“Best place we've ever stayed. Best spot in Cabo. Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed 5 March 2010

Our group consisted of three adult couples, all well traveled in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Casa Dorada Resort at Medano Beach is right in the heart of it all, and is by far the best resort and vacation destination we've ever stayed. Not one of the six of us can wait to get back there again for next year's vacation. The resort has every amenity you could imagine, the cleanliness of this gorgeous new resort is unbelievable, each room is totally private with it's own balconies (there were 2 in our 1-bedroom condo), and an OCEAN VIEW TO DIE FOR (National Geographic'ish), a nice-sized kitchen with granite countertops, full-sized fridge, fully-equipped kitchen, our condo had two flat-screen TVs, and the jacuzzi and gorgeous spa-like bedding and beautiful tile everywhere made us feel like royalty. They have a terrific fully-equipped gym, and the spa is absolutely unbelievable. When we'd wake up in the morning, we could look out one of our two balconies to see the breathtaking view of The Arch, the sunny, blue sky, and where the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez come together... and we saw whales! and sea turtles! and sea lions! and pelicans! and it was FAB! We never needed a car, because everything is within walking distance. You can either mosey down to the beach to go for a walk or go swimming (Medano Beach is one of the rare places in Cabo that you can safely swim), and go to any of the bars or restaurants on the beach, and you can buy whatever your heart desires from the vendors who walk the beach, grab a water taxi over to Lover's Beach, zip around on a jet ski, go parasailing, or whatever you want. And if you don't want to do a thing, you can quietly and peacefully sit at the pool or beach and read or snooze all doggone day, and a very nice staff member is always happy to refresh your cocktail or bring your lunch. If you want to go into town, it's about a 10 minute walk over to the marina and see all the bizillion dollar yachts, and do some great shopping and eating along the way. You can also swim-with-the-dolphins over alongside the marina, or you can just go in and watch others do it. There is a fun nightlife at Cabo Wabo, El Squid Roe and Giggling Marlin (and many other places), and great restaurants such as The Office (which also has excellent food and is right on the beach next to the resort), Ediths is also next door to the resort, and many others. We also went zip-lining in the canyon-awesome experience! We also did the sunset dinner cruise, pirates booze cruise, marlin fishing, whale watching, and each one of these activities was a blast. All of the restaurants are superb, and also very affordable. We ate like royalty, but didn't gain any tonnage because we had so much fun walking around. Honestly, it is true paradise. There is something for everyone. You can go out and have the adventure of your life, or just sit back and relax. The pools at Casa Dorada at Medano Beach are spectacular - and at night they even have little lights in the bottom of the pool that look like the stars are sparkling - verrry dreamy. There are two large firepits adjacent to the pool that have soft and relaxing seating around them. The pool temperature is perfect, and there is a huge swim up bar. There are very luxurious lounges sounding the pool, and umbrellas to protect you from the sun or shade your eyes while you sleep or read, and there are also large "cabanna-type" enclosures that are covered with a canopy in case you want to just take a snooze with no one bothering you. The golf courses look wonderful, but we're not golfers, so we didn't go. The weather was always perfect - just the right balance of heat, humidity and ocean breezes to make you feel refreshed. If only we didn't have the reality of jobs, family , friends and pets back home, we'd live there. If I were to describe the perfect vacation, this would be it.

Wow! We just returned from 1 week at Casa Dorado and I am still in awe of our trip! The hotel was beautiful and impeccably clean. The rooms far exceeded our expectations (we had a 1 bdrm suite - huge and gorgeous). The staff was wonderful, friendly, helpful...they went out of their way to provide a special day for our 9 yr old daughter who celebrated her b'day there! I know other people have complained about the timeshare sales people, but we somehow managed to avoid it entirely! Didn't get bothered once! Loved the canopied bed-lounges around the pool and the firepits at night. Really great food both poolside and in the 12 Tribes restaurant. The location was fantastic..and what a view!! Paco, Juan, Ricky (in The B - Bar) were just a few of the staff that made our trip so memorable! If you are going to Cabo...you should absolutely stay here! This was our kids first trip to Mexico and they had a blast!!

You will not be disappointed! Lovely clean hotel, nice staff, great location! Will definitley return. Have stayed at a lot of hotels and always have something that could have been improved on but am hard pressed to come up with anything negative to say. Pace the pool concierge was helpful as was ALL of the staff and always with a smile. Our safe wouldn't open a couple of times and they were always so prompt to fix the very small issue.

We just returned from spending 2 weeks at Casa Dorada and cannot think of one thing we didn't like about it. The hotel itself is so clean and well kept and I might add beautiful. The staff that works there is so friendly and helpful....they will do anything for you. Paco is one of our favorite employees there!! (among many others) Go...you will not be sorry!

This hotel in Cabo is right in the heart of Medano Beach; therefore, it features easy access to excellent beaches, excellent water sports, excellent beachside eating and drinking. Furthermore, the hotel is within walking distance to both the marina and city. I also discovered Edith's a few blocks away and wish I had known about this wonderful restaurant last time I was in town. Truly a great place to eat. The hotel proper features a nice pool and great amenities such as spa, gym and two very good restaurants. The service was constantly friendly and helpful. I really had a wonderful time and plan on staying at Casa Dorada my time on vacation. Paco, the pool concierge, is a very good source for dinner reservations, suggestions and information. Find him.

I travelled to Los Cabos Casa Dorada a few weeks ago. I just wanted to have a nice relaxing stay with my spouse.
First of all the cleanliness of the hotel has much to desire, the floor was kinda dirty, the room had some kind of awkward smell and wasn't all cleaned up.
A few hours after cheking in, the time share people just kept on our back, I truely find that disgusting. We are paying (a lot) to stay at this hotel, I don't wont anyone to sell me a timeshare. If I wanted one, I would have bought one. Anyway, there was this girl that just couldn't accept a "no" as response.

To be honest I am quite mad at the moment for these vacations, when we normaly enjoy staying at los cabos. But it was our first time at Casa Dorada... Our last too.

I really won't recomend it to any of my friends and/or family and I strongly suggest all of you to find another solution. I should add that Los Cabos hosts many 5 stars + All inclusive hotels that are better than C.Dorada.
