Spanish officials sparked outrage by enforcing the new “six drinks a day” rule for all-inclusive holidays at some resort.
This meant that Brits like holidayer Jason Walker, 42, would need to pay extra for more drinks.
And, 11 restaurants and resorts in the Playa de Palma area of Majorca banned tourists from wearing football shirts, novelty street vendor accessories and strapless tops from their grounds.
The new rule was implemented to reduce “drunken tourism” on the island.

And, the new rules don’t stop there as Barcelona’s authorities have released new controls to minimise nuisance to the locals, reports the Sun.
The restrictions mostly affect guided tours which are common in the major city as a way to learn about the sights.
Megaphones will no longer be allowed in the coastal city and so guides will need to use audio equipment or speak at a normal volume.
Plus, group leaders must plan walking routes that “minimise inconvenience”.
Tour groups must be limited to 30 people – with this reduced to 15 in smaller areas.
And, some attractions will only accept groups of three to eight guests at a time.
Additionally, tours must follow a one way system and may only be conducted on a total of 24 streets and squares.
Plus, the tour guides have been urged to ask tourists to book in advance rather than touting for business in public.
They must also find “spacious locations” to stop rather than causing disruption.
