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!

Visited as a couple with family and a friend. We stayed overnight in a self catering bungalow overlooking the boating lagoon. There is an onsite restaurant if you want to eat out. It is very basic so don't expect fine dining. Although the accommodation could have been cleaner, the natural attractions made up for it somehow. Bed linen and towels... More

This government run place is a great way to experience the local jungles. By all means take a guided tour of the waterfalls, even if you can't make all of them. They are still beautiful. A word of caution, the concrete steps can be very steep, uneven and slippery so it is not for people with walking issues. You do... More

We went on a Monday but it was raining a bit when we went so we were only able to see and try the sulfur dipping pool, the boating lagoon and butterfly sanctuary. The sulfur dipping pool was not too hot like in Maquinit in Coron Palawan. The dip was nice. The shower was too cold though! Imagine dipping in... More

I stayed in Mambukal for one night. The area is beautiful. The hot springs are nice. My room in the "Tourist Lodge" was the creepiest place I ever had to sleep in. It was dirty, the water was not working, the bed was stinky and there was pretty much nobody in this kind of haunted house. 600 Pesos for a... More

been here several times and enjoyed it each time. it's good that it's a mountain resort because I always find nature trips to be exciting and adventurous. I find the food choices okay - some are a bit expensive, some affordable. I just didn't like the fact that some trails have no lightings (last two times that I was there... More

Resort that can let you feel the wonders of environment and have fun. We hiked the 7 falls in which kinda dangerous but fun. The stairs were narrow and steep but the best feelings when you reach the top. Hear the breeze of the air and feels the water of the falls. After hiking, we let our body rest on... More

Mambukal Resort is probably around an hour or two away from the airport. We have organised our private transpo with T3Centre for our convenience. It was a long journey but we never got bored seeing the massive sugar cane plantation along the way. If you are a person who has an intimate attachment with the environment then this is the... More

Took a jeepney here from our hotel in Bacolod. It was a nice getaway from the city. We hiked the 7 waterfalls which was a nice hike. It took 1 hour there and back to the entrance. The pools were nice and refreshing to take a dip in and the hot spring pool was fantastic! Each spot you go into... More
