Speaking of April Fools’ Day…
With April Fools’ Day just behind us, all the hilarious jokes and pranks made me think of a great amenity we have for our little guests at Casa Dorada.
It’s a breakfast that looks like eggs, French fries and ketchup, making the little ones really happy, but on a closer look it turns out to be mango surrounded by whipped cream, with apple slices and raspberry sauce. Tricked you!
This amenity is sent to a randomly picked room and not even the parents are in the know. Just a few days ago the lucky ones were Dash and Skate staying in room 129 and the whole family got tricked
But not all our amenities are tricky! We recently furnished both our pool decks with the cutest little chaises made especially for kids. Each one comes with its own little umbrella and our tiny guests LOVE them.
We also continue our famous face painting rounds by the pool, where our Casa Kidz staff goes above and beyond in transforming kids into magical little creatures.
Because a Casa Dorada family vacation is all about creating memories. Ones that you and your kids will remember for a long time and laugh about at the dinner table when they are all grown up.
Casa Dorada Helps Put a Smile on Kids’ Faces… Again
What better way to get away from the daily grind and worries than a day at the beach, right? And nobody enjoys it more than kids. Particularly if it’s not something they get to do very often.
Last Saturday, our Casa Kidz team participated in a heartwarming event, where 63 kids from two local orphanages (Casa Hogar Cabo San Lucas and Casa Hogar Todos Santos) were invited for a fun day on the beach.
The event was organized by private parties and some local businesses, like Casa Dorada, were invited to offer extra support. This made it possible for the kids to enjoy a host of activities such as kayaking, stand-up paddle and a number of games and contests. They received inflatable beach toys to make their day out even more fun and by the early afternoon, when it was time to go home, they took with them not only prizes that they won in our competitions, but also fond memories that they would cherish for a long time.
And while the kids had a blast that day, it was us who felt blessed to be able to help, to put a smile on these little faces, and see the joy in their eyes.
What an inspiring DAY AT THE BEACH!

Kids in Paradise
While older kids relish in Spring Break fun in resorts across Cabo San Lucas, we’ve decided to give our little guests a reason to be happy, too. Well, that is if enjoying a blissful Cabo vacation with mom and dad wasn´t enough!
This week we have added 16 kid-size chaises to our pool area and they couldn’t be cuter! The mini chaises sport their own small umbrellas to keep the kiddos out of the sun and are much more comfy for the little bodies than the regular adult-size chaises.
Now, with a fruit smoothie in hand and in the comfort of their very own chaise, kids will love hanging out at our pool EVEN more -- just like mom and dad!
And once they are finally ready to move on to other activities, remember that we have Painting Workshops, Dominos Tournaments, plenty of creative activities at Casa Kidz and an ever-growing range of kids’ happenings here at Casa Dorada. Ask our Concierge for details and take advantage of all the fun options we provide to ensure our young guests have a Cabo family vacation to remember.
Can you imagine your kids kicking back in these adorable little chaises? Come down and check them out!
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.

We hope our Casa Dorada guests, both returning and first-timers, come to enjoy the amenities that make our Cabo beachfront resort deserving of the title “Excellent”.
It is thanks to recognitions like this one that our hard work feels truly worthwhile, because it is an expression of our guests’ satisfaction. Yet another round of positive feedback came earlier this month from a group of travel agents who visited our hotel from Colombia. These travel professionals said they were most impressed by our property’s beachfront location close to an array of water sports and EVERYTHING else. They also considered Casa Dorada a perfect venue for destination weddings and events.
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.
