As so many have said, a cute property in a great location. It compares with the Aventura Mexicana and the Hacienda Paradise, which are both very close by. I think the location here is slightly better - closer to the newer part of Playa and beach access is direct down 28th.
The rate is fixed all year round, so in high season this hotel is also the best value of the three. (But perhaps the worst at other times). It is also the quietest, so if you are looking for something very peaceful, this is the place for you. Hacienda is much bigger and it has some rooms backing on 10th avenue which can be noisy. But the Bric is very small and all the rooms face the courtyard and unlike Aventuras, there is no bar in the hotel nor any music blaring to keep you awake. Come her for peace and quiet but not if you want to party with the other guests.
Breakfast is better than Aventuras, but not as good as Hacienda. There is not a lot of variety and they did run out of stuff if we didn't come early enough or weren't patient enough to wait for the one person looking after the buffet to replenish what we were waiting for. But what they had was good, including scrambled eggs and bacon and we always left the table satisfied.
The balcony was more spacious and private than at the Aventura and although the pool was smaller, we always had it to ourselves. We had no complaints and would not hesitate to come back.
