We are back from vacations at Malemi and it was just great! Small, but very well runned hotel with good location in the middle of the island. The staff was pleasant, our room was simple, but clean. The owner and his wife were very wellcoming all the time. When I wanted to give my key to the reception desk on the second day she said with a smile: You can do whatever you like, you can take it with you, it's your home now.
The food is fantastic, no frozen things, everything is organic from their farm near the hotel. Greek diet, little meat, but every day there was sea food too. A lot of different vegetable dishes!
The place is very quiet. No Greek nights and animation for guests. Nobody bothers you, you have opportunity to rest.
The sandy beach is close, there are some trees for a shadow. You can rent umbrella etc. The sea is very shallow and warm. There are some tavernas, minimarkets and bars by the beach too.
We rented a car for 5 days and visited some places on other parts of Lesbos. Our top three beaches are Skala Eressos, Agios Issidoros near Plomari and Molyvos where you can swim and look at the castle above. Specially I recomend you to visit petrified forest and Natural history museum in Sigri!
PS There is a big parrot in a hotel hall who is busy all day long. He (or she?) whistle, smack and imitate telephone ring very well:)
