We just spend 2 weeks in November 2013 at Casa Dorada. The hotel is beautiful with the best location on Medano Beach. Stunning views from every room of Land's End where you can see Lover's Beach. The staff is amazing, making sure your vacation is the best from the front desk staff (Christian, Gus, Jeanine etc.) cleaning staff to the concierge (Laura, Reyna, etc.) and the pool staff (Ivan, Gustavo, Alfredo, Armando,Pepe, Emilio, Bismark, Angela, Marvin, etc.) They get to know you real quick and they are all so amazing. The beds in the rooms are very comfortable. The 12 Tribes restaurant is great. Carlos and his staff are very talented and create excellent dishes.You must try the lobster bisque. They also have a sushi bar and thin crust wood oven pizza..fantastic!! The open air restaurant overlooking the ocean is very romantic, but also family friendly. Just beautiful. Casa Dorada and Cabo are very safe. This hotel is also walking distance to town where there is a fairly large mall. You can also take a cab to Wallmart or Costco for about $8 -$10 each way. We will be back soon!!!
