“Good value , great apartment”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 via mobile

Easy to access on bus, staff very friendly and helpful. Right on beach with free bicycles, lounge chairs, kayaks etc. to borrow. Rooms are large with everything you need including tv. Balcony huge. Laundry in garage good with washer and dryer. Lots of places to eat in area, they eat lunch around 2 pm and supper around 10 pm at night, in between most places are closed. To get a coffee in am we went to bar across street. Very good value for your money.

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

Marfina is greatly located, directly at the broad beach and easy reach when travelling true.

From a price value standpoint you get all you need for a short stay. Anything is on walking distance, the car is securely parked and rooms are clean and practicle.

Staff is really very likeable and of great service. Wifi works fine and the whole operation does not pretend to be more than it is: fine appartments at the beach, just on the outskirts of Barcelona.

Breakfast is cheap, but not worthwhile. Any pastelleria in the neighbourhood does the same in a nicer surrounding with broader choise.

As sad: great for a short stay, for a longer stay the rooms are to small.

A wider selection of languages on the TV might be the only point of critcism.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaside appartment at the topfloor: less noise of the street and other floors, plus a stun...

We visited Marfina with a group of friends. The apartments were small but clean and functional and their location could not have been better. The staff at Marfina could not have been more accommodating or helpful and made every effort to ensure we had a comfortable and happy stay. The bathrooms were well equipped with plenty of hot water and a power shower, the kitchen was small but had everything we needed to cook a meal and the rooms were small but comfortable.

The beach was outside, there were local shops and cafes under a minute's walk away and the town centre was a twenty minute walk away. Castelldefels was a lovely, locals town and so it felt like we were experiencing the "real Spain". The local people were very friendly and there were plenty of restaurants to choose from.

There was a beach bar literally opposite on the beach, which served food and drink throughout the day. Barcelona was a short taxi ride away (20mins) or on the local bus route which stopped outside Marfina, which meant we were able to get in and out of the city easily.

I visited with girlfriends but am planning on returning with my husband and little boy as Marfina is suitable for all groups, families and couples. There wasn't a pool so as long as you are happy with the beach then Marfina would be a perfect place to stay.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Marfina apartments.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room on the beach side rather than the road side, as the road was a little noisy.

Fantastic! Really pleased with the our 2 bedroom apartment and friendly staff! Very smart, clean apartment with balcony and air conditioning. Pool outside with sun loungers and a table tennis table - Super. Short walk to beach along a lovely quiet street. Went to Marfina which was on the beachfront to get our free sun loungers for the beach - all good. Had a fab holiday and no complaints about anything. Great area and easy travelling to airport and Barcelona by bus or train. We will be back *****

Room Tip: All apartments had a balcony, so only ground floor maybe not for you as opened onto pool area at bac...

We spent ten days with a big family in Porto Coeli building. Apartments are good with well equipped kitchen, regular cleaning and a nice area around. We used all the facilities (free kayaks and bikes and sunbeds etc.) and stayed satisfied. The beach of Casteldefels is very good.

We stayed 5 days at Marfina during the Easter Holidays. We had a fantastic time. Our apartment was lovely, it had everything we needed. The apartment was clean. Beds were very comfortable. Our daughter slept on the sofa bed which was fine.
We had a nice see 'side' view.
Lovely to see all the activities going on along the coast. I believe its 5 km of coastline were people are walking/running/cycling/rollerskating. It gets very busy on Sunday morning so we walked instead of cycled.
Marfina offers free bicycles you can use during your stay which our daughter absolutely loved. We went on several bike rides and used them to cycle to the local supermarket to do some shopping. Prices at supermarkets are very cheap, we're not used to that in the London area :-)
We went to Barcelona a few times which was amazing. What a great city.
Although we rented a car (mostly to drive from and to the airport, renting a car for a short period worked out cheaper than 2 taxi rides and you can park for free at Marfina) we went by bus to Barcelona.
The L94 stops in the street across Marfina and it takes approx. 40 min to the center of Barcelona. It's SO cheap, as Castelldefels is part of the Barcelona area (zone 1) it only cost 1 ''stamp'' to Barcelona which works out if you buy a T10 at reception desk (cost 9 Euro's for 10 bus rides) it's only 0,90 Euro cents.
By the way any questions you might have, at Marfina they're always happy to help. Very friendly staff.
We'll definitely go back one day as its best of both worlds. Lovely beach for our daughter to play and cycle along the coast and beautiful Barcelona close by.

We viewed over 30 before choosing Marfina - and after 2 bad apartments and the parking ($60/day) experience in Barceloneta this was what we needed - Contemporary IKEA Style interior, steps from the beach - on the beach promenade - very clean - absolutely fantastic helpful staff - close to all kinds of activities, restaurants, shopping - can recommend the seafood section at Carrefour - FREE secure PARKING what a concept! Free Bicycles, Surfboards etc. - No graphiti - What else do we need to say - only negative was that Internet access was a little slow but workable for most people - A GREAT PLACE!
