The Vista Picas Apartments make a great holiday base, with a huge pool and a location that puts you in easy reach of the beach and town centre.
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.

another fantasic holiday
this is the sixth time we have stayed at vista picas, why you ask ??? we keep returning because the apartments have 1... great friendly staff Lindsay and flavio on reception and the lads in the bar who will help you out with anything to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. 2.... the apartments themselves are very clean and comfortable with enough cooking utensils to get you by if you intend to eat in occasionally, down side no air con in rooms but fans are available from reception at a small cost. 3.... the pool area wow one of the only places I've travelled to where you don't need to get up early to get a sun bed, the pool itself is huge which is surrounded by a wall so you feel safe the kids cant just run from the apartments into the pool there is also a toddlers pool which we used when the kids were very young. The whole of the grounds are well maintained and are very well presented . 4 cala n forcat itself is great for family's with a variety of bars restaurants with many having bouncey castles to keep the kids going while you enjoy a drink also not forgetting the waterpark and small inlet beach's safe for young kids, all in all a great place for a family holidayMore
Good apartments....lovely pool
Stayed at vista picas apartments mid August 2014. Travelled as a family of four. Apartments were clean and quite spacious with an adequate kitchen area. The big bonus for us was the pool area which was large with plenty of sunbeds to go around. It never felt crowded and was quiet and relaxing. The lady on reception was very helpful, giving us directions to different places. We had a good holiday and were impressed with the apartments, however the resort of calan forcat looks a bit run down in places with a number of shops, bars and restaurants that have closed down. It was also very English orientated. The big bonus for families is the many play areas etc to keep the kids entertained. Waterpark is also worth a visit. Would also recommend visiting cala galdana which has a beautiful beach. ( about 25 mins in a taxi, 35 euros each way). Overall, great apartments and pool but in our opinion there are better resorts on the island.More

A lovely place to stay!
We have just spent a fantastic fortnight at these apartments. They were in an excellent locations for shops and restaurants, the facilities were excellent, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The apartment itself was clean and well looked after - the maids were fantastic regularly changing the beds and towels. The receptionist was kind and helpful. The pool was described by my boys as 'awesome'! The bar and restaurant served good food at very reasonable prices too - the bouncy castle kept the kids busy while we enjoyed a drink. All in all an excellent place to stay!More
Second time we have visited Vista Picas and again we had a lovely time. Apartments are clean with regular maid service. All staff are lovely and friendly. Food served is very good and would definitely recommend trying their tapas dishes. Pool is lovely and it is so nice to be able to get sunbeds with no problem at all. Few people put towels out , but think probably due to what they are used to in other resorts, certainly not required here. Some of the apartments back on to other bars , so can be bit noisier. have to say this time we were not quite as lucky as our previous visit but all finishes by midnight so not too bad. If I had any complaint at all it would be that the entertainment was not as good this time (previous visit 3 years ago there was much more on offer) and also they no longer do kids club , which again was fantastic last time. All in all a good holiday .More

do not miss eating in the restaurant
we decided on the breakfast option on the jet 2 package the lady in reception said when we arrived that it was buffet breakfast-yes with full English,cereal,toast or cold meat ham etc pats on the back for this choice.There was a set meal as an option at night from 7.30-9.30 3 course for 9.95 or a la carte,this proved to be as good if not better than restaurants in resort ,our advice try the restaurant at least once,a wee gem good chef.More
