“Lovely Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

They get many things right: great staff, wonderful roof bar with free weekend goodies, nice continental breakfast. For us the major drawback is the bathroom layout. We're not squeamish but -- even after 42 years -- privacy is expected.

Excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. From the moment you arrive to the time you leave, the hotel staff will do everything to make your stay an enjoyable experience. This really is a "boutique hotel" in the best sense, from the unique décor to the relaxed friendly atmosphere. Like another reviewer the only negative we had was the lack of hot water. However this did not detract too much from what was an otherwise perfect stay. We will be back.

Room Tip: They only have 15 rooms, but they are all good.

Had such a pleasant stay at the Olive! I work at a Boutique Hotel in Chicago so I was anxious to test out this hotel to see what it had going on. It really was the epitome of a "boutique" with such a small number of rooms. I loved the decoration and inspiration behind the design, from the lobby to the hallways to the outdoor lounge - it felt like a European getaway in Puerto Rico! I tried the complimentary sangria, one of the paninis, and had the continental breakfast in the morning. Everything was delicious! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the surrounding area. Check in/ checkout was a breeze. Only regret was not getting in the pool or having a massage on the roof... maybe next time.

The amazing customer service here is unparalleled. I have never seen such an attentive staff that really cares about your experience. I really can't say enough about how wonderful they are. The hotel is beautiful also. The only downside is that our shower didn't have any hot water.

The entire hotel was really beautiful. We didn't want to leave the rooftop bar and terrace! It was a lovely experience. Nice fluffy robes and L'occitane products! The only negative was that the restaurant was not open on Monday but otherwise their breakfast was great and service was wonderful! Everyone there was extremely friendly!

Room Tip: We stayed on a Monday and their restaurant is closed on that day...We would have preferred to just s...

It is no wonder why this hotel won the best boutique hotel in the world - beyond being a lovely hotel with terrific amenities, a fabulous rooftop bar and a great location, this hotel has some of the best service I've ever experienced. The team was warm and welcoming even before we arrived and it was clear they enjoyed interacting with their guests. No request was too much for this exquisite team. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Puerto Rico! Thank you to the staff for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: It may be worth asking about the view if that is important to you. Some rooms look out onto the wall...
