Everyone needs a happy place, a place where they can close their eyes and see nothing but beauty, peace, and a little perfection. Casa Dorada in Los Cabos, is definitely a happy place in Mexico.Casa Dorada is a new luxury resort in the heart of Cabo San Lucas.
The hotel has 186 suites with balconies and fabulous ocean views. Each room has a whirlpool tub, a living room, a separate bedroom and a kitchen area. I was surprised to find a flat screen television in both the living and bedrooms. There was also heat, air conditioning, and light fixture controls on a panel near the bed. That was a nice touch. All of the beds have cozy, goosedown comforters and come with free wireless Internet. I had no problem at all, connecting to the Internet. Anyway, the rooms are large, perfect for families. If you need to keep your children happy and occupied, an onsite, Kids Club, provides activities for your children.
The hotel is located in a city, so you are not isolated. Itís close to shopping; itís walking distance to a local mall. There is also a nearby marina and plenty of local entertainment. Yes. Grown-ups can walk to nearby bars and dance clubs.
I had the opportunity to sample the four hands massage. Yes. Two people massaged me at once, and it felt like heaven on earth. The 7,000 square-foot-saltwater spa also has a massage services using Chinese balls, color, and aromatherapy. Oh, and after your massage, there is nothing like relaxing at the pool or lying on a daybed on the beach, called Playa Medano.
I ate well at the hotelís restaurant, called 12 Tribes Restaurant. This international restaurant was inspired by the 12 tribes of Israel. The food in the restaurant represents cuisine from Spain, Romania, Turkey, France, Germany, Italy, Egypt, Hungary, Tunisia and others. There are also 80 wines on the restaurantís wine list.
I appreciated that I could grab good Mexican food at the swim-up bar. Upon my arrival to the hotel, I went straight to the bar, and gorged on a chicken burrito with huge wedge potato fries. Delicious! I got spoiled when I realized that I could order from the bar and have food delivered up to my room at no extra charge.
