Wonderful place. Really cannot say enough about the great staff and the hotel itself. The room was amazing. Very large and has a glass shower in the middle. So if you are traveling with someone shy, oh well.... you won't be after this trip. Only comment we can offer is the location appears a little "sketchy." It is on a side road / alley and decently lit. We never felt unsafe, but we are two big guys that don't scare easily. The staff is very helpful and will bend over backwards to accommodate your every need. The rooftop bar has a "you are a local" feel with friendly hotel guests chatting as if they knew each other for years. Fantastic restaurants nearby (Oceana was so good that we went twice). We didn't go to the beach, but it is right across the street. Overall a positive stay and would likely stay again.

Neat little place...they pack a lot in a little space. Staff was amazing.. would do just about anything for you... very clean and professional.

Hotel is centrally located and staff is extremely friendly. I would stay here again when i visit san juan,

It was the best trip I ever had. The staff always cater to your needs and is always nice and smiling. It's not a big hotel but it's a true 5 star hotel

Me and my wife enjoyed this trip to the utmost. Great location, very friendly people. The balcony had a beautiful view, so all business meeting were up there with good atmosphere. We highly recommend this hotel.

To me, it does not have the level to be an Small Luxury Hotel of the World.

Perfection! We were amazed from day 1. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. We will be back again and again .

This is a beautiful hotel in a very good location. It offers nice touches but lacks the basics. We paid extra for the mediterranean room to get a private bathroom; semi-private is a better description, since you can actually still see through the frosted glass. The room also lacks a closet and has few hooks to hang things -- towels, wet bathing suits, nice clothes, etc. The small armoire is too short to hang a dress, for example. So we were tripping over our belongings all over the room -- and this room wasn't meant to be one of the "small" ones. The room was also quite noisy: ongoing construction (not that anyone told us in advance) rattled the room every weekday, and noise from the rooftop bar kept us awake Friday night until 3:00 am. The construction supposedly will end in December 2014, but the bar noise presumably won't. Breakfast was a strange mix of luxurious fresh fruit and really cheap-seeming bread products, cookie-like granola, and essentially no protein. There's only so much that brownies at the bedside each day and unlimited bottled water can make up for. It's also worth noting that the staff really were quite pleasant and friendly.

Pros:the staffs are really friendly and helpful, makes me feel warm. The hotel design is special and nice, gives me the privacy and quietness I want. The location is very convenient, 15 mins cab to old San Juan and to airport. Great restaurant on first floor and around. Just make sure you make appointments and ask the businesses hour. (Most only open for dinner, and 3 days a week) Cons: I reserved a city view room which cost around 250 per night. With similar standard I think I am missing something: no table, no chair, no tissue box, no teeth bush. A window faces the parking lot and 2 buildings that can not be pened. This disappointed me most since I am not a ac person, with the wind in San Juan, I will feel much better if I can open the window. The view on root top is nice but there is mosquito which gives me 2 bites within 5 mins every time I go. What a pity.

Beautiful hotel, perfect for romantic getaway. Attentive staff, love everything! Would stay here again. Only negative thing is that room lighting is not the best and loud bathroom fan, which can not be turned off if you want to have the bathroom light on.

This place is amazing, service was great, very personal. vintage look, rooms great and the patio upstairs has a great view.

Amazing adult hotel. Very Romantic. Location is walking distance to high end shopping, beaches, restaurants, and nightlife. Hotel looks exactly like the photos. Staff goes above and beyond to ensure you have a wonderful vacation. Taxi from airport is about $20. Major rental car company 1 block from hotel. Hotel breakfast is european, not continental-lots of fruit,cheese,meat--Delicious! Area felt very safe even late night-lots of police walking on the street. Hotel can arrange excursions or tours. Very nice rooftop bar.

This hotel might not be for everybody. It's small, but it's filled w/ little treasures. We booked a "petite" chamber which was, indeed, petite. It held a double bed, nightstand and armoire. Not even room for a chair. If we'd planned to spend much time in our room watching TV and having room service, Olive would not have been the right place. We went out and about, seeing the beauty of San Juan and Puerto Rico, and the hotel staff were very helpful in this regard. The interior decoration is beautiful in a pleasant, funky way - not grandiose. The continental breakfast each morning was delicious - fresh fruits, great coffee. We felt like we were not faceless names, given VIP treatment the whole time we were there. Maybe not for those who love cookie cutter megaresorts, but we thought it was wonderful.

My experience at olive Boutique hotel was wonderful . looks just like the picture and wonderful services .

Excellent! Wonderful small hotel. Staff was very accommodating and helpful in every way.

We had an amazing stay! The staff and the room were excellent. If you go, make sure to visit the rooftop bar, it is a hidden treasure of the city.

The hotel decor was beautiful and the location is great. The hotel was right next to the entrance of a beach and casinos. For some reason the sheets were dirty when we arrived, but the staff was quick to fix any issues we had. The front desk staff helped us make reservations, called us taxis, made recommendations, and just took really good care of us.

First time visitors to the O:live hotel. We really liked it. Very personal - so different to the chain hotels like the Marriotts and Hiltons.

We booked this as a five star property, understanding that it is a boutique property and in our opinion it was! The breakfast was a typical continental in a small nice hotel, and the coffee was incredible. The restaurant for dinner was exceptionally good, and again the service impeccable. The room was small, but we booked the smallest room and were not disappointed. The bathroom was huge, bedding wonderful , room clean as could be and the electronics would have intrigued my teenage children, although it took us a while to understand since they were state of the art. All in all, I do not see why anyone could say anyting but nice things about this property. When we arrived, the front desk was gracous and accomodating, and again, nothing but excellent service. I would happily book this property again.
