If you are limited just to a choice between those 2 I would go for Graceland for location, Amari means a very long walk or pricey tuk tuk, and for family I would go with Graceland anyway for facilies etc etc

Thank you for your help. From the responses I think I should look further away. Maybe like suggested above Kamala or Kata beach. The touts would drive me insane. Is Kamala beach far from Patong, I'd like to explore. My kids are 14,11,5.

I've stayed at Graceland Phuket when my grandies were 15, 13 and 11. We all loved it. Two great pools, opposite the beach, walked along the road to restaurants, cafes, etc. A place for people of all ages. For a comparison have a look at Centara on Karon Beach. I think there are 2 - one in the middle of the beach and one at the end of the beach closer to Patong

Also have a look at Merlin beach resort which has it's own beach and great pools. There is a shuttle into Patong and Phuket a few times a day. Look into Holiday Inn which is very central and Merlin which is over the road. They are both over the road from the beach. Amari is a beautiful property and an easy walk into Patong but a steep hill going home. The drawback with Merlin beach resort is you need transport to go shopping or eat out. It is a lovely relaxed hotel away from the madness in Patong.
