We wanted a quiet and secluded vacation and Sivory exceded our expectations. The "all inclusive resorts" that americans love is not what these two americans wanted! 55 rooms sounded like just the right size and it truly was.
The rooms were amazing and views from anywhere are spectacular. Great beds and the lounge patio is really a nice touch. I think 2nd floor is the best bet for any traveler unless you insist on the private plunge pool. The stocked wine fridge was a nice touch.
The grounds were pristine and tended to almost daily. The maintenance staff was quiet and hardly seen (unless you looked). And the often complained about mosquitos? We never saw a single mosquito as the grounds were sprayed daily.
The food was awesome! Sure everyone likes a huge menu, but part of being pampered at an exclsusive resort is being presented with authentic cusine. Sivory did not disappoint and truly delivers a great dining experience. Oh and the wines.....try finding a better selection in the DR!
The pool was great and never crowded. The pool bar was perfect and the food menu had just what you needed after long hours of good drinks and too much sun :-)
The beach was so picturesque we didn't want to leave. In fact we stayed on the beach under the cool shade of the palm and coconut trees all day everyday. The water was beautiful and the view to die for. On any given day there were less than 10 people on the beach. Now that is what we called secluded!
The staff was excellent. Very helpful and friendly. And we learned something new about customer service. You get what you ASK for. If we needed help they were right there. If we wanted privacy they stayed away. Perfect!
Spa. We loved it and next time we will get massages everyday. Maybe more.
Activities. There was a guy who could arrange any excursion you want. We only had to tell him once "no thank you" and he left us alone all week. Be prepared to travel a few hours for these if you think you might want to do an excursion.
Complaints? We had one small issue with our room at check in and we were moved immediately to another.
Things to know:
It's quiet. No music or screaming parties. Even the few kids there were quiet.
It's remote. Over an hour by taxi and it's not close to any shopping etc.
It's small. Only 55 rooms. While we were there we never saw more than a dozen people in one place. This is not a mega all inclusive resort.
Spanish. If you speak Spanish your in good shape. if not, be patient as they are pretty good at English too.
Rooms. The basic rooms are just fine so save your money.
Tipping. At Sivory you sign a ticket for all food and beverages. You can write in a tip and be sure to include your servers name!
Beachs. All DR beaches are public so don't be afraid to walk and explore. And bring your own snorkeling gear as there is a reef just a short walk down the beach.
last it must be said that all the negative reviews seem to say the same thing, they wanted what you get at a big resort. That is not what Sivory is about. So if you want crowds, all you can eat buffets, loud music, and drunk idiots go to Cancun.
Overall this is an amazing resort. If a private vacation is what you want look no further than Sivory. Thank you for a truly romantic getaway that we will never forget. We will be back!
