HOLIDAYMAKERS wanting a boozy Spanish holiday will have their plans ruined as the popular resorts have capped the number of drinks they can be served.
Brits in Ibiza and Majorca will only be allowed to have six drinks per day when staying at all-inclusive resorts.
The regulations will affect tourists in the popular holiday hotspots of Magaluf, Majorca and some areas of party island Ibiza.
Tourists can only have three free tipples at lunch and three with their evening meal.
Balearic Government chiefs say they want to improve the image of the party resorts which have a reputation for boozy and bad behaviour.
Thomas Cook has already cautioned their customers in an email updating them on package holidays.

Hotel owners are said to be worried and claim tourists are already shunning their establishments and opting for those outside the zones.
Balearic officials have also put the block on boozy pub crawls, the sale of alcohol in shops between 9.30pm and 8am and advertising party boats in some areas.
The law was brought in in 2020, but travel companies have echoed the rules now as thousands of Brits book holidays to the Spanish islands.
Balearic Islands Tourism minister Iago Negueruela previously said: "We want British tourists – we don't want this type of tourism.
"British tourism is essential for our islands. We share with the British government the view that some images of British tourists are embarrassing. We want to put a stop to bad behaviour.
"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 drinks limit, saying it "strongly supports" the new rules.
A spokesman said: "ABTA will continue to engage with the Balearic Islands Government, ABTA Members and other parties, to encourage clear communication and exchange of information, in order to ensure holidaymakers travelling to hotels in the designated areas enjoy a positive customer experience."
