Some college girlfriends of mine decided to get away for a weekend. I had heard about Chula Vista and it was pretty affordable (that should have been my first red flag), so we booked a 2 bedroom condo for 10 of us. We had high hopes, but my God were we disappointed. First of all...they make it sound like there... More

my husband & I and another couple took advantage of the all inclusive-all you can eat/drink & room only $99 a night-we stayed over thanksgiving for 2 nights. The resort is very nice-decorated nicely & i loved how many fireplaces are thruout. Unfortunately the main ones in the lobby always had people in the seats so we could never sit... More

I was completely disappointed with the entire experience. I booked this room in November 2009 for a June 2010 stay and I paid in full. When I was on the phone with the booking agent I asked for a couple of things. 1. I wanted to be in a room that was closest to the water park. 2. We were... More

We stayed November 22-23rd and there were not very many people around. I had asked for a wooded view when I made the reservation but instead we got a parking lot view. I could have complained but before I realized it the kids had already picked their beds. When we got to the park there were no lines for any... More

This is a really nice hotel but the compound is huge. Just finding the right building can be a challenge if you have never been there before. The food was OK and the staff is very friendly and helpfull. My only real complaint is about the indoor waterpark. The water in the small kids part of the park was very... More

This was a very nice resort especially with the all-inclusive option. We came during the off-season so the rate was fantastic. We stayed in on of the condo rooms and it was great. A very nice Jacuzzi tub with a full kitchen. The food at the buffet was great for breakfast and dinner. Lunch was not as good. The sportsbar... More

We are about to plan our 6th visit to the Chula Vista on Thanksgiving weekend. We were worried about bed bugs after reading a few reviews as they have been a nation wide epidemic and we had even encountered them in Colorado this summer. Although we were lucky enough to not bring them home, they still haunt our dreams sometimes.... More

After reading all the reviews posted, we still booked our trip to this resort and stayed in a 3 bedroom condo. with another family. In all, there were 3 toddlers and 1 older child, along with the 4 adults. The room was exactly as described on the website and worked out great for us. The kitchen is fully stocked with... More

I stayed here on business, so I wasn't traveling with children and did not use the water park facilities. The location is fine if you have a rental car (I did) or are driving in. It is about 10 minutes from downtown Wisconsin Dells, so I was able to get anywhere to do touristy things or dine with ease. The... More

My husband and I stayed at the Chula Vista Resort for a 3 day conference. We had a room with 2 queen beds in the "tower guest room" section of the resort. The room was spacious and clean. The beds were comfortable. It could have used a few more outlets to plug in our computer and cell phones. The WIFI... More
