Hotel Manor Round Lake Abrau Durso

Hotel-estate “Round Lake” is located in a very beautiful valley surrounded by mountains. There is fresh mountain air, almost no wind, warm and sunny.

Also here you can visit numerous cafes, restaurants, a park and admire the fountain with lighting. Nearby there are wild beaches of the coast, where young girls love to sunbathe. Around beautiful nature, horses and romantic sunsets in the evenings.

Marina V writes a review: “large comfortable rooms, blackout curtains, wide beds with elastic mattresses. There is a decent swimming pool, gazebos for companies and kebabs. Food is poorly organized: not all dishes from the menu are available, for a long time the return of dishes due to lack of staff. But the village is full of cafes and restaurants with delivery. The hotel offers ample parking, a free shuttle bus to the beach and horse riding. The territory is beautifully groomed: many flowers, bushes, lawns and a living corner. Overall, I liked it.”
