Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Elewa is a really kind man who works at Acient Sands. He is really good at his job. Every day we come back from a relaxing day at the pool or beach, and each time he knows how to surprise us with a really clean room. He makes the bed like a champion. Thanks for your service. :)

Coming to the end of a fab chilled out 2 weeks at this lovely hotel. This has been our first ever visit to Egypt and the Red Sea area is perfect for an escape from the UK winter weather. Most days have been sunny and mid 20’s, no rain and little cloud. Evenings have been a little chilly especially with the breezy conditions. Ancient Sands is a beautiful hotel, our room was large, modern and airy and always immaculately clean. The pools are lovely, 3 are heated and 1 of those has a pool bar with waiter service. The golf course is beautiful and we availed ourselves of an Introduction to Golf session as well as a session on the driving range. Will definitely build on this as a hobby. Food in the buffet restaurant is good, not a massive restaurant but plenty of choice. The hotel has a free shuttle to the private beach which is has a bar and is part of the AI. Be aware there is lots of construction going on both at the hotel and in El Gouna, but nothing that spoilt our stay. Finally it is the staff that truly elevate this hotel - every single one is a credit to the hotel and each have contributed to our very enjoyable stay, thank you

Very nice Hotel, view, area and very nice Service. Tarek did very well with house keeping. Everyone asked if I need something. You can eat all the time and I can really recommend to take the shuttle to private beach. It so quiet and you get drinks and snacks whenever you want.

Already the seventh time in El Gouna and the fourth in Ancient Sands. What shall I say? It already feels like coming home to a family. The staff is as usual very lovely, helpful and kind (especially Khadija and Kirolos) and the food is awesome. Rooms are big and very clean. See you again in April!
