Reviewed 21 February 2013

Kuya Sam, Kuya Juny, Tatay, Kuya Joel and Toy was so friendly and accommodating (Pinoy na Pinoy sa hospitality) and I'm so thankful for that. Staying at Villa Saturnina is like staying at your own place, the food is good, The Place is excellent and the best thing is near at Honda Bay (walking distance). Me and my girlfriend decided to go to Palawan days before we noticed Kuya Sam, Kuya Sam processed our Underground River in a very short time (Soooooooo thankful). Satisfied with the service they gave us and the hospitality is like they treated us like one of they're FAMILY. If you'll going to Puerto Princesa make sure to go to this Villa and you'll know what I'm saying. Once again thank you... To those people who wants to go to Puerto Princesa, I recommended this Villa and I'll recommend this place to my family, relatives and friends.. Thank you once again.

Me and my foreign friends (Radek, Mariano, Evgeniya, Hara) went for a trip around Philippines. Of all the places we have stayed, nothing beats "Villa Saturnina". The room is just perfect. It's clean and well organized. The garden is surrounded with trees and beautiful flowers which makes it a good place to relax after a long and fun day of island hopping. It's also a place to chat with friends while having barbecue. The dining area was excellent; very native. We had fun enjoying the palatable dishes they have prepared. We all ate in the long table that feels like one big family and we had KTV after that. Above all these, are the very accommodating stuff, specially the owner Sam, who attended to our every needs. Me and my foreign friends enjoyed the place a lot for it's very affordable and a perfect place to relax and have fun at the same time. To STAY in is to BELIEVE. ;)

Villa Saturnina is a really good place to stay in. Everybody's so friendly and accommodating. Even though I and my boyfriend went there at such a short notice, Sam and the rest of the crew really did there best to get us a slot for the Underground River tour. I would totally recommend this place to my friends. :)

The owner, firstly, accommodated us at such a short notice. And because of this short notice, there was no guarantee of getting a spot for the Underground River tour. My husband and I only had the one day to make this tour. But Sam bent over backwards and did the best that he could to get us in the tour and he did! All members of the family were approachable and accommodating. The room was nice and clean and so was the bathroom. The location was a bit far from the city centre, which added to its appeal in a way, as it's far from the hustle & bustle of the city. However, places to go to for dinner is a bit limited due to the distance. But then again, you can pre-arrange dinner, with advance notice. Overall, a good place to stay.

Me and my wife really love the place. The place is nothing fancy but certainly is a home away from home. What I love about Villa Saturnina is the friendly and hospitable owner. I also like the ambiance of the place. It reminds me of rural Philippines. The place is within the city but is fortunately far from the sounds of downtown Puerto Princesa. It is very affordable. The owner also cares a lot. He makes sure that you enjoy your stay. It is the place to be when in Puerto Princesa.
