Best La Herradura Hotels - Punta de la MonaPunta de la Mona is the nicest area to stay with full size villas and most homes have private pools. Unless you are lower down on the punta, it's preferrable to have a car to get around. Walking to town from the top of the Punta can take 20-25 minutes.
The only hotel in the prestigious Punta de la Mona is:
The Hotel Best Alcazar is a 4-Star hotel right in the heart of the Punta de la Mona. It has an hourly shuttle that runs from the hotel to Marina del Este, playa Berengueles and then down to the main La Herradura beach.

Best La Herradura Hotels - Marina del EsteThe Marina del Este area is equipped with a grocery store, restaurants, Playa Berengueles, Scuba Diving schools and tours, boat rentals and other services.
It's preferrable to have a car if you want to get to the La Herrdura beach side, although there is a local bus service. Walking from the Marina del Este to the La Herradura beach can take 35-40 min (depending on how far into the marina you are).

- The best and only hotel near the Marina is the
Hotel Best Alcazar.
