The regulations affect tourists in the popular holiday hotspots Magaluf, Majorca and some areas of the party island of Ibiza.

Tourists can only enjoy three free drinks with lunch and three with dinner.

Balearic Islands Government leaders say they want to improve the image of party resorts, which have a reputation for drinking and bad behavior.

It said: “Please note that the Balearic Islands government has issued a decree imposing a new restriction on all-inclusive meals.

“A maximum of six alcoholic drinks can be served per person per day, and these drinks are only offered at lunch and dinner (3 each).

“Please note that a new All Inclusive restriction applies in Magalluf, El Arenal, Playa de Palma in Mallorca and Sant Antoni in Ibiza.”

low-cost airline EasyJet issued a similar warning back in January.

Hotel owners are said to be concerned, claiming that tourists are already avoiding their establishments and opting for out-of-zone ones.

Balearic officials have also banned drunken pub crawls, the sale of alcohol in shops between 9.30pm and 8am and advertising party boats in some areas.

The law was introduced in 2020, But travel companies have now repeated the rules as thousands of Brits book holidays to the Spanish islands.

The Balearic Islands Tourism Minister, Iago Negueruela, previously said: “We want British tourists – we don’t want that kind of tourism.

“British tourism is essential to our islands. We share the British Government’s view that some images of British tourists are embarrassing. We want to stop bad behavior.

“We will increase the police presence in these areas and the number of inspectors – we will have zero tolerance for tourism excesses.”

And travel association ABTA backed the drink limit, saying it “strongly” supports the new rules.

A spokesman said: “ABTA will continue to work with the Balearic Government, ABTA members and other parties to promote clear communication and information sharing to ensure holidaymakers traveling to hotels in the designated areas have a positive customer experience enjoy.”
