I totally agree.
Both tourism=apartment and tourism=chalet are for detached houses.
With number_of_apartments=* you can specify a building with many
apartments, but not a building like a very big apartment.

To clarify I've found some pictures:

Some of them were formerly (50 to 70 years ago) hotels, the capacity is
from 30 to 80 people. The kitchen is only one for all.

Doing some proposal: is best to create a new tag (like
tourism=vacation_house) or to add a tag to tourism=apartment (like
groups=yes or simply capacity=80)?
