The swimming pool is excellent and ideal for families with children.
Wifi in the room was good.
Quiet area with restaurants and beach line in walking distance.
And then well, it started with a mail I received on the same day of check in which notified me I needed the pick up the key in another place. Luckily not that far, but I think you can already notice some pointers that could lead to trouble, unpleasantness and misunderstandings.
Second of all, there is no Athena what so ever, no area, no building named like that too. The room is located at a condo complex called Atlantis. We drove a couple of streets in and out trying to find it and then decide to call the number we received in the mail.
The owner calculates cleaning costs to the clients, but not much was cleaned. My guess is that they only clean the sheets of the beds. The room itself needs a serious renovation and has some leftovers of water damage / mousture in one of the bedrooms which could lead to mold.
Staff was, i would not say unfriendly just their typical Thai way, but unprofessional for sure. At reception of where we needed to pick up the keys and the concierge at Atlantis. Plus when was asked about the warm water and to open the locked safe deposit in the room (which you easily could walk out of the building with) the answer was, someone will come tomorrow... nobody came.
After some serious renovations this could be a suitable place to stay with your family.
Anyone stayed here during the last couple of weeks, months. Should get a serious compensation!
