I dont know how strictly it is enforced.

the carribean bar really comes alive at 11pm when the disco starts...excellent dance music...rock...pop...ect.Give the barman a couple of quid tip at the beginning of your holiday and he wont forget your face...will serve you straight away...top up your drink ect...well worth it and they deserve it....btw a wicked sound system in the carribean bar...!!!

I saw a site saying

21: Spirits

18: Beer.

No-one seems to know the answer..im 18 when i go.

The correct answer is:

21 for spirits.

18 for beer.

It should be enforced and bars or hotels should find themselves in a world of trouble if they violate this policy, but many do.
