I don't think you'll find many hotels that are as brilliantly situated as this one. If it were just a hut I would still happily pay the room rate (well, you get my point).
The place isn't luxurious. If they were charging the same sort of money in a city, they'd go broke.
I must admit I had a good deal. After a long drive from Madrid, trying to head for France, two carsick children made us rethink, and go here (I suspect my wife had had the plan from the onset, since driving the winding 14km long entrance road without a reservation isn't a good plan with two carsick children, is it, dear?). We got a family room (probably sold as junior 'suite' to couples), which from the floorplan is significantly bigger than all the other rooms. The couch was a foldable bed, which was barely adequate to fit a 5 and 7 year old, but for our purposes OK. The room rate was hardly above a normal room, and the view spectacular.
There are no major problems of any kind with the place. Perhaps our bed was hard and not really comfortable. The multifunction whirlpool massage bad a bit of an attraction. The breakfast was good but pricey with the children being charged full, and staff had difficulties keeping up with the guests. The dinner overrated. In general howver no problems with the staff as there are plenty and they are helpful.
As I say, the location did it all. We ended up staying another night, and hiked up the mountain. Nature there is brilliant, and the hike excellent.
