We stayed here last week through a last minute deal and were a bit apprehensive being in Laganas. Not a bit of worry - the apartments are far enough from the main strip to not get any noise.

Everything was spotless in the apartment, pool and bar area and lovely wee laid out gardens at the side of the pool. Dennis, the owner, was very helpful phoning taxis etc when we went to go to Tsilivi to see friends and Vasia who worked in the bar and provided us with breakfast when required was such a sweetheart.

We will definitely be going back to Derekas and had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday here.

Room Tip: Bottom floor is best overlooking the pool area.

These apartments are set in beautiful surroundings with some lovely views both front and rear of the complex. They are kept immaculate by Dennis the owner and his staff, the grounds and pool are spotless! And everyone works so hard to keep them that way.
From the moment you arrive you're made to feel welcome and the staff try their best to accommodate your needs.
Derekas apartments are set the furthest away from the lively part of laganas which depending on the traveller is either a good thing or bad thing, for us with a very young child wanting a quiet break it was ideal.
Being a 30+ minute walk from the bars and clubs you are limited for choice of restaurants close to the apartments so you will need venture out as the rooms are extremely basic!! to which I will touch on later, but the nearest restaurant is 5 min walk called 'to rodi' which we highly recommend.
The poolside bar is open from 9am till late with a great selection of drinks serving basic bar food from a full English to pizza and burgers etc.(drinks approx 2-3 euros food approx 5 euros) so all in all this is a great value place to stay aimed for a range of people old and young.
The rooms are basic but kept clean and tidy, they have little more than a bed, bathroom and fridge.
They Really could do with the addition of cleaning products, kettle, iron, microwave etc. to be a true self catering apartment.
Although we really enjoyed our holiday we found a few negatives some of which were out of anyone's control.
Noise - road, cockerels, occasional late clubbers and generator.
Air conditioning - £60 a week
Mosquitos - no spray or plug mistake on our part!
Stairs - put us on first floor with baby and pram wasn't ideal
No cot - as requested and paid for although this was rectified 2 days into holiday.
And finally this is a big draw back! Most return flights home are early morning flights therefore you are to vacate your room by 12 the previous day! So you could potentially be waiting around for 15+ hours Which isn't ideal with a baby. Fortunately if there is space available you can extend your room for 20 euros which we did and would recommend!
In conclusion we had a lovely time, exceptionally good value for money and made to feel welcome in a clean basic family run apartment complex of approx 20 rooms.

Room Tip: Request a ground floor if travelling with young children and pushchair

Hotel staff are excellent. Always there to help. Ringing taxis for us to get down to the strip. I was staying in another hotel down the road and walked here daily as I enjoyed it so much and would rather be here. Food is good and cheap too. Good selection of alcohol and cheap too. It's a more relaxed clubbers hotel. Chilled in the day.

Very friendly staff, spotlessly clean, both room and pool. Very relaxing and chilled and sufficiently far away from Laganas if you don't want to get involved in that!!! I didn't.
Cracking week, I'm going again.

Just got back from Derekas apartments and i have to say it was amazing. The 1st thing we noticed was how amazing the pool areas is, so clean and obviously very well looked after. Yes the rooms are basic but we had everything we needed an the rooms are immaculately clean. Eda who works at the pool side bar is amazing, always making amazing food, ( especially her omelettes ) great cocktails,an always knowing our drinks at beer o'clock, We are already planning our next trip there and can't wait to go back
