Sivory Punta Cana in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
This boutique destination on the Dominican Republic’s gold coast offers all the amenities of a big resort, but on an intimate scale. Sivoy Punta Cana's secluded beach location gives guests a retreat from reality, but it is nevertheless worldly: the staff serves you champagne upon arrival by helicopter (if you choose), and the wine cellar stocks 200+ vintages. Birds, crabs, turtles and flsh thrive here.
Start your day in the Aquarea complex with a multi-station spa circuit that leads you through the Jacuzzi, steam room, ice fountain, sauna, and bucket and cascade showers. Head down to the beach for your windsurfing lesson, followed by a grilled ahi tuna sandwich from the Blu Bar, served as you lounge in a stone chaise immersed in the warm infinity pool. Stroll on the beach at sunset and return to your room through the meditation gardens. End the day at the Gourmond Restaurant, where you can dine on caviar and vintage Champagne at a table for two in the sand.

Reviews for Sivory Punta Cana
Iâ€™ve heard so may good experiences about Le Sivory that I was dreaming to go there. I thought that the hotel was going to be extremely wonderful because was a boutique hotel. My bad, I thought wrong. I went to Le Sivory the last weekend of September 2017, with my partner, after two hurricanes hit Dominican Republic. Because of these natural disaster, they have to closed two of their restaurant a La Carte and there was just one restaurant opened, buffet style, and for diner you would be able to choose from the buffet and from a menu as well. The logical thing to do in this case, is to give the best service in the remaining one. It wans't the case. Where to start? First of all, the food wasnâ€™t good and there were very few options to choose from. The food was always the same at noon and at night with the exception of the menu which was the same every night. Second, the bread and fruits were not covered and they had a lot of insects around them and top of them. Sometimes they put burned food (French toast I had to ask for some new one) and the staff did not even notice it or we had to ask for a hamburger bread because they put the burger without bread. After asking for something, they did their best to solve the issue or to get you what you need but they didnâ€™t put attention in the details. Third, I asked for some mimosa (cava plus orange juice) and the waitress told me that they were out of cavasâ€¦. I had to go to The Concierge area and talked with someone to obtain some cava for the mimosa. (In this case Jhonny was the person available and he solved the problem right away). They need to be more coordinate it between them. In other hand, when I was in the pool area, I asked for a frozen beverage and the bartender told me that right now wasnâ€™t possible to make a frozen drink because the blender was in the restaurant. Really? Just one blender for a boutique hotel?!?!?! Actually, I was able to see the person carrying out the blender from the pool bar to the restaurant bar and vice versa. Le Sivory was characterized for the details that they have with each guest, for example every day they left a basket, early in the morning, in front of the room with fresh baked bread, fresh fruits, coffee, and juice. I didnâ€™t receive nor one of this basket in my stay with them. The room was old and smell kind of weird and it had a mini fridge where they put the water, the wine, the beer all together in the same temperature. According to what Iâ€™ve heard each room had one mini fridge and a mini wine cooler, at least my room didnâ€™t have separate cooler. The staff is really friendly and helpful. They did their best to accommodate us and to make us feel comfortable but the hotel has to work on his organization and to bring a better service in each area of the hotel. I understand that they close the hotel at the beginning of October 2017 to renovate it and they were going to open again at the end of December 2017. I hope they improve not just that physical space of the hotel but the internal structure of it as well.
I stayed here in July of 2017 for a little under a week. I was in desperate need of a long-needed break from where I live (a densely populated city). I spent some time looking at Tripadvisor and other reviews for beach hotels in the DR, and it was a struggle to find a resort that didn't have DJs, children, and generally people from NON-CITY environments looking to use their vacations to 'have a good time.' I was in the minority among beach-goers: I wanted a musicless, childless, crowdless, read-and-sleep experience with a beach and friendly service. Well, I got exactly what I wanted from Le Sivory. It's worth mentioning that when I arrived there in July, it had JUST changed ownership and they were in the process of rebranding, reconfiguring and generally changing things around. I have no idea what it will be like in the future, but if it stays the way it was, I will be there yearly. Now onto some of the details. The layout is that there are small buildings each with about 2 apartments in them, interspersed throughout this small resort, which is the last one in Punta Cana. The adjacent property is undeveloped palm trees, and the location is about 45 minutes from the airport. Since the there are no children around, no silly entertainment at night, and respectable distance between guests, the experience is truly excellent for the couple or the solo traveler who wants to relax, recharge and catch up on reading. The food was excellent and fresh, with two different types of specialties depending on the day (at the time it was an Asian and a Spanish, I believe, theme). While the ingredients don't change enormously, which I suppose might bother some, they vary the preparations. I didn't mind, because fish, lobster and fruit are items I'm happy to eat daily. I had an all-inclusive package which meant no extra charges for drinks, food and so on and a fully-stocked fridge full of wine and water (the later was replaced daily). The staff was extremely attentive to me, which was a little odd because sometimes they looked at me nervously like I was some sort of undercover food critic. Relax, folks! I read some of the other reviews here of people who complained about 'too quiet' -- folks, do your research, 90% of the Punta Cana resorts are what you're looking for, please don't spoil or punish places that provide for the minority of us not into screaming children and trashed adults seeking a party atmosphere. After leaving this place, I felt extremely lucky, because I'd randomly seen some Instagram pics from some adjacent resorts, which feature very orange people, drinking canned beers with American flags (I guess it was July 4), with DJs, children and a lot of other nightmare-inducing imagery that would've made me un-relaxed. This resort did everything to make me happy, and there's absolutely nothing like sitting on the beach at night 10 feet from your room (which had its own little dipping pool) and listening to the sound of the ocean as a cool breeze passes through you. Thank you!

This is a lovely secluded resort that does not allow children. The personnel go to great lengths to make you feel welcome and comfortable for your entire stay. The food is very good to good depending on which of the 3 restaurants you eat at and what night they are open as they rotate. This an "inclusive" resort. Do not expect any night life as it is for those who just want peace and quiet and read a book by the pool. It does not get crowed (when we stayed there were only 12 couples there which you get very friendly with quickly). The ocean can be very muddy if it has rained a lot as the mountain rivers drain into it. They do have workers who clean the beach everyday which is very nice and sandy. One last thing watch out for the mosquitos (they do spray every 2-3 days) and the "NO SEE UMS" ( bugs that can bite you constantly but you don't see them. They live in the sand so spray yourself) They, also, love to travel and would love to join you on your trip back home and live with you. Again, spray yourself and clothes. Otherwise this was a really great place to relax.

I will state now, I did not stay at Le Sivory and was VERY happy I flew in ahead of time to check it out before I booked it for my wedding. I must clarify the staff was lovely and showed us every highlight of the property for the possibility of hosting a wedding. However, the place is currently in the middle of remodeling and it needs it! Very dated looking. The only thing pretty is the pool, which is the main imagery of their marketing.The grounds were very unkempt! The restaurant was tired and sad, looks and feels like nothing from what you see online. I could go on, with what I felt was very unimpressive, yet I feel bad because the staff was so polite to us. I just want people to understand when they are planning a wedding for people to fly across the country/world, Le Sivory is not ready for that. I also do not want anything pretentious, just to stay at a nice, peaceful, boutique hotel that leaves everyone feeling like they are on a amazing vacation. There are way too many hotels in Punta Cana that surpass this place. I cant understand how it is 4 stars!?! It is one thing to be going through a remodel, but don't fool people online with beautiful website and marketing and say it is 4 stars!
I can not say enough great things about the Le Sivory. From the moment we checked in until we left they were attentive, sweet and accommodating. This hotel is for those who want to rekindle, relax and unwind. There were times it felt like it was just my husband and I. The pool is clean, big and I floated for hours--my only interruption was the wonderful Lorenzo bringing me amazing drinks! I can not say enough about Lorenzo; he literally made our trip. He met us at the pool with our chairs ready and an ice bucket with water each morning. He remembered our favorite drinks and he even arranged special lunches for us. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had breakfast in our room each morning. It was amazing--just called room services and they brought more than what you even asked for--it was always quick and hot! The ocean area was amazing--beds, hammock and a swing (which was my favorite). We did not have any issues with sand fleas. The water was amazing. There was a lot of seaweed but I think because we were between a couple of hurricanes. The food was amazing--especially at the buffet. The chef is so sweet and very attentive. If you want something you just need to ask. He and his staff are 5 star quality. The only issue was had was at the French restaurant--service was so slow we just got up and went to buffet. We were still happy. No need to stress at this place. My only small recommendation to the hotel is to stock the gift show with a few expected items like sun block, flip flops (mens), sun glasses. We really needed more sun block and had to take a bus to find it. This also, turned out to be a fun day. This was the most relaxed and stress-free vacation I have ever been on. My husband and I felt like all our cares melted away when we arrived. We will be back.
