We experienced some horrible service on Christmas day at the resort from the front desk help. Both women were rude and short with our children. They would not answer their question and became rude when pressed for help. Other then those two ladies, our stay was great. I just believe that these women were horrible cause they did not want...

This is our second year staying at Chula Vista in January and taking advantage of their all-inclusive special ($200 for 2 nights including waterpark and food and drinks). My husband and I went with our 2 year old son and again had a great time. We had a 2 bedroom family suite in the hotel and the room was large... More

The water in the waterpark was so cold, the tunnel to get to the park, again cold. Seriously, get out of the water and head back to your room thru a 55-60 degree tunnel. We stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom condo, which was nice. however, the layout was not well thought out. I know you go for the... More

Water park is COLD! Lifeguards are RUDE! Hot tub is not hot! Rooms are marginal at best! For being in the "water park capital of the world" this place needs lots of improvements! We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. The walk from the condo to the water park includes the underground tunnel. Wear a winter coat! It's very cold... More

We spent 2 nights in one of their Golf Villa's. There was 5 of us ( 3 adults and 2 children). What we finally ended up with after several phone calls was great. Several months ago, I contacted an owner of a studio condo that stated it slept 6 people and had a full kitchen. The price was right and... More

Top 10 Reasons why Chula Vista is a bad joke. 10.) No conditioner. Good luck getting a comb through your hair ladies. 9.) If you don't like a few extra hairs in your bed to keep you warm, this may not be the place for you. (Upon pulling back the covers on our bed, we were greeted with our welcome... More

My husband and I went to Chula Vista for a three-day all inclusive plan with our son and his fiancee. We all had a wonderful time. We had all the food and drinks we wanted and enjoyed all of our time there. We spent time in the waterpark each day and had a lot of fun. The hot tub was... More

There was an incredible inclusive offer --$99 for a two night stay for two in a double queen beds junior suite with a view with all the food and drink and water park you want. The best deal Chula Vista has ever offered. However, the rug was no vacuumed in our room when we arrived. We had to step around... More

This is the 4th time we have stayed at this resort, and the first time we have travelled there with extended family (our idea since we had such great experiences there previously). The off-peak prices for the all inclusive package are great, the food is excellent, and the indoor waterpark is great for kids, and adults. The only issues we... More
