I work at a hotel and took a "busman's holiday". It is what I usually have if I stay anywhere. This place was clean, people were friendly, food was great. Room had a beautiful view of snow covered woods and the crazy people in the outdoor hottub. (Tip from a hotel employee-always check that your room has everything you need... More

Very nice spot. Have stayed at Kalahari, Wilderness, and Great Wolf, and I would rate Chula Vista right up there. Main drawback is that while having 600 rooms, the Indoor Park area is pretty small, comparatively speaking. I would say it's maybe 1/4 to 1/3 the size of Kalahari. But despite being small, slides were as good of not better.... More

We arrived and was very impressed by the grounds its very beautiful and secluded in the woods on the Wisconsin river. We were able to check in early.But we had the all-inclusive and it didn't start until 4:00 so we had to bum around our room and the hallways until it started. Then We went to the buffet and it...

Our initial impression was not good as the reservations manager did not return our three calls to help us with a reservation problem. The resort was clean and neat, and the staff friendly. We were very dissapointed that the water coaster was unoperational for the three days that we stayed after being promised that it would be working on our... More

Paper towels Garbage bags coffee pot (if 4 cup isn't large enough for you group) Plates, cups, bowls, etc (settings for 8 provided)

I surprised my husband and 2 year old daughter by taking them on a much needed 3 night getaway. We are from Chicago and they had no idea where we were going. Neither one of us had ever been to the Dells and I heard of the Chula Vista from a friend. My husband was very surprised and we had... More

I was just at the Chula Vista Resort for my brothers wedding. His fiance's family is good friends with the owners so I assumed we would be treated a little better than they normally would. This however was not the case. We arrived on Oct. 9 and stayed till the 12th. On our first day we got to check in... More

We stayed at the Chula Vista one night at the end of September, so can't comment on it during the peak season. We had a condo with 2 queen beds and pull-out sofa, overlooking the Wisconsin river. The room was very nice, up to date and clean with plenty of room for all 5 of us. The outdoor waterpark was... More

Overall this was a decent trip. It's our third trip to The Dells. The fist was forgetable, the second a great and the third was The Chula Vista. The rate was great (99.00 / night for a party of 4). The room was clean and comfotable, but it was a bit far away from the activities. The walls are a... More
