Five stars? No way! But a lovely view: yes! We stayed six nights in the appartment on the ground floor of the building next to the hotel, paying 450 Euro. I enjoyed the stay although the swimming pool was too cold to swim in and the playground was falling apart. The appartment was old-fashioned (though with typical details), huge and medium equipped. There is a washing machine that works well. All in all, the appartment and the playground could use a make-over. Now it feels a bit like living and sleeping in a Swedish brocante ('loppis'); or 'kringloopwinkel' for the Dutch readers ;-). The host Alfredo is very friendly and speaks good English. Wifi is available next to the office of the hotel. The restaurant is ok. The last part of the car drive reaching the location is challenging for people that are used to flat land. I would recommend arriving at daytime the first time. Would I stay here again? I guess I might, but in one of the rooms asking for a reasonable price.
