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!

It is a fun place to take kids from the remoter areas of Negros. It has a few pools and some statue areas to take pictures with. The zip line and bike ride are 200P each which are expensive by local standards. We took a busload of over 40 people and treated them to a day at the park and... More

I've read about this about a couple of months back - Mambukal Resort asking for P200 deposit for every towel a visitor wants to use. I thought that they have improved on this as this review was some months back, but lo and behold we encountered the same experience last April. As our group has been travelling for more than...

Cheap, government-owned resort but well-maintained. Clean and cool place. Best for day trips and overnights. It has a Sulphur hot spring good for health. Natural red mud is also accessible and good for the skin. A hike up to the 7 falls are also available to the adventure seekers. This place has a huge bat colony too. Several swimming pools... More

If you're in Bacolod City and you want a quick out-of-town getaway then this is your place to visit. It is more or less 30 minutes away from the city and it really is a great place to visit. There are different attractions there including swimming pools, waterfalls, the hot spring and the zip line and kayaking areas. Come early... More

Went to the hot spring on a Sunday afternoon was a bit disappointed the bottom of floor was slimy could have used some chlorine to kill off the moss the water was not hot enough I realized that they mix cold water with the hot spring water to moderate the temperature

If you're in Bacolod, try to get out of the city to enjoy your stay in Negros as Bacolod is known for food. Resorts are mostly outside the city. Mambukal is an hour away from the city. You can go to the Provincial Capitol at Lagoon for inquiries or advance booking. Or you can go straight ahead the resort by... More
