The hotel was very nice, very clean and comfy. Air conditioning in the room with a lovely sea view. Food in the hotel was good and the drinks were reasonably priced. Being a backpacker I was trying to save money wherever I could so went to do my washing outside of the hotel as it was cheaper. But I got... More

To start. My first room had no air con or fan so within ten minutes of me being there the room turned into a sauna. I then went to the desk to ask to be relocated and they said the room type is full and I would have to upgrade if I wanted to switch rooms. Unhappy at this point... More

The beach at Mac Bay Resort definitely is not great. It's impractical top ho swimming because the sand leads you right to a shallow tide pool and sandbar. The rooms themselves are pretty nice. Instead of blankets, you get oversized giant towels on the beds so I'd suggest bringing a sheet to cover yourself. I've been happy with the restaurant... More

Tucked at the end of a small street, Mac's Bay Resort is conveniently located to everything you need whilst on Koh Phangan. Although, the rooms are average, you get a nice view of the ocean, the sun, beach, and neighbouring Island Koh Samui. The owner is Thai and the staff are mainly Burmese, therefore, their hospitality may not be on... More

Clean and fresh. In between Had rin and Thong sala makes the spot perfekt. 2 minutes to the highway trough the djungle. Close to seven Eleven and good, cheap restaurants with excellent thai food. Good service and friendly staff.

We stayed here on a group tour and the location of the hotel is beautiful. However the pool was empty and the sea is very shallow. The room was average, with a few visits from some cockroaches. They are very strict with cleanliness so if there is any damage (especially paint damage) take pictures when you arrive so they don't... More

Group of 3 stayed here the weekend of the full moon. The staff were rude, and the room was anything but clean. The door to our room was not secure in the slightest. Cockroaches everywhere in the room and the bed sheets were dirty. Asked to be moved to another room and staff were very reluctant to do this, they... More

I stayed with a few other backpackers and have to say, the beach huts that are actually on the beach and the newer beach huts near the pool are great. The rooms further back with balconies were also very nice. My roommates and I seemed to have drawn the short straw and got stuck in an older, grubbier hut that... More

We spend 3 nights at Macs with 4 friends. We specially booked this resort because of the location (close tot the half moon party). We stayed in the appartements right next to the beach. We can recommend everybody to book the small houses on the beach. The surrounding and views were absolutely amazing. So it's a great place to chill... More
