We arrived at the Malemi about 21:30 and was shown to our room and invited to unpack and have food. The location of the hotel is just 5 munites from the beach. The first part of the beach you reach is not very nice, but further along it is a little better. The beach is not well kept, broken twigs and branches all over the area and the sea bed is covered with seaweed. The hotel was clean and very pleasant, the rooms spacious with a generous bathroom. We had a lovely stay and the food was absolutely amazing. The area is VERY queit with just a couple of shops and tavernas and nothing else. It isn't what I would class as a tourist holiday destination unless you wish to simply lay by the pool each day. There was zero music which is a shame, the outdoor dining area would realy benefit from a little quiet traditional greek music playing in the background as it is a very traditionally greek type of hotel catering for many locals. The pool area was clean and the sun loungers amazing with a little movable canopy to shade your head (Brilliant), again there was no music, a little quiet background music is relaxing. Each weekday between 9-11am local children children come to the pool for swimming lessons!!! This, although not too disturbing, was a surprise as we did not expect it - likewise around 4pm each day local youths came to the pool in groups of 6-7 which at times was a little awkward and noisy. The rooms were "cleaned" regularly but we did have to ask for clean towels on one occasion and the second time our towels were not changed we didn't bother asking as we didn;t want to make a fuss. The balcony was not swept or cleaned at all during our 2 week stay, we collected tree debris etc ourselves and put it in the bin. Facilities were good, a safe in the room which is free of charge, great aircon, hairdryer and a really handy airer on the balconcy for drying clothes - Thank you! We found that often there was nobdy at the bar during lunch and dinner times so had to wait a while until someone was free from collecting pates. Water was provided with most meals which was welcomed. There is limited driks available on AI (which we knew) Ouzo, wine, beer - but the wine did run out one night so we had no choice but to drink water as we are not ouzo/beer drinkers but also no apology. Overall the Malemi is a family run hotel, laid back and rustic. The cleanliness was a good standard and again, the food amazing (I never knew it was possible to pack so much flavour in to a stuffed corgette - Superb). The area is peaceful and quiet. Micky works so hard and seems to be the backbone of the whole place, lifeguard, receptionist, chatting to guests and informing us of ceremonies and celebrations that were going on, she was a fountain of knowledge about the island and its assetts.

Malemi Organic Hotel was built by George Kapsalis and his wife Effy in 1987. The big hearted family exudes Greek charm, hospitality and maintains their true identity: a sustainable family owned hotel. Eighty percent of the food I enjoyed in their cafe was grown in their farm behind the hotel and the other 20 percent was locally sourced from the island. Each morning while working with their honey bee colonies, I saw the staff tending to the farm, it’s animals and collecting the needed produce for the day. From day one they made me and my research team feel like family! Their passion for their work and beautiful country radiates in everything they do. Thank you for taking great care of our team for two months of bee research. Memories that will last a lifetime. (George, Effy, Mickey, Maria, Faso, Vaso, Shayan, the wonderful housekeepers, gardeners, and kitchen staff!) I would recommend this hotel without reservation and look forward to returning one day to share my experience with family. It is worth noting that Skala Kallonis is also a small quaint beach “village” with a plenty of quiet beachside restaurants and a few shops. The food service in Skala Kallonis was outstanding! Sampo was our favorite, thank you Pan and Virgos! If you need day to day items you can most likely get them in Skala, but if not the town of Kalloni is a 10 minute taxi from the hotel. Kalloni has a grocery store, boutiques, other restaurants and is an excellent starting point if traveling around the island!

Came here with a group to do some research and the staff are very accommodating and friendly! The hotel is beautiful and there are animals everywhere, which I love. Food is great and hotel is within walking distance of several towns if you need to go to the store or want to go shopping. Very nice place!

I can to this beautiful hotel on an internship to study bees. I am so grateful for the hospitality that the hotel gave us. They treated us like a part of their family and I had a wonderful time on this island. The food was great and I'm glad I stayed here for 8 weeks.

My Wife, her parents and I have just spent 2 wonderful weeks at the Malemi Organic Hotel. George, Micky, Maria and Vaso in particular made us feel very welcome, although all the staff here were very helpful and accommodating. This is a wonderful family run hotel. I researched the hotel before we booked, and read the reviews on here as a guide, which is why I wanted to leave my views to help others decide. We arrived quite late following a delay to our flight. It was approximately 10.00pm but we were still greeted warmly by George and Micky, who sent us off to get food and drink while they sorted our rooms and checking in process. A lovely, thoughtful start. Our rooms were very nice, very clean and comfortable. The air conditioning, safe and fridge are all included at no extra cost, which is another nice touch. This is a 3 star family run hotel, not a corporate owned hotel. You get the family feel as a result. Our rooms were situated well away from the pool and bar area, which we were grateful for as they were very quiet as a result. The rooms are spacious and kept to a very high standard. The food was very good indeed. The owner and his family eat the same food as the guests and the majority of the ingredients come from the hotel farm, grown organically. Everything served up is home made. Breakfast was lovely all homemade cuisine. The buffet in the evening is plentiful and traditional Greek cuisine. Very good quality and choice. The hotel is situated in the quieter Skala Kallonis area, which suited us perfectly. The small village had been hit hard by the economic crisis just like the rest of the island and was not busy at all. There are still lots of places to sit and have a drink watching stunning sunsets. If you want a busy nightlife, this is definitely not the place for you. Kalloni is in the centre of the Island giving you easy access by car to anywhere else on the island. The pool area is very nice. It was always very clean and looked after. A very relaxing place to unwind and while away the time. The pool bar was handy and Maria and Vaso very helpful. The all-inclusive drinks were limited to Beer, Red Wine, White Wine and Oozo, but were all good quality and not restricted at all. There is a farm attached to the hotel which makes it a bit different to the norm. The animals were interesting and made for a nice attraction. The hotel was very quiet during our stay, as was the rest of the island as a whole, but this made for a very relaxing break. We enjoy travelling to different countries and places and have visited many hotels over the years. We rarely go back to the same place, as there are so many places still to discover in the world. However, the biggest compliment I can pay to this wonderful hotel and the marvellous family that run it, is that we will definitely be coming back here to see you all again. Thank you all so much for a truly memorable relaxing holiday.
