Hi.
I travel cebu bohol panglao and Neros alone often and never had any problems there, i know a few tagalog words a phrases but not enough and the visayas they speak visayan mostly anyway.
North Luzon is also beautiful and plenty to see but I prefer the visayas. I have not been to Palawan as yet bit it is on my list very soon
The only place I had some problems was manila with the taxis so yes if you can book your first night in advance with hotel transfer it will save you a lot of worries at the airport in cebu or manila
You say you your grand parents are filipino then you probably will not look like a total foreigner here and you will not have half the problems us foreigners have.
What activities are you in to? Party, Scuba diving, snorkeling, surfing, hiking or just beaches, waterfalls and sightseeing?
When are you comming down? Rainy season and the typhoons should be finished for the year.

Don't know what area of Bicol you are considering visiting. The area of Bicol that I go to and visit is the sorsogon region as this is where my wife is from and we have built a house there. (sorsogon city) the province has wonderful beaches and a beautiful hot spring resort in the town of irson. the people are friendly an happy. I go to the market, stores and reausterants regally by myself and have never had any problems. treat them with respect and you will get the same in return.
we will be arriving there in a couple of weeks for a month visit we are so looking foward to are return there.
on another note are 5 BB Boxes have been recieved at the house without any issues. Just driving wife sister crazy with anticipation because she can't get into them LOL>>>
