This was my first trip to Phuket and found the resort perfect in it's location. Everything was at my reach, atms, 7 elevens, money exchanges, local transports, chemists, international phone booths, cheap eateries, bars and the beach!
I had friends staying at Graceland Resort and found it a breeze to walk the 2 blocks up along the same road (Thaweewong Rd) along the beach. Best to be on the street before 9am, after which you get less hassled but found the Thai people happy to leave you alone after you say 'no' once. But not a problem also after 9am just more chance of getting stopped along your way.
I got less anxious as I was a solo traveller the more I got aquainted with my surroundings. The resort was fab, a great family resort and not too complicated with it's size.
Shop not on the main drag (Thaweewong Rd) but the streets parallel and make sure to barter, half every price they give you just as a guide to get a feel and shop around!
