the room was spacious and clean and i love that we have our own little terrace or space outside the door.. the WiFi is a bit slow though and we cannot access it if we were in the room but overall we were happy and if we are going back we would love to stay here again.

Affordable and clean”
We stayed there for 2 nights. Location is very close to the port and town centre just 5-10 mins walk. They provide free coffee and tea for breakfast. You can get drinking water refill from their fridge at their cafe for free, so you dont have to buy water bottle everytime you are out. Hot water is also available at all time upon request. Their staff was very nice and attentive. However, the water pressure is a bit low for the shower but is was ok coz we can use water collected in the pail. Bathroom will be flooded after shower, so i think they need to do some maintenance with the water outlet.

The BEST! It was a perfect choice.”
I love the location of Ricgem. It is within palawan town proper.. a few blocks away from the main road of restos. A good spot because you are away from all the noise of the street yet it is near if you want to go around town and eat or drink. The price is cheap and the rooms are decent, clean.. we were mostly outside anyway bcoz of the tours so its great for the price. We only stay in the room to sleep. Plus they offer the best TOUR in my opinion. They have their own boats for island hopping tours. So u can just ask the staff about the pckages. The tour guides are so fun and professional. The staff of the hotel are nice and courteous. Breakfast is only 100 and unli coffee in the morning! Will definitely book again.

Free Coffee or Tea for Breakfast”
The room quite fits the price. We really like the beddings because it was very cute (pastel colors). We also love the fact that the coffee and tea were complimentary every breakfast. The hotel is indeed located 5mins away from the beach. By that we mean, no shorelines, no waves to hear and also no noisy bars to endure if you want to sleep early. It is a matter of priority. We would have loved better being near the shore though. Overall, it was a nice stay. Clean room and everything was functioning.

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.

No signboard lead to the building.”
About 7mins walk to the centre town area. A bit hard to find in the first place as no signboard leading to the building. Please take note the road is next to the bank. Cleanliness was ok, do not expect much on this type of accom. Staff was ok too. Cold shower and there were 2 disruptions during our 2 nights stay.

Great location to stay in el nido, near the beach. The staff are super nice specially ate claire who help us on tour activities. On our last nights to their place, we decided to go back on puerto princesa to experience the underground river. Ate claire even help us to book a hotel and arrange our tour for UG river. We defenitely recommend their plcae to our friends

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

It’s at the farther end of town, but since it is a small town, all’s okay. Don’t expect too much. Nothing fancy, basic sleeping quarters.

- has generator during brown outs - clean room but the sheets and beddings are quite smelly - very affordable island hopping tours. i had my tour A and C for just 2000php. Other agencies offer these tours for 1200php - 1500php each. - can accomodate van transfers from puerto to el nido and vice versa for just 1000php round trip - has very funny tour guides: kudos to kuya albert, jomari and rovel. Kuya jomari even accompanied me to las cabanas beach haha - for solo travelers like me, book a double standard room :) it's spacious enough and comfortable - no luck for wifi but it doesnt matter I will definitely stay here again next year

Budget place to sleep while you are out the whole day”
This place is value for money. Ok place to sleep after a tiring day from you day tour activities. A short walk from everywhere. Everything was as expected and as declared. They arranged our land tours with a very friendly and helpful tricycle driver. We were happy at the end of the day. The only thing is they hardly answer your email and text inquiries.

The place is within town proper, it's walking distance to almost everywhere in town like restos, bars, mini groceries store, agencies. The breakfast is good and staffs are helpful and accomodating. They give free hot drinks every morning. Booked our stay thru Agoda and everything went well. We got a room for 2 with double sized bed, restroom without hot water, AC and a flat screen tv.

bed was comfortable, room was good, a bit on small side and air con worked, but ceiling fan not wired in as the premises are still in final renovation, rebuild state. A common fridge for guests would be useful. Shower was good and balcony was great. No breakfast available but a short trike ride to town for all meals was okay. Wifi was good, but TV channel selection was limited to 3x local channels. Overall a very good stay and staff were very accommodation despite the language difficulties.

Clean rooms, great location! ”
Right in the heart of the town, access to all shops and two minute walk from the beach. Our ground floor room which we requested had a very good connection to wifi which is hard to find in El Nido. It is very clean as they ask everybody to remove shoes before entry. Bring earplugs as the town operates early in the morning. Good standard accommodation for The Phillipines.
