Overview

About the property

Wake up steps to the only swimmable beach in the most ideal location in Cabo

One of the most beautiful luxury resorts located directly on the main (Medano) beach. The only swimmable beach in Cabo San Lucas.

Stay at one of the most desirable locations in Cabo San Lucas on the only safe swimmable part of Medano Beach....you cannot swim at certain locations of Medano beach like Villa Estancia. This is a big part of why we chose this location. This resort has all the ammenities 2 pools, 1 with swim up bar, the other with child's area and volley ball net. There is a fresh sushi bar, ice cream bar and Starbucks adjacent to one of the pools. An open bar adjacent to the other pool with big sceen TV's for those of you who want to catch a game while on vacation, along with a pool table. Fuse ball table and ping pong also next to one of the pools and a crafts table for kids as well. You can lounge or swim in pool while kids play ping pong, fuse ball, arts and crafts or indulge in ice cream. If your kids are younger there is a kids club where you can let them have fun while you have grown up time. Full service around the bar both drinks and food. An exercise room and spa services are also available. Daily maid service included.

About Steve and Sharon Barrese

We love to get away to the warm sunshine and people of Cabo. It's a fairly quick plane ride from the Bay Area and it's always guaranteed good weather, great food and fun.

Steve and Sharon Barrese purchased this condo in 2009

Why Steve and Sharon Barrese chose Cabo San Lucas

This property has it all. From friendliness, to cleanliness. Daily maid service, kitchen, huge balconies with sweeping views all the way to the arch. You are on the beach you can easily walk downtown or to best local restaurants. No need for car rental. Lost of people watching along a huge stretch of swimmable beach. You can walk one way to Hacienda another beautiful resort for a margarita and tasty snack to a quieter area then walk the other direction past all the action at Mango deck. Safe and so much fun in the sun!

What makes this condo unique

On site spa. Love going down to dry or steam sauna any time of the day or night til 10pm. Kids love to play ping pong and pool and paddle board on the beach. The ocean here is safe to swim in and clean.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I am hesitant to write a review about this place because it is my wife and I's little secret. The owners are so nice I just had to. The 1 bedrooms and up have kitchen so you cook breakfast, lunch and go out or stay in for dinner. The Junior suite has kitchenette which is also very functional for light cooking. The restaurants on site are excellent and never crowded. The beach is excellent for swimming or sunning, chairs are far enough away from the guys selling you don't get bothered, but are right there if you want them. A simple "no gracias", or not engaging at all works too.



The pools are also just perfect. A kids pool at the top and a adult pool at the bottom. Also has a small kids only pool. The swim up bar is so much fun with $1 mango margarita's 1-5 pm. They will allow coolers at the pool as long as you are buying drinks from the bar. there is a ping pong table, fuse ball table both around pool area and a pool table steps from pools inside bar that opens to pools. Big screen TV's for those who just can't miss a game.



The place is located a few short blocks from downtown, I measure it as a 2 beer walk. 30 second walk to 'The Office' Restaurant and Mangoes. If you go out to the beach the restaurant the the left of the hotel there is another restaurant. There are places along the beach that have 30 - 60 minute messages for $30 and hour!



The staff is ever giving and as friendly as they come, very helpful.

HEAVEN!!! Best stay ever!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start?! From my initial email to Sharon inquiring about the property to the last text we exchanged upon my return home, everything was perfect!! Sharon provided me with every level of detail needed to make this perfect decision. Her responsiveness was nearly immediate! She provided insight as to the local scene including a full list of restaurants and things to do. Transportation options to/from the airport were also provided to us.

Casa Dorada is simply breath-taking! When we arrived we found it even more beautiful than the pictures showed. As soon as you get out of the shuttle, you are knocked out by the view from the front through the back of the property and that beautiful ocean!

Every member of the staff was SINCERELY there to ensure our stay was excellent!

The room was beautiful and every one of them has a balcony (or patio) facing the ocean. The pools are well maintained, as is the whole grounds area, and we never struggled to find a chair. Casa Dorada is big enough to have the amenities you need (multiple dining and drinking options, room service, towel service, concierge) yet small enough (6 floors high) that you don't wait for elevators or feel like you are in a herd of people.

Tip: DO let the bellman take you to your room. We didn't want to bother him since we just had 1 piece of luggage each, but then we had to call for help when we THOUGHT the electricity didn't work....it sure did, but you have to put one of your room keys in the slot on the wall to turn it on. A helpful maintenance guy helped us figure that out.

We spent most of our first days at the pool then later headed to the beach area. Swimming in the ocean is an option here because of the location! They have a lifeguard on duty to keep watch and help you in and out of the water if needed. The sand can be a challenge to walk in as it's deep and grainy (great natural loofa for your feet!).

The main city part of Cabo was a great opportunity to try various restaurants but certainly check into the ones Sharon suggests so you aren't just in the touristy part. We felt completely safe in Cabo and the taxi's (green vans) are plentiful and helpful and about a $7-10 ride to the resort. We really enjoyed being in the main shopping area on Sunday night and found out that Sunday night is a big family night. We enjoyed watching a kids entertainer host a free kids participation activity (with music). Great to see the locals!

HIGHLY recommend Sharon's Cabo VRBO!

Fantastic resort, relaxing, great communication with owners

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa Dorada was wonderful! Eight of us (4 adults and 4 young children) stayed in the two bedroom suite. It was a good amount of privacy for the two separate families, with a generous shared living space and functional kitchen, with dishes, coffee maker, pots and pans. We had access to the hotel services without any trouble - roll away twin bed, housekeeping service, etc. A couple little property issues were attended to quickly by the hotel - the sliding door in one of the bedrooms wasn't locking, but was fixed right away; bathtub draining slowly, and a need for extra bedding. The room was on the ground floor, which was perfect for us for a great view and grass/patios for the kids to play on. It was also steps away from the pool, so it was easy to run back for forgotten items. Even with the great location, we also had zero noise problems, which I had heard about at other resorts. The pools at were fantastic. We also took advantage of daily ice cream, the latte stand by the pool, pool bar and CasaKidz was a huge hit with our children! We did not end up doing any of the dining plans offered by the hotel, but enjoyed the sushi restaurant (that also serves to the pool), the breakfast buffet a couple mornings, and mostly ate dinner off the resort.

Prior to our trip, Sharon was very responsive to email and gave us lots of great tips on restaurants, airport transportation, etc. I would definitely book the same spot on my next trip to Cabo!

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

It had been many years since I had been to Cabo and was looking forward to getting back. I choose Casa Dorado because of the location to the nice beaches and it is walking distance to downtown. We were so impressed with the accommodations and the service. We didn't have the best room location so make sure you get a room on the 4th floor or higher.

Sharon took really good care of us! She was quick to respond to all my questions. She helped us sett up ground transportation from the airport and gave us great recommendations for restaurants.

I can not wait to go back!

Very nice condo in a quiet small complex

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described, and in good condition. Be sure to ask for the code for the condo wifi, otherwise reception is difficult. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone wanting to get away from it all. It seemed most of the occupants were people who lived here for months and kept to themselves. It is a 10 min cab ride to the square and not much around the complex. We will stay here again.

Awesome Stay as Always

  • 5 of 5

We usually are able to trade our week through Interval for Casa Dorado. This year was difficult so I looked on VRBO to purchase someone else's week. I came across Steve and Sharon's post. They were both so very helpful and accommodating. They were able to get us exactly what we wanted when nobody else could. Also helped us with a shuttle service to and from resort to airport. Casa Dorado is such an amazing resort. It is our all time favorite place in Cabo. Service is exceptional, location is 5 star and the rooms are perfect. Great resort for everyone!!!! Thank you so much Steve and Sharon. The best family vacation so far!

Don't hesitate - this is a fantastic getaway place!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to get away from the winter cold... and found Casa Dorado. Before arriving, Sharon took such good care of us - quick responses to all our questions, and all sorts of insider tips about restaurants and activities set us up very well. Arrived to what was exactly as advertised. Great location, beautiful beach, close to all the best of San Lucas. With Starbucks latte's in the morning and some amazing restaurants all around, we ate like royalty and were able to enjoy a great mix of relaxation and new adventures. Our favorite spot was the Bar Esquina in The Bahia Hotel... great food and live music. The staff at Casa Dorado rolled out the red carpet and provided excellent service from start to finish. Very clean, and well taken care of. Can't beat the views. Wow. Would highly recommend staying here - we will definitely be back.
