With whitewashed walls and terracotta roofs, these apartments have a quintessentially Menorcan look. They’re arranged in a crescent overlooking a big, figure-of-8-shaped pool. Loungers and thatched parasols are set out around a roomy sun terrace, and there’s a separate half-moon pool for little ones. At one end there’s a palm-dotted lawn, where you’ll find a shaded snack bar.
The apartments themselves are simply styled, with cool tiled floors and chunky pine furniture. Each one has a small kitchenette – there’s a supermarket over the road for picking up supplies – and a balcony or terrace.
As for the location, you’re in a great spot. The bars and restaurants in the centre of Cala’n Blanes are just a few minutes’ walk away, and you’re a 10-minute stroll from a couple of sandy coves. There’s also a bus stop nearby where you can catch regular services to Ciudadela – the journey takes about 20 minutes.

nice but quiet
Visited end of September and found it very quiet as some places were closing for the winter season. Nice complex the apartments are not too close to each other we had one with a terrace overlooking the pool and it was nice - they are basic but well equipped - towels changed every third day and linen twice a week which is more than some I've stayed in. The area itself seems very much geared to the brit tourist with almost all the eateries selling the same selection - was a bit dissapointed there wasn't any local restaurants but we found a lovely Italian called Rodamon highly recommend this restaurant. The local bus to Cuitadella stops just outside the Vista Picas and it's really well priced and comfortable. Would recommend the apartment block but only if your not looking for night life and don't mind not having a t.v. - you can always sit on the terrace and listen to the acts performing at Jimmy Hills down the road.More

Nice stay, out of main season
After a nightmare wait at Minorca Airport in the Owners Cars queue, we arrived at the resort early afternoon when the reception was on 'siesta'....however, a polite note clearly stated our room number with keys left in the aptmt. This gave us an opportunity to walk round the apartments and pool which were all very quiet ....it was the end of September. Our 1 bed aptmt was quite spacious as detailed in other reviews. Comfy bed. Good storage space. Good sized bathroom. Good sitting / eating area. Nice alcove looking out over courtyard/pool. The maid came 3 times in the week and cleaned the aptmt and cleared the bins. During our stay, the restaurant and reception staff were very helpful when needed and very friendly...enjoying our attempts at speaking Spanish....everyone should make an effort! We noted that others had commented on the noise/music from neighbouring bars...which we can confirm....we did enjoy the three tenors and the Abba night...without having to leave our aptmt to attend Jimmy Hills bar! However, all was quiet from 1130-midnight onwards and this was not an issue for us. Overall the aptmts were not all occupied and during the day it was quite quiet....but this was outside the normal holiday season. Recommend the Yuca as a place to eat and the Voramar for drinks whilst watching beautiful Sunsets over the sea. If you want to see the real Menorca, can't recommend Cala'n Forcat / Cala Blanes ....think Magaluf on a small scale. Nearby Cuitadella is a very pretty town...with plenty of architecture, eateries and a wide range of shops and traditional markets....but remember the Spanish do close from ca 1300-1700. Bus service to Cuitadella was brilliant - reliable, comfortable and cheap. We hired a car..and there was space to park at the aptmts ....though the kerbs are a challenge and should not be rushed. Quite easy driving round the island on the main and secondary roads. More
We visited as a family in October, the pool was freezing but the food and bar was spot on, very close to the main square where there's plenty of Entertainment, food, football etc. Shop and bus stop right next to the reception, where you can the bus to citudella for a couple of euros, would come back again but would be in low season again as its a very small resort More

A much better time than we expected
We stayed here in August 2013, and, after reading some of the other reviews, wasn't looking forward to it a great deal. How wrong I was. Let's get the negative things out of the way first. - Yes, there is noise from Jimmy Hill's next door. We were in the block right next to it, although facing away from it, and the noise was intrusive, (in fact, on our balcony you may as well have been in the bar) but it does stop at midnight. If you are an early to bed type, or have children who need an early night this might not be for you. However, you're on holiday - just go with it. Either go to Jimmy Hills and watch the entertainment or stay on your balcony and enjoy the entertainment with your own drink. Or an even better suggestion is to go to the Tropical Kiss bar on the next road down, virtually opposite the Aqua Park. This was by far our favourite bar; Luis the owner/barman is an absolute star, and kept us royally entertained while we were there. The chairs are comfortable, the mojitos fantastic, and the whole experience is to be most recommended. I wish the Tropical Kiss was on Trip Advisor because I'd love to give it a proper excellent review. I digress; back to Vista Picas. - Ants. We did have a bit of a problem with ants, but this is the Med and that happens everywhere. We kept as much of our food as possible in the fridge, including bread, and also swept the floor every day to try to get rid of crumbs. Doing that didn't bother me, but some people may not want to sweep their own floor. Ants are not really something the establishment can do much about. The nice lady at reception did say there was a spray available if it got too bad, but fortunately it didn't. Now on to the good things about the place: - The apartment is a good size, and was clean. We are two adults and an 11 year old, so a family of 4 might be a bit more cosy, but it would still be roomy enough. The sheets were changed once while we were there and the towels twice. That's ok for us. - Beds. The bed was very comfortable, as was the sofa. No complaints - Crockery etc. Even though this was an apartment for 4, there were 6 of almost everything, which is unusual, and most welcome. There were also plenty of towels; again, this has not been the case in other s/c apartments we have stayed in. - Drying space. The apartment came with a large airer (is that the right spelling? - I mean clothes horse) on the balcony. This meant you could dry all your swimming stuff, and air out the apartment towels without having to drape them over the chairs or edge of the balcony. Again, that's better than anywhere else we have stayed. - Kitchen equipment. There was a large fridge, kettle, toaster, and mini electric oven thing, and 4 hobs. If you plan on preparing you own meals this might not be enough, but if, like us, you only make breakfast and sandwiches, that's plenty. - Storage. Kitchen cupboard space was limited, but given the presence of ants, I doubt we'd have used it. In the bedroom there were two large wardrobes, plenty of space I'd say, even if there were 4 of you. - The pool is a fantastic size, and never seemed too crowded, even though I think the place was at capacity. We never had problems getting a sunbed, although not always in the shade. The grounds are also nicely kept and pleasant. We'd say the pool is the best thing from our stay here. - Location. The apartments are handily placed for local supermarkets, the bus stop (which had plenty of helpful information), and local bars and restaurants are close by. - Reception. We had very little to do with the reception, but what little dealings we had the staff were always polite, friendly and helpful. - No mozzies!!!!!!!! Result!! Finally, a couple of tips that you might find useful. - There is only a finite amount of hot water available each day. Use it wisely! - You have to empty your own bins. I don't mind that, but it was overflowing before we realised that the cleaner had been in and not done it. - Do try and check out Tropical Kiss bar - it's fun!More

Lovely family stay
We have just come back from a week in Menorca and the Vista Picas apartments were brilliant for a family stay. My other half, his daughter and myself stayed in a 3 bed apartment which was very clean and had all the basics needed whilst holidaying. Owing to the diverse cultures who were also present at the resort, the pool and surrounding areas never seemed too busy. The atmosphere was calm and very good for young children up to the ages of 15. Lindsey - the lady on reception - was extremely helpful, especially when she organised our day out on a boat around the island, including the taxi that picked us up. Other members of staff were also extremely helpful and really good with children. There was a little bit of noise from Jimmy Hill's bar from next door but that stopped around midnight, this was the only negative we had to say about the resort. The Vista Picas apartments are in an ideal location, with restaurants, bus routes, beaches and supermarkets right on the doorstep. We would highly recommend this resort to families who are looking to take young children on holiday.More
