This week, businesses in Arenal said enough is enough and even introduced a dress code. Football shirts, necklaces and hats from street vendors are banned.
Residents have also had enough, saying that they can't sleep at night. This summer there have been plenty of incidents. A group of tourists set fire to a bar after throwing a molotov cocktail from their hotel balcony. Just last week, Bulletin online published a photo of a man holding on to the windscreen of a moving taxi.
The Mayor of Palma, Jose Hila, has said that he wanted respect from visiting tourists, but according to residents, they are not getting it.
Extra police have been drafted to the resort. Arenal, like Magalluf, also has a freeze on all-inclusive booze. Times are changing in Mallorca and bad behaviour will not be tolerated.

I knew it! For years, UK media have been telling us that everyone and everywhere else is inferior to Brits and Magaluf, despite Britain and Maga gleefully winning the drunken-cheapness trophy year after year. But now, it's allegedly finally confirmed that Magaluf has lost that crown. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.
'This week, businesses in Arenal said enough is enough and even introduced a dress code. Football shirts, necklaces and hats from street vendors are banned.' Well as long as the drunks are better dressed before vomiting everywhere and having sex in the street, it'll be alright!
These resorts have been a major problem for many years. Those that are responsible for these Urbanisations are not introducing serious penalty rulings. Unless there are very strong deterants and large Fines or Prison or Deportation Penaltys. The British and German mainly youths. Will continue to think they can act totally irresponsible in a different country with no controls. These "Tourists" are not wanted in Mallorca.
