All-inclusive deals to the Balearic Islands

The facts

You may have heard some information being thrown around that suggests the restrictions on all-inclusive are being implemented on the whole of Majorca and Ibiza, that is not the case, it is actually only small parts of both islands that are affected, and you can still enjoy an all-inclusive getaway in many hotels on all Balearic Islands. There are also two islands with no restrictions at all; Menorca and Formentera.

How will your all-inclusive holiday look in the affected areas

The only thing that has changed for the all-inclusive board in the small areas with restrictions is that alcoholic drinks will be limited to three per person during lunch, and three per person during dinner only. You can still buy alcohol at other times, but it won’t be included in your all-inclusive board basis.

Don't worry though, when booking with TUI it will always be easy to tell if the hotel you are looking at offers you all-inclusive with all drinks included or has the 6 drinks per day restriction. All you need to do is scroll down to 'Your Board' then click on 'Show More' and everything that is included will be shown here.

Where is all-inclusive restricted

Restrictions apply to Magaluf, Torrenova, Playa de Palma and El Arenal in Majorca. The only place affected in Ibiza is San Antonio Town. So if you book any other resort you can still enjoy an all-inclusive basis with unlimited drinks as you have done in the past.

Ibiza - where to escape the restriction

The only place affected in Ibiza is San Antonio Town. The good news? There aren't actually any all-inclusive hotels in this area currently, which means any all-inclusive hotel you book on Ibiza is fair game!

There are loads of other stunning places you can stay, including San Antonio Bay if you still want to enjoy the nightlife of San Antonio as you can head there easily in a water taxi, taxi or even by foot.

Another place we would recommend as an alternative to San Antonio is Playa d’en Bossa, it is another lively destination with gorgeous beaches and loads to do including boat parties which are unavailable in San Antonio.

Majorca - where to escape the restriction

There may be some exceptions to the rule in the areas where alcohol is limited, as some hotels are located outside the restricted zone and can continue to serve unlimited drinks on an all-inclusive basis.

Some hotels in Magaluf that have exceptions from restrictions are Sol Katmandu Park & Resort, Sol Barbados and Dreams Calvia Mallorca, which are located away from the Strip.

You could also stay in Palmanova, so you can easily head to Magaluf, make sure the hotel you choose is out of the restricted area before booking.

Another place to stay in Majorca is Alcudia, it not only offers stunning beaches, but it also has great nightlife too.

24hr all-inclusive

Some hotels offer 24-hour all-inclusive, which means you can eat and drink during the hours the buffets, restaurants, and bars are open, which usually includes three meals, drinks and snacks. You can check with the hotel to find out what time their all-inclusive starts and finishes.

Ultra all-inclusive

This can vary from hotel to hotel, as ‘ultra all-inclusive’ (or all-inclusive plus) means there is something extra included on top of the usual all-inclusive basis. This could mean branded drinks are available at no extra cost, there is a minibar in the room that is stocked daily, unlimited dinners in à la carte restaurants or something else decided by the hotel.

More restrictions

Some other restrictions that have been introduced are a ban on pub crawls, boat parties, 2-for-1 offers, open bars, toplessness, mankinis, costumes, megaphones and loudspeakers. Wearing no shoes is also banned.
