However, in the reviews about Incekum Beach Resort 5 * you can find a lot of negative points. The accumulation of people at a meal was disappointingly, tables and empty seats could not be found literally a couple of minutes after the opening of the restaurant. Behind fresh strawberries the crush is constant, the meat that was fried on the street was cooked in old oil. On the beach you could get tasty waffles, but each batch prepared slowly for 10 minutes, so you had to wait a long time for your sugary portion.
People wrote negative reviews and about the second restaurant A la carte, to sign up for dinner in which it was simply unrealistic difficult. And when tourists finally come by appointment, it turns out that half of the tables are free, dinner is nothing special, and the atmosphere of the evening was overshadowed by terrible stuffiness and boredom.
Wi-Fi only catches the signal in the lobby area, in the evenings there is always full of people who want to chat with their relatives on the Internet. According to reviews of tourists, all the soft seats are often occupied, and some correspond by standing or sitting on the steps of the stairs.
The work of animators is assessed differently, some write delightful reviews, I liked everything, funny discos in the evenings, gymnastics in the pool in the mornings, contests and children's competitions. Others write that entertainment is boring and uninteresting. I think that everything depends on the mood and age of the tourist who came to rest. How many people, so many different opinions.
For lovers of outdoor activities there is an excellent fitness room, sports fields, billiards, on the beach a lot of water activities, but for a fee.
Many people liked the SPA center with sauna and hammam. Massage can be done for cash. If you need a nanny for a child, then you will also sit with the baby for a fee.
