Difficult to answer as so many pools.

I would say a couple of mins walk.

The beach is flat but can be a rocky crops on the way down.

The beach is a longish flat section, but to get to it you have to do a kind of climb and slip down approach.

They did have some steps last year but seemed to have gone or repositioned, maybe, when I was there in June.

This may help for an idea of distances at the resort:

Been to Santa Maria(the Melia) and loved that beach! Pretty confident you'll enjoy the same.

Cheers!

Playa does not have as nice a beach as Melia CSM but it is still nice. The hill to and from the beach is steep and it definitely reduces the amount of space to put a lounging chair. You either put it up high or down low by the water. But the water is shallow forever in front of Playa so it is great for kids.

From the relax "quiet pool" which is situated right by the beach, you get there in 30 sec. Other pools about 2 minutes.
