We made a pre-paid reservation the first couple weeks of November, and two weeks before arrival, got an email from them saying due to a lack of business, they're closing for another couple weeks, and all reservations have been canceled. What a huge disappointment and terrible business decision. They said "many other properties" were facing the same slow business due to Covid, but only this hotel (as far as I know) has decided to dishonor pre-paid reservations and inconvenience their customers. Bottom line, if you're counting on your reservation being honored, look elsewhere or you could find yourself left in the lurch.

Aloha and good morning WL_Mpls, Thank you for your time in writing a review. We are saddened to see such a poor review. Please give us a moment to address your concerns. We genuinely are sorry we had to extend the closure, the 2 weeks notice time isn't long so you are correct. . We are trying our utmost best to open as soon as possible and we were hoping the Pre Travel Testing program would bring in pent up demand but it sadly was nowhere near what the industry was hoping for. It is not the business decision that we wanted to make however the hotel needs to have a certain amount of revenue on the books to remain profitable to stay open, it doesn’t make sense for us or any business (unless it’s a new business) to have a negative bottom line. We are living n an exceptional time and we are trying our best to adapt as best as possible. Lastly, just to ensure there is no misunderstanding, despite the reservation being prepaid, we are refunding it as mentioned in the formal email. We see the reservation was booked through Expedia and naturally we are not charging them anything. They should most certainly process a refund as the hotel is closed. If you do run into an difficulties, please email us and we can work together with Expedia to get it resolved. Again my deepest apologies WL_Mpls, we really wish we could have opened up as we hoped. Please be safe and take care. -Vive Hotel Staff and Management

We have always cherished Our stay at the VIVE. It is not just a place to stay It is our home in Hawaii. We have always stayed at the VIVE. My wife and I celebrate our Anniversary There every year. We are treated like Royalty. We have got to know almost each and every member of the VIVE Team. They have treated us like family year after year. This year was especially a great year as we got to reward them for the great hospitality they always show us. My wife and I got to enjoy a Pizza lunch with the housekeeping staff. Lots of laughter and great Pizza. So nice to show our Respect to the wonderful Crew that make the VIVE a wonderful place to stay, While also enjoying the Beauty of Hawaii. The Consiere always arranges our entertainment and we always get great 1st class service. Our Sunset Dinner Cruise and Luau experience was outstanding. We also got to enjoy the beach everyday as it is so close to the VIVE. Within walking distance. All our beach items were provided by the hotel... Free if charge.. And we started out each day...with a healthy and delicious breakfast provided also by the wonderful kitchen staff. In all our stay there was So pleasant and we were Thoroughly pleased with our two weeks in Hawaii... Again... Thank You VIVE ... For making our Anniversary... 45th , very Special .

Lovely hotel a couple of blocks from Waikiki beach. Visited for a week at Christmas & had a great stay. The hotel was decorated very nicely for the holidays with Christmas music playing in the lobby. Breakfast buffet was excellent and very fresh. Rooms are quite small but were clean and nicely appointed. Would stay again.

I stayed here with my best friend in 2016 as a graduation trip and the hotel was perfect. It was about two blocks away from the main Honolulu strip & beach, the service was great, it was clean and the rooms were great. If I were to head back to honolulu and I wanted to be in the most accesible place to the beach, shops and atmosphere I would stay here again.
