Overall the stay at this hotel was decent. The location is good, on a quiet side street close to 5th avenue and the beach. The hotel gave us an automatic upgrade to an apartment style room on the upper floor. There are free water coolers on the premises for the use of the guests, and breakfast was good, even if... More

Was a fantastic location right off the main walking street. The hotel was clean and comfortable with a great courtyard that had a nice sitting area and pool. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. I would recommend BRIC to anybody visiting Playa.

My wife and I stayed here for 7 nights while on our honeymoon in Playa del Carmen in June. It was fantastic. Some thoughts: - The property was small-ish, but very nice. Felt like an "oasis" away from the action of Quinta Avenida. The pool was small but fantastic, very refreshing. The property was laid out very well and looked... More

The Bric is a great hotel, that lets you consume the true culture of the area, due to its great location, just off 5th Avenue. Its location may concern people with noise but it is peaceful and quiet. The hotel itself is great, clean and comfortable. You also feel very safe. Each room also has a balcony with a hammock... More

I really enjoyed staying at the BRIC Hotel. The room was nice, the pool was beautiful, the staff were incredibly friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Should I travel back to Playa, I will absolutely stay at the BRIC Hotel.

Bric is a cozy hotel just a bit off the path of la avenida cinco. The pool was refreshing after a long day walking around. The staff was helpful and friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. More important, the AC and fan rocked! Thanks Bric for a wonderful stay.
