This review is a little late!! Totally forgot to do one.
Please be aware that this place is a total self catering holiday, if you are not prepared for this then it has obviously come as a shock for some.
The area was not for us, as we like to walk round and this area was very residencial, would have preferred a promenade, the complex was good and the rooms basic but serviceable for us we only use them to sleep in, the pool area was clean and always plenty of sunbeds, we sat in the same place all week, right outside our room.
We bought our first round in the pool bar paid a refundable euro for the glasses and then bought beer from the shop, as we were pool side it was no trouble popping back to the room for drinks and snacks, we ate there once and it wasnt great and they could do with sone evening entertainment, but Jimmys is great and there are several play parks with restaurants so kiddies are catered for.
I would recommend this place, even though we may not return, but that is no reflection on the complex, just the resort was not busy enough for us.
We had a fantastic holiday at Vista Picas, We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with our 2 children, the apartment was lovely, really spacious and spotlessly clean, we had a huge balcony that was really private, There was a few ants in the room, but this is normal for Spain in summer, we just bought a can of ant spray from the shop across the road for 3 Euros and problem solved. The pool area was gorgeous again very clean and well maintained and always plenty of sunbeds even though we were there in the middle of summer. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food in the poolside bar was really nice and they had a large selection. We really enjoyed our holiday here and can definitely recommend this place.
Not sure what people find to complain about here. Great staff in reception. Any problems we've had have been dealt with within an hour, like ants being sprayed. If you have any concern just speak to reception and it'll be sorted, don't complain on here afterwards. Apartments are very clean and spacious. King size bed very comfortable. Maid service every 2 to 3 days. Danny on the bar is great. Food good if you eat in and reasonably priced. Restaurant and bar area lacking in atmosphere and chairs hard! Pool very good for number of guests and very clean. Again sunbeds hard. Better for couples than families I'd think. If we came back to calan forcat I'd definitely stay here. Close to things and no real noise nuisance despite what some say.
