Very Good

Spacious room, location was accessible in El Nido town we have chosen the right place to stay. Thank you!
The place was clean and staff were accommodating. You get good value of the price you payed for. Location was perfect. And the free coffee was an extra.
I don't understand why this place got good reviews. The room was so small and old. It smelled like a room that hasn't been used in months; I had rashes and bed bug bites all over my body after the first night and there was a cockroach under the bed. the bathroom was so small, it was so hard to move, the staffs were not even friendly, and the location is a bit far from the center. overall, i would not say again at this place, i'd rather pay a bit more money and stay somewhere else.

It's good. The room is clean, with AC and free wifi and just a walking distance to the island hopping tours meeting place. On our checked-out day we still have Tour C, so we checked out early but they were so generous to have let us leave our bags in the vacant room and even use their shower before we headed back to Puerto. Thank you so much. And they have free coffee :)
- Backpacking
Good location and it's awesome to stay in Recgem Place but if the bed can be slightly bigger then the whole trip will be more awesome.Besides, we enjoying the Tour A & C with Recgem 2 boat for 2 days tour, good and friendly tour guide, boat captain, captain assistant and of course delicious food for lunch.
- Family vacation
walking distance to everything good value for money the room is ok for the price but the toilet bowl is clogged during our first day have to use toilet outside. It was taken care only the next day after many follow ups still recommended for the price, location and cheap and tasty breakfast
Their wifi is very slow and the bathroom had an unpleasant smell. Also, their air conditioner was not that cold so we just kept the electric fan on to keep the room cold. One of the things that I liked about Ricgem though is its location. It would only take you 10 minutes to get to the place from the terminal and its quite near El Nido Town where you can find all the restaurants and the beach. Overall, our stay at Ricgem was okay. But I think I'm going to look for other accommodations when I visit El Nido again.
- Romantic Vacation
Clean and safe location. A bit noise can be heard inside the room. Aircon is very noisy, at least in the room assigned to us.
- Backpacking
Well, Ricgem is good enough to stay for those who come with low budget. It is near the beach, the airport pick up and tour package are cheap, very affordable. Unfortunately, the WiFi connection is bad.
- Backpacking
Ricgem Place was ideally located at the heart of El Nido and is very accessible. The room, though it was smaller than expected, was very clean and had the basic amenities. The owner himself accommodated us and he also took care of our itineraries. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Cozy, comfortable, and affordable, El Nido’s Ricgem Place is the perfect place for backpackers and travelers working on a budget. Aside from its no-frills accommodations, the hotel has a restaurant, free WiFi, and easy access to several city destinations.
