Hi...........it's a good walk. 3.3km so about 50 mins.

Here's a walking map from your hotel to the start of the Old Town

Taxi will cost you about €5 if you decide to walk and then taxi back :)

The start of the main new town strip is only 10 mins walk http://goo.gl/maps/PO2VS

Your welcome.........

Mmmm that's an emotive question :) To be honest my best advice is to sample both. Take a walk up the new town strip, stop en route at various cafes etc. and before you know it you'll be in the Old Town. Have a mooch around and then get a taxi back.........(taxi will take you on the top road)

The Old Town has some fantastic restaurants and bars, the new town I find a little more mixed in choice of bar etc. There's something for everyone.

If you fancy another change head left once your on the seafront and explore Los Pocillos and walk on into Matagorda, which is a really nice walk and rewarded with some great cafes/eateries in Matagorda overlooking the beach............enjoy and have a great holiday :)
