Editor’s Review of Chula Vista Resort

Lisa Meyers McClintick Editor’s Rating 5/5 In the nation's epicenter for groundbreaking water park resorts, Wisconsin Dell's Chula Vista Resort stands out nicely with a rare location along the nicely wooded Wisconsin River. It feels tucked-away from the hubbub of downtown, the Interstate or Dells Parkway with its blazing neon and over-the-top attractions.

Chula Vista guests can sit out balconies overlooking the waterway that carved the famous Dells, float the day away in an outdoor wave pool nestled beneath Norway pines or soak in romantic whirlpool outside the spa. Kids can ride the world's largest indoor water coaster, then plunge down one of the tallest cyclone slides.

Another caveat is being able to leave the car in the parking lot. You can hop a
... more boat tour from Chula Vista's docks or grab water shuttles to downtown for more dining and shopping.

When night rolls around, it's a peaceful time to stroll the resort's River Walk, go out to eat and settle into the jungle-themed theater for Jeremy Allen's Grand Illusions show with magic, comedy and white tigers.

Chula Vista's South American influences inspired its water park's jungle theme and the warm colors shades of red and gold in guest rooms. They seem most fitting in the fall when those same colors can be seen in the trees along the riverbanks.

Chula Vista has been around for at least 60 years, but it has kept up with the area's largest resorts by investing more than $200 million into expanding accommodations, building the water park, adding restaurants and revamping its 18-hole golf course since 2006. It also added a large sports complex, which brings teams from across the country here. less

Chula Vista offers 620 guestrooms, including hotel rooms, suites, villas and condos.

Standard room amenities include microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, flat-screen TV and coffee makers. Upgrades can include junior suites, with a semi-private living area and options such as fireplaces, balconies and whirlpools. There also are some themed fantasy suites with pirate, Outer Space, African and Wild West decor. Kids will probably like the Wild West covered wagon twin beds or funky lighting by the outer space whirlpool the best.

There are 220 condos that offer guests the convenience of being at home with kitchens, living areas, balconies and laundry. They come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts that can ... more sleep up to 12 people. Villas, loft villas and family villas sleep six to eight people and overlook the Cold Water Canyon Golf Course. They're best for adults or teens because they are stand-alone buildings and do not connect to the waterparks. less

Worst Service Ever!

Bad signage throughout, both exterior and interior. In the pool area, lifeguards were chatting with each other and inattentive to people. The lady who handed out towels before we got into the pool area could care less, just ... more

Chula Vista boasts about their large indoor watermark, BUT when we got there it was so small that there was no room to sit and relax! Awful! The room we checked into our room and it was clearly not cleaned because there were ... more
