rent a car, the Punta area really lends itself to having a car, because the better beaches and better restaurants and better hotels are spread over ten of miles of coastline, and even a little inland (no more than a coule of miles inland, for the most part), and if you don't have a car you just won't experience the best the area has to offer. You are planning to be there 5-6 nights. In that time, you could sample the best. If you are restricted to walking distance, or trying to use the bus system, you are likely to miss 80% or more of the good things about the area -- the ones you will read about on line that make Punta so special. Just a thought for consideration . . . .
