“Quaint and Cute”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

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.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms have open bathrooms and some don't. If you don't want your roommate to se...

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.

Room Tip: See if you can get one with a good view--we didn't think to ask, and therefore left the shades d...

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 and have a drink after dinner. Aside from the occasional sound of construction for terrace upgrades, the place was generally very quiet and there were no crowds or lines. The facilities were kept very clean and the staff was quite friendly and accommodating. The continental breakfast was nice and it was easy to catch a taxi or the bus to Old San Juan or Isla Verde. We were very pleased.

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! Much better than staying at one of the bigger "resorts" on the beach. Only downside is our room didn't have much of a view ...

This hotel offers the perfect rustic, romantic experience. The rooftop club is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink. The rooms are great for a sensual experience with your significant other (and the website is right, it's certainly not for the shy!)

The beds are entirely comfortable and will leave you feeling refreshed. Showers are sound proof.

The staff are very helpful and friendly, and they make you feel so welcomed.

It's also just a short walk away from the beach, many shops, bars and local restaurants. It's certainly in a tourist area, and I just know that you'll have a wonderful time!

I am annoyed because I decided to stay here based mostly on Trip Advisor reviews, which I am now convinced are fake. This hotel is well-decorated but completely ill-designed. For example, our room had a full-sized bed (not Queen) in a tiny room in which the bed directly faces the toilet, to which there is NO DOOR. Our room also had no window, because of construction immediately outside! It was an awful experience to sleep/get ready in. Don't stay here. Just don't. The breakfast is nice and the rooftop gorgeous (although the bartender can't mix drinks and they don't open when they say they do). Only sleep here if you like watching your significant other on the toilet, and hate light/windows in your room. It's pretty but a complete rip-off otherwise.

Room Tip: We stayed in a petite chambre -- a minuscule chambre is more correct. Pick a bigger room!
