Good choice, but eat elsewhere if you’re vegetarian”
A short ride from Coron town proper, it’s a good place to stay far from the hustle and bustle and close enough to get a tricycle ride into town to grab a bite or go on a tour. A very personal remark but it seems pretty current in the Philippines: the restaurant has very little vegetarian options and the breakfast buffet was also limited with regards to our preferences.
Everything was amazing from the sunsets at the infinity pool to the comfy beds. Our only complaints were very limited wifi and water pressure issues which came and went. This could be a big issue for some but it didn’t phase us too much.
Great pool and sunset views”
We stayed 3 nights at the Doublegem in one of their Forest Rooms. These are located across the street from the main complex but are very nice rooms. It would have been nice to have one of their ocean/pool view rooms but maybe next time. The room was well appointed and had comfy beds and a nice hot shower. On our first day we had to remind them to make up the room. We also noticed that they didn’t replenish the coffee supplies after the first day nor did they refill the room water bottle or toilet paper stock. Certainly not a deal breaker but small attention to details make a place outstanding and they need some improvement in their housekeeping. Their pool is wonderful and we lounged around it for a whole day. The complimentary breakfast was a nice buffet with a pancake and egg station and of course endless cups of coffee. We also booked 2 tours through their front desk and we satisfied with their service. Doublegem is a nice place to relax and unwind.
Dear Guest, Thanks so much for taking time to write a review about your stay in our hotel we appreciate it a lot. Hope to have you again here in Doublegem, Cheers!
Overpriced, but otherwise good”
We've stayed in similar quality hotels with beachfront locations all over S.E.Asia for consistently about 50% less cost. So Doublegem is horribly overpriced ... but then, so is all of El Nido it seems. Aside from the extremely poor value for money, it is one of the best options in El Nido, so if you're happy to pay for it, then it's a good choice. The view and location is outstanding. The restaurant serves reasonably good food (by Palawan's standards anyway), the staff are excellent (which is not common in Palawan), the pool is great and the rooms are simple but fine.
Highly Recommended when staying in El Nido. The price of the hotel per room is worth it. Positive side: Clean rooms,approachable staff,good pool, nice view for sunset and sunrise and the best breakfast buffet. Quality and Service at its finest.👌 Suggestion: Pls make sure the public toilet functional ALWAYS especially its water supply.
Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to write a review about your recent stay with us. We appreciate it a lot. Hope to have you again here in Doublegem. Thank you and Cheers!!!! More power!
Forest views room is a rift off. There’s no forest to look at. Ants are all over the place. Noisy!”
Food sucks in the buffet and in the restaurant. There’s nowhere in the website that says you have to cross the street to get to the building. The yard is without grass. There’s only dirt. Doublegem Beach Resort should be paying me and my family to stay at Forest view room. We’re very unhappy.
Best mid range hotel in El Nido ”
Great places restaurant but the menu is not so good Need chef Not cooks If better choice of dishes then 4 star
Good for traveling with group of friends”
Our group have booked a family suite with three double beds and us in another triple room, but didn't aware that they located in two different buildings until we arrived. The staff was kind enough to help us changex our room into another room facing the sea so that we could be together.
Dear guest, Thank you for staying with us,
This beach hotel is just nice if you want to have a relaxing holiday. Sunset is just right to the beach area. It a bit pricey but I think it reasonable
A real gem. ”
Although Doublegem is not a 5 Star-type hotel, all the hotel staff gave us a 5 star treatment—from the housekeeping and receptionists, to the restaurant service workers, and even the manager Maria. Great value for the money. The rooms were clean, quiet, and comfortable. This ocean front resort gives you a breathtaking view of the waters, specially during sunset, giving you the most authentic feel of an island paradise vacation without breaking the bank. Awesome restaurant and bar. The buy-one-get-one drink during happy hour is a plus. Their mouth-watering, stone fire Doublegem Pizza is a must try. We will definitely go back and stay at Doublegem.
Dear guest Joel, We're very thankful for your heartwarming feedback to us, we really appreciate it a lot, Can't wait to serve you again and can't wait to see you again, Thank you! Cheers!
Toilet not draining properly”
The place is perfect specially the sunset view. The only let down is the toilet in our cottage was not draining properly for the whole duration of our stay which was 5 days and 4 nights. We already talked to the staff and they said that they weren't able to fix it yet because that particular room (Green Cottage Beach Front) is always booked. To the management please make sure everything is working properly before accepting any reservations.
Hi Kristoffer, There has been a little misunderstanding about your situation here and we are a bit sad to read this writing about your experience. We will do our best to make our guests happy and we have maintenance there that will able to help you. We will talk our staff regarding this matter. Thanks for staying with us,. hope to have you again here in future.
Book the pool facing rooms - everything else is super noisy.”
This is a good ‘stop over’ hotel, I would recommend staying for long periods. My friend and I stayed two nights in there beach villa - there not beach villa, they are right on the road and you can hear the traffic going by all night. Staff were also random, for example, randomly starting a massive fire so all our villa rooms filled up with smoke? Pointed this out to the staff and they did nothing. The pool and bar are nice, foods great (not breakfast) and be location is also great.
The hotel is on the main road in the middle of El Nido. I had to cross the road to get to the main building several times a day with my young kids (which is not convenient). The hotel is rather crowded and is always busy. Rooms next to the reception are noisy. My room had no view and was dark. The swimming pool is really nice and kid-friendly. However, the breakfast is very disappointing (cold, not much choice). However, it may still be considered as a good hotel compared to the other ones in El Nido. I was disappointed by El Nido as a whole (the season was also not the right one (December)). There must be much better location in the Philippines.

There was cockroach in the room. Lizards and some unknown creature. They arranged are transport and the van dropped us mid way saying a connecting van will pick us which dint come. I had my 3yr old daughter and we were in the sun for 2 hours. I did my private cab and while loading bag realised 1 bag was missed in the van. We asked the hotel to assist on both occasions but upon several calls made no help was provided. If u want a good decent hotel this is a total NO
Dear Amit, Regarding to your van transfer to sabang, we did everything to help you to arranged the van transfer to sabang, we did offer them private van it will be easy for you to reach your hotel in sabang, but you refuse it, because you said it too expensive, so we booked for sharing, and we already informed you that if you booked for sharing it is a connecting van, so when you will be drop in salvacion(junction) and another van from Puerto princesa will pick you up to sabang, because there is no direct transfer from El nido-Sabang and the van from puerto princesa city come, but you don't want to take a ride with this van, because you want to seat in the backseat of the driver, but this is not possible, because somebody already seated in that raw, from puerto princesa city, then you refuse that van, but the van was what we booked , so they are waiting for nothing.
Hidden gem, with great views ”
The rooms were really clean, although small. The hotel has one of the nicest views in El Nido. The amenities were good. staff were extremely helpful and organised tours for us easily. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting El Nido.
Dear Guest, Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback, we appreciate it a lot, Rest assured that we will do our best to enjoy stay of our guests, thanks so much, hope to have you again in Doublegem. Regards. Eva
Much better than I was expecting”
The staff were so lovely and very helpful. The photos don't do it justice, the hotel was clean, not too far from the town and close enough to las cabanas beach. The pool is great and the sun sets right in front of the hotel, its beautiful! They also do a better breakfast than I was expecting (pancakes and egg station was the best) although the food at the restaurant at lunch and dinner is not that good. I would definitely recommend staying here and so would the 4 other girl friends I was travelling with!
Dear guest Jaqui, Thank you for your heartwarming feedback to us, hope to have you again here in Doublegem,.
Large Family room”
The room was outdated with a really bad smell, but the real problem was that was full of cockroaches. When asked to change room, i was told that the hotel was full. The staff didn't want to book me to another hotel, because "they didn't had money to pay". There is no wifi in any room and the signal is extremely poor. The hotel is overpriced and definitely doesn't worth it. While waiting at the reception trying to find a solution, another person told me that he was also having problems with his room and there were many people during the day complaining. In this couple of hours of waiting i found out of a few more cases from other guests: - No hot water in the room - No cold water in the room (only hot) - Another case with cockroaches - Mice Do yourself a favor. Find another place to stay and avoid all the hassle. If you want to get the same level of services/experience go to a hostel in El nido and you'll only pay a fraction of the price.
Rooms over priced for what you get. Disappointed they put a family with a young child on the other side of a busy road to all the children's activities. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast had more flies enjoying the food than guests, options never changed from day to day.
Fantastic location and the swimming pool is the best. ”
The food and the restaurant is not the best they need to add bit more on them menu in not much food to choice .
Incredible views with huge comfy beds. Loved our stay!”
The staff made us feel so at home. This location is nice and quiet but close to the hustle of El Nido. The water isn’t so swimable but gorgeous to looks at and the pool is perfect for a dip after a long day of island tours.
Dear Guest, Thanks for your feedback to us, we would be delighted to have you again here in Doublegem.
