Positive Reviews

Unbeatable position right on the beach

The location of the hotel, right on Casteldefels sandy beach, was far and away what guests most liked about Playafels. They were, after all, on a beach break, so having the beach just a few steps away was exactly what they were looking for.

Lots of dining options nearby

Guests were happy to discover that they were not stuck with the hotel's restaurant. No matter how good, they still wanted some variety, and were glad to report that there were a large number of cafes, restaurants and tapas bars in the immediate area.

Relatively easy to get to Barcelona

Though most guests seemed to spend their time on the beach, and in surrounding Casteldefels, some did go into Barcelona every now and then. The route via public transport was described as fairly easy, with a 10-minute walk to the train station, and then a 30-minute train ride.

Negative Reviews

No tea or coffee making facilities

While this may come down to cultural differences, since not all countries have the practice of including these in hotel rooms, this was cold comfort to guests who would have liked the ability to make themselves a quick cuppa with no fuss, but found there were no in-room facilities.

Bar and restaurant seem seasonal

Guests travelling in the off-season speak about both the bar and restaurant being closed. It is unclear if this is always the case, but those travelling in the cooler months may need to seek these out in the surrounding area.

Rooms not well soundproofed

There were a few reports from guests that indicate that the soundproofing between rooms leaves much to be desired.  They complained about being able to hear (real) voices from the adjoining rooms, and thought the hotel should have done more to make the rooms soundproof.
