This is my first time staying at the BRIC and my husband's second. He stayed here 6 years ago when it was the Parisma Caribe and remembers the owners cooking breakfast and manning fhe front desk! We were both very, very happy with our stay and I can echo many of the comments posted already. Patti truly does make the best pancakes and is very patient if you are practicing your Mexican Spanish. We were unfortunate to have room 25 (balcony over busy Calle 28) but did not have to share the inside balcony with anyone so still had some great times sitting outside. I would recommend room 25 if you wanted a little more space - it seemed to be slightly larger than any of the others. All of the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly - even the poor overnight security who kindy said "buenas dias" every morning at 6:30am just before the end of his shift. Quiet, clean and simple - that's exactly what we were looking for. The free Internet is a really nice touch but wasn't availabe all of the time (faulty keyboard). Also, be sure to bring your own hair dryer and don't worry about beach towels - this great place provides them. Highly recommended and will definitely go back.

Wrote review last year that said fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. the BRIC was again all that and even better. the value, the personnel, the convience, location are perfect. i have been going to mexico for close to 30 years and this is really a most wonderful place to stay. Abril, check in and front desk always always smiling, happy and most important of all helps with anything you need or want. the rest of front staff are just as nice and always checking that all is well. patti, still makes pancakes that float and her breakfasts can keep you going all day. quiet at night and secure. 1/2 block to 5th ave and 2 to the beach (5 min). if you are going to playa - this is the place you want stay at if you can get a room. check out there site. pictures are very very accurate. only 14 rooms in this boutique hotel but if you get one it will make your vacation. can contact me if desired at


What an amazing surprise! We stayed at the Bric hotel for a week and have enjoyed every minute of it. The grounds are well maintained and the whole area looks like an oasis. Our room is clean and the balcony is a nice area to sit out, enjoy the breeze and have glass of wine in the afternoon. The staff was very attentive and accommodating and always made you feel welcomed. The hotel is ideally located within a few minutes walk to 5th avenue and close to all the fantastic restaurants. Mamitas beach is just a short walk away. It‘s a great hotel, good value and we will most definitely stay here again when we go back to Playa del Carmen.

This is my 2nd stay at The Bric and it has not lost it's charm! The rooms were very clean and well maintained just like the beautiful courtyard. The staff just as helpful and caring. I was very ill one day and the cleaning lady was wonderful to me. Abril was her usual cheerful self with that welcoming smile and accommodating way. I enjoy being a short distance from 5th avenue and still being able to enjoy some quiet at night. Thank you for a wonderful stay .... I will return!!!

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area very close to 5th Avenue and the beach. Rooms are clean and simply decorated, good shower pressure and hot water, beautiful pool area (although pool looked like it needed cleaning from plant droppings.) We particularly liked the terrace. Breakfast was good, but like previous reviewers have said go early because items did not seem to be replenished. The staff are friendly and accommodating. If you need a wake up call they will knock on your door as there are no phones in the rooms. This is a great value and we would definitely stay again.
