MAGALUF IS MEGA ROUGH! Number of Brit holiday makers kicked out of their hotel DOUBLES
THE number of badly behaved Brits kicked out of Magaluf hotels has DOUBLED in a year.
Boozed-up tourists booted out of Majorcan resorts rocketed in June compared to the same month last year.
The Palmanova-Magaluf Hotel Association said 94 per cent of the offenders were British and virtually all had been kicked out of hotels in Magaluf and the neighbouring resort of Palmanova.
It said the number of people shown the red card in the association’s hotels in the two resorts so far this year was now 73.
The tally takes the total number of hotel guests expelled from establishments in Magaluf and Palmanova since 2010 to a staggering 1,257.
Only last month, 47 holidaymakers were asked to leave the place they were staying – double the amount in June last year (24).
And Association president Sebastian Darder said the only year when the percentage of Brits kicked out has dipped below 80 per cent was in 2015 when they made up 75 per cent of the 116 people asked to leave.
Even then Brits topped the list of shame, as they have every year since 2010 when expulsions began.
Mr Darder said the message was clear: “We want young tourism, but not drunk tourism. Hooligans have no place here in Magaluf and Palmanova.”
Some of the holidaymakers asked to leave were accused of assaulting or insulting staff and others for throwing bottles into the street from their hotel room.
There were also instances of tourists jumping from their balconies, destroying furniture in their rooms, and in one case assaulting their partner.
Police were called in several cases to make sure they left peacefully and arrest them where assaults had taken place.
Mr Darder said: “We spoke to British diplomats and the tour operators before we started expelling people in 2010.
“Where people who have come with tour operators are asked to leave, the tour operators are left with the responsibility of finding them somewhere else. Where they have come on their own, then they are on their own and are refused entry into any of the hotels in the association.”
Alfonso Rodriguez Badal, mayor of Calvia which covers Magaluf, asked Mr Darder last month to ensure two Brits filmed beating up another in a horrific attack outside their holiday apartment were kicked out of their establishment.
Irish nationals are also said to be among the other main offenders after the Brits.
