What people say about the beach at this resort:

"The great location right on the north end of Patong beach with a breath-taking view of the bay is undoubtedly the greatest attraction of Graceland Resort"

"The beach is across a busy street, but is close enough. The beach is a crowded, busy place. Good for people watching, not really for relaxing."
