“Very nice”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

Very nice place was very clean and the staff was very helpful with any request or questions. The breakfast was basic but enough to keep you going till lunch. The grounds and pool were very well maintained i plan on staying again the next time I travel to Playa Del Carmen

I recently stayed at Bric Hotel in Playa del Carmen and I must say that I was pleased with the experience. I listed below the things I was please about the hotel.

1. Location, Location, Location. The hotel is right on where you want to stay. It's only three blocks from the beach and half black from La Quinta Avenida (or the 5th Avenue). The beaches in playa del carmen is one of the best beach you 'll ever see and La Quinta Avenida is where you'll find great restaurants, bars and shops and you're only a half block away from it. It's very convenient that you're only minutes aways from the beach and all the happenings.

2. The staff at Bric Hotel. The staffs are friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I was very pleased with the people there. I felt very welcome and relax with their hospitality. Also, the daily breakfast is great. No complains there.

3. The Bric Hotel. The hotel is kept clean, the outdoor patio is beautiful. It's not bad for the price you are paying for. I'll stay there again and again.


Thanks Bric Hotel Staff.

We just got back from spending 3 nights at The Bric. We had the most amazing time!! 3 nights was not long enough! The hotel is a 5minute walk to the beach and 1 block to 5th Avenue for shopping and eating. The rooms are small but equipped with everything you need and CLEAN! The ac worked, small fridge, in room safe and a king sized bed. The breakfast was made to order each morning (not sure if they do this all the time) but it was delish! Thanks Maria!!! Abril and Gus (not sure how to spell his name) both at the front desk were great!!! And gave us suggestions/directions to some of the best dinners in Playa at amazing prices. We cannot wait to go back!!

Room Tip: we had room 24...it was great! I would just ask Abril what room she recommends and she will put you...

We stayed at the Bric for 5 days and I was pleased with the overall experience. It is not very luxurious but thats expected for such low price. It works well if you're looking for a room to rest at the end of a very exciting day at Playa. Really impressed with the cleanliness of this place. The young lady doing the cleaning was very efficient at keeping our room neat and providing clean towels. It is a great hotel for restless, energetic people who really want to explore what playa has to offer instead of laying around in a resort

Playa is such a paradise and what made it pretty much a perfect trip was staying at The Bric Hotel! The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Such a great hotel, not the super big all inclusive that can be a bit overwhelming and where you don't receive the person service you are looking for when on vacation. Right off the main strip, but not in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, The Bric is just a block from one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been on. The Bric offers a great value and the quaint hotel i look for when traveling. I will stay there every time I go to Playa Del Carmen, Thank you Bric staff and management for a great vacation!

Room Tip: Room 19 is right next to the pool with a great view of the courtyard

The BRIC hotel proved to be a decent value for our one night in Playa del Carmen. The rooms were very basic, but clean. We booked a king sized bed, but were given a room with 2 full sized beds. It was annoying not to get what we reserved, but we kind of made a game out of it. ;)

Breakfast was nice, and I thought included. However, the girl at the front advised us as we were leaving that it was for an extra fee. The lady making breakfast was sweet and was working hard to provide a nice meal.

The guy at the front desk started out being kind of rude about our reservations. We booked through Priceline and he didn't seem thrilled about us being there. He fist said that Priceline hadn't sent him a confirmation email, so he couldn't give us a room. Then he said it had just come in, but that we couldn't have the king room we booked because it was reserved for another guest. Wasn't it also reserved for us? We were tired and had a fiasco with my husband's phone being lost/stolen and didn't feel like arguing. That's where the guy at the desk turned helpful. His attitude changed when he realized we had a problem and was helpful advice and letting use the desk phone as long as we needed to to get things straightened out. So, although e didn't get what we booked, the service ended on a positive note.

The stay was fine, but I probably wouldn't re-book here. The location was good, but there are are tons of tons of options in Playa del Carmen. Now that we've been there once, I would choose something swanky and romantic in the older portion of town of of 5th.

So much more than I hoped for. Super Clean, friendly and helpful staff and lovely garden and pool. Just steps from the best area of 5th st. shops, restaurants and cafe. The hotel said Continental Breakfast included but it was more than that, it was a full breakfast (ok food). Great value for the price.
The entire hotel was quiet but I loved my corner room. No one walking buy. Loved my terrace.
