Owner description: 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!

You won't run out of things to do in this mountain resort. Rooms are not so great but are comfortable. Transportation to and from the resort is also available.

We rented a cabin for a 2 days and ended up extending our stay for an extra day. Maany things to do and see, from bubbling, steaming mud pots in the ground caused by volcanic gases, you could smell the sulphur fumes coming from them. The huge Fox bats that live in the trees in the park were amazing and... More

Mambukal is worth the travel. Around 45 ins to 1hour drive to the city. It's either you ride the bus going here or like us since we are in group, visit it with a rented van. The falls is clear. Just the sound of the water relaxes me. You can only swim on the 4th falls, but its worth the... More

My parents, my son and myself went to Mambukal Resort last November on recommendation by a former colleague. As we were coming from Iloilo, we needed to take a ferry to cross the sea to Bacolod. It turns out that Mambukal is outside the city already. We took a bus and it was an incredibly long trip (45 minutes). The... More

I've been to Mambukal a couple of times, the place is somehow good including the natural environment that welcomes you in the entrance (including the fruit bats on trees near the entrance) the resort is filled with exciting areas to visit, like the bridge over the 7 falls, rafts (canoes), zipline, butterfly garden. Accomodation was somehow good, although not to... More

The Resort is in the mountains and to get there a car is needed or go by taxi or Jeepney, about 1hrs drive from Bacolod City. When we got there we found so much you can do so as there are units to stay in you need to book days before. We got there early morning, so to spend much... More

It was a six-hour trip from dumaguete to bacolod city and another trip to mambukal. Booking was made months therefore we had several options regarding the locations of their cottages. We paid the half of the price at the provincial tourism office and the balance at the resort. We chose the room near the swimming pool. Inclusion of the reservation... More

Mambukal is the place for nature lovers and for those who want to escape the bustling city life. There are plenty of activities you can do. My nieces and nephews enjoyed swimming in the pools. It's clean and safe even for toddlers. We hiked to the first waterfall which was quite challenging since we brought the kids. The sight wasn't... More
