We stayed in one of the town houses at Big Bear Resort. Overall, the townhouse was clean, the kitchen had all major appliances, and the deck was great! All of the staff that we interacted with were friendly and helpful. We will return!

Big Bear Resort was such a wonderful laid-back place to stay. It was the perfect down-home family getaway for my husband and I to do some boating and fishing and just relaxing. I saw a couple of earlier reviews that mentioned the condition of the dock. It was great when we were there. No problems whatsoever and everyone couldn't have... More

No food on site and golf carts are expensive for what shape they are in. needed some items from store and they were closed three days during the week. Staff was really nice but this place needs...

Had a big extended family gathering. Stayed in the condos. Good for all of us to gather outside together and close to docks. Wish there were not golf carts, nicer docks, and a but more modernization in condos, but overall had a good time.

We have been going to Big Bear for about 15-16 years. We love it there!!! We have brought other families there as well, and they love it. Fishing there, has always been good to us. No worries about leaving your stuff out all night either. We got an awesome deal last year when they had all the rain. So worth... More

I have talked several times with Big Bear this year already. I get the rates for several people in our party. At first I called to get good rates for 3 cottages and boat slips for a week. Then I called and got good rates for a Marina Townhouse, boat slip, and a Pontoon boat for a week. I was... More

Just got back from Big Bear. We stayed in Townhouse #2, it cost us around $800 for a 3 night stay. For that kind of money I would have liked wi-fi, more than one 27" tube television, a master suite without holes in the wall, a master bathroom with a clean floor, a sofa comfortable enough to nap on (or...

We are so sorry that your stay was not what you hoped for. The units are not advertised with WiFi but there is WiFi on the property. None of your party came to any of the staff with any complaints so it is very hard for us to address any issues you may have experienced. As we saw you daily... More
