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.
