ALWAYS A GREAT TIME @ CHULA VISTA
My husband & I went to Chula Vista with another adult couple for the 3rd time in less than a year & a half over Labor Day Weekend 2011. Although we haven't actually stayed @ any of the other large waterpark/hotels in the WI Dells area, I'm willing to bet that if I did, I would be disappointed as I ALWAYS leave Chula Vista feeling rested, rejuvenated & ready to go back again asap!! :-) Chula Vista is my favorite "staycation get-away."
I greatly appreciated Max's help when we checked into our room on Fri, Sept 2, 2011. He immediately gave me a room upgrade upon my checking in, which I greatly, greatly, appreciated. You rock, MAX!! I think the landscaping & the grounds @ Chula Vista are absolutely beautiful. We loved our balcony view of the WI River & that is where we spent most of our time while we were in our room. We love going for long walks on the grounds there in the early morning hours & in the evening. I love the underground tunnel they have so you never have to leave the hotel (especially in the Winter or when it's raining) to move about to different area's of the hotel. I'm glad they have a bar in the hotel, so you don't have to leave the grounds to go enjoy a drink someplace other than just your hotel room. I think most of the interactions I've had with the staff during my last 3 stays at Chula Vista have overall been pleasant. The rooms have always been clean & nicely decorated.
Suggestions/Changes you might want to consider:
1. Have MUSIC piped throughout the entire resort (Bar, outside waterpark, indoor waterpark, hallways, elevators, wave pool & especially by the Hot Springs Hot Tub) maybe Country &/or Top 40
2. Have the Hot Springs Hot Tub open until Midnight for sure...do NOT close it @ 10pm that is nuts!! Enforce that you must be 16 & OVER in the Hot Tub. This should be the one place for ADULTS to escape for peace & quiet away from kids while having a drink & relaxing in the Hot Tub or sitting by the fire near the Hot Tub!!
3. Make HUGE Poster Boards in each of the Hotel Check-in area's stating that you have FREE Volleyball, FREE ShuffleBoard & FREE miniture Golf & FREE WiFi (right??).
4. Make HUGE Poster Boards in all Hotel Check-in area's letting people know about what events they can catch right from Chula Vista's boat dock itself. Also let people know that the ducks riding around in the Chula Vista Parking Lot are FREE to get to Downtown Dells & back.
These things are like a well kept secret around Chula Vista. These are all considered to be PERK's so make these things well advertised, so everyone knows what Chula Vista really has to offer!! Better MARKETING strategies.....
If I can work out a really GREAT room rate.....I hope to be back to Chula Vista for my 4th stay, real soon. Thank you for all of your hospitality. We hope to see you again soon!! :-)
