This was a great hotel for our 5 night trip in paradise. We were greeted with the friendly valet gentleman, Adam. Beverly checked us in with a smile and with cold scented towels and pineapple juice. We requested an early checkin and we were lucky we got it! Jackie, the housekeeping manager and Daniel, the hotel manager, greeted us as...

This our fourth stay at the Vive and it never disappoints! Amazing staff, facilities and location. The included breakfast is generous and although the variety is limited it is always fresh and tasty. Free Wi Fi is always a bonus. I love that the hotel supplies beach towels, mats and boogie boards. Another thing I love about this hotel is...

I picked this hotel because it was such a good price and had such great reviews. Normally the lower the price the lower the reviews, it ended up being the best decision for my first trip to Hawaii. Right off the bat I will say that this is what you might call a budget hotel, unless you shell out some...

We so enjoyed our stay here!! The location, inclusive breakfast, beach equipment rentals, amenities, and lovely staff were the best parts! The room itself was a little plain/older in design- but it seemed that most hotels looked about the same in Waikiki. We are looking forward to coming back :)!!

Vive is a very old hotel that has had a renovation. Staff are nice enough. We were lucky to be upgraded to a suit and had a nice view of the beach. Unfortunately the windows are head height so you can only see when standing up!! There's no pool which surprised me. I can't complain tho as I just assumed...

This hotel is very beautifully decorated with paintings, sculptures, and eclectic furniture. They are affordable, do not charge a resort fee and WiFi is free. The only complaint I have is that the air conditioner in my room was too loud.

Incredibly helpful and cheerful staff. We had an issue with out rental car and the staff were more than willing to help; calling the rental company...
