Many of the huts at Mac Backpackers are barely visible thanks to all of the flowering bushes streaming over the green metal roofs and porches with hammocks.

Mac’s “cheapest price bungalows” have been around for decades, and they still do the trick for budget travellers who like their privacy.

The bungalows are set in two rows facing one another across a narrow lawn lined by an impressive spread of greenery – the gardener was the one who showed us a room. Pricier editions come with private cold-water bathrooms with bucket-flush toilets along with firm beds and mosquito nets raised over wood floors, wall-mounted fans and screened windows. Smaller and cheaper huts rely on basic shared bathrooms located near a shared kitchen.

A bit of grime should be expected in the bathrooms, but Mac’s bungalows didn’t appear any less inviting than many that we saw at other places for more cash. The beach can be reached after a two-minute walk through a coconut grove, and Baan Tai village is also within walking distance. WiFi is not available at the bungalows, but can you really expect it at these rates?

While we liked the small collection of bungalows set aside for backpackers, the lion’s share of Mac’s property comes in the form of Mac Bay Resort, a fairly large resort with a big beachfront restaurant and swimming pool. Here you’ll find uninspiring but comfortable rooms in freestanding wood bungalows or two- and three-storey concrete stacks that fill up when the half-moon party takes place nearby.
