“quiet and very relaxing”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

This was the first time at this resort and will not be the last. The staff is what makes the resort . They really are the best. I was told that the rooms are being refurbished and they appeared to be in needed of a makeover some years ago. With no oven just hot plates that worked most of the time. The kitchen is well stocked and have to say the rooms were very large and the beds were nice to sleep in.

Room Tip: higher floors are nice but stay away from the first and second floor

A wonderful start to our "chick" week with 5 friends in Cabo. We were greeted at the hotel with delicious icy margaritas. OUr rooms were ready when we arrived. We had booked two - one bedroom units on the 6th floor. They were not connecting as we wanted two kitchens and four bathrooms - the perks with 6 women.
We all walked into the first room to be greeted by multi baloons on the bed with happy birthday in rocks, a delicious birthday cake AND a bottle of champagne. A very special thanks to Dulcea (customer service) as it was a beautiful gift and very much appreciated.
The hotel has two large swimmping pools . All of the "timeshare" units overlook the lazy river which is a much quieter pool, with a swim up bar and more cabanas (free) available than the large infinity pool.
The hotel has some really great amenities by the pool. Each afternoon homemade popsicles are brought by, earlier they offer eucalyptus scented cold towels and suncreen. At the infinity pool they offer complimentary 5 minute back massages (recommend you tip as it's very nice) about 2 00 each afternoon. Both pools have swim up bars and limited menus for lunch.
Our hotel room had two full bathrooms, one with tub and separate shower and one with just a shower, huge amount of closet space. Living room with a very , very bad futon couch. We requested a cot instead and it worked out better for anyone staying up late or waking up early.
A full kitchen with basic amenities, but do have a toaster, blender and full size fridge so worked out perfect for breakfasts only. Note, that they do not have any condiments, paper towel or sharp knives so bring your own. Bedroom has king sized bed and room had two tv's that we never used.
We ate in all of the restaurants once only. Sushi at the lazy river swim up bar was delicious. Cocktails at the infinity pool were sublime. The Mexican Restaurant was lovely but so dark we couldn't see our menus without flashlights and quite overpriced for the amount of food.
The absolute highlight was dinner on the beach catered by the Italian restaurant in the hotel. We had our own private waiter that took care of every need . The meal was amazing and if you would like to do something special for someone I really do recommend it as the whole ambience is very special.
All in all the "timeshare" side of the property could do with a little upgrades especially the futon in the living room but the property itself is stunning , the beach is rough but swimmable for some although not this prairie girl. The best is that you can walk for miles unlike other Cabo hotels. Bus stops in front of the hotel for a 10 min ride to costco. We cabbed back (yes, they have taxi stands at costco) and it worked great. Went for dinner in both CAbo and San Jose del Cabo and it was 30.00 each way based on 6 of us in the van. A little pricey but really only 5.00 per person. Mia Casa restaurant in San Jose -mmm !!(see review).
If you are looking at a "time share" vacation I would REALLY, REALLY recommend this hotel. I was a travel agent for 25 years so I have had my share of "dud" hotels and this hotel is lovely.
Yoga on the beach 3 mornings a week is beautiful and the teacher is wonderful. (also complimentary) . Massages on the beach were lovely although try to go very early in the morning or at dusk as it is hot down there. (Not complimentary)
Okay, okay I've said enough. Go enjoy yourselves.

Room Tip: 6th floor had a great view of the ocean and very quiet.

I came here in the summer with 5 other friends and was dropped off in the front entrance where we were welcomed to a Mediterranean/Spanish style restaurant that looked out to the infinity pool and ocean.
We had two rooms connected to each other. The larger of the rooms had a one bedroom with a connected bathroom, couch, dining table, fair sized kitchen and a huge bathroom. The smaller of the room had 2 queen size bed, a mini kitchenette and big bathroom as well. I thought for 6 people sharing the 2 rooms was perfect. If you're looking for a newly remodeled, modern timeshare this isn't the place. I was happy to see it was very clean and the place centrally air conditioned.

Outside of the rooms, the infinity pool is awesome but so crowded we found ourselves hanging out in the secondary pool for more privacy...this pool is narrow and nothing special about it but there is a swim up bar which served sushi and pizzas was pretty awesome...pricey but still really tasty...note the swim up bar closes early.

I really appreciated the privacy this place gave, we didn't see peddlers of merchants, neither were we bothered by the locals at the beach. The hotel is about 20 minutes away from town and there's a shuttle you can take for 6 pesos one way.
If you're looking for peace and quiet with no big families and loud kids its worth being away from town. During a pick up for an excursion we had to stop by hotels closer to town and it was crazy and chaotic.

There is a breakfast buffet and personally I thought it was pretty good. If you have to choose between a plated breakfast or buffet I would definitely take the buffet option because I saw the servers basically plating the same food and charging $2 less (versus all you can eat--fruit, omelet bar, tons of pastries, exotic and tasty juice bar, etc, etc). If you can eat out in town versus staying at the hotel for dinner--from what i recall there's 3 different price tiers of dining options (buffet was cheapest) and for our last night we ate at the middle option and it wasn't very good.
If the purpose of your trip is to have a peaceful, quiet time to just relax by the pool and soak in some sun stay here!

I stayed for a week in the timeshare side with my SO and his parents. The hotel and grounds are gorgeous and staff are fantastic. Here's a list of my opinions about the place overall.

The good:

1. The room had a balcony overlooking the pool/beach area so I could see the sun rise every morning.
2. A 1-bedroom was sufficiently sized for 4 people, the bathrooms were spacious, and the kitchen adequate.
3. Housekeeping is amazing. All the staff is friendly and helpful.
4. High-quality toiletries are provided (shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, aloe vera gel, and shea butter soap) so save room in your luggage and leave those at home.
5. Kitchen is well-supplied with pans, dishes, cutlery, a blender, and a coffee maker with coffee and filters. I later noticed in the little xerox newspaper that I could have bought a mug for $5 at the deli used that for coffee every morning for free. I think the front desk should have told us that.
6. Fitness center is pretty good for a hotel gym.
7. Parking is no problem if you have a rental car - free and available right next to the tennis court.

The bad:

1. The pull-out sofa bed was probably used as a torture device by the Conquistadores.
2. While the view overlooking the pool is great, it's also very noisy if there happens to be a drunken group partying into the wee hours. Otherwise it's lovely for listening to the birds and the waves.
3. I could hear the upstairs neighbor clunking around in high heels at 3am. I can imagine that in the high season that kind of noise is multiplied.
4. Coolers with your own snacks and beverages are not permitted at the pool.
5. Bottled water is provided the first day only so you'll have to buy your own from the hotel at exorbitant expense or schlep some back to your room from Mega.
6. Internet is SLOW and $10/day and you will have to pay if you want to use the internet in the business center.
7. You can only exchange $100 USD at the front desk per room, per day. Even the staff thinks that's a stupid policy since one of them told us to come back when he gets off-duty and exchange more since he wasn't going to write down that we'd used up our exchange allowance.
8. Even with the 20% discount, food and golf is super-duper expensive.
9. The TVs in the rooms are from 1986.

While I would definitely go back to this place, I still felt a little bit nickeled-and-dimed. Why do the hotel guests have to pay for umbrellas on the beach or for (VERY) slow internet service? Stuff like that is usually included at other resorts in Mexico, although I think Los Cabos is generally just a pricey area to visit.

Wife and I stayed in a timeshare unit for a week. 3rd floor overlooks the pool and has a great view of the ocean. Very peaceful sitting on the patio and listen to the waves hit the rocks. Rooms could be upgraded a little and the addition of outdoor BBQ would be nice. Daily maid service was absolutely fantastic along with nightly turndown service. Resort got a negative review in the past and we saw none of it. Security was present throughout the facilities. They did have a private event which closed down the pool area one day but we just shifted over to the hotel pool with no problems. The next nite there was a private dinner and we got a free concert. Hot tubs need to be hotter though.
We played golf 3 times during the week and the golf concierge had a great deal for us to play their courses.
The hotel restaurants were very good and we ae used to resort prices.
We would highly recommend dinning at Sunset Da Mona Lisa. Perfect setting for a romantic dinner and the wines were great.
We had a great time celebrating our anniversary and would definately go back again

This is a great place to stay for a relaxing vacation where you receive excellent service. It's a quick drive into San Jose del Cabo and has a great beach where you can swim or just admire the view. The pools are gorgeous and the clientele is nice. If you"re looking for a party hotel, this is not the place for you. You probably want to go closer to Cabo San Lucas. But great resort. A definite recommend and would return.

...there a few things you should be aware of if you stay here, which may or may not be issues for you, but they were for us:

--When booking your airport transfer, make sure you specify that you are staying at the HILTON LOS CABOS (don't say Casa Dorada--there are a couple of other hotels in Cabo San Lucas called "Casa Dorada" and you might end up in the wrong place--as we did!) "Casa Dorada" is simply the name given to the time share section of the Hilton Los Cabos, but they are the same place.

--The Hilton Los Cabos/Casa Dorada Resort is about 10-12 miles outside of Cabo San Lucas and equidistant from San Jose Del Cabo. This is a plus in that you get a stunningly beautiful, walkable beach that is rarely crowded and a quiet, relaxing surrounding area. It's a problem if you like to party, eat out, and generally prefer a more exciting vacation, as you must either hire an expensive taxi to transport you to town or take the local bus -- which is economical at 17 pesos a ride, but does take longer because of stops, requires crossing a busy street from the hotel, and may not be convenient if you stay out late. Yes, you can rent a car which solves some of these issues, but rentals are expensive and parking in Cabo San Lucas can be difficult and very spendy as well, judging from what I heard from other hotel guests who had rentals.

--Food is an issue.Even with the 20% discount they give time-share guests, the food and drinks at the Hilton Los Cabos in all bars, restaurants, and the Deli are exhorbitantly priced ($14 for a quesadilla!). If like us you are staying in a unit with a partial kitchen (no oven, but there is a stove, microwave, and fridge), you can stock up on eats and alcohol at Wal-Mart, Costco, or Mega and feed yourself, then take a bus or taxi downtown when you prefer to eat out--which is a hassle when you're tired and hungry and just want to tuck into some local fish tacos.

Otherwise, this hotel/resort is absolutely beautiful, with lush, immaculate grounds, beautiful pools and jacuzzis (especially the infinity pool--a picture-perfect spot for vacation bliss) and exceptional service. Rooms are simply but elegantly decorated, beds are extremely comfortable, and maid service is exemplary--they'll drag and position your chairs on the beach, serve you poolside, and even promptly bring you an extra blanket late at night--anything you ask. The concierge is helpful, most of the staff speaks at least some English and were even kind enough to help me practice my very poor Spanish.This resort does seem to host quite a few private events and parties, but it in no way affected our stay save for an evening closure of the smaller pool area on the first day we were there.

While we did stay in the time-share section of this resort, our experience was virtually seamless with that of hotel guests I spoke with, as all amenities are available to all guests regardless of which "side" they're staying in. Again, I in no way want to diminish the quality of this resort, but be clear on the kind of vacation you want before you book here...almost all activities, shopping, and local restaurants are a 20-30 minute bus ride or expensive taxi away if you opt not to rent a car.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor or above for best view
