We've stayed in many hotels before, but Vive was an exceptional experience. It was our honeymoon and I relied on my husband to book everything for our trip. Good job, honey! When we arrived, they greeted us with delicious pineapple juice; check in was quick and painless. They mentioned that they provide free beach towels, beach mats, chairs etc. so... More

This hotel was great. For a 3 star hotel, it was awesome. We were very close to the beach and many buses are nearby. The staff is really friendly and helpful. I loved that the coffee, tea, and iced water available all day in the lobby. The simple breakfast in the morning and free wifi were all great touches. There... More

I live here in Hawaii, and I wanted to take my wife on little "staycation." Vive fit the bill perfectly. We stayed in one of junior suites, and it was everything we were looking for. The room was modern, but comfortable. Everything was clean and luxurious. The ONLY downside was that the small fridge did not get very cold. In... More

We only had 1 night at Vive but it was a great stay. We walked in and were given a room straight away still a few hours before normal check in time - greatly appreciated after 24 hours on no sleep! The toilet roll holder fell off and 5 minutes after telling reception, maintenance were fixing it! The rooms are... More

Everything great! The staff is very friendly and the rooms are small but clean! The hotel is located very close to the Wakiki Beach. Beach towels are free. High recommendation! We will be happy to stay in Vive Hotel again. I hope next year: o) ALOHA!

Highly recommended hotel. Staff are very professional while also very friendly. Nice, short walk to the beach and lots of shopping. Breakfast options are limited but taste great. One drink of pineapple juice will have you hooked for life!

We enjoy small-ish hotels with character and a great staff. So, with Waikiki Beach two short blocks away (beach gear happily provided by the outstanding staff at no extra charge), we found no need for a pool or other amenities that accompany a larger hotel. The rooms are small, but beautifully appointed (stylish IKEA eclectic) and immaculate with plenty of... More

We've always stayed at high end, name brand hotels but this time around, we decided to stay here based on a recommendation of a friend. Let me tell you, it was a pretty delightful experience. From the lobby and its swanky and inviting ambiance that extended to our clean room all the way to the friendly and cordial staff. Not... More
