As soon as you walk through the two wooden doors, you are greeted with excellence. Checking took 5 minutes. Trust me you haven't seen rooms like these before. Simply wonderful. I was in love with everything. One thing I judge hotels on is the bathroom and I felt like I was in a penthouse, "yea that how good it was"... More

Concierge/staff is beyond amazing, so helpful and always happy and know you personally. Such a unique experience and hotel for PR (instead of some generic hotel) and the decorations and effort put into this place is A++++. Love it and would recommend to ANYONE!

You know when you look at the photos on a hotel's website and when you get there, it doesn't look anything like that? That is not the case at O:live. The minute you enter the front doors, you feel like you are a tranquil Mediterranean retreat. The rooms are indeed small, but the space is used well. The private terrace... More

The view of the lagoon is remarkably magical! The people here make you feel at home and in heaven at the same time! Everyone should be able to visit the rooftop at least once... But you need to stay here or be a "rooftop member" which ha been money very well spent!!! I just live it here! I come for... More

Hotel decor very unusual, rooms quite small but clean and nowhere to put things so had to leave most of our things in our cases and no desk as described in room details.The outdoor terrace was much bigger than the room, but with a nice view of the lagoon, however some of that space could have been sacrificed to make...

Dear Guest: We do place great emphasis in our decor and ambiance, this is why so many travelers love our boutique hotel and the reason why we were selected as Best Designed Boutique Hotel. However; being a boutique hotel, we understand that sometimes we do not offer big spaces and accommodations that a chain hotel does, but this is what... More

artzy-fahrtzy hotel. Restoration Hardware appearance. Horrible lighting in bathroom. No place to store luggage or contents in the room! There is a very good restaurant attached to the hotel. No coffee in the room but a continental breakfast is brought to the room or served at the rooftop bar. We spent 5 nights and found the staff to be exceptional,... More

Dear Guest: I am assuming that you stay in the petite suite, which is our smallest room in which the veranda is enclosed. May I respectfully suggest the Olive Style Room or the Mediterranean with lagoon views if you decide to give us another chance I can definitely provide a complimentary upgrade. And please know that if this concern was... More

Beautiful location! Lovely breakfast, and the rooftop terrace was amazing! We were a little further from old downtown than we though we'd be, but it was made up with the fact that a beautiful beach was across the street and lots to walk by.

The hotel is very stylish, location is great but as Boutique Hotel Veterans - we've had better. Staff is friendly but when we arrived, we were escorted to our room but weren't offered any sort of a tour nor where any of the hotel room amenities highlighted. Staff didn't even bother to open the veranda doors and show us the... More
