We spent 7 days at Casa Dorada. Three couples. The resort is clean, well staffed and very close to the action. The pool area is great, its not the party scene you see at the all inclusives but we had three couples so we didn't need someone in a wrestling mask and bullhorn to get our day going. My wife and I would walk 3 minutes down the street to the marina every morning. You can walk anywhere from Casa Dorada which we loved. We will return to this resort.
I hear everyone talking about the pushy time share people, they were there but not a huge issue. Mexico trips are filled with "salespeople" from the moment you get off the plane. The sales people just need a "no thank you." We were NEVER approached while relaxing in the resort at the pool. If you can't say no to people and mean it, don't go to Mexico.
Onsite Restaurant was Good but it was the highest priced meal we had all week and probably the least favorite of our group. There are tons of really good restaurants within 3 blocks of Casa D.
Make sure you eat lunch at "The Office", its a beach restaurant just in front to Casa D. Throw on a shirt with your trunks and eat lunch there. Very authentic food and extremely good. We ate lunch there 4 times during the week.
You can walk anywhere for food, drinks or just to excersize.
Marina is a nice place to walk the boardwalk.
Drinks were good and not that expensive
Nice Pool, Nice beach area for Cabo.
Wal-Mart is $8 cab ride for supplies
Internet Access. Seriously it's 2013 get WiFi figured out. it was a joke.
