Sivory Punta Cana Boutique Hotel
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA great boutique hotel that offer the same type of service at a 5-star resort. The resort offers great food options and amazing, attentive staff. Bring bug spray however, as the resort is situated in an area where bugs are a plenty. This is a small-scale hotel that is suited for couples who want the same services as a 5-star resort, in an intimate setting, and for better value.
OverviewThe award-winning Sivory Punta Cana is located on the most secluded stretch of Punta Cana beach. Embrace the gentle solitude of this intimate resort, with holistic spa escapes, artful restaurants and a devotion to the pleasure-seeking lifestyle destined to transport the most discerning of travelers to a state of complete relaxation.
A hidden gem, but with a few limitations. Super friendly and attentive staff, a few of which I'd like to identify and thank:Dahiana Marte, Flor Marte, Jonathan Guerrero, and Juan Melo (restaurant). They seem to have their key players in key positions. There's a bit of a drop off in the level of service after you deal with the main POC's there. Dahiana assisted me from the first phone call to make the reservation, personally met us outside upon arrival, and made sure we were happy throughout. The main manager/perhaps one of the owners gave us a brief welcome as well, as we checked in. We were treated very nice at the front desk and were provided with an bit of an upgrade, I believe due to availability. A little further away from the majority of the Punta Cana locations. It will take you a little longer to get into town if you do plan on coming and going often. We didn't do the all-inclusive, but we did get the breakfast included. The breakfast was quite delicious and plentiful. Quite a romantic setting, super quiet, stars shining bright in the sky. Jacuzzi inside the room, one outside (but old and didn't work), by the personal private pool. Overall, the personal service made it feel like you spent 10 times more than you actually did, but at times there were some basic things that were lacking.
Nice place , excellent villa's , very nice garden, great service from the staff, fast wifi and excellent food and great wines.The perfect hide-away. But when we visited just a couple of visitors, The nearest place to see and meet other people is at a 40 minutes, us $ 90 return drive, the hard rock cafe or further in Punta Cana. It was excellent but a bit to quiet for us , so we left earlier as expected with having to pay for the period we were expected to stay.
My husband and I returned about a week ago from the most enjoyable 5 night trip we've had in years. 5 vs 4 Stars:While it is too early to say this resort is at a Ritz or Four Seasons-level, it is very easy to imagine it getting there! We choose to give it 5 stars instead of 4 in the meantime because of the excellent nightly rates at the moment alongside truly excellent food and indulgent service. We are definitely going back.With only 50 rooms and an adult-only property, we enjoyed a lot of personal attention and customized drinks and other requests - royal treatment almost! We felt totally indulged, which is a special feeling that is hard to find even at resorts 2x the price of this one. Yes, there are areas of the resort and our room that need updating, but for us were easily to look past considering the special rates, food, service, location, and expereience. There are so many wonderful things we want to share with you, so bullets are best. We hope this is helpful!- Food: Do all inclusive, food is AMAZING and so are drink! With all inclusive versus half or full board, everything -literally everything and as much as you want is included. Yes minibar, yes champagne and wine in minibar, yes snacks, yes room service, yes yes.- Food: Do not miss the lobster and shrimp dishes that are fabulous.- Food: Order the Dominican Republic chicken (not on menu) it is killer! One order is 1/2 full chick.- Food: Lunch poolside on pool chairs is divine.- Produce: The country grows tons of fruit and veggies, so the salads and smoothies where divine.- Spanish: Yes, speaking a little Spanish helps a lot here (you are in another country), but there are people in each department that speak great english that if you really need something they can help sort things out.- Bottled water: is included in all-inclusive and they do not skimp on the alcohol.- Coffee: is more like expresso, so enjoy it 1/2 cups at a time.- Coffee: brought to room each day at 6:30 AM is a wonderful way to start day!!- Pool: is wonderful, lots of towels.- Grounds: Lush property full of plants and flower, tons of coconut trees, very romantic and beautiful.- Bugs: They spray for bugs each night (or every other night). Sand flies were not an issues, but one night when the wind stopped we did have to use bug spray.- Service: Be patient and relax at dinner...enjoy wine & drinks and sit back for 1.5-2 hours- Beach Service: If you are going to the beach, we suggest that you order your drinks at the bar and then tell them you are going to sit. They will not come and look for you, but once they know you are there some bartenders will check in on you if you ask them.- Beach: is stunning and clean, no watersheds needed. - Beach: the wafter was a bit rough cause of the wind when we were there, but we found a spot close to the breakfast side of the beach where the waves were not as strong. We were able to go for divine dips every day in the warm water.- Room: was great - breach front is AMAZING if you can swing it!- Room: Flowers on our bed were amazing!- Room: They supply amazing insense in your room each day; great for "mood setting" :).- Room: For our anniversary they drew us a bubble bath with flower peddles for the most amazing post-dinner experience with chilled champagne & chocolate covered strawberries!- All inclusive: This IS the way to go!!! We had champagne in our frig and snacks and whatever we wanted. The food is amazing, fresh, and high quality.- Manager's Reception: DO NOT miss this - they go all out and it is amazing!- Security: they have a guy 24 hours a day on the beach making sure there are no issues, but because we are the last resort on the beach there was almost no traffic and zero people beach vendors. It was glorious!- Neighboring Resorts: Zoetry is next door, so my husband and I walked over to check it out...we quickly returned to Sivory because it is 100x better and more peaceful, more intimate, and less crowded!- Turndown service: don't put your do not disturb on after 5PM if house keeping comes by and sees it they will not come back unless you call them and request it.- Taxi & Airport!! Let them arrange your taxi; it may cost a few extra dollars, but it is worth it. If you do, the taxi drive will meet you all the way outside of the terminal, at the end and will be holding a sign. It is a good 45-60 minute drive. If the hotel handles it the taxi can be billed to your hotel bill which is nice to not have to have all the cash. You will need $ for tipping cab driver though. Do not cut it close going back to PUJ. Leave 1 hour for the drive and 2 hours at the airport. PUJ is a huge airport and you need the full two hours to make it through everything and all the shops.- ATM: There is no ATM machine, so be sure to bring cash. - Tipping: The staff is truly wonderful and you will want to tip them, but there is no real way to do that currently on your bill at each meal. So, you will want to bring cash to tip individuals at the end. Overall from start to finish we had a truly amazing time! Make friends with the bartenders and wait staff - they are so friendly and helpful. They truly helped make our stay amazing. If you are stressed or annoyed, have more rum! :)Everyone at the resort was wonderful, but there were a few staff who really made big impressions on us because of their amazing service, hard work, and friendly attitude.

Just got back from a week at Sivory, and the bottom line is that we'll probably return. This is a place to go if you want quiet. There is no entertainment, no beach volley ball, no nothin'! The beach is spectacular! We are beach people, and have been to beaches from Cape Cod to Montauk, to all over the Caribbean, and this is the most beautiful we've seen. Wide, white sand beaches with large stretches of undeveloped land, warm turquoise Atlantic ocean, with waves big enough to play in. And at Sivory, we were often the only couple on the beach - no intrusion of other people's cigar smoke, boom boxes, etc, and no fighting for a chaise. Nobody on the beach!The room was also very nicely done. We had a beachfront suite with a plunge pool. The plunge pool is pretty unnecessary, but it's nice to be able to walk straight off your patio and onto the beach and into the water. Most of the beachfront rooms, however, were visually blocked from seeing the ocean from the patio. Ours had a dune that may even have been constructed just beyond our patio. It would be a simple fix to open that up and to create the visual experience that we took that room for. Also, Sivory delivers coffee and pastries to your door in the morning, but for the last 3 or 4 days forgot to include the coffee. Strange...Food was adequate. There are three restaurants, one of which is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - the other two (Asian "fusion" and "French") alternate days. The Asian restaurant was pretty forgettable. The French was adequate. The main restaurant was the best of the three. I am what is best referred to as a "pescatarian" - mostly vegetarian with some fish. I found the fish to be mostly unappealing, and there were actually no vegetarian offerings (other than my favorite mozzarella and tomato salad). So, ordering was a challenge. The best part of the restaurant was our waitress, Yubelkis (Yuby, pronounced Juby). She was friendly and sweet, remembered our preferences, and taught us Spanish at every meal (quizzing us at the next meal). Yuby is special and made our stay that much better.But the selling point is the size (small), the ambiance (QUIET), and the spectacular beach. Go there if that's what draws you.
The two hour trip from Santo Domingo was worthy. Very nice facilities, our room was excellent (more than we expected from photos), food and staff were very friendly and helpful. We tried the spa and unfortunally, I have to say that is my only observation, if I have to compare the service from other spas in Dominican Republic, I think the spa services at Sivory are overrated and/or overpriced for just a scrub as facial, please be sincere with guest of what they are going to receive and this will help to clarify expectations.
