The apartments were clean and very comfortable with everything you could need included. The rooms were thoroughly cleaned and beds changed twice during our week long stay which was lovely. Air conditioning was great since the weather was so hot and the pool was well used, especially as we were on the ground floor so our apartment opened straight onto the pool side. There was a lovely roof terrace with lots of seating and barbecues, good for an evening meal or drinks. The location is great, a quiet neighbourhood and an easy 15 minute walk to the amazing beach. The train station and town are a 10 minute walk in the other direction and trains to Barcelona are frequent, fast and cheap. We also took the train to Sitges one day. There are lots of family friendly restaurants in walking distance too and we certainly didn't need a car. All local information is shared by Rosa on arrival and she was on hand every day to help with any queries, this really enhanced our stay as she was so kind and spoke English very well.
The place has all the basic amenities, and walking distance to many attractions and to the beach. Its a nice quiet neighbourhood. It has a nice kitchen and we were able to cook there. Overall the place is worth what you pay for. It is noteworthy to mention that the place states it is wheelchair friendly, and although it has step free access, the place is not meant for a wheelchair. The rooms are quite narrow and the bathroom is so small. The wheelchair cannot fit into the bedrooms nor the bathroom. Also, if you have a big size vehicle, the parking would be very difficult.
We had a great time at CARU. They received us at the afternoon, they were very friendly and helpful (they told us a lot of useful info of Castelldefels and Barcelona, ask them for restaurants!!). Everything was completely clean, with loads of equipment (basics as oil or salt or hairdryer). Location is also good, it's at the center of town, and extremely near from the beach, weather is great!!! Also near from the train station in order to visit Barcelona. I came with my family, to have a good relaxed week, so Im grateful of the calm we found there. Would really recommend it !
A lovely location in a residential area 10 mins walk to the nice beach (fine for teenagers). A little further to the station to get to Barcelona. There is a supermarket nearby and 24hr garage with shop. There are some nice restaurants nearby- better value than the uk, despite the exchange rate. There's also a rotisserie which saved us cooking. The apartment is clean and comfy with everything you could want in terms of utensils, hairdryer etc. It's great to have towels and bedding changed during the week. The manager Rosa is very helpful and available and speaks good English. The pool is clean and compact- good fun for one family at a time. The only downside was the other guests- some of whom were not always considerate-clearly a family of elephants were staying above us !but this is obviously not something that the owners can control. The rest of the family weren't disturbed and I put my earplugs in to get to sleep.
We came for a two week holiday with a wedding and a 42nd birthday for my mate, lets call him John. When we were greeted by Rosa, she showed us in, our beds room, kids bedroom, toilet shower, kitchen, lounge kids bedroom, TV, blackout blinds, balcony which steps out into the pools side. BBQ's sofas and tables etc on the roof. Seeing as we knew so many people in Castelldefels at the same time as us, Rosa was kind enough to let us host on the roof. 17 of us, thrice. Bloody good times and no one was tempted to jump into the pool from up there. Great place to stay, between beach and train station. Brilliant find by the Mrs, will recommend and use again.
Firstly this apartment is absolutely fabulous, great location excellent facilities and beautiful surroundings. Our host Rosa was exceptional and very helpful from our first point of contact to arrival up to departure totally faultless, helping with directions and maps to all the best places. Check in was so easy even though we had an airline delay a quick phone call and updates proved effortless. When finally arrived she ran through every aspect of the apartments features, provided free lounger towels and showed us how washer, cooker and other appliances worked etc. Everything you could need is in the apartment from iron/board to hairdryer towels bedding etc, full cutlery and the obligatory bottle opener there was nothing else we needed. We had a ground floor apartment opening out to the beautiful grounds with a wonderful and much needed swimming pool in the heat, together with plenty of chairs and loungers there are plenty of options for everyone, also a beautiful roof terrace which has tables chairs comfy leather loungers and a barbecue area it truly does cater for every requirement. Comfy bed with memory mattress, lovely shower and bath and most importantly blinds shutters to keep cool in the night albeit the air con certainly helped too. The neighbourhood is stunning and very peaceful and secure and no problems with parking even though plenty of on site spaces available. Safe secure and an excellent location with several bars and restaurants within walking distance. The beach approx 10 mins at a slow stroll and town centre again 10 mins in opposite direction with everything you could need with a rail station taking you direct to Barcelona in less than 15 mins with a T1 zone ticket only 9 Euros for the two of us. Beautiful long stretching beach for miles lined with restaurants suiting all tastes. Would highly recommend Barbarossa if wanting burgers, hotdogs nachos and a beer almost a tgi Fridays kind of menu) or for an outstanding steak go to Ushuaia Argentinian steak house at the end of the high street. But plenty of options and price ranges for everyone. We had a hire car so done plenty of exploring and it's so easy reaching salou in little over an hour together with tarragona, lloret de mar and the beautiful Montserrat which is a must visit. We attended the moto gp so it was quite a busy time due to such a large event but certainly didn't create any hold ups. I could write a whole lot more as it is such a fab place and the people are amazing but instead will just say please book it yourselves and enjoy as much as we did. Can't wait to return. Very reasonably priced for everything you get. Thank you Rosa for your hospitality helping us have a truly memorable holiday.
Fantastic modern self catering apartments. Small and quiet, often had the pool to ourselves. 10 day break and could have stayed for a month! Plenty of room for 2 adults and a 12year old. Everything you need, in a great location (5-10 mins to the train station/buses, 5mins to local shop, 15 mins to Lidl/carrefour and large modern shopping mall, and 5-10mins to thr beach - timings based on which route you walk, found short cuts throughout) The facilities: Well provisioned kitchen, with washing up liquid and towels, as well as the usual utensils and pans. Washing machine, cooker/oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine and pegs/dryer. Bin bag provided but you will need to get more. Bathroom - lovely and clean, toilet rolls, shower gels and handwash, towels, hairdryer, shower/bath. Other: Cleaned once a week- so if you beed bin bags and loo rolls in between you will have buy extra. flatscreen tv Wifi - two points for upstairs and downstairs, fast and reliable. Double bed was memory foam and really comfortable. Sofa bed was fine for our son, not the most comfortable from my perspective but he didnt mind and slept like a log! Its the type that folds flat, so middle is a join when its flat so you have to lie on one side or the other. Dining table and chairs, modern glass and leather. Outside balcony table and chairs. Free safe box with key. Aircon - worked perfectly Tips: Rosa tells you everything you need to know about how to get in and out to Barcelona and around Castelldefels. Make notes! Get the T10 (9€) for travelling by bus or train on route to and from Barcelona. This is 10 trips and can be used for multiple people and on the metro, if you use it within 1 and a half hours it counts as one trip. Airport-you can get buses to and from and use the T10, to both terminals from Castelldefels bus station ( opposite the train station). Taxi from T2 costs about 25€ so the public transport is significantly cheaper and really easy to use. Trains from Castelldefels to Barcelona is platform 2. Trains from Barcelona to castelldefels - look for trains to St Vincenc de Calders or Vilanova. If you go to Sants to get back platform 8/9, Passeig d.G is a different platform but easy to find/ask. Go to the Old Town in Casteldelfells, head for the Castle, lovely places to wander around and eat. Do a big shop at Lidl for essentials, far cheaper, its a long walk to carry lots of shopping so we used our suitcase to bring stuff back. Its open all week, inc Sundays usual opening hours. Local shop has day time opening and closing times so check with Rosa! Would definitely recommend staying, great base, facilities and amenities never far away. Had an amazing and relaxing holiday so huge thanks to Rosa who was really informative and always checked if things were ok.
10 days vacation from June 30 to July 11, family with 3 adults and a child. Location: midway between the beach and the town station Castelldefels, a good location for beach and visits in Barcelona. On a quiet street, it has parking but it is quite difficult to access (narrow space for maneuver). Distance to the beach or train station about 1 km, about 15 minutes walk, Nearby there are several fine restaurants, two convenience stores very well stocked and two large shopping centers. Amenities: fully complies with photos on this site apartments with one or two bedrooms, kitchen equipped with everything necessary, cable TV, internet speed quite good, functional air conditioning. Relatively spartan dormitories and furniture a bit old, would need an update, as well as for the bathroom. At the location there is a pool available for guests. The host was very welcoming and helped us with all the necessary information (transport to and from Barcelona, restaurants, shops ..etc.). Conclusion: a nice place for a family vacation and visit to the city, unpretentious but comfortable outstanding. Very good price-quality ratio, taking into account the prices of the area and the proximity to Barcelona.
This place was really great - we had 3 of us staying (all friends) so the 2 single beds and a double worked great. The pool was lovely and fresh - great to relax after a hot day. Near the beach and some local shops. The roof terrace offers nice views and a BBQ. Dumb things to note - good water pressure on the shower, but the washing machine didn't do great for us (almost left clothes dirtier than they started!) Overall loved it though!
Been living here for a few weeks now, its safe. Very well located. Close to the bus stop, train station, city centre, beach, our office, has supermarkets close by. Is a few stops away from Barcelona. Great staff. Cleaning happens twice a week. Quiet street.
