My fiancé and I were debating between two or three hotels, all central and within the same price point. After a bit of research (and scouring TripAdvisor), we opted for Casa Dorada and we couldn't have been happier with our decision! The property is beautiful; the views are stunning and the rooms are well appointed. The service is great; the staff went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and the concierge service was very helpful. And the location... well, I'm not sure how you can beat it! This was my first time in Cabo (my fiancé's third or fourth) and we were walking distance to everything. If we decided to cab, we weren't more than a $6 cab ride from any restaurant that we wanted to visit.
The pool area is great -- wonderful pool, great lounge area and especially nice towels (minor, but I even commented on them)! They have happy hour from 11-12 and from 4-5PM where drinks are 2 for 1. The lounge area by their restaurant, 12 Tribes, is great for a pre-dinner cocktail, too! I didn't experience much of their spa, but the spa menu looked great for any ladies looking to get pampered on their getaway. Nice workout facility, though I didn't use it as much as I had hoped (the pool was too enticing).
All in all, a fab experience. If we go back to Cabo (which we probably will!), we would stay here again without a question!
