This is a very relaxing neighbourhood and we kindly ask guests not to play loud music, etcetera, after 10 PM (22:00). Due to allergies, we cannot accept any pets. The air conditioner is very handy to have on warm summer nights...... HOWEVER we kindly ask you not to run it 24/7 as this is very bad for the environment and electricity is dear in Spain. At all times when running, all doors and windows must be kept closed. Thank you!

Carvajal is located between Fuengirola and Benalmadena. The area is excellent if you want to enjoy calmness but still have easy access to bars and restaurants. There is also a local bus. The Carvajal beach, with plenty of fresh water showers, is the nicest and most spacious beach of the Fuengirola coast-line. It offers nice bars and restaurants - all within walking distance: The Kalifato serves great paella, La Cubana with world-class-mojitos, snacks, food and drinks, fish restaurant Los Marinos Jose - first class fish restaurant - best in the region.... and not to forget: Gekko Beach Shack!!!
