My family of four, including two toddlers, had a wonderful experience at the Bric. It's a lovely, simple hotel. The grounds are continually cleaned, the workers (Abril, Maria, Carlos, Gustavo, Elsie and Anna) are incredibly hardworking and friendly, and the location can't be beat! The Bric is so reasonably priced compared to other hotels in PDC and it comes with... More

I had a great stay at the Bric Hotel last month. Great location- just off Avenida 5, and on a much quieter section of Playa. Room and Bathroom were simple and very clean, and breakfast was nice. Very friendly staff, especially Abril at the front desk, who was incredibly helpful and gave great advice. Had a room tucked away in... More

It's a fairly simple hotel but has all you need and is in a great location just off 5th Ave and a few mins from the beach. Our room on the second floor was small but had good amenities included both AC and fan, mini fridge, tv, decent shower and balcony with chairs and a hammock. Decent wifi throughout and... More

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 located so close to the beach and all of the excitement in Playa! The staff was so helpful and helped us plan daily activities. I definitely would recommend the Bric to anyone looking for a nice relaxing hotel!

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.
