Visited February 2009. Roughly 30-45 minutes south of Bacolod City. 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!

The falls were great. It was quite difficult to trek as the path was rocky and the steps were quite high. We were only able to visit 3 out of the 7(now 6) falls. We also tried the sulfur springs which were quite relaxing. Do not miss the bird(swallow) nests below the bridge beside the canteen.

I felt that we had a great time in this resort. There was a safe secure parking space for the car. There are guides within the resort should you need one. We did not try the swimming pool as it was crowded, but we tried the hot springs. It was a relaxing dip in the hot springs. But the highlight... More

When in Bacolod and the city life doesn't help in destressing, this place is the perfect choice. Consisting of rolling hills, tourists can choose from some thespian trekking in visiting the 7 (now only 5) falls, into relaxing at the hot springs, trying the mud pie facials, and having a massage at the spa! There's just many choices any cosmopolitan... More

I was impressed by the place so i brought along my family (all 15 of us! ) in one of the long vacations two years ago and this time with my high school batchmates who came for the maskara festival.

Took a day trip up to Mambukal Resort and I was not disappointed. Fantastic and beautiful place. For anyone that is in to outdoors and nature it's a must see. From hot volcanic springs to a beautiful trek up to 7 waterfalls through an almost jungle like setting. Then a relaxing swim in the resorts swimming pool to finish the... More

Visited this place from Bacolod City(45min.) Planned picnic and dip in hot springs pools. They also have waterfalls, swimming pool, paddle boats and hiking areas. Good for one day trip but you can also rent a villa for longer stays. They have cover charge for entrance, pools, cabanas, and other activities. Visit was during the week so low crowds. Weekends...
