We were in there for a short time but overall we found the place well maintained. I was surprised to see different kind of butterfly collection in one place. Wish we were there a little longer.

The butterflies were beautiful and colourful. The receptionist was so helpful. Lots of butterflies compare to the butterfly garden at Puerto Princesa.

There's a few butterflies and not a lot of species.. Butterfly sanctuaries are supposed to make you happy, i felt sad here.

went there a few years ago and enjoyed it. the butterfly sanctuary doesn't just house butterflies but other insects, too, flying and crawling. a trip there would be educational and fun for kids and adults alike.

This is a very small netted garden with just a few species of butterflies, but the place is quite nice. They show you a quick video before you enter the garden, and they have a small souvenir shop as you exit. Nice for a few minutes of rest during a visit to Mambukal Resort.

The available butterfly species to see are limited but it was interesting to see the butterflies feeding on fruit slices and artificial 'nectar concoction'. There was no keeper to interpret so it was pretty much a 'see and google it for more information' experience. There are preserved bugs and butterflies collection. We were already in Mambukal so we just thought... More
