Me and my friends recently visited Derekas (3rd -11th July).
After reading mixed reviews we didn't really know what to expect, however we were happy with the clean standard of the rooms, pool and bar area! The staff were a delight and attentive.
This hotel is perfect to be close to all the nightlife/beach/town yet in a more quiet area which is more relaxed. €6 to the strip which took about 5 minuets in the taxi!
A few additional changes could be made to the hotel to make it that extra better -but for the price we paid we couldn't have gone anywhere better.
The food at the bar Is fantastic with a different range of breakfasts, snacks and meals.
I would highly recommend Derekas studios for a great holiday!
