“In this case the hotel details specify – Selection of Spanish and international non-alcoholic drinks. Three alcoholic drinks per person (beer and wine) during lunch and dinner.

There are also bans on happy hours, alcohol vending machines, free bars, pub crawls, two-for-one drinks and the advertisement of party boats.

Shops are also not allowed to sell alcohol between the hours of 9.30pm and 8am.
