        They did not return my security deposit ”

        They asked for 100usd security deposit and said that they will return it withing 3 business days after check out. It’s been 15 working days now and they still have not returned the money! I was very careful with the room, kept it tidy all the time, with nothing broken when I left, so as not to forfeit my deposit. So I really don’t understand why they haven’t returned it yet.

        Excellent”

        Overall we had a great stay. Minor hiccups, but the value was worth our stay. House keeping was spotty. On one of the days our room did not get cleaned, their schedule was supposed to be from 730am-4pm. The AC unit is pretty loud when trying to sleep, also noticed the sound of cars passing by (16th floor). Agoda booking fails to mention the details of the resort/amenity fee, which was $12/day. The resort fee covers wifi and beach: towels, mats, umbrellas. During our stay it was cloudy and raining, so we didn't really get to use the beach amenities. The complimentary breakfast was good, which contained a variety of fruits, breads and pastries, teas and coffee. The hotel is walking distance to everything, which was the main factor for our stay.

        Has bus stop downstairs, which makes easier for me to go to the conference centre located in Hilton Resort Village. Near to the beach and a couple of highly popular eateries. Only thing that might not be perfect is that the breakfast is typical America type, which comprises mainly bread, coffee, and few choices of fruits. Nonetheless, this is quite common to many US and Europe hotels.

        Really good location, just 2 streets away from the main Kalakaua Street. Staff is very helpful, and there's 24hrs service available! Breakfast is not much though, just fruits and some pastries. but it's enough to hold till lunch! A bit noisy though, you can hear some of the traffic from your room, but it could be because my room was facing the road. I still could sleep well on their comfortable bed. Otherwise, good value for money!

        This hotel is less than 5 mins to the beach. They have free breakfast, free water and tea/coffee all day. You can borrow beach towels and umbrellas. Its clean and rooms are a decent size. However, the air condition is so loud, its hard to sleep with it on. Also, when you check in you pay an extra $100 freshen on top of that you pay an amenity fee that you aren't told about until they slip the paper on your door. It is $12 a day! Which was not mentioned when I checked in or on agoda.

        Hi Hilda, Thank you for your review. It sounds like you enjoyed all of the convenient amenities that we offer. The amenity fee is stated on the Agoda website while making a reservation. You can find it under the price where it lists what is included in the price, and what is not included in the price. We apologize if Agoda made it unclear or difficult to find. Despite these drawbacks, we hope that this did not heavily impact your total experience while on vacation here on Oahu. We do hope that you choose to stay with us again.

        Wonderful location”

        Vive is a nice boutique hotel. It is two blocks from the beach and to eateries as well as shopping areas if that is what you want to do. The breakfast was a nice surprise as the items were prepared well and the fruit was always fresh. The fusion water was a nice treat and the coffee was great. The room itself (21st floor, Room 2105) was on a nice and relatively quiet corner. The room is laid out nicely but somewhat on the small side if you are going to stay more than a week; we stayed 10 days and heavily packed due to a wedding that we attended. Anyway, for a three to five-day stay, it would work very nicely. If you are looking to book a place in Waikiki this is a place to consider. Staff was exceptionally attentive! Highly recommended.

        Could not fault this boutique hotel, except for the air conditioner noise. The air conditioner is the window mounted refrigerator type, and at night when you want to sleep, they are simply too loud. A recommendation, if possible, is to revert to split system air cons.

        Vive stands out among the big chain hotels in Waikiki. The decor is very unique. The fruit and pastry breakfast spread is not bad. It's three minutes from Waikiki. The front desk has towels and umbrellas for guests to use. The valet parking is 25$/day. Very friendly front desk staff.

        The hotel is in a great location and is very clean with great staff always willing to provide help and information. You can walk from here to the beach and isn't to far a walk from Diamond Head (get up early whilst it's cooler) Breakfast isn't great especially if you want healthier food like eggs/whole grains etc and a few facilities like a gym would be good.

        Vive Hotel is located very close to Waikiki and downtown Honolulu. My wife and I had a stay-cation there and the close proximity to everything made it very convenient. Our room was clean and the hotel looked very fresh. The hotel services were also very nice. The only thing I wish was different was the breakfast. It's not very comprehensive. If you're ok with fruit, some toast/pastries, and hard boiled eggs then you will be happy. I wish there was just a little more selection. Maybe bagels, a waffle machine, cereal, oatmeal (easy with the hot water they have), milk or yogurts.... Something like that. I understand that hot food like eggs, bacon, sausage etc would be more expensive. But a little more variety goes a long way. Overall a great stay. Would happily stay again!

        Aloha Justin, Thank you for your candid review. It’s wonderful to hear you were able to enjoy our location, and hotel services. Thank you for your suggestions with breakfast, we would love to add all those items. Unfortunately, being a smaller property, we do not have the luxury of having a kitchen to provide hot items. We offer a standard continental breakfast which typically consists of a light breakfast with coffee and rolls with butter and jam. As an added benefit we add fresh island fruits and boiled eggs. Despite the above, it’s pleasing to hear your stay was enjoyable. We look forward to your returned stay. Best regards, Vive Management

        Pretty much everything you would expect to get for the price...compared to the higher star hotels.”

        If you want basics with a great location, this one is for you. The airport shuttle company that they use isn't so great. It seems that the shuttle company has set up a business where the owner pays the driver a certain amount and the customers are supposed to pay the driver part of their salary too (in cash)! If the customer doesn't pay the driver the proper amount, they (me) get scoffed at. How is it that the driver isn't angry at their boss for not paying him enough but angry at a customer's gratuity which is not even obligatory? Of all the jobs that I worked at in life, no random stranger gave me free money for doing my job well, I just did my job exceptionally. When someone complemented me, no matter how small, I sure didn't hiss at them negatively. Shame in you shuttle bus driver.

However, we are saddened to hear about your terrible experience with the shuttle company that we work with. We have had a long lasting relationship with that company and have never heard of the drivers demanding for a tip. While I don't know any specifics about how they get paid, they are absolutely wrong for the way they treated you. Please know that we will not take this lightly and I will personally forward your comments to the owner to prevent this from happening from other travelers.

        Boutique in the heart of Waikiki”

        This is a good value, with breakfast, beach gear, and good staff service. 2 blocks from the beach, and walk to Kapiolani Park. Smallish rooms, but well-equipped .

        Convenient, central and comfortable ”

        Situated one block back from the beachfront, restaurants and shopping areas means this place is super convenient but is also far enough away that street noise isn't an issue. Staff are very friendly and happy to assist with requests and recommendations. Rooms are small but comfortable enough for couples and with most of your time being spent at the beach or shopping you don't really need more than that. No gym facilities but it is close enough to parks, courts and outdoor gyms that it's not a problem. Valet service was great, parking costs weren't unreasonable. Breakfast is basic but the 24-hour tea and coffee service is a nice touch. Beds were comfortable, pillows could have been a little more plush but that may just be personal preference. Would happily stay here again.
