“I really liked this Hotel it was small and very Pretty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My wife and I spend the end of June thru the 3 of July in this Hotel and from the moment we arrived at the hotel they were very welcoming. The Staff are very friendly and helpful they all speak very good English. The Hotel was very Clean and smell very good the decor of the hotel is very pretty. Just a couple of things It would be a good Idea that the bar on the top floor be open a bit later and the Hotel does not have a Gym if at least they can give you a free pass to a near by Gym would be cool other then that is a GREAT PLACE TO STAY IN !!!

I did not stay at the Olive Hotel, but we found ourselves here a lot. We actually considered switching the last half of our stay from La Concha to Olive. We ate at their restaurant and returned a few days later for morning roof top massages. Their staff is amazingly nice, beautiful grounds, quiet, it's just perfect. When I was waiting in the lobby for my boyfriend, I peaked at the guestbook and saw so many wonderful things their guest wrote. The only downside is no beach access, but if I were looking to spend several relaxing nights in San Juan, I'd stay at Olive in a heartbeat and just deal with finding a chair to rent on the beach. Really, this place is just lovely.

We spent five nights at the end of June through July 3rd at this hotel. It was lovely. The service was excellent and the employees went out of their way to be helpful and attentive. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable and decorated beautifully. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and would visit it again. However, a couple of things I would enhance or change: A more diverse breakfast selection, ensure there is a bartender in the evenings and provide a safe in the room for valuables and access possibly to a gym.

Great attention to their guests! I stayed for two nights and the experience was good. The service from Denise was amazing! She even made breakfast for us and brought it up to the room. Very warm staff. The rooftop has a beautiful view, perfect for evening drinks. It has valet parking which is helpfull. The room has no view but the bed is comfortable and the sheets felt good. I liked the see thru glass shower (perfect for couples). Is walking distance to the beach. I definitely recommended.

We recently stayed three nights in Olive Boutique Hotel. The hotel lobby and Denise were so welcoming! Our room was beautifully appointed, very clean and charming. One little issue: there is not a great deal of bathroom privacy. For many this will not matter, for us it was a little uncomfortable, but Denise moved us to a room that provided a little more privacy right away. Great service! We enjoyed the rooftop each day we were there, despite the rain. The entire staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We had dinner at the restaurant one evening; the food was very good, but the portions (not a complaint, just a comment) were enormous! I was unable to eat even half of my entree. I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends.

Dear Guest:

Our staff, especially Denise was thrilled to read this review. Her efforts to make your stay more comfortable are recognized and this is very important and motivating.

As a note to all of our future guests, the Mediterranean suites have a frosted bathroom door vs. the Olive Style and Petite that have an open space design bathroom. Fortunately, we were able to accommodate you and pleased your needs.

This is your home, see you soon.

Great staff. I want to thank Karina for her great cups of coffee and service. Maria and Denise were very sweet. Housekeeping was excellent left me some delicious brownies. Nice rooftop deck with a small pool. I highly recommend. Rented a car to check out Loquillo beach and the rainforest which I suggest. A little salsa dancing in Old San Juan and the El San Juan Hotel.

We enjoy staying at places that are unique and different, that offer charm beyond the normal hotel experience and O:live Boutique certainly delivered on that experience!

We arrived on a rainy Wednesday afternoon and when we walked in, felt like we already knew the place. The photos of the hotel are not trick photography at all, and if anything the reality is more cozy and intimate than shown. We were offered wine upon our arrival, which we accepted, and then were taken up to see the room, and the rooftop.

Our room had no view, but that didn't matter as we ended up spending our time on the rooftop. It is beautifully decorated, with wonderful seating areas, a nice bartender and awesome evening lighting and atmosphere, not to mention the soothing breezes and view of the lagoon.

Throughout our stay we were continually pleased by the unexpected touches of hospitality and service. The staff at the front desk was incredibly helpful in helping us plan our day - we have wonderful memories of San Juan based on their suggestions, things we might not have otherwise seen.

O:live Boutique Hotel might not be for everyone, but for us it was a fantastic personalized experience that elevated our San Juan experience to another level.
