Fodor's Expert Review Sivory Punta Cana Boutique Hotel

Playa Sivory, Uvero Alto Rd., Uvero Alto, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic

The best things really do come in small packages at this romantic boutique hotel, which delivers on its promise of expressly personal service and utter tranquility. Zen elements in the architecture, design, and mood of this secluded retreat work well in the natural setting, with indigenous vegetation used in the landscaping. Re-LAX is the operative word with a do-nothing itinerary; the concierges do offer some pleasurable activities and there’s the allure of the spa. In the handsome suites (go water view), a tone of laid-back luxury is achieved with Asian and Caribbean adornments; all have satellite, flat-screen TVs, DVD/CD players, robes and slippers, wine coolers, and minibars. Morning coffee, juice, and pastries are dropped off at your door. At the communal infinity pool, chaise longues are outfitted with comfortable cushions. Three restaurants feature Asian, Mediterranean, and international cuisine, respectively. An all-inclusive plan (with amenities like unlimited select wine bottles) is available but expensive. Secluded, it is best for short stays.


  • caring and accommodating staff (mostly)
  • free, strong Wi-Fi throughout
  • near virgin Atlantic beach, albeit not on the calmer Caribbean


  • no nightlife, and few activities
  • food and waitstaff are frequently cited as disappointing
  • mosquitoes can be a problem
