My husband surprised me with a weekend stay at O:live to celebrate our wedding anniversary - where to begin? The staff is warm and welcoming, friendly but courteous, and incredibly helpful. From the moment you step in, you can tell this is not a cookie cutter chain hotel; everywhere you turn you eye is caught by a detail or accent... More

Do not be fooled by the first drive you have to the hotel. I thought we were at the wrong location. Once we stepped inside it was gorgeous and the staff were ever willing to help and super friendly (everyone from the front desk girls to the valet and housekeeping staff were amazing.. Kudos!) The room is one of the... More

The hotel was well kept, the location was great, the staff was very friendly, the breakfasts were good, and dinner in the restaurant was excellent. The only reason I didn't rate it as a 5 was because we had to keep the A/C in our particular room on full blast in order to combat the humidity. (I think the window... More

Stayed in this beautiful, small but perfect hotel for a romantic getaway. It is just 15 mins from the airport. Stores and restaurants in walking distance. Short distance from Old San Juan. We took the city bus for 75 cents to Old San Juan. It is very simple and direct. Quick ride in a taxi, if bus is not your... More

I have visited this small Boutique hotel with some of my Business friends in February of this year while on Business in San Juan. The property is very well located and in walking distance to a number of larger properties, however it is not a beach property.

Thank you so much for this review! A you said, the O:live boutique Hotel is not a beach property, but we are located right in front of the Condado Lagoon which is why we have the amazing lagoon view. The beach is actually a three minute walk away form our hotel, as you may have noticed. Thank you so much... More

We stayed at the Olive Hotel to celebrate my birthday. The hotel had great decor and the staff are extremely helpful and made the stay pleasant. The rooms were comfortable and are targeted for couples or people who "know each other well". I would highly recommend this hotel if you are on a romantic getaway with your significant other.

While the street and surrounding buildings are a bit shabby, the hotel itself is beautiful. The service we received there was exceptional save for one possibly newer employee (though she tried very hard to be helpful). The location was close to the water, not far from Old San Juan, and near several restaurants.

The Olive Boutique was great place for a romantic little get away without the crowds, noise, and bustle of the tourist crowd at the Marriot down the street. The rustic Mediterranean décor was very nice and reminded me of my time in Greece years ago. The rooftop lounge with a view of the lagoon was a perfect place to sit... More

Amazing boutique hotel.. definitely get the personalized touch. Rooms are very clean and the hotel is very well kept. the roof is absolutely amazing and so is the location!
