I stayed at the Valentin in 2009 and loved it; we’ve also stayed at the Royal but much preferred the Valentin. However, it is an approx 10-15 minutes taxi ride from Playa; definitely not walking distance. The Gran Porto Real is right in PDC and is walking distance from Playa; but it’s a huge step down from the likes of the Royal IMPO in terms of amenities, and we didn’t rate the pool or beach (as guests at the Royal, we were allowed to use the facilities at the GPR). Otherwise, I THINK that Sandos Playacar and the Riu’s are kind of walking distance; but I think you’re looking at about 25 minutes, which in the heat will not be pleasant, so really oyu’d be looking at taxis (plus, don’t quote me on that; I’m not 100% and there’s a few Rius; I know that some are closer than others).

We went with the Royal because we wanted to be in town, and while we liked being in town, in future, the resort amenities and so on would win out over the location. We felt the Royal lacked in many areas, and wished we’d had stayed at one of the larger resorts like the Valentin instead.

If you have any questions re the Valentin, let me know.
