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

The Mambukal Resort is a must-see place when you are in Bacolod. I commend the city government for their efforts of preserving this beautiful place of nature. The trails and walkways around the area are helpful in exploring that lagoon, the hot spring, butterfly garden, etc. There are open cottages everywhere and they are perfect places to rest and chill...

It was a nice place to visit, we stayed in the cabins. But me being more of an urban guy, wasn't used to cold showers. But it was good as the room has air conditioning. Several things to bring is your own towels and toilet paper. lucky some one brought those things. There are some eating places but best to... More

Should be in your itinerary when you visit this province. I enjoyed the mountain trekking with friends. Amazed by the series of falls that you will find along the way as you go up the mountain. Unfortunately, we did not reach the 4th and 5th falls because the group aimed to see the first three falls only and true enough... More

You are provided a tour guide free but a good tip will be much appreciated and well deserved! The trek s through some mountain terrain. 7 falls are well worth it. Some level of... More

Perfect place if you would want to relax and forget all your worries. The place is far from the city making it more peaceful and really perfect for relaxation. There are lots of things to do here, you can visit the hot spring or maybe you can go hiking and visit the falls.

Well if your looking for a place to unite with nature and get rid of noises of in the city. Mambukal is a perfect place for you. Sulfur springs, colorful mud, several water falls, bat watching and more is only few things you can do at Mambukal. The best time to visit it is during their mudpack festival where participants...

This is one of the highlights of my trip! My girlfriend and I went here to climb the Seven Falls, and it was well worth the trip! We did the climb to Waterfalls number 4, but it was starting to rain so hard we needed to turn back. We were both in Sandals and we should of had better footwear... More

Have been there many times and its a good place to cool off especially on summer and the trails to the 7 wonderful waterfalls is an experience you should not miss.
