Chula Vista Resort in the Wisconsin Dells is one of the largest water parks in the region. In addition to having pools and slides they are also home to the largest indoor water roller coaster.
Escaping to Chula Vista for a few days of relaxing fun was well worth the drive to the Wisconsin Dells.
Our time there went by so quickly during our visit, but we enjoyed every minute of it. From delicious food to a spa visit to fun in the sun everyone enjoyed our mini getaway.
We stayed in a Villa during our visit to Chula Vista and it was perfect. It was a 2 room villa with kitchen, sitting area, and balcony. It was so comfy and gave us all plenty of room to spread out. The beds were incredibly comfy and we all slept very well at night.
A nice bonus to staying in a Villa is that you can prepare meals and snacks in the kitchen to save some money. The Villas over look the golf course and offer a nice relaxing view.
Other accommodations available include hotel room and condos.
The Villas are located right across the street from Chula Vista and is just a short walk over to the water park and resort. If you’re not up for the walk there is a shuttle that runs between the villas and the resort.
There are great dining options at the Resort. In the interest of a good review we tried most of them. Trust me, that was no hardship.
In season, there is Margarita’s Mexican Grill & Cantina by the wave pool with very tasty margaritas and Cactus Bar & Grill at the lagoon is a great option for outdoor drinks and snacks.
Other dining options include: Market Fresh Buffet, Big Moe’s Restaurant, Howler’s Sports Bar, Luigi’s Pizzeria, Market Fresh-To-Go, Crash Landings Snack Bar, and Kaminski’s Chop House. So many options you’ll never get bored.
We visited Margarita’s for drinks and chips which were so very good. The kids loved the non-alcoholic frozen drinks. We also grabbed sandwiches for dinner one night at Market Fresh-To-Go there is a nice selection of sandwiches that even appeased the pickiest of eaters in our group.
The best meal, hands down, was Kaminski’s Chop House where we a delectable meal was enjoyed by all of us. We ordered three different entrees so we could try a variety of their meals.
Shortly, after we placed our order and poured our wine the waitress brought a cart over to create our garbage salads. Now, trust me, it taste much better than it sounds. There are a variety of salad toppings that you select and your waitress tosses it all together and tops it with a garlic cream dressing that is fabulous.
Our entrees did not disappoint. They were huge servings though, you definitely need to consider sharing entrees. Sides are served family style and I think Kaminski’s thought the “family” was a family of 10. Mercy.
We ordered the loaded mashed potatoes to go with our entrees and they were so yummy, but we didn’t even come close to finishing them. No worries though, we grabbed the rest to go and had them for a late breakfast the next morning.
After enjoying a fabulous meal we ordered ONE dessert to go and shared it much later that evening. Another bonus for the Villa, we had a fridge for leftovers.
On our second day at Chula Vista I was treated to a Swedish massage at the spa. The spa is such a relaxing way to spend some quality time with numero uno. The only downside is that the 50 minutes flew by.
It seemed like it was just minutes and it was time to go back to reality. If you have the chance I really recommend making an appointment for some downtown.
Of course, the best part of staying at Chula Vista is their awesome water park. With multiple pools, slides, and rides Chula Vista doesn’t disappoint. Plus, they have the country’s fastest indoor water coaster. I didn’t try the coaster, but I’ve heard it’s great fun.
There are two outdoor water park areas. The first, just off the indoor water park area, features lots of slides, a couple pools, a beach area complete with sand and lounge chairs, bar area, putt-putt golf, hair braiding, and more.
The other outdoor water park is the wave pool area and is located behind the condos and hotel and provides a very pretty view of the river.
The indoor water park houses the coaster, the lazy river, and lots of pools and slides. There is plenty of seating, lockers, towels, and a cafe.
Right next to the water park is the arcade with fun games for all and a cafe. Additional arcade games are located in the underground tunnel between the hotel and the water park. That is where you can also find the 4D theater.
There is so much to do at Chula Vista that two nights is just a taste, but it was two nights filled with lots of fun memories.
