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!
