              Its more than what you pay for”

              I made the right choice with Ricgem. The room was clean and spacious enough for 2 people. I also liked that the place is accessible to town but not located in the noisier part of it. The food is also great. We booked our tour with Ricgem and the tour crew were very optimistic. The food included on the tour were more than great. Plus i got a good discount upon booking. Overall the stay was nothing but AMAZING. i will be back in El Nido, and without a doubt, I will still choose Ricgem as my choice of stay.

              There’s a grocery store near the it. The room was spacious and clean. There’s a table and chairs in the balcony where you can hangout if there’s no electricity. Which happens often in El Nido but no worries the hotel has a generator. The tv is working good. The staffs were very accommodating. Our tour ends in the afternoon and our check out time was 12pm. We left our bags on the lobby and they still let us use the bathroom after the tour.

              Good place to stay at El Nido”

              Ricgem Place is a no nonsense place to stay in El nido. It is steps away from the main streets and is just far away enough to get a peaceful night's rest. Ricgem is also very close to a cell tower so I got excellent reception which is pretty hard to find in El Nido. Wifi is a bit shaky but you're in El Nido, you're trying to get away from everything. Ricgem place is not for travelers looking for a luxurious stay. The staff were kind and very helpful too. I had water damage to my phone and the staff gave me a case with dry rice to help dry my phone. My stay at Ricgem was very pleasant and I would recommend to travellers looking for a no nonsense place to stay.

              perfect spot!”

              this place is highly recommended! sir ric and his staff were very accommodating and welcoming to all his guests. they also offer tour packages with reasonable price and our tour guide, kuya jay was very kind to assist us in all our needs during the island tour. food also during the tour was great. we really had fun in el nido! (we even extended our stay and breached our itinerary). the location was very near in everything, just a minute walk and you will reach the beach side where all the "gimmicks" were located - souvenir shops, bars, restaurants. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! WILL DEFINITELY COME BACK!

              This place got everything! You can book your transfer from the airport to El Nido and vice versa, to your tours in area (of course everything is not free). Even though other agencies says that the tour slots are already full on a certain tour, do not hesitate to approach the staff of this place for one. And on top of that, the owner of the place is really hands-on and very approachable! We highly recommend this place.

              - Clean room upon arrival. The place is generally clean and orderly. (Just note that the room is not cleaned everyday.) - Good water pressure. They have water tank, but it is possible to run out of water when there are too many people using at the same time. Would need to wait 30-45 mins for the water tank to refill. - They have clothesline outside for hanging wet clothes. - Wifi available only at the lounge area. Good internet speed. - Good location. Just walking distance away from restaurants and stores. - Helpful staff. - No tea at breakfast, just coffee. - A bad thing we experienced during our stay here is that we weren’t able to get a tour on our 3rd day despite informing them months in advance. (Though it might be just the overall ineffiency of how tours are arranged in El Nido in general.)

              Location is walking distance from the beach. Room was okay. But the aircon needs some cleaning. The Place overall is clean. It has free coffee in the morning too. I just wish the wifi isnt limited go the reception area. Overall we had a great stay.

              A Good Place to stay , will come back again”

              I can say that RICGEM is a good place to stay in EL NIDO. First, the place is convenient , close to the center of El Nido where you can by foods and can visit the shore anytime. Secondly, the place is clean and quite, we had a room for 4 and it was clean towels are provided comfort room are also clean and shower and heater is also working, quite because we never experience excessive noise in our stay. Thirdly, Staffs are accommodating and easy to approach. Maybe the Cons was our room TV has no Remote control and there is a BEE in our room who welcome us, But as a whole its good and will choose it again when we are to visit again in EL Nido.

              If u go by yourself to this place you might get lost as the place located at the back of small alley with no proper signage to guide u. But if u go with tricycle then it should not be a problem. Overall we satisfied with our stay and this place offer cheaper price for island hopping tour compare to others as they also own boats to do the tour with in house tour guide. Staffs are all friendly.
