Villa Saturnina
Ranked #60 of 195 Puerto Princesa B&B and Inns
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Have been to Puerto several times before but it was my first time to visit with my wife and 2 kids. Villa Saturnina provided great value accommodations as an alternative to pricey hotels. It is very convenient for the Honda Bay tour, as it is within walking distance of the wharf. Snorkeling gear rentals are practically next door if you need gear. Sam, the owner and our host, was very friendly and helpful. He drove us around and even hosted a special dinner for us on our last night. Family vacations are always memorable but become even more so when you get to make good friends where you go. Thank you for warm hospitality!

Villa Saturnina is the best place to stay in Puerto Princesa if you need to relax and get away from the hustle-bustle of the city. It is conveniently located near Honda Bay, hence easy access to island hoping! The owners are very friendly and accommodating; they would definitely go the extra mile to ensure that guests are comfortable and relaxed all throughout their stay. Staying in Villa Saturnina felt like being at home with family. I will definitely be coming back soon.

Thanks for the positive review, Rej. It is our goal to ensure that all our guests feel at home by providing personalized service at every turn. This, I believe, sets us apart from other inns and hotels.

I've been to Puerto Princesa twice but my stay in Villa Saturnina was very relaxing. It was just what I needed for a time off. Very affordable accommodation and the staff were very friendly. The owner was very hospitable and will make you feel like you are at home. Not to mention that he's a very good singer :) There was also a time during my stay there, that I didn't even wanted to go out and just enjoy the ambience and feel how peaceful the place was. I will definitely go back and bring my family with me.

Hi Cristine,

Glad you enjoyed your stay. Not sure why the "good singer" part got in there, but thanks! See you again soon

Best Thanksgiving Vacation thanks to Villa Saturnina! The place is very cozy, and convenient for travellers. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are kept clean with very comfortable beds. The place is about 3 minutes away from the port if you want to experience a fun filled island hopping tour. Definitely a place I would want to visit again!

Most of our guests are surprised at how accessible the Honda Bay islands are from our location. This is actually one of our strongest selling points. Beach lovers can go island hopping on a daily basis if they wish to, at minimal cost! Thanks for the positive comments, Misyel.

my friends and i stayed at Villa Saturnina last month and it was the best decision we made! the hotel is a few meters away from the honda bay wharf and we were able to get great deals on the island hopping (about 500 per head)... sooo much cheaper than what another hotel offered us (1300 per head!).

the owners were also very warm and they took care of everything. sam even went out with us and took us around town. talk about making their guests welcome! every detail was planned perfectly and we were able to see sights that are not covered by the usual guided tours. it felt like we were visiting a friend.

thanks for the wonderful memories and hope to be back next year!

Thank you for this comprehensive review of our place... when we started dreaming about this bed and breakfast, the goal was to veer away from being a "regular" inn by focusing on making guests feel at home. We always try to build relationships by making our guests feel that they are staying with family. Hope to see you again soon!
