stayed in Villa Saturnina recently. Spartan but cozy accommodation, near Honda Bay wharf (about 30-40 minutes from the airport and town proper).
Sam and his brother Juni were very hospitable and accommodating... the bed in our first room was a bit hard, and Sam transferred us right away to the adjacent room with out any question; and they made sure that arrangements to see the sights of Palawan were fixed. From Villa Saturnina, we got picked up by a van to bring us to Sabang, the Underground River area, as well as for the Island hopping on Honda Bay and the Firefly watching in the mangroves. Breakfasts were basic (hotdog or longganisa and lamayo (fried fish) with 3in1 coffee) in a charming "kubo".
Nearby restos include Viet Ville (which we found to have authentic vietnamese fare), a korean restaurant (which was overpriced).. and if you needed to go to the supermarket or restaurant outlets, Robinsons Mall is a good 30mins buy tricycle (50pesos per person going out of Honda Bay, but 100-150 pesos on return).
Juni picked us up from the airport and drove us back with a stop over at Inato's for packed frozen Lamayo to take home to Manila.
