Don't come here if you think you going to have a quiet weekend in the berg...there was a function/party every night of the weekend. Going to bed with the sound of thumping music is not what I expected in such a tranquil setting. Seems they cater more for events and corporate functions. Very disappointing as the resort is beautiful and... More
