Although this resort had nice rooms and pretty grounds, don't stay here if you are looking for a great indoor waterpark. Both days we were there busses of kids were dropped off for the waterpark. We had long waits for rides, but worse than that was having to witness horseplay from these unchaperoned kids. There were not enough lifeguards to... More

We enjoyed our time at Chula Vista. They seem to be making an effort to continually upgrade the facility, which I think is important in order to make them competitive. We stayed in the hotel side of the facility and you have to do quite a bit of walking to get to anything, but you don't have to go outdoors,... More

Negatives (Hope you have a couple of minutes!!) My husband and I got the King Whirlpool Suite (Room 3009). First of all, it always smells badly on the G floor.(We noticed that the last time we stayed. We were on the G floor last time, too. The room was bad, but not as bad as this time. We thought it...

I took advantage of the Golf Special that Chula Vista was offering through the end of May, and it was a phenomenal deal. The golf course (Coldwater Canyon) was in superior shape and all off the golf staff were tremendous. Some people may be tempted to look at the course size of 5400 to 5700 yards and conclude that it... More

This was our family's 3rd annual December trip to Chula Vista Resort. This was the first trip the front desk service was not an issue. We arrived before check in and the wait in line was not bad, the clerk was friendly, and we got exactly the room we had booked. YES! We really love the facility because of the... More

Honestly, I was afraid I wouldn't be impressed by the waterpark. I was happy to be wrong. It was very kid-friendly and my 4 year-old was running around on his own while I got to rest with my 7 month-old on the toddler pool. My 8 year-old had a blast. I would love to come back. Plenty of towels, but... More

The staff were great. When we checked in with our three kids for a volleyball tournament, we were upgraded to a golf villa free of charge. The room was very good. Loft with plenty of beds. However, the room was showing its age a bit. The beds were not overly comfortable. The waterpark is not as good as Kalahari in... More

The room my boyfriend and I stayed in was a Junior Suite--we had recieved a free night at Chula Vista from a bank promotion but that fact didn't sway my decison that this place sucks money right out of your pocket. There is no continental breakfast here--there is a buffet--breakfast cost $11 per adult, $13 per adult for lunch and... More
