It’s a good idea to rent out transportation for the day, leave early in the morning for Mambukal, and then come back in the afternoon/evening. We rented out a jeepney for roughly 2,000 pesos and brought some food to cook. There’s quite a bit to do here at Mambukal, all on cash basis, with relatively low fees. Per the website: Hotel Rooms, Water Falls, Swimming Pools, Function Hall, Therapeutic Warm Dipping Pool, Picnic Huts, Overnight Cottages, Food Court, Bat Watching, Boating, Wall Climbing, Slide for Life, Canopy Walk, and Camping Ground.http://www.mambukalhaven.com/location.htmlFirst we rented one of the picnic huts and started cooking. After we ate, we checked out the water fall, swimming pool, therapeutic warm dipping pool, boating lagoon and bat watching ….Picnic Huts – Nice views with a stand to grill and a sink wash your hands. The water comes directly from the falls.Water Fall – I’d say about it’s about a 30 minute hike to the first waterfall, over uneven ground and a single pipe railing to hold on to. Certainly a workout, I wouldn’t recommend this to the less-adventurous. There are a total of 6 or 7 waterfalls you can hike to, each one a less safe hike than the one before. You should at least hike to the first waterfall, it will be worth the trip. Bat Watching – You can see the bats hanging down from the tall trees in the distance from just about anywhere on the resort. They have specific ‘bat watching’ signs though, on the route to the first waterfall. Boating – You can rent a kayak for 30 minutes to an hour, good for 5 or 6 people per kayak. Life vests and two paddles are provided. Nice lagoon, lots of fun and good exercise. Swimming Pool – Cool water, large pool area. Like any other swimming pool except that this water is from the falls!Therapeutic Warm Dipping Pool – Like a hot shower on a cold day, but in ‘pool’ form. If you’re not used to the hot water just give your body time to adjust and sink lower and lower …. The resort was lots of fun, don’t forget the suntan lotion. Easily took up a whole day. A must visit if you are in Negros! « less

Seriously they have to improve their facilities otherwise they will be left behind by other resorts nearby. Been here a lot of times already and as time goes by the rooms/cottages are slowly deteriorating and their service is getting old. Plus the facilities are sometimes neglected to be taken cared of as well. Though their campaign to preserve nature and... More

Great place! A lot of things to do. The sulphur pool was clean, serene and with enough crowd to settle in. If you want to see what bats do after sunset, this is the place to be. One day is not enough!

We did the walk to the waterfalls which were very beautiful and worth the sweat in the high temperatures and humidity Our only disappointment was the amount of litter that was on the trails - in addition to marketing the beauty of the falls the guides should promote looking after their tracks and in addition to education their visitors on...

Here are my top comments: 1. SULFUR DIPPING POOL WITH THE BATS – It seems like you are watching a Hollywood movie when you start to place your eyes on the sky. 2. THE SEVEN WATERFALLS – you must prepare your two legs as you try this breath-taking adventure. Unfortunately we just conquer the six waterfalls but situate us a... More

It was a short but very relaxing stay at Mambukal Resort. Spent half of the first day trekking to see the 7 falls. The views were well worth the effort! If you're normally a couch potato like me, make sure you start the trek from the 7th fall and go downhill from there. You'll have to ride a motorcycle with... More

If you're into nature tripping, this is your place. Bring your family. Lots of fun things to do. The accommodation is okay. Bring your toiletries as well as towel. They only provide soap and tissue only. Hot water sometimes works. No TV, Ref, wi-fi. They have aircon. They have canteens that provides a lot of choices.

Mambukal is a place that get's you in touch with nature. Most of the place is still pristine and untouched. There are also swifts nesting under the bridge. There are hot springs and a lake.Some of the baths date back to World War II.
