Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Hotel's Favourite
My wife an I decided to visit Oahu for our bleated honeymoon (married in 2020 during covid so no travel then) and after some research we came across the VIVE Waikiki hotel and we are glad we did. Our first introduction to the hotel was through the valet service. We decided to rent a car to give us the freedom to explore the island on our own time. We dealt with several team members at the valet service during our stay, and from the first encounter to the last was always a pleasant experience. We were always warmly greeted, made sure we had what we needed for the day and had the car ready to go in no time. Without having to worry about parking downtown, this was a great option for us. Down the elevator, we entered the beautiful lobby and had an easy-as-can-be check-in. We were even greeted with fresh pineapple juice and a lei greeting (add-on service option). As I said, check in was super easy and we were off to our room in no time, and they even gave us some documents and tips for places to visit in the are and events like live music and fireworks around the area. Our hotel room was perfect for what we needed including A/C, tv, fridge, desk space, safe, quick wifi, shampoo/conditioner, hair dryer and a bathroom with a hanger for wet clothes after a day at the beach. The turn down service when requested was always ready when we got back to the hotel and they even left us some treats on check in as well as one to celebrate our honeymoon. A wonderful welcoming touch to the experience. One of the highlights of the stay was the complimentary breakfast each morning. They always consisted of a selection of delicious pastries/breads and fresh fruit like pineapple, melon, strawberries, mango and oranges. They also had eggs (omelette or hard boiled) and a protein (bacon or sausage). I can't forget to mention the star of breakfast, the fresh ice cold pineapple juice. We tried to get as much of this as we could as it was so good. The hotel also offered anything you might need for a day out on the beach. They have a room dedicated to beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and even a bin that had a pair of goggles and snorkels (saved us a rental when we visited Hanauma Bay. They also have water refill stations near breakfast, the lobby and one on the valet service floor. Overall, we are both so happy that we chose to stat at VIVE. It had everything we needed for our trip and was so close to amenities like corner stores and too many restaurants to count. Make sure to sign up for their membership to get some great deals. You won't be dissapointed stay here. Thank you VIVE.

The employees were excellent. However, I shouldn't find out that the hotel doesn't have free parking for its guests when I arrive in my rental car. That in itself is a deal breaker for me and my future business with Vive. The single pane windows also makes it hard to sleep if you're a light sleeper like myself.

Aloha cblakemorejr, Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We truly appreciate your decision to spend your time in Waikiki with us, and we hope you had an enjoyable stay overall. We recently received your feedback regarding the parking situation, and we want to express our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience you experienced in this regard. We understand that parking can be a significant consideration for our guests, and we strive to provide transparent information about our parking options prior to arrival. As you mentioned, while we do not offer free parking, we do make every effort to communicate the parking fees through various channels, including our website, partners sites, pre-arrival emails, and confirmation letters. Our aim is to ensure that all guests are fully informed about any additional costs associated with their stay. We also take pride in offering one of the lowest rates for parking, albeit self or valet parking compared to other options in Waikiki. There are no hotels in Waikiki that offer free parking as being inclusive as every hotel will capitalize on parking due to the denseness of Waikiki. We understand that this may not fully alleviate your concerns, but please know that we continuously evaluate our services to ensure they meet the needs and expectations of our guests. Your feedback is invaluable to us as it helps us identify areas for improvement, and we will certainly take your comments into consideration as we strive to enhance the overall guest experience. Once again, we apologize for any inconvenience you experienced, and we hope that despite this issue, you were able to enjoy your time in Waikiki. Thank you for your understanding and for choosing Vive Hotel Waikiki! -Vive Staff and Management

My partner and I stayed at Vive for our first time in Oahu (first time in Hawaii, too!) - SO glad we choose Vive. The rooms were on the smaller side, but this was just right for us as we were a party of 2 and spent most of our time exploring Oahu anyway. We would have loved a balcony to see the view too. We paid for ocean view and you could only see a small part of the ocean through the window, mostly due to location and other tall buildings around. Otherwise rooms were very clean and the overall location was very convenient being close to many restaurants and the beach. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Shout out to Arnel and Richard with the valet team! They were definitely the highlights of our stay with Vive. They were especially attentive and went out of our way to give us recommendations, make sure we had enough gear, and make us comfortable! We loved the breakfast options (seemed like they had a small rotating menu with lots of fruits and pastries) and free beach gear as well. Would definitely recommend staying here and would love to stay with Vive again on our next trip.

Overall, very satisfied. Front desk staff friendly, helpful. Room was nice and clean but tiny bathroom. 5 minute walk to the beach and hotel provided complimentary beach towels, chairs, and umbrella. Expensive to rent on the beach. The included continental breakfast is a plus. Food trucks just steps away for eating out. Considering the location and reasonable cost for Waikiki, well worth a look.

My wife brought me here for my birthday, the hotel is clean, the rooms are very nice. More importantly the staff makes you feel welcome. The valet and the front desk are very welcoming. Breakfast here is delicious (comes with your stay) hotel towels, chairs and mats are complimentary during your stay. And your about 5 minutes to the beach. Also the area feels safe. There are a lot of tourists here and there is a comfortable police presence.

This was such a nice spot to stay in, right in the heart of Waikiki within walking distance of everything, and/or at least a short drive. We were initially looking at the typical Hilton’s and Marriott’s but they were too expensive so it was hard to justify it. We finally stumbled upon this one because it had free valet parking if you’re military, and it ended up exceeding our expectations!

The staff and location were wonderful. The front desk was very helpful upon check in. Even gave us some fresh pineapple juice! They provided a great breakfast and coffee/water throughout the day. We had a rental car and the valet had our car ready for us in minutes of calling to collect the car. We were able to go in and out whenever we wanted and as often. They had all the beach gear anyone could need for use at no additional charge.
