Mostly a good stay.

The vive hotel has a nice appearance downstairs with plenty of seating and nice decor. Breakfast was good. Plenty of nice fresh fruit, bread for toast, hotdog bagels, coffee and juice everyday. You can borrow beach towels and umbrellas at not extra cost. We found the staff easy to approach and helpful when asked. The room was average but had everything you need. The issue we had was we slept so badly here. The noise from the AC was really loud, the wind hits the side of the building so it sounds like you are sleeping in a tent and in the morning you can hear the street noise. We found ourselves rereading the hotels reviews at 3am to find that many had faced a similar problem. For this reason we did not request a room change and just accepted we were only there for 3 nights. We were woken every morning to a beautiful view of a rainbow. We let the staff know on the way out that we had trouble with the noise and they said they would get the maintenance to have a look. We would not expect anymore at this point and feel if we had mentioned it earlier we probably would have been offered a room change no problem because the staff were accommodating in all other aspects... We just couldn't be bothered with the hassle and expected another room may still be noisy

Vacation

Great spot with short walk to the beach. Helpful staff. Clean room. Nothing fancy but quite adequate. They have nice breakfast. The only disappointment is there is no outdoor space. If you get a room facing the busy street you might want to purchase ear plugs. We were on the eighth floor and between the air conditioner and sirens and traffic it can be noisy

Convenient and friendly hotel with great location

Vive is a wonderful property located less than five minutes down the street from Kuhio Beach at the Duke Kahanamoku statue, and since they are so close to the beach they have beach mats, brellies, and towels available for you convenience. They give you a cold glass of pineapple juice and a cold rolled towel which is so refreshing when you check in. The front desk clerk Roger was very professional and helpful for the check in process. If you are expecting the "resort" experience, you will be disappointed with the 275 sq foot rooms without balconies, but the rooms are long and narrow and the queen beds work for singles and couples. If you have a baby or toddler, they offer a pack n play which will make the room seem very small. There is a family room and suite option at 450 Sq feet, but still pretty small compared to other suites. The main reasons why I booked the Vive, was the free Breakfast, location down the street from the beach and surfboard rentals, and the free breakfast which was a decent breakfast. If you need to leave before they serve breakfast, like to go to Hanauma bay, you can order a take away breakfast the day before. The only issues I would say is that the downstairs lounge, as beautiful as it is, is not functional as a breakfast space. Additionally, the property know in advance the occupancy so they could provide an overflow for breakfast when the hotel is full, since going up to your tiny room and eating you breakfast on your bed isn't a good option. The hotel was overall a great value compared to some of the other older run down properties that cost more over the winter holidays
