Am I allowed to smoke on the balcony at the Yaramar hotel.
According to a Management Response to a recent review, smoking is allowed outdoors. They asked that smothers be considerate of guests nearby.
I once asked at a different Hotel, same group.
Reply was,"I cannot see you on the balcony sir"
Most do provide an ashtray.Edited: 18 November 2018, 01:11
If permitted , Smoke alarms in rooms so door would need to be closed, but think it's somewhat inconsiderate to others relaxing on their balconies, who choose non smoking.
I'm not a smoker, but as above, I'd expect there to be an ashtray on the balcony.
Many smoke eating outside whilst dining at restaurants and around non-smokers. I'm not sure what the difference would be.
It may upset non-smokers, but would you be expected to leave to hotel to light up?
Do as what you are comfortable with, until smoking is banned completely. ;-)
Nice hotel by the way.
If the law and the hotel allow smoking on the balcony then do it and enjoy. We sat at the pool in Vegas and were joined by a chap with a big fat smelly cigar - it's called live and let live and presumably you won't be chainsmoking so your neighbours won't end up like kippers.
Good luck and best wishes.
The rules of the hotel prevail.
If they allow smoking on their balconies, then it's really up to non-smokers whether to stay in such a hotel.
Not the other way round.
Los Boliches is a nice area and some great local bars worth visiting.
Do try the back streets and alleys.
xxxyyy2014 Not sure if its up to non smokers whether they chose to stay in the hotel.
When Spain signed up to the e.u. regulations on smoking they inserted a clause as follows:
"The decrees introduce the general principle that, in case of conflict, a
non-smokers' right to health must take precedence over smokers' rights"
Other countries such as the u.k. have similar clauses.
I certainly know during this warm summer we have had to complain about smokers on balconies, one hotel just ignored us, the arrival of the local authority, soon changed their mind. Noted on our next visit, notices in the lifts etc, no smoking in the rooms, balconies etc and even a fine under local authority regulations.
Certainly in the west yorkshire we have public open spaces in centre of towns and the pavement outside pubs, building etc non smoking, all under the right of citizens to have their health protected and some councils moving to no smoking within the boundries of the building.
For 40 years I worked and played in smoke filled areas, without a rule in place to protect me as a non smoker, since 2007 rules in place, we must use them.
