“Luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I stayed at the Mediterranean suite. The best part of the room was the see-thru shower. The sangria hour with cheese was just amazing!!.The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful and the location is just about perfect, near boutique shoppes. Overall the experience was great. Karina thank you so much for your time and recommendations

Dear Ray D,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay with us.

I am delighted that you found the hotel to be outstanding in every way whether it be the sexy see-thru shower, or a cocktail in the afternoon at the Rooftop Club. It is always a joy to read that a guest has totally relaxed under our roof and that they wanted for nothing.

Karina is extremely happy for your special mention and that her recommendations were of great help to you.

We wish to see you again for another luxurious stay!

With warmest wishes,
Josh Ortolazza

We stayed here thanks to a gustazo offer. The place is amazing and the service is outstanding. They offer continental breakfast which let me tell you was more than sufficient. The rooftop bar has perfect views of the lagoon. Karina and Shirley were always really attentive. I could not have asked for more.

Dear Javer R,

Thanks for leaving us such a positive feedback about your recent stay at O:live.

I am thrilled to know that you found everything at our Boutique Hotel to be amazing and outstanding. It's true that our continental breakfast is very much enhanced with a variety of options.

I have passed your comments onto Karina and Shirley who are chuffed to pieces to have been individually mentioned.

We hope that you will return before too long so that we will be able to take care of you once again.

With warmest wishes,
Josh Ortolazza

The Olive Boutique was fantastic!!! Excellent location right off Ashford Ave and all the great shops. Approximately 3miles from Old San Juan and 15 minutes from San Juan Airport. Should you decide to rent a car or not... parking not so great, but doable! And, a lot of great restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are nice and the ROOFTOP Bar -- exceptional!

The HOTEL staff is AWESOME they take extra great care of their guests. Need directions, ideas, places to go... Ask, Denise or Shirley at the front desk, these ladies give customer service a new and refreshing meaning!!! :) (gracias mujeres)

Highly recommend this hotel! Wish I could give it a 10 star review. So elegant but comfortable. Small and intimate. You stay right in the heart of El Condado and whatever you want is just steps away. The sister hotel (Hosteria) provides the few things that Olive cannot like access to a pristeen beach with a small cafe to have lunch and ponder the turquoise sea before you. We loved it here and frankly wonder why people we met stayed at the Ritz-Carlton! Olive is luxury, comfort, personal, (don't get me started on the warm, sincere, earnest, personable staff!)...everything you need and want. Right down to the l'occitane bath products and brownies at bedtime with the turn down service and a sweet hand written note to have "suenos dulce"!!!! Thank you Olive hotel. I did and will again!

Dear Darbarama,

Thank you very much for your wonderful review of your recent stay at O:live.

We feel so flattered and excited to know that you would rate your stay with 10 stars! I enjoyed looking at the great photos you took from our Rooftop. I have to stay, you were right in my personal favorite spot. The sunset is from up there is something magical, specially when the lagoon turn to gold.

It's great to learn that you took advantage of the many amenities our guests have here at O:live, including the those at our sister property that's right in front of the beach.

Why stay in a place where you're just a room number, when you can stay at O:live and be treated and taken care of like with family, right? Each one of our staff prides themselves on ensuring that all of guests feel welcome and completely at home and it's great to see that being mentioned here!

We all hope to welcome you back to your 10-star hotel before too long so that we can take care of you both once again.


With warmest wishes,
Josh Ortolazza

Came across this gem of a hotel when booking rooms for a birthday trip and it ended up being the best place I stayed the most while in San Juan. I loved the room and the attention to detail and design. I would start the day downstairs with a continental breakfast and great coffee. Afterward, the staff would arrange any excursions or just call a cab for me to go off and do my own thing. After lunch, I would visit the rooftop for a great cocktail and a soak in the plunge pool! The night ended with small plates and wine, again on the rooftop, taking in the great views of the city beyond.

The staff were more than pleasant and attentive and made me feel like I had paid $1000/night and treated me like royalty. We were welcomed at the sister property nearby for full use of the facilities there, including another great restaurant and an awesome private beach with drink service!

I have traveled extensively both nationally and internationally, and the Olive Boutique Hotel is probably one of the nicest, most comfortable and all-around amazing hotels I've ever visited. I am a huge foodie and could not get enough of the cuisine from the on-site restaurant and was absolutely amazed by the octopus dish!

Room Tip: Only opened the shades and drapes to see what was outside, and although it was a parking deck, we di...

We are all thrilled to considered as your second home and we are delighted that once you arrive you never want to leave O:live Boutique Hotel.

The place is unique, the staff are friendly and kind. All the place is cleaned and smells fresh. In every area of the hotel you feel cozy. I love the way the furniture is set to create the right effect of the theme of the room.

It is as good as it gets to relax in the most trendy part of town. Especially with your partner. The bed was really really comfortable, the service was excellent. Close to everything in the area, restaurants, clubs, bars. The decoration is extremely cozy.
