My family and I decided to try this resort for an end of summer get-a-way. When we pulled into the resort, I thought it looked quite lovely but quickly became overwhelmed by the number of buildings and lack of signage directing you to the "front desk". You notice all sorts of guests wandering around as if they're lost. I can't... More

Our church youth group just left this beautiful resort over a week ago. Although this resort offers fun in the sun and has one of the best waterparks, there business SUCKS with a capital S!!!! The married couple in our party was informed that they could attend a club preview at "The Club" at Chula Vista to determine whether or... More

There were about 15 families here for my son's wedding. We had both hotel and condos reserved and none of us were disappointed. We stayed in a 3 bedrm condo and we could not have asked for anything nicer. The place was clean and very nicely decorated, felt like a home away from home. Although we did not eat in... More

My sister and I stayed here during the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships, to watch my nephew and his team. The resort's website gave us hope the negative reviews here were an aberration. Not so. The first night, our room was messed up and instead of the double queen my sister had booked, we were put in a garish "theme/honeymoon"... More

I was very surprised that the resort, which is the host to MANY large groups due to it havng a large sports venue associated with it, didn't seem ready or even very interested in, providing a great stay. The resort is about 10 minute drive from town, so there is nothing else near the resort. First, very little preliminary information... More

This first time to Chula Vista will not be our last. We've stayed at every other waterpark resort in the Dells and decided to give Chula a try. Because of our large group of 14, we stayed in a 3-bedroom condo for 2 nights on a weekday (Mon-Wed). A 3-bed condo is really a 2-bedroom condo connected to a Double... More

We stayed in a 2BR condo 8/2-8/5. We actually had reserved a golf villa that was supposed to sleep 8 and they gave us the wrong one and upgraded us for free to the condo. The condo was nice/spacious and I was VERY glad we ended up there as the villa would have been pretty cramped for 7 people (2... More

Very nice location and good looking place. To bad that's all it has going for it. I was really surprised at the buffet. The restaurant smelled like dead fish and the food was the worst on our entire week stay in the dells. The salsa roasted chicken looked very good but was cooked with the skin on under the salsa..?..... More

Stayed for an extended weekend (Friday-Sunday) in the "Condo" unit. Had 4 kids and 2 adults. Condo unit consisted of one bedroom with 2 queen sized beds, another bedroom that had a king sized bed and attached bathroom with shower. Main bathroom off the living room area had bathtub and shower. Sleeper sofa in living room also. Kitchen was spacious.... More

We've been going to the Dells for more years than I'm willing to admit, and for the last 10 or so, have stayed at Chula Vista, at least that many times. In the early years, before their huge expansion, it was one of the least expensive places in the Dells - let's face-it, they're not exactly in the middle of... More
