Yes there are cheaper places to stay, but having stayed here before I felt it was safer to go back to where I'd been before rather than risk somewhere new and unpredictable. Not much has changed since I was last year (in 2012) but certainly nothing had gotten any better. I remember the food being decent, but on this occasion... More

Spent 5 nights here before Full Moon Party. Found the beach absolutely stunning, with massage services close by. Restaurant food was nice and reasonably priced. However staff were very unfriendly and our room not the most comfortable - we were given dirty sheets on our first day which weren't changed until I took them off the beds and carried them... More

We stayed here around the Full Moon Party time. The location is bang on the beach. It is total value for money. Absolutely beautiful place. There are a variety of rooms. We took the beach huts - they are abit small but very nicely done. There are cabanas on the beach to chill. The staff is very helpful - especially... More

Macs Bay is by far my favourite budget hotel in Ko Phangan - it's got a variety of different room types my favourite being the beach huts, although small and not equipped with air con waking up on the beach front made up for it. The half moon party takes place on Mac's private beach which is also another huge... More

Located right on the beach with some rooms and huts facing the sea. Gorgeous view of islands and clear skies. The hotel has its own 'private' beach. The hotels restaurant makes delicious reasonably priced food but service can be slow if it's busy as everything is made fresh. There's also a clean pool situated right by the restaurants so you...

Macs Bay is on BaanThai beach, which is perfect especially for those in KoPhangan for the FullMoon, it's 15min TukTuk away from busy/dirty HaadRin beach, BaanThai is quite during the day, spotless sand, perfect for lounging around, recovering from a hangover. The hotel pool is clean and good size.. The rooms are spacious, great air con, huge comfy bed. 7/11... More

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
