Ricgem Place is a gem”
Its near the beach where the boats are docked for the island hopping tours and also near restaurantsand grocery stores. The rooms aren't big but enough for a comfy stay at a good price since we basically stayed only at night for sleeping. I suggest this place for those who'd be doing the island hopping tours as you'd mostly stay out anyway.

Room is so small and not clean, toilet bowl is clogged and there are ants in the entire room. Only good thing about this accomodation is their location was very accessible to town, walking distance to beach front (pick-up area for island hopping) and close to pharmacy and convenient store.

The best affordable accomodation in El Nido”
This place is now a lot better :) I also stayed here last year and I can say that when it comes to most affordable accomodation, Ricgem is the best. The owner, Sir Ric, is very friendly and accomodating to his guests. Pros: - Very clean and spacious room. I slept comfortably for my 5 days and 4 nights stay - has a generator. So in case of brown outs, you'll be fine :) - the best lunch/dinner so far and also the cheapest I think. I ordered their sinigang na hipon (shrimp) and i forgot my name after haha. It was just 250php and yet for me its good for 2 people already - cheapest drinks in el nido. Some resto charges 60php for just a small bottle of water. But in here, you'll get the largest for the same price - if you're staying here, ask Ric for Tours A and C. They have the best crew and cheapest tours The only con: wifi is just 100mb per day for everybody

When they asked you to remind them to book you an airport transfer prior to your arrival at the airport don’t bother. You need to call them again and again when you arrived at the pps airport or better —go to the pps terminal going to el nido. Last night in el nido -The a/c in our room automatically shut down past midnight due electricity breaker when power interruption occured in the hotel. When power back up ..no intiative from the hotel staff to turn it back on. When we seek assistance they thought no one is staying in our room 😂. Lastly please inform your staff to have a proper coordination and communication with each other. Overall it was a good stay but dont expect too much.

Paid for an 830 bus to Puerto only to have them switch us to the 1030am bus. There were cockroaches running around the breakfast area disgusting. They also have very bright LED lights outside the room windows so at night time you can't sleep. Very lazy unmotivated staff.

We booked triple room from Feb 24 to 27. It was difficult to get thru their phone line. I called three times on different dates before it got answered. Happy though because the room did not disappoint. Clean, cold AC, cable tv and veranda where we can hang clothes. Water pressure though could be improved, not sure if its same for all of El Nido. We'll book again if I had chance to go back to El Nido.

Room, Location and Staff”
The place is just 5 minutes away from the terminal by motorcycle. Their reception is open 24/7 so we didn’t have to worry about late check in. The room was nice and clean. It has an A/C and an electric fan. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. Coffee and tea are free. They also allow you to wash your own laundry. They can also help you book your tours and your transport back to puerto princesa. Also on our way back to puerto princesa, i forgot to grab my black leather jacket which i hanged on one of their chairs while waiting for the van to arrive. I realized i didnt have it with me only after 2 hours when we were already mid way to puerto princesa. I immediately texted the hotel and asked them for help. Jochelle Ilagan was very helpful. She had my jacket directly delivered to my hotel in puerto princesa. Without additional cost. I’ll be forever grateful to you Jochelle. Kudos to you!!!

The room is clean enough yet small, but it;s understandable in el Nido. Staff is nice and helpful. But the hostel is quite dark, probably the general situation in Elnido as well.

AVOID!!! Terrible experience, dirty, overpriced, overbooked”
The room with balcony we have booked was given to a Philippino family. We were put to hround floor without any balcony or terrace. The receptionist told us either we taky a room or we go. I dont have to say the room was prepaid. There was completely no wish to solve the situation from lazy and unhelpful receptionist. We were put to a very unpleasant situation. In the end we agreed to take a ground floor room. Unfortunately the room in ground floor was very dirty with two spiders on the wall and spider webs. The air was very muddy that one cant even breathe. We took our stuff and had to search for a new acommodation in booked put el nido. The bothered staff didnt even apologise. Now we are dealing with agoda about refund. There are much better and cheaper places in el nido. AVOID at all cost!!!!!!
