Paramedics were called to the scene at the TRH Torrenova hotel on Monday night, but were unable to revive her.

The Sun and The Local report that a police spokesman said: "The forensic department carried out an autopsy on Tuesday morning and has determined that it was an accidental death through drowning.

"She had a lot of alcohol in her system and may have fallen asleep while taking a bath.

"Hotel staff were alerted when water appeared under the door and when no-one answered they entered the room to find the woman in the bath with the tap still running.

"The hypothesis is that she passed out and then drowned."

Speaking to The Local, a hotel receptionist said she had been staying at the hotel with her boyfriend, but they had had a huge row the night before and he had left.

The receptionist said: "The woman came to reception very upset on Sunday night and asked us to call the police because her partner was being very aggressive, then shortly after he asked for a cab and went to the airport," the receptionist told The Local.

"She stayed on another night without him and then was discovered on Monday evening."
