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.

Relaxing spot close to the night life
The only real negative about the location is that the beach is a bit small and is a real effort to get to. The apartments are nice and the complex as a whole is a credit to Menorca, with helpful friendly staff, beautiful and well maintained pool and a good breakfast served on site. Bus stop is right outside of the reception and cheap fares to take you around the island in air conditioned comfort. I really wanted to hate Jimmy Hills when reading the reviews before we travelled but ended up loving it. The entertainment might be a bit low key but you have a great time if you just go with the flow. The bar staff at Jimmy's are like a well oiled machine and ordering drinks and food is easy and done within minute as you sit in high backed comfortable chairs. Restaurants in the area are good all round but our favourite was Yuca where many locals seemed to eat. Also the Chinese by the giant sun dial clock was fantastic too. I found the Menorca locals very friendly and welcoming it made the holiday perfect for our family of 4. I recommend you give it a visit.More

happy days at vista picas
five of us stayed at the apartments in july 2013, mum, dad, and two kids in one, grandad, grandma, in another, we found them clean & tidy, the pool is superb & is cleaned everyday, the staff are out of this world, especially the lady on reception, the price of food & drinks were very reasonable at the apartments & quality is good,most of the time we spent around the vista picas, but also visited a few small coves quite close to the apartments which were lovely for snorkeling and swimming, the sea was clear as a bell, in all we had a good time there and value for money was good More

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
