“Good value apartments.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We have just returned from Vista Picas apartments in Menorca. The transfer from the airport took just over an hour. When we arrived at Vista Picas we were welcomed by a lovely lady Lindsey on reception. She soon checked us in and was giving us a ground floor apartment but I asked if it would be possible to have one on the second floor and she quickly changed it for us. The apartment seemed very nice when we first entered and was bigger than I expected. When we pulled the curtains back we found we were facing the pool which was nice. The kitchen is only small but it was quite sufficient for us because we eat out apart from breakfast and the occasional night when we stopped in and had a light tea, bottle of wine and played cards. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery, pans, toaster, kettle etc. There was also an iron and ironing board. The bedroom was very roomy. It had 2 double wardrobes, dressing table and 2 bedside cabinets. Plenty of room to put everything away. We had everything we needed for a 10 day holiday. It was very hot and we could just have done with air conditioning but anyway we coped with the patio doors open and doors from the bedroom on to the balcony open. We closed them at bed time because we thought we may have had insects coming in. We had the bed changed twice and towels changed three times. It was all very clean. The pool area was very nice and always looked clean too. We didn't really eat much at the restaurant on sight as we liked to go out mostly. We did have a jacket potato and a pint one day when we stayed round the pool which was very satisfactory and reasonably priced. We caught the bus 3 times into Cuitadella which is a lovely place in the old town. The bus stop was just outside the complex and cost 1.65 euros each way each. We also went into Cala en Bosch which was another nice place with quite a nice beach and a marina with lots of restaurants around it. There were plenty of restaurants around the Vista Picas area. We tried various ones, Los Delfines which was just a short stroll away, L'Ancora which is about a 10 min walk on the left under the blue bridge which you will soon discover and best of all Haiti which again is just a short stroll away. We had three lovely meals there at a very reasonable price. As an example one night we just had a main meal each and shared a sweet, a litre of sangria and 2 irish coffee's and it came to around 41 euros which was around £34. A good bottle of wine there was around 8 euros. All in all we enjoyed the holiday and would probably go back again.

Room Tip: Room 205 facing the pool was nice and shaded after a hot day out. Did get some sun in the morning.

Stayed for a week at the Vista Picas apartments! On arrival we spoke to a very friendly receptionist who explained how to get to our lovely pool view room. The apartment was spotless and the kitchen provided all the utensils you need for a SC holiday :)
We had our bedding and towels changed every second day and the maids also cleaned the apartment :)

Fantastic access to transport as the bus stop is right outside the entrance of the reception. Taxis back from Ciutadella at night are also less than 10 euros which is a bonus if you want to stay for a meal and few drinks without rushing for the last bus!

The complex was quiet and the staff very friendly and helpful :)

Great holiday :)

Room Tip: Room 236 was good as had a pool view and just the right amount of sun!

Very impressed with the apartments, especially for the price we paid. Pool area lovely, clean and spacious. Always beds available. Nice little bar and restaurant area, which had entertainment starting the week we left.
Apartments are basic, but spacious and clean. Maid service a little hit and miss, and not normally something I comment on, but certainly not the most pro active cleaning Ive ever come across. No air con, and would have to hire a fan next time...doors cant really be left open for air as noise from Karaoke will keep you awake.
Overall, a great holiday experience...and you must go to Jimmy Hills, 100 yards away, for great, free entertainment every night

Just back today from a weeks holiday with my wife and 2 kids.
We enjoyed our stay here at the vista picas as the rooms were clean and spacious.
Staff were also friendly and happy to help.
Pool is very clean and never a problem at getting a sunbed.
Is also in a good location and close to shops and bars.
20 minute walk to the beach.
If you are thinking of booking this place I would definitely recommend it.
We stayed in room 126 and this has a small kids play area at the back and gets the sun in the evening which is nice if you want to sit out and let the kids play.
Bus stop is also right outside the reception area so handy to commute to other towns.

Room Tip: 126 has very little noise at night so would be good for these who like peace and quite!

Stayed here for a week in May ’14 and this was our first visit to the hotel. On arrival, it wasn’t the best first impression seeing there was no receptionist behind the reception desk and having to be told by the waiter that our keys for our apartments were already in them. Also, there was some confusion on arrival where we was under the impression that we would have two apartments, one consisting of a double bed for my parents and the other apartment having two single beds for my brother and I. In the end, we got one apartment that was a double for my parents but mine and brothers apartment we ended up having a double bed and a sofa bed in the lounge :-/. Wasn’t too pleased with this at first, but didn’t let this spoil our holiday!
Overall, the apartments were clean, tidy and of good proportion. We had a nice clean pool, which many people didn’t really use so was like having our own! :-D. The hotel is located right near a couple of supermarket to pick up any bits and bobs and had a number of bars and restaurants close by including Jimmy Hills, Castaways, Haiti etc... To anyone thinking of staying here, we as a family would strongly recommend it!

Although this was a rocky start, it ended up being a great family holiday!

Room Tip: When looking at the Vista Picas from the front, avoid apartments to the right hand side as expect no...

I have been staying in vista picas twice a year for the last 10 years. Lindsey on reception is always helpful always remembers you. The bar staff are friendly and foid is good value for money. Pool area always clean and tidy and is jet washed every night. You can always get a sunbed even in high season no need to get up at 6am. Lovely pool ended up with it to ourselves this year. The resort is fab I would recommend going to the square in the evening fantastic entertainment brilliant bar staff in jimmy hills and if you want to party all night jimmy hills 2 has a disco and music til 6am. The best restaurants are Los delfines forum and lancora lovely food and friendly helpful waiting staff. There is no beach nearby but a 20 min walk to cala blanes a massive gorgeous beach there.
I would recommend to anyone I have made friends here who are friends for life x

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.
