Please go to the Top Question entitled "Ecotax" there is a link in there to a calculator which will work it out for you, including the IVA (rough equivalent to VAT) and the fact that the rate drops from the 9th night. Your 16 year old counts as a 3rd adult - the two younger ones are not counted at all..

NB to work it out you need to know the official rating of the place you are staying (NB this is not always the same as your tour operators rating system) which in the case of Talayot is 2 keys- see http://www.talayot.com/

we paid 59 euros for 3 adults for 10 nights

if they charge the 16 year old then it will be about 65 euros no more

They WILL charge for 16 year olds Kev W - it applies to all persons aged 16 upwards .The precise amount due is dependent on the length of stay ( reduces to 50% from day 9), when in the season you are staying and the official rating of the accommodation in use.

As I mentioned in Post 1, the Top Question that I set up about Ecotax on the main island forum page has a thread all about it and includes a link ( in Post 9) link to an online calculator that will do it for people. In the case of jsm's stay in an official 2 key apartment complex - the amount due is slightly less than you are quoting including IVA
