The hotel where the incident occurred is a budget one-star hotel near San Antonio’s bus station called the azuline Hotel Llevant.

It is described on travel websites as the ‘perfect place to enjoy the party resort’s nightlife’.

It is just 200 metres from San Antonio beach.

Another travel website says: ‘The resort’s nightlife, bars, shops and restaurants surround this well-located hotel, and the picturesque harbour is just a few streets away. This accommodation is a perfect pick for a fun holiday in Ibiza with your partner or friends.’

The website of the Azuline Hotels group, which Hotel Llevant is part of, says on its website: ‘This is a hotel for young people who want to enjoy centrally-located and low-priced accommodation; a budget hotel with all the amenities you need for your holiday.

‘The hotel is located in one of the most popular areas for nightlife on the island of Ibiza. 

‘Ideally situated just a few metres away from the bus station, it has large bright rooms and a fantastic terrace-pool with snack bar where you can continue to soak up the atmosphere.’

A spokesman for a regional government-run emergency coordination centre said: ‘We received the first call at 10.50am local time.

‘The calls that came in said a man aged around 20 had plunged from a hotel in San Antonio.

‘Police and paramedics were mobilised as part of the emergency response.’

A health source said: ‘The man had already gone into cardiac arrest by the time the first ambulance arrived.

‘Health responders tried to save his life but were unable to do so.’

A receptionist at the hotel where the incident occurred said: ‘We’ve been told not to say anything by the police and in any case we don’t really know what happened.

‘It occurred a relatively short time ago and is still being investigated.’

The dead man is believed to have landed in the road outside a tattoo parlour.

Police officers covered the area with sheeting and cordoned it off.

Initial reports said the British tourist had fallen from the fifth floor but well-placed sources said he had been on the third-floor balcony of a room where he is believed to have been staying.

A 24-year-old British woman died in September last year after plunging from a balcony at the Rosamar Hotel in Cala de Bou a short drive from San Antonio.

Her unnamed partner is understood to have been with her at the time. He reportedly told police she had fallen around 30 feet from a second-floor balcony.
