Becoming Mr. and Mrs. Edwards
When Tori and Jason tied the knot at Casa Dorada on February 27th, there was something special in the air. Love, friendship, joy, and good old fun reigned as the couple celebrated their everlasting union in Cabo San Lucas surrounded by family and friends.
From the moment the group arrived at the resort, you could tell they were enjoying these amazing Cabo moments. And as the Big Day arrived, it only got better.
The weather couldn’t be more perfect, but then it’s Cabo after all, isn’t it. The romantic and touching ceremony took place on the terrace of 12 Tribes Restaurant with a breathtaking backdrop of Land’s End and sparkling Sea of Cortez.
The beautiful bride, handsome groom, adorable little nephew and the entire wedding party made the most of the spectacular setting as they celebrated the newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Edwards.
Our photographer, Ilse, was on site helping preserve these precious memories before, during and after the Wedding Day and as a special token she prepared a memorable video for the couple and their guests. The presentation was shown as a surprise and both Tori and Jason as well as their family and friends loved this unique touch.
You can watch this video on our Facebook page and if you are planning a Casa Dorada wedding yourself, it will be a little preview of what a Cabo beach wedding is like.
Congratulations Tori and Jason!

Casa Dorada Turns 6!
On January 31st Casa Dorada turned 6! Yet another great year full of Cabo vacation memories, destination weddings, celebrity visits and thrilling events.
Reflecting on all the exciting happenings of last year, some that particularly stand out include welcoming Starbucks to the resort, launching 2 new restaurants: Trattoria and Sushi Bar, opening Gelato Pazzo, switching to eco-friendly laundry, and celebrating a 5-year milestone in our sea turtle conservation efforts.
In addition to creating lifelong Cabo memories for our guests, we continue to get involved in our community through charity events, social outreach and eco initiatives. Last February we hosted the 3rd Champagne Jam in support of Ray Thomas Foundation, in July we pitched in to help a little boy –Diego — recover his sight; and in September we joined forces with “El Ranchito” Temporary Dog Shelter in an exciting and unique dog adoption event for the benefit of our local pups.
Activity has been the buzz word around Casa Dorada during this last year with Aqua Fitness and Zumba classes, Suspension Training as well as Ping Pong and Volleyball tournaments. In June Louis Van Amstel himself rocked Casa Dorada with his brand new partner-free dance fitness program called LaBlast and our lucky guests were invited to participate!
Our entire team has been active, too. That’s why yesterday we got together for some tacos to celebrate, somewhat belatedly, our 6th birthday and to pose for our traditional anniversary photo.
It’s been a true pleasure having you with us this last year and we look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries together.

Sushi, Wood-Oven Pizza and more Now Available as Part of Our Room Service
At Casa Dorada we love spoiling you. And when you say, “It would be great to have more dining options at the resort so that I never have to leave the stunning beachfront premises” we jump right on it.
Earlier last year we brought Starbucks onboard to make sure you have your favorite cup of java anytime. Then, in October, we launched our two brand new food & beverage concepts: Trattoria and Sushi Bar.
And now, you can enjoy our Sushi Bar and Trattoria menus in the comfort of your room!
That’s right. We are adding two special menus to the room service options, bringing the best wood-oven pizza right to your suite.

Try a variety of sushi rolls, tempura, maki as well as plenty of fresh seafood.
Staying in your room just took on a brand new meaning!
Special Events, Live Music and Full Moon Dinners at 12 Tribes this June
Who would agree with me when I say that fantastic food takes one of the TOP spots on the list of must-dos while on vacation?
I thought so!
This is exactly why a Casa Dorada experience is not only about luxury Cabo accommodation, it’s also about great food and entertainment. While you may want to take it easy during the day -- with a casual breakfast buffet at Maydan and maybe some fish tacos poolside with a Margarita for lunch -- when the night falls it’s time to kick it up a notch.
12 Tribes Restaurant is famous for its killer views of Land’s End and the Cabo San Lucas Bay, but it’s also known for its dinnertime entertainment.
This month we’re gearing up for a few special events such as Game& Wine coming up this 16th and 17th of June. In addition to live sax music and guaranteed fun ambiance, you’ll enjoy a special family-style game menu with dishes prepared in a mobile kitchen on our terrace! Wine pairing will also be an important part of this event to ensure a perfect dining experience.
Not in town for this event?
Other great ways to dine at Casa Dorada include our theme dinner nights. Try Mexican Buffet on Friday, Seafood Night on Saturday, Family BBQ on Sunday or Mediterranean Platter on Monday.
There’s also Fajitas Night on Wednesdays and Surf & Turf Night on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Of course if you’d like to experience something extra special, you’ll want to hear about our Full Moon Beachfront Dinner. This service will be available on June 22nd, 23rd and 24th featuring special gourmet menu with wine pairing, romantic ambiance by the sound of the waves and live music.
You see, we know what you mean when you say “Vacation is no time for a diet!”
Buen Provecho and we’ll see you at 12 Tribes soon.

It’s always hugely gratifying to hear your feedback! Thank you so much for expressing it and letting us know we’re right on track.
Recipe for a Fun Friday Night in Cabo: Wine & Dine & Dance
We hope everyone had a fantastic weekend because here at Casa Dorada we had a blast! Not only did we enjoy pleasant sunny days with temperature already in the 80’s, we also hosted a unique and fun event last Friday, April 5th.
12 Tribes Restaurant together with Cabo Wine Club put together a perfect fiesta where guests were invited to bring bottles of their favorite wine, enjoy signature Casa Dorada Mexican food and dance the evening away.
On the menu were salads, ceviches, tortilla soup, specialties from the grill, as well as traditional Mexican fare such as scrumptious chicken in mole sauce, tacos, quesadillas, sopes and a range of Mexican desserts.
Who could ask for more?!
But there was more, nonetheless. In addition to live entertainment, there was also a 50/50 drawing with all money raised going to Casa San Miguel Senior Center in Cabo San Lucas.
After the success of last Friday’s event we hope to have much more of the same coming soon. So stay tuned because at Casa Dorada there’s ALWAYS something fun going on and we don’t want you to MISS IT.
