Bottom Line

The Casa Dorada Resort & Spa has an excellent location on Medano Beach, offering the best swimming area in Cabo San Lucas. All 185 rooms are airy, sophisticated suites with spacious kitchenettes, large bathrooms with enormous showers and tubs, and balconies with ocean views. One outstanding feature is the big, beautiful pool with plush lounge chairs and poolside service. While other Cabo resorts can feel crowded, this pool maintains a peaceful quality, although some guests complain about music being a touch too loud. Hammocks by a cozy fire pit and free Wi-Fi are also positives. Fitness options include an 18-hole golf course, large fitness center, or morning yoga classes. The Casa Dorada is walking distance to Cabo's best restaurants and shopping, allowing visitors to skip expensive taxis.

Close to the center of Cabo San Lucas on Medano Beach

Map of Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa

Playa Medano or Medano Beach is the best beach in Cabo San Lucas for swimming, and Casa Dorada is located right in the heart of this area. While some resorts are a taxi ride away from the action of Cabo San Lucas, Casa Dorada is close to the marina, the shopping street Boulevard Marina, and a variety of restaurants. The one negative aspect about this hotel's location is that beach vendors are the norm on these beaches, selling everything from jewelry to arts and crafts.

Cabo San Lucas is located at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula. This beach town is part of the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos -- the Capes -- and has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. Hence the nickname Cabo San Loco.
