Overview

Praised by Fodor's as one of the Best Family Resorts in the Wisconsin Dells, the Chula Vista Resort is also one of the largest, but still offers "a more laidback resort experience." This full-service destination has everything a family needs for a one-stop vacation, including golf, a spa and multiple dining options.

The variety of rooms at the Chula Vista include standard guest rooms in the Tower building, condos with multiple bedrooms, villa-style family-friendly suites and even a standalone private chalet that sleeps up to 12. Request a room facing the Wisconsin River for the best views of the natural beauty of the Dells, though the Villas along the golf course are plenty scenic as well. 

The massive water park is naturally the biggest draw to Chula Vista. The all-season indoor Lost Rios park features a wading pool for the kids with tons of water activities, waterslides, a lazy river and even an indoor water roller coaster. The outdoor park (open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day) features a wave pool, more waterslides and a sandy beach area. 

Eight different dining options are on site, including a pizzeria, a bar and grill at the outdoor water park, an upscale tavern and Kaminski's Chop House, a classic steakhouse serving all manner of meats from the petite filet to a 70-ounce double prime rib on Saturdays. The Travel Channel says they serve "some of the best cuts in the state"; reserve a window seat for river-view dining. 

The Spa Del Sol is one of Wisconsin's top boutique spas (Milwaukee Magazine) and offers multiple massage options, facials, body treatments and nail services; they also feature a private outdoor hot tub, and guests receive complimentary sparkling wine with treatments. 

Golfers have 18 holes on hand at the Cold Water Canyon course, whose first nine holes date back to 1923. Reviewers at GolfAdvisor award the course 4 stars and OnMilwaukee calls it "a gem" of a course.
