Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly.Cons: The air conditioning and wind noise in the room was a bit loud.
Pros: Free beach towels, chairs, boogie boards to use Cons: A bit pricey for a small room 3 blocks from the beach. Unsafe street at night
Good locationPros: Vive is close to Waikiki beach, restaurants, and shopping. Helpful staff. Clean and updated.Cons: Room was very small.
All the other reviews were accurate (grin), glad wPros: Attractive, comfortable, close while not on the beach, well-designed and efficient, continental breakfast, friendly and knowledgeable staff, no unhappy surprises. Everything functioned well. Room was remarkably quiet. Safe box, tablet, and free beach accessories (towel, mat, umbrellas, etc) were nice touches.Cons: Room initially appeared small and basic, but actually was well designed and comfortable. No bathroom fan, but passive ventilation worked just as well. A/C quiet, but not really large enough to cool the room much. Mini-fridge nice and did (barely) keep food cold despite warning inside about avoiding perishables! No protein at continental breakfast, just breads and fruits, but copious and delicious. (We stocked up at Food Pantry a couple blocks away.)
Convenient location and outstanding staffPros: The rooms are quite small, but still comfortable. It has vallet-only parking at the premises. But the effort of the staff to please and serve is really what called our attention. Cons: None
