- The 34-year-old is said to have been on holiday in the Ibizan resort with friends
A British holidaymaker has been found dead at his hotel room in the Ibizan party resort of San Antonio.
Police are reportedly looking at the possibility the death was drug-related although they are awaiting the results of a post-mortem before making an official comment.
The dead man, described as a 34-year-old Brit, is said to have been on holiday with friends and was staying at a hotel in the centre of San Antonio.
The ongoing investigation is being led by the Civil Guard.
The alarm was raised early this afternoon, with his friends alerting staff at the hotel he was staying at with them.

A source close to the investigation said last night: ‘I can confirm police are investigating the death of a British man who was staying at a hotel in San Antonio.’
Last month a 35-year-old British man died after plunging from a second-floor balcony in the Ibizan resort of San Antonio.
Police sources said drugs were found in his room during a subsequent search and officers were said at the time to be working on the theory he may have been acting under the influence of drugs.
After he died it emerged the same man had cheated death in a 30-foot fall in the same resort nearly five years ago.
He ended up impaled on the pole of a sun umbrella in a near-tragedy in September 2018.
