We read some pretty uninspiring reviews about Phuket Graceland before we went away... and okay a few pieces of the feedback are valid - the beds were on the 'hard' side, parts of the room were a little run down and our particular room did render us the odd 'coollish' shower depending on um ... well we never did figure out the pattern/reason ( but be real... a coolish shower was required mostly - it's a warm, warm climate! )...
BUT this is a country where some people don't HAVE a bed-so get over how comfortable yours is !!!... some people don't HAVE furniture, paint on their walls or even a roof over their head in this country so get over that it may not be the 'in' or most up to date interior decorating etc.
The place is clean, lovely staff, great service and a wonderful breakfast buffet ( and to all those who complained - I bet some of you were the very greedy, overweight people we saw going up and filling your plates over and over again but who were probably STILL complaining because your favourite brand of cereal wasn't available!? You seemed happy enough at the time!?
This is a BEAUTIFUL country, with BEAUTIFUL people... try to look deeper than your own wants and needs and see the real Phuket.
This Resort gave us all we desired for a VERY reasonable cost and it was fairly close to everything you could want to see and visit, if you want a lovely, reasonably priced holiday that gives you MUCH more than your money would buy at home then stay here... if you live in the lap of luxury at home and expect 5 star quality and treatment but don't wish to pay for it then PLEASE just stay at home as the way you act at places like this ( where REAL people come for a holiday ) ruins not only your holiday but everyone else around you... and I find insulting to the very people who's country you are a visitor in.
The only thing that tainted our families stay here was the rudeness and ignorance of some visitors - no matter WHERE you travel people ... get over yourselves... remember your manners and realize that saying "please" and "Thank You" to those that are working in your surroundings of the time is NOT a weakness but a strength that ALL travellers should remember in our opinion... my 16 and 19 year old daughters had a FABULOUS time but came away stunned at how rude/obnoxious and downright pompous some travellers become when they leave their own shores... Thank You to those out their that helped remind my family why indeed " manners maketh man" ... and many Thanks to the fabulous staff and team at Phuket Graceland for giving us such a wonderful time... we know that sometimes it's HOW you spend your holiday that makes it... not just WHERE xxx
We had a blast and from what we saw around on our travels Phuket Graceland was one of the top places to do it!
Hope this helps others xxx
