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!

Great for hiking! And a getaway from all the smokes and pollution in the city. Our trip there was unplanned but we never regretted on e bit. It wss worth the time and effort. We reached the 7th falls out of breath. 😂😂😂

This is such a great place for the whole family to relax, lounge around or simply sip a cup of coffee while ready a great book or magazine. For the adventurous at heart try trekking and climbing up to the several layers of water falls. Family rooms are also available at very affordable prices.

The best place to escape the city life with family, friends or a special one. Here there are 7 falls to explore while taking a hike. Sulfur baths for those who want to relax and it is believed to be therapeutic too. Fresh air and fresh water everywhere with plenty of activities to enjoy and sights to explore.

We were able to climb to the 7th fall with my pregnant wife, 6 year old son, and 62 year old mother in law. Our guide was great, putting himself in danger in order to low my 6 year old to jump in to the 6th fall pool (jumping in was fine, climbing rock wall out was challenging). He also... More

It was more of a state park with activities, lodge rooms, camping, hiking, nature walks. The Blade is open and the massage package was very good, inexpensive. Massage package #5 was great, cost was $1600 Php, but with the senior discount only$1280 Php.
