Dear Sir, I was interested to read the recent correspondence about the increasing preponderance of all-inclusive holidays. I'm from the UK and have been visiting the island for more years than I care to remember. It dismays me to read that more and more hotels are going down this route. Already I feel sad for the shop, bar and restaurant owners sitting outside their properties day after day with barely a customer to serve. Majorca is a tourist destination, that is its business and it loses it at its peril. While all-inclusive will attract people, particularly in these recessionary times, it is so short-sighted. Surrounding businesses will fail, and then people WILL stop coming. Who wants to walk around in the sunshine in a ghost town?
