No more drinking from a bucket then? | Archive


The hoteliers association in Playa de Palma has agreed an action plan against anti-social tourism in the resorts. The association, representing 43 hotels with more than 15,000 beds, says that its strategy to improve the tourism product - for which there has been enormous financial investment - is "incompatible with a certain offer that promotes the sale of cheap alcohol and booze tourism".

A statement from the association continues: "A sustainable and socially responsible model requires the modernisation of all sectors - retail, restaurants and nightlife."

The association is to work with residents associations in coming up with a common strategy to deal with bad behaviour. There is to also be coordination with the town hall on local ordinance to punish behaviour, "which seriously damages the image of the resorts and prevents peaceful coexistence with residents".
