Police crackdown on ‘party villa’ in Mallorca where tourists hired DJs and blasted music into the early hours – sparking fury among locals

AN ILLEGAL holiday ‘super disco’ villa has caused a scandal among local residents after ‘non-stop parties’ and incessant noise. 

Villa Marilyn Lujo Disco has outraged Marratxi residents after ‘making a scandalous and unbearable environment in which residents could not sleep’. 

The ‘super disco’ villa was sold as an ‘exclusive space for clients to celebrate birthdays with music and even a DJ.’ 

Inside, the six bedroom property could house up to 30 people, with its very own club, pool, volleyball pitch, chill out zone and pool table. 

Despite lacking the Tourist Holiday Stay (ETV) license, the property was being rented on holiday rental websites. 

Still available on Airbnb, the accommodation has five star reviews and is booked almost every weekend until October. 

A two night stay for up to 30 would cost over €2,000, or €800 a night. 

It seems the owner tried to avoid issues by warning clients ‘it is very important before booking that it is a very exclusive and residential area where you could not make scandals and scatter the pool area and in the outdoor spaces.’

The description continued: “We have built a private music area so that customers can be comfortable drinking champagne and listening to music, parties or events are not allowed on the outside of the villa.”

Neighbours informed the Policia Local and town hall, prompting ten days of police patrols in the area. 

After detecting a party, officers identified the attendees and according to Marratxi Mayor, Jaume Llompart, ‘they will be punished.’ 

The town hall has now sent a note to the Balearic Tourism office, who will continue to investigate.
