I did not give this place 5 stars because it just wasn't on the same plane as the Hotel Budir - where we had stayed the night before. Also, and at no fault of the hotel, it was fairly empty when we were there - this could be both a positive and a negative (we viewed it as the former) - and the morning fog prevented us from getting to enjoy the view from our room. As regards the room itself, I was less than thrilled with having to climb the iron staircase to get up to our bed; also, it got hot at night and I was forced to choose between sweating (windows closed) and bugs coming in through the windows.
We did love the staff, the food and the outdoor hot tubs. The isolated nature of the hotel was a big plus too.
