Spain holiday warning: Majorca and Ibiza set to BAN all inclusive deals in three areas | World | News


Respected island newspaper Diario de Mallorca reported yesterday on new legislation being drafted for trouble areas in Majorca and Ibiza including the Brit-popular destinations of San Antonio and Magaluf. It said the new laws would force hotels to immediately throw out holidaymakers caught jumping from their balconies and impose massive fines and closures of up to three months on shops and other businesses that flout bans on the sale of alcohol outside of an allowed timetable.

Today it revealed ‘all-inclusive’ deals would be practically banned under the decree regional governors are working on in hotels in three areas – Magaluf and Playa de Palma in Majorca and San Antonio in Ibiza.

Magaluf and San Antonio are most popular with British holidaymakers and Playa de Palma, which includes the rowdy area of S’Arenal, most popular with Germans.

There has no been no immediate official reaction to the reports.

Regional government tourism sources quoted by Diario de Mallorca said the legislation being prepared to tackle ‘all-inclusive’ deals with free alcohol required “very complex specific legislation” which would be “very exceptional for those specific places and couldn’t be applied in all the Balearic Islands.”

Mauricio Carballeda, president of the Palmanova and Magaluf Hotel Association, admitted recently rowdy Magaluf strip Punta Ballena was still impairing the resort’s ongoing attempts to clean up its image.

The association also revealed the number of hotel expulsions had gone up by 170 per cent.

An attempt by the Balearic Islands’ regional government to tackle ‘all-inclusive’ deals in the last legislature foundered because of a lack of time.
