“Great decor, service, homey, rooftop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012 via mobile

We stayed at Olive Boutique Hotel for one night prior to moving to the St Regis Bahia Beach Resort for four days. Highly recommend this property. The decor throughout the property was well-conceived and presented, with a Mediterranean theme. We love Italy, Spain, France and Africa, so tailor made for us. Service was sensational, particularly from John at the front desk. The new rooftop lounge is beautiful, with great decor, fantastic music mix, comfortable mini-rooms and a bartender. We had dinner in the restaurant as well, and it was also very good, with the kitchen staff closely watching for our feedback on their work. Only one negative, the wifi did not work on the roof when we were there.

Stayed December 2012, traveled as a couple

Thank you so much for this great review! It makes us very happy when guests stay for a short period and end up wanting top come back! The feel and concept of the hotel was designed so delicately, so that every guest felt like they were on vacation in different parts of the world. Actually, we just won America's and World's Best Inspired Boutique Hotel, which validates all the hard work put into every single detail and area of our boutique property. We would like to thank you once again for this great review and hope to have you back at O:Live in the near future!

we had a grate time it is one of the best boutique hotels in the world. if you like small hotels with a unique service this is the place to stay .it has a Mediterranean resturant it is very nice and food was very good . the top roof pool is something you have to see. the owner is the designer of the hotel and he did a grate job.

My only regret about staying at O:live is that I didn't do it until my last night in San Juan! What an exquisite experience. Loisse and Fernando are both wonderfully warm and passionate. You feel like guests in their stunning home, rather than a hotel. Manager Edgardo and the rest of the staff are the utmost professionals, while remaining friendly and inviting.

The just-opened rooftop club is gorgeous, with a striking view of the lagoon and a pool that looks too beautiful to swim in (but I did anyway!) Rooms are lush and cozy, with luxurious, glass-enclosed showers. And chef Nicolas's creations at OIivia restaurant are not to be missed!

Hello Andrew! It was a real pleasure to meet you on the Rooftop Opening weekend. We really enjoyed the conversation and your company! Thank you for all the positive comments about our staff, they sure go the extra mile to make our friends feel at home. If you got the feeling that you were in our home rather than in a hotel, is because we really felt that you were a friend rather than a guest. Visit us soon and bring more friends!

Another Gem created by our friends in San Juan. This luxurious Boutique Hotel has turned into my favorite new place in San Juan. Being a local for many years is not easy to find new amazing places like this, but Olive has managed to provide us with that experience. Come here for an amazing Lodging, Fun, and entertaining experience and you will not regret it. Love ya guys and good luck.

This 12 room gem of a hotel situated mere steps from Condado's beaches is delightfully charming. The decor makes you feel like you were dropped off in France but with an extraordinary and friendly Puerto Rican staff. This place is beautiful and the rooms, quaint and tastefully done. The Olivia Restaurant downstairs is superb as well.
