“Perfect 40th Birthday Getaway”
Reviewed October 23, 2012 NEW
5 of my friends and I went to Cabo July 11-15th, 2012 to celebrate my 40th birthday. I must say that was the best vacation I have ever had. Casa Dorada and the staff were the icing on the cake. When we 1st arrived the van pulled up and I thought I was in heaven. We were greeted with the most amazing view looking out onto the ocean. Tomas at the front entrance was fabulous. He gave great suggestions for local activities, transportation and greeted us all with a handsome smile everyday.
When we checked in we were initially given a handicap 2 bedroom suite on the 2nd floor poolside. It was a nice room, but did not give me the view I requested on my reservation, plus the water did not get hot in the master shower. I immediately went to the front desk and requested a room change. The front desk was not able to change our room until the next day because they said they were at capacity. The next day we were able to change rooms to the 6th floor above the lobby area. Our room was perfect. I could not have dreamed of a better suite. The view was perfect, the room was clean everything as I saw on their website when I booked the room. The convience of the large kitchen allowed us to save money on food. We went grocery shopping at Walmart and cooked in our room for breakfast and Dinner a few nights.
The next day was my 40th birthday several guest greeted me Happy Birthday throughout the day. We spent part of the day on a great Booze cruise and walked along the marina. During our trip we also went zip-lining and parasalling. Despite other people's comments not once were we bombarded by time share sales people.
The resort is located at the best location in Cabo. I compared the location with others and I am so glad we stayed at Casa Dorada. Location was absolutely perfect. We were in walking distance to everything. The best place I went to almost everyday was the Mango Bar which is litteraly on the beach on the back side of the hotel. The food at Sharky's on the corner was excellent and the people were friendly.
I think we are going to make Cabo and Casa Dorada our annual trip. We had a blast.
