What a great little hotel! Small, quiet with an awesome, helpful, friendly staff, who'll help you with everything from suggestions on where to eat, where to go and how to get there, wakeup calls and help booking tours and airport shuttles. The hotel offers complimentary breakfast, is only a few steps to Avenida 5 and a short walk to the beach. This part of town is also more mellow than further south (closer to the port) where it's more crowded and a lot louder. Amenities are basic, but rooms are clean with air-conditioning and a fridge. You can even dock your iPod into the alarm clock.

Both times I've been to Playa I've stayed here - can't say enough good things about the place. It's just off Quinta Avenida - so it's not too loud at night, but still centrally located and you can easily get to the ADO bus station or the docks (15-20 minute walk, or quick taxi ride).

The breakfast is delicious, the rooms are nice, I love the pool and outdoor shower and the staff are friendly and glad to help you arrange tours and activities.

Great hotel and friendly staff. Free breakfast (which is awesome). Only con: i was never sure what time the front desk was open, which made it hard to communicate with them.

Quiet, clean, friendly, tropical, safe, convenient and excellence in concierge. The breakfast were varied and plentiful. The only complaint would be that the beds were very firm and the king size was two doubles put together. Regardless, we would definitely recommend this hotel.

We just returned from an awesome trip to Playa Del Carmen. The Bric Hotel and it's staff were fantastic! They really made us feel welcome, helped us organize all of our excursions, booked massages for us, suggested places for us to dine on 5th street (which is literally 20 feet away, but still somehow doesn't add any noise to the quite location of the hotel) - and overall made the trip absolutely fantastic! We already miss it! Thanks again to Gustavo and everyone at the Bric for making it such a fantastic trip.

Great spot, helpful staff. Private, charming. It's a small and simple hotel, but wonderful none the less. The pool wasn't that warm, but who needs it when you are blocks to the beach. walking distance to main street restaurants etc...

The hotel is situated on a lovely property and is small and simple but has plenty of comforts such as air conditioned rooms and private terraces as well as a refrigerator. The included breakfast was great. The real difference that sets this hotel apart from hotels that cost much more is the staff. They are warm and friendly, extremely helpful with any of your needs. Mark my words, by the time you leave you will want to include Abril and Gustavo on your Christmas card list.
