“Great location, good service, new hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is located in Corong-Corong, about a ten-minute tricycle ride from the town of El Nido. This area is quiet and not crowded at all. You get to enjoy El Nido more because you come home to a quiet and nice place, versus the small/cramped and often noisy hotels in the town. Service was great as the team, headed by JM, made sure all our needs were attended to. JM even offered to buy us essential things as we travelled with kids, who needed fresh milk. Breakfast was limited but it was good enough. The rooms are new, clean and spacious. I would recommend the rooms fronting the beach (except room 1 which is at the G/F, as this is right in front of the main entrance and tends to be noisy). I think rooms 5 and 9 were the beach front rooms. If you don't get any of these rooms, you can still get some view from rooms 6 and 7(2/F) or 10 and 11 (3/F).

There is some construction going on in the hotel as they are building more rooms and a restaurant at the beach front. Right now, the hotel sits by the road (and not along the beach) so you'd have to cross the road to get to the beach, although the beach is really just a few meters away and they also own the property right along the beach. At 5pm, you can laze in one of their hammocks and wait for the sunset. They also plan to put up a resto by the beach, which is great as the view from their property is superb!

Cable TV had several channels to choose from so you could sit back and relax after a long boat tour. The bathroom was clean and they had hot water. Towels and basic toiletries were provided by the hotel.

As we went home, everyone at the resort helped us with our luggage and sent us off. We will definitely return to Double Gem!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

Due to rescheduling at my other hotel I got to spend a night at Doublegem. I was warmly greeted by all the staff. The owners were wonderful hosts and they took time to talk to all their guests. Their website does not show their proximity to the beach which is actually really close. It is located at one of the best spots to watch the beautiful sunsets on the island. They have a designated area across the road from hotel right on the beach for sun loungers. The room I stayed in (room 1) was large, clean and the bed was really comfortable. I believe Doublegem will be one of the nicest places to stay in Corong Corong in a few months times after they finish their expansion to build a pool which would be a real bonus in the area as the beach has very shallow water and not really good for swimming.

I really enjoyed my stay in this resort. Their rooms are great. Its white color walls makes my stay very refreshing which makes me want to sleep and relax after a tiring day of island tours. The staff are very accommodating and friendly. Breakfast is property served. I will recommend doublegem to my friends who wants to visit El Nido.
