We booked a two bedroom condo at Chula Vista for spring break. After waiting for one hour to check in, Chula Vista lost our reservation even though I brought up my credit card statement showing 309.00 dollars was placed as a down payment. After arguing for 25 minutes with Andrew he stated that no managers were available because they were... More

We took our two young toddlers to the Dells for a much needed family getaway. We wanted them to have some pool time and activity during the cold March. As a couple, we wanted to be able to be able to enjoy ourselves after they went to bed. We had trouble finding anything slightly affordable in the Dells that had... More

Great resort but the featured show Jeremy Allen's Grand Illusions made our money magically disappear. It lasted 30 minutes and cost us $15.00 per person. The tricks were elementary and the jokes were on us. We travel a lot and we expected better value for our money, especially from a 4 star hotel.

Our family has stayed at all of the Dells large resorts with waterparks over the last eight years. We liked how warm the water was,rarely did we get chilled. Plenty of fun slides for us as well as our almost 12 year old, but definitely lacking in the toddler area for our 23 month old compared to other resorts. Service... More

I was dreading my trip after reading so many negative reviews about this place. I am happy to report I was pleasantly surprised. Our check-in was extremely fast and the check-in staff were very courteous. We checked in on Sunday afternoon. Not sure if that had anything to do with our good service. The golf villa we had chosen was... More

This resort is too big. We were treated like a number, and when our vehicle was VANDALIZED in the parking lot, the front desk staff, managers and security staff just BLEW US OFF! I brought the damage to the staff's attention after our first night there. The security guard first doubted that the damage occured on site, despite our not... More

Third time to the Dells. First stay was at Blackhawk, second was at Northern Bay resort (highly recommended). Third time was not a charm. Booked through owner. Stayed in Golf Villas. Check in was long and laborious. Room smelled horrible. Like old cigars and smelly sneakers. The smell did not diffuse at all, even after opening sliding door. There were... More

Comfortable, clean rooms, very slow internet, good food. Rooms were comfortable. You can tell it's an older resort and my co-worker and I were in one of the older buildings. The soft goods were up to date and in good shape, but some general signs of aging in the building itself. I was attending for a tech conference, so was... More

My wife and I have been going to the Chula Vista for years and have made some great memories there. I actually proposed to her there in December of 2008! But that trip, and the few before that, we noticed the resort going downhill. We said that the 2008 trip would be our last because of overcrowding and the rudeness... More
