We spent a lot of time in the indoor water park and the three girls LOVED IT! Ages 6 and two 2 year olds enjoyed every inch of the indoor park. It was clean and not so crowded. We didn't spend much time outside because it was getting chilly. Most of the employees were friendly and helpful. Recommended for families... More

Don't book at Chula Vista if you plan to spend time in their fitness room. On their website, they say their fitness room includes an elliptical and treadmills. In reality they have a broken elliptical and only 2 treadmills which is inadequate for the number of guests at a resort with over 600 rooms. Management says they plan to expand... More

Wanting to have a quick getaway for our 3rd anniversary, we thought going to the Dells would be fun. We booked a room at Chula Visit and we were disappointed! The room was DARK with no overhead lights and had NO toiletries--only weird dispensers on the wall with weirdly colored fluids. The room had an excellent view of the river,... More

Alright waterpark for kids under 10. Everything on site is expensive so you are better off going into town to eat. Some rooms are very old and run down. Parking can be a challenge. We have stayed at the Chula Vista every year for the past 8 years. This year was our last. The watermark is looking run down. Throughout... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Chula Vista! I booked a block of rooms in the Golf Villas for our youth baseball team. We were all in the building farthest from the water park. I had a King family Suite and everyone else had Studio Villas. Everyone was very pleased with their rooms. All of these had full... More

We have been here so many times, that we earned enough fiesta points that we stayed two nights in the family suite for free. This was in the older building, but we are not picky. We've stayed in just about all there rooms except for the themed rooms. The family suite was two rooms. One had a queen bed, the... More

We stayed at Chila Vista on the advice of friends. It was pricey, but we figured it was worth the splurge. It really wasn't. The hotel and rooms are very dated and felt worn out. The beds and bedding were not terribly comfortable. Each night kids ran up and door the floor while we were trying to sleep. The place... More

They let hundreds of teenage girls run the entire hotel last night n it was a disaster that left my family with about 3 hours of sleep, will never return. They are still allowing these girls here tonight and at $200 a night I should be guaranteed a nights sleep.

We had a moderately sized group of family staying in Wisconsin Dells for our family reunion. In our room (one of the tower suites with 2 queen beds) there was plenty of room for 4 people. The balcony had a nice view of the wooded area. The water park was the only activity we made use of, but we all... More
