Spanish officials ‘ban boozy all-inclusives’ in Brit tourist crackdown

Killjoy Spanish officials have banned unlimited booze on all-inclusives in a desperate bid to keep rowdy Brits away from Magaluf.

The new rule limits tourists to three drinks with lunch and three with dinner, and will put an end to all-you-can-drink deals at hotel bars.

Brit holiday favourites Ibiza, Magaluf, and Playa de Palma will be the first to implement the ban.

Balearic Islands Tourism minister Iago Negueruela said: "We want British tourists. We don't want this type of tourism.

"British tourism is essential for our islands.

"We share with the British government the view that some images of British tourists are embarrassing.

"We want to put a stop to bad behaviour. From April-May this year we will increase the police presence in these areas and the number of inspectors.

"We will have zero tolerance for tourism excesses."

But anyone who booked their holiday before 23 January won’t be subject to the new law – meaning they will be able to have one last go at unlimited alcohol.

A spokesperson for the Association of British travel Agents (ABTA) said: "ABTA strongly supports initiatives that improve the health and safety of holidaymakers, as well as the welfare of local communities.

"Some of the measures introduced by the Balearic Islands authorities to limit anti-social behaviour have potential to cause confusion for UK holidaymakers, so we welcome the recent clarification from the authorities, including that the restrictions will only apply to certain limited areas in Mallorca and Ibiza rather than the whole of the Balearics as originally proposed.

"It is important to note that the limits on alcoholic drinks in all-inclusive hotels does not apply to any holidays booked before 23 January 2020, for travel during 2020.”
