Sunbeds sweat! Hotels turn up holiday heat charging for loungers!

HOLIDAY Brits will be throwing the towel in this summer in their battle for Spanish sun beds. And this time, so often their great rivals the Germans are not to blame for the surrender.

With Spain’s economy in such dire trouble, some Spanish hotels have started charging for sun loungers with beach view. For the first time in Mallorca, guests at one hotel in popular Cala d’Or are being charged E7 a day for sun beds. 

Although poolside loungers at the hotel Barcelo Ponent Playa are free guests seeking to lounge on the beds on the terrace overlooking the spectacular bay of Cala Ferrera are being forced to pay €12 for the privilege of two sun beds and umbrella.

Down the road at Cala Gran, guests at the Sol Cala d’Or are charged E2 a day for sun beds around the poolside. In the past, by using the free hotel beds, families including thousands of British used to save as opposed to spending a small fortune while on holiday if they used the public beaches and paid daily for beds.

But now they fear hotels charging for beds is a sign of things to come.
