    Britain accounts for a very high percentage of tourists in the poor economies of Spain,France,Portugal and Turkey.
    These countries rely heavily on tourism and laughing at Brits who
    spend more than any other foreign nationals would be counter
    productive and plain stupid!
    They would be wise not too upset the British gravy train.

    The Brits are the Shits. When I owned a restaurant/bar in Ibiza the english would go to the loo and steal the toilet paper, they would also walk off the the ketchup. Never tip the waitress. Make their order at the bar and carry their out to the terrace so as not to pay an extra euro for table service. Mom would have a chicken dinner, Dad a rib dinner and a plate of french fries for the children. Cheap bastards. A real disgusting lot. The english should be banned from Spain, they always have something to complain about, because not everyone speaks english or things aren’t done the way they are in england. They can tell you the price of a can of beans in every town on the island.

    I have personally stayed at the hotel mentioned above in Playa Blanca on four occasions and have had no bother whatsoever with the food. A varied selection to suit even the fussiest people. The staff were friendly and courteous and the animation team a hit with the kids. No doubt I’ll be back at some point.

    Please do not stereotype an entire nation. It would be like me saying that all Spanish are lazy and inconsiderate. Perhaps you should have owned a more upmarket establishment to attract a better sort of clientele.
