My wife and I picked Cabo for our 20th wedding anniversary and we were never sorry for this choice. After searching we chose Casa Dorada mainly for the location and the fact that every room has a view of the Sea of Cortez. We have never stayed in anyplace even remotely as nice as Casa Dorada and I have to say we were overjoyed by the amenities that are available there starting with Omar & Hector at the front entry. I have to thank Gustavo since we had a 1st floor room on the first night and the view was not of the sea but the pool. After moving to the 5th floor the view was just short of heavenly. Ivan (the pool concierge) and his staff, (Emilio, Bismarck), are some of he nicest people around. There main concern was our happiness and it showed, even down to games of ping pong from time to time. We couldn't understand why anybody would use the pool when the beautiful Medano beach was just steps away! From beach cabanas to padded lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas that was the place to be. The beach staff was possibly the brightest spot of all from Gilbert, Laura to our favorite Sylvia. Sylvia and my wife would talk about their homes, kids, etc. while all the time she was bringing 2 for 1 ice buckets of cold Coronas or margaritas right to our chair. Thank you Sylvia for making our stay so much more memorable! The only issue with the beach might be the constant hawkers but if you don't sit in the front row you should be ok. Also the Mango Deck bar is rather loud and the go from @ 2:00 P.M. until after midnight. The hotel is really within walking distance of almost all of the town so there's no problem there, or the cab is only $6 U.S. and they are always waiting. If you want a cheap, very tasty and close restaurant try Sharkys which is less than a block away. It became our breakfast spot and a couple of dinners as well. Also were serenaded by Mariachis! How cool is that? All in all I have to say the Casa Dorada was everything and much more than we were expecting and we would go back in a heartbeat!
