Magaluf Hotels To Create A Blacklist To Ban British Tourists

Magaluf. Shagaluf. The popular Spanish resort has quite the reputation for seeing the worst of the British.

The well-known tourist hotspot is famed for Brits arriving, getting absolutely hammered, picking up a sexual disease and returning home with liver disease.

But now, the residents are getting their own back and plan to clean up the party capital.

The region's hotels are currently drawing up a blacklist in order to ban badly-behaved Brits from entering some of the resorts.

So, how is it going to work? Well, if you're spotted throwing up on the streets, being loud and unruly, or literally tearing the place up, then your name will go on blacklist when you check out of the hotel.

Your name will then be shared around several hotels in the region on a big database, reports the Daily Mail.

It's the first time that Magaluf has tried such a scheme, but it's been tried before in Malia, Greece.

The list, sent to the hotels, included the header: 'Notice expelling unlawful clients'. It included people's names, nationalities and passport numbers.

According to local reports, one of the lists noted that nine guests were kicked out of their hotel for throwing a bed off a balcony.

It looks like 2017 is the year Magaluf is getting tough. Earlier, in June, they introduced new laws which tried to limit the volume.

The new legal high (not in that sense) will be set at 60 decibels - which is similar to that coming from a restaurant or an office.

For reference, a vacuum cleaner registers 70dB.

The Daily Star reports that clubs in the region will install sound limiters, which will cut out anything louder than 60dB. These devices will be linked to the local police station, alerting them if it touches 65dB.

Other legislation means that flowers can no longer be picked, sculptures can't be built without permission, spitting is banned, and you can't drink from a public water fountain, nor can you pour out dirty water near trees.

Forget the real police, call the fun police, somebody is ruining it all.
