We booked the hotel as it had a villa with private pool which was what We needed for our family but I don’t think it would’ve been considered family friendly if we had rooms reserved as in general the hotel has a very relaxing aesthetic but would recommend it for couples. Also, everyone at the reception and restaurant were so helpful and friendly and could speak multiple languages as well but unfortunately the restaurant could have had better food and more variety, would recommend having your stay breakfast only basis or without food. The beach is available to go to by shuttle and is very nice and was not rocky and had some fish and little crabs which amused the little kid. There were 5 pools at the hotel, I have visited two of them and were really nice, the golf looked cool but I didn’t try it. Overall, would recommend it and would most likely visit again.

Ancient Sands is our choice every time we visit el Gouna. Free Access to Marina Beach - The beach is very nice and clean. We booked the apartment with two bedrooms and its perfect for a family. At the beginning we chose the townhouse but we didn't like it as it was not cozy and the staff worked hard to find us another alternative despite the hotel was very busy and almost fully booked. Special Thanks to Abanob at the reception.

This is actually my 4th time to visit this hotel, and the reason of the repetitive visits is the overall all atmosphere, quiet fancy place, good food and friendly staff, however it’s worth mentioning that during this stay I discovered lots of improvement, as a start the hotel opened a well equipped gym which is something that I was really missing in majority of the hotels, further more a new spa was open, which saved me the hassle of searching outside for a massage treatment, they also changed the program of the restaurant to break the routine by selecting 2 days a week to dine in an open area with some light entertainment. Love the overall changes and will definitely come back.

Quality of service was 5 stars, staff were very nice and helpful. The Villa was very nice and clean, and view is magnificent from the pool and the terrace. Only problem with the pool was it did not have enough sun so by afternoon it gets a bit cold but wasn't a big issue for us.

This was our third study at Ancient Sands this year, and my son and I were both really looking forward to going back. We were not disappointed. Our junior suite/apartment overlooking the piazza was well appointed and very comfortable. We stayed on an all inclusive package which was very reasonable. Food, drink and service from all staff was superb. My son looked forward to killer darts with the animation team each morning. The pool areas were always clean and it was usually easy to find a sun-lounger for the day at one of the five swimming pools. However, it did appear that some beds were being reserved and not being used up to 2.5 hours later which was annoying. We did look forward to the themed evening meals where there was as great deal of choice. Thank you to the following staff who made our holiday so memorable: Mina, Andrew, Magdy, Shaban, Tito chef Mostafa, chef Ibrahim, Zain, and the kind ‘top chef’ who wore a grey uniform for his kindness in offering to get me some mint when I wasn’t feeling too good on our penultimate day. Hoping we will be back to experience your amazing hospitality again soon.
