We have been to this Location on several occasions, and was never disappointed. We usually go during our trip to LaCrosse on Easter weekend. There is plenty of rooom and does not feel crowded. The last time we went, we were in search of something that was there before on a previous visit (an older plain pool room) we thought... More

We stay at Chula every year in January, because you cannot beat their all-inclusive special. The service was a little slower this year than in the past, but the food was great. The water park is a good size, The one thing that I noticed during my stay is that other guests with the special were not tipping - definitely... More

This past weekend my family and I stayed at Chula Vista. It was a nice hotel, however parking was horrible! I don't know if it is because of the snow, but had to walk about 5 min to get to your car in a the below zero temps. Also, they need more elevators. Always to wait in line for one.... More

We stayed in a golf villa which was a little walk from the hotel, the hotel does off a shuttle to come and get you if you choose. This was our first family vacation with the kids and the rooms were not at all like the pictures, online they look luxurious and comfortable and the bed was so uncomfortable I... More

Given wrong information on room accomodations! Most confusing floor plan I have ever seen when trying to get to indoor waterpark, restaurants, and shops! Buffet and Chop House Restaurant had low quality tasting food! Received a "discounted rate" weekend at the Chula Vista Resort just to listen to a 60-90 minute sales pitch on purchasing a vacation package thing. I... More

The water park has plenty to do. The condo unit was spacious and beautiful. Pizza from Luigi's ordered to our unit from the pizzaria in the building was delicious. The breakfast buffet at Market Fresh Buffet also on the grounds was fantastic and a good value. Our adult children, spouses, and their children numbered 11 and the 3 bedroom condo... More

We went up for a family getaway for the weekend. The condo was beautiful. The staff was fantastic. The resturants are great. We had a hard time getting the kids in the car to come home. Our family would highly recommend it. A++++

The indoor water park was probably one of the best we've been to. We traveled with 3 children ages 1,5, and 10, and there was plenty of slides and water activities to keep them occupied. The indoor water roller coaster was broke down our entire stay so that was a disappointment, but otherwise the park was great. We stayed Wednesday... More

Visited Chula Vista in January, taking advantage of a promotion offering a night in hotel and free lift tickets at nearby Cascade Mountain ski resort. Hotel was very nice, big, several restaurant choices (though we did not eat there, preferred to drive into town). Room was spacious and clean. Our favorite part of the hotel was a grand fireplace room... More

We have stayed at Chula Vista in the past with a free voucher won through a local contest. We had a great time, the park is awesome! At the time our children were too young to enjoy a lot of the slides/areas. Only complaint was the on-site buffet was too high-priced, and the waterpark was a tad bit chilly. This... More
