"Good hotel; no real problems encountered"
I was more than satisfied with my three-day stay at the Bric Hotel. The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was comfortable and clean and the breakfasts were quite varied in what was available and generally very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Everthing is perfect y recommend it and i would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Hotel, Great Staff and Location!!"
We had a great stay, the hotel staff were very kind and attentive to our needs, would recommend friend and family stay at "The Bric Hotel".Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great room for the price!"
The hotel was very clean and everyone that worked there was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was pancakes, eggs, yogurt, toast and fruit. Some days they served French toast and bacon. Like the other reviews said, the room was very small, but we don't spend a lot of time in our room on vacation. The bed was extremely firm, but not bad to sleep […] on. Our room had a window that opened onto the street and if we opened the window we could hear a little street noise, but otherwise we couldn't hear anything. The air conditioner worked great. There was not an electrical outlet in the bathroom so I had to blow my hair dry in the bedroom, but that might have just been our room. I loved being so close to the beach and to 5th Ave. I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
If you're looking for simple accommodations in Playa del Carmen and don't care for a TV or hotel food, the Bric is great value for being on a side street away from the foot traffic on 5th Ave. each room has balcony space where I did my yoga asana practice. Then the hotel has a good sized pool to stay cool in. Plenty of restaurant & drink options seconds […] away on 5th Ave. Starbucks is on the corner. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location close to 5 ta avenue and the beach"
Everything was OK, there was not soap in the bathroom when we arrived, they corrected it the next dayGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great 3stars hotel"
For this category hotel it is a great deal. The Location is 10. Just few steps from Playa del Carmem 5th Avenue is a must. The AC works perfectly. The breakfast is simple but correct: some fruits, any style egg freshly made for you and a honest coffee. If you want more there is a Starbuck just in the corner. The shower is not a big hit. Lack pressure […] and is not hot. Considering you are at the beach during summer time, it's ok. Swimming pool area is nice and cozy and the free internet works. It's a good deal for the price.

"The perfect location"
I have tried many hotel in Playa and this was my first time at the Bric. The room I stayed in was fairly basic, but clean. 2 things were most important for me: Quiet and a good internet connection. On the first count, couldn't be happier. The hotel was quiet and though you could a hear a bitt of the horrible late night techno thud, with the air con […] on, I couldn't hear a thing. The WiFi was horrible. The main guest network was unusable for me, so they had me try the unsecured network that their accounting office uses near the back of the hotel. Also terrible, but better. The little pool was lovely and I give the staff big points for encouraging the geckos and other life around there to do their thing and eat mosquitos and make nice chirping sounds at night. The location is idea, giving you easy walking access to 5th ave both north and south (although I prefer the new parts of 5th from 28th north to Avenida CTM (46th). I found this to be a basic, friendly hotel in the middle of the hustle but feeling like a little oasis. If they improved the wireless internet, I would likely return. If wireless isn't important, I would recommend this hotel to others. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and helpful staff"
Wonderful first time in Mexico. The hotel staff helped me to get tickets to a show and helped when I was late for breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderfully friendly, cozy and immaculate"
I stayed here from 5/25/13 until 6/1/13. It was a great experience; the service far exceeds the star rating. I've never stayed anywhere that had a warmer, more welcoming feel to it. The Bric's staff are simply great, friendly people.The front desk people who helped me (Abril and Gustavo) were wonderful. They were extremely patient with my many questions […] and I grew to trust their advice completely.They never tried to sell me a tour (rare in Playa) but when I asked about things to do, they fully explained what was available with zero hype or pressure. The rooms are cozy and are kept extremely clean. The a/c works great which is crucial for those humid nights. It's apparent that the staff takes pride in every aspect of their hotel. Breakfast on 5th Ave will cost you at least $10 and be half as filling as the Bric's included one served in the beautifully landscaped courtyard. It consisted of coffee, two different kinds of juice, toast and jam, scrambled eggs with bacon, a fresh fruit cocktail and perfect fluffy pancakes served by the equally gracious Maria or Carlos. As an illustration of how far out of their way the staff goes, I'll mention an incident at breakfast one morning. I lost a contact and at one point or another every member of the staff was down on their hands and knees helping me look for it. We finally gave up. When I came back later, though, they had found the contact and were as excited about it as I was. This literally saved my vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The people who work there are great."
It's a courtyard style hotel with a pool in the middle. My room had its own patio. The staff is friendly and went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable. Avril at the front desk even translated an English document into Spanish for me.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good, small hotel"
Small hotel with a great location. Just off Quinta, but far enough to not have the noise. Good breakfast and very helpful staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outstanding quality and perfect location"
This hotel was exceptionally clean and landscaped beautifully. Perfect location as we were around the corner from 5th St. shopping and dining, and a few blocks from the beach. Small, quiet hotel hidden away from the main street noise. Tropical atmosphere with breakfast area under a thatched roof....the cook was a very delightful lady! Have stayed at […] expensive resorts in the Riviera Maya and prefer this hotel as it is much quieter and less walking! Desk attendants were awesome and answer all of your questions!

"Overall a good experience"
The location to town is great with access to all kinds of coffee shops, bars and restaurants. The beach is easily accessible as well - a 5 min walk. The people at The Bric are very happy to accommodate any needs you have and most speak very fluent English. Breakfast was included and yet very basic, served our needs just fine. The hotel area in itself […] is nice and quiet. The rooms are very basic, but the bed in our room was horrible. It was two twins put together and the bed(s) themselves were VERY hard and uncomfortable. Other than the bed, the hotel experience was good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Basic, clean hotel with excellent location"
This is my fifth time in Playa, I always stay in small hotel, in the north part of town. Have booked vacation packages with Expedia 4 times, never a problem. Basic hotel, no luxuries. Clean, excellent location for those wanting to visit Kool or Mamita's beach clubs. Half a block from 5ta Avenida, but noises do not reach hotel so it is very quite. Pool […] is not very large, but perfect for a soak back from the beach. Breakfast was included but I did not like it, so I went elsewhere (see below for recommendations) Staff is attentive and on top of everything. I was allowed to stay beyond the check out time (a couple of hours) since my room had not been booked after my stay. Too minuses: there was a problem with the hot water they resolved right away and another day the water pump did not work so there was no water, but again it was resolved very promptly. Tips: Restaurants: Chez Celine (breakfasts and lunch, french pastries, best croissants EVER!!!), La Vagabunda (breakfast, lunch, dinner), Sushi Tlan. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great cozy spot!"
We had a great stay at The Bric Hotel. The room was too small and dark but it didn't matter because we were out all day. The fan was noisy, so we couldn't use it. The pool area is really nice and clean. The breakfast was great, I loved the pancakes and fruit. The staff was very helpful. Gustavo was very nice, we really enjoyed taking to him.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Bric Hotel - PLaya del Carmen"
great location - a quiet oasis just off the busy 5th avenue - few blocks from the beautiful beach. Small rooms but clean and comfortable beds. Nice breakfast, good coffee . . . would stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nothing wrong, but not the greatest"
This is a great budget hotel for the price. That said, it still is a budget hotel and not any sort of luxury romantic getaway. The room we had was quite small- just enough room for a king size bed (ours was two twins pushed together despite my asking in the comments for an actual king size bed) and room to walk around it. The room opened up directly […] onto the pool deck. The bathroom, although clean, is strictly no-frills with a shower-only with plastic curtain, finished with utilitarian tile. The screen in the bathroom was loose, so we did also get quite a few mosquito bites. However, it did the job! The A/C works well and isn't noisy, the breakfast is really quite good, and the location is great- just half a block from Avenida 5. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent value for the money. I highly recommend this hotel and may very well return."
Very, very satisfied! Great breakfasts, and they weren't continental! :)Genuine Expedia guest review
Quality of the room was that of a budget motel, the delicous free breakfast and excellent location 3 blocks from the beach coupled with the wonderful personable staff and relaxed atmosphere made our stay excellent. Reception staff are very curtious and helpful with all your needs. The rooms are generally very clean. If you're looking for a budget hotel […] with excellent location and staff this is it! If you are looking for a sterile hotel with amenities like a holiday inn or such, keep looking.......I would definately stay here with my family again, felt like a home away from home!

"Peaceful Harmony in the middle of Playa Del Carmen"
Great little hotel near the action, but peaceful and quiet. Great friendly and talented staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a great little hotel! Great location - close to 5th Avenue and the beach, but far enough that we were not disturbed by the noise. Staff are friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Room was very clean, lots of hot water, comfortable bed, nice balcony...fridge and air conditioner also in good working condition. Nice pool although the water is […] a bit cool. Great continental breakfast. Definitely coming back to this one....the owners really care about their property and it shows in all aspects of their service. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The property is very attractive with a great location--very close to the beach with all amenities within a block or two, but still quiet within the hotel property. Highly recommend for any traveler.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Steps from the main shopping strip of Playa and all the great shops and restaurants. Rooms are simple and clean (no kitchenette but a fridge for you to keep some cold drinks). Very quiet and relaxing in the courtyard, on your patio and in your room. The woman at the front desk spoke excellent English and was very helpful. We loved the combination of […] Continental and cooked breakfast that was included; always fresh fruit and fresh squeezed juices and the cooks would make you eggs any style to perfection! We will definitely stay at The Bric again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

the hotel was immaculately clean & staff super friendly ..very safe and reasonably quiet..considering you are 1 street from 5th avenue..theres no room service but with everything so at hand you dont really need it..theres a fridge in the room andl tho some have shared balconies ..we ask for a curtain to be put up between us and our smoking neighbor […] and our request was immediately accommodated.. so we had total privacy..the pool is lovely and as we had to check out at lunch time and our flight wasnt till early hours of the morning, we were able to be around the hotel use the outside shower and relax ..we left our bags and went to the beach and had dinner then took a taxi from the hotel..

"All Around Good"
The Bric Hotel was all-around good. I really enjoyed that fact it was small, right downtown, and had no children staying there as far as I could tell. Nice and quiet for those who want to avoid the spring break crowd and enjoy the downtown rather than the resorts.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Boutique Hotel"
This hotel was very pretty, extremely well appointed just off the main 5th Avenida and gave us a good three night stay. For those who want a bar and restaurant, they didn't have either except breakfast which was usually finished by the time we emerged. This didn't really matter because the hotel is a stone's throw away from all the bars and restaurants. […] The pool was small but attractive and the loungers were very importable with a couple made for two! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Bric Hotel Playa del carmen"
The hotel is very nice, quiet and clean but there are a few things that are incorrect as to their services on your website... There is NO parking other then the street, there is NO phone (so the free local calls doesn't work!) and there is NO hairdryer either. None of these are major but the reason we picked this hotel was for the parking included... […] not impressed at check in! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Boutique style, quiet and comfortable"
We were looking for a smaller, boutique style hotel which is what we found with Bric. Comfortable bed and bathroom, although room a little on the small side, so I wouldn't stay here if you were planning to spend a bit of time in your room. Great location - in between 5th and 10th avenue very easy walk to all of the action, very quiet location (other […] hotels would have been very uncomfortable due to their proximity to loud bars). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Ive stayed in the Playa area at least twice a year for 10 years and for the past few years have found great values on Expedia and Hotwire. The Bric was great value in a limited service hotel. Nice room, great hot showers, above average breakfast, friendly service, rooms have balconies overlooking a courtyard with a small pool. All the restaurants, bars […] and shops are 30 seconds away on 5th Avenue. The best part of the Playa beach at the end of calle 28 is less than 5 minutes walk. There are many similar small hotels build around interior courtyards. The Bric has a little more upscale boutique feel with ipod holding alarm clocks and chocolate!!! scented soap.

"Comfortable room and nice personnel"
The Bric Hotel is a nice hotel really close to the fifth avenue. When we saw the location on the map before going there we thought it would be a bit too far north compared to a more central hotel we stayed in last time we visited Playa del Carmen, but it wasn't far away at all. It is close to shops, restaurants and the beach. The room is clean and nice […] and the bed was comfortable. I have nothing to complain about when it comes to the room. (The only detail was that the floor wasn't super clean the first day but it was better the other days. But I'm from Europe so I like to walk around barefoot without getting dirty feet, but since they use shoes indoors in Mexico I guess this is not a valid complain ;)) The pool area is small and cozy and the personnel is really nice and helpful. I liked that it was possible to borrow beach towels from the hotel. I can definitely recommend The Bric Hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"God beliggenhed og god standard."
Havde et dejligt ophold på The Bric Hotel. Hotellet er af fin standard med rummelige værelser. Badeværelset er fint og der blev skiftet håndkælder hver dag. De stillede endvidere strandhåndklæder til rådighed. Der er en hyggelig altan til alle værelser. WiFi signalet fungerede fint. Hvis man ønsker et hotel med et godt pool område ville jeg ikke vælge […] dette hotel. Pool området er lille og hyggeligt, men der er skygge store dele af tiden og kun ganske få solstråle. Hotellet har en super beliggenhed tæt på butikker, restauranter og strand! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Demasiado pequeño, no vale lo que cuesta"
El personal fue muy amable pero no me volvería a quedar en este hotel, es demasiado pequeño (en serio no creo que la habitación fuera de más de 20m2 y éramos 3 personas). La ubicación está bien pero he estado en Playa muchas veces y creo que hay mejores hoteles por el precio que pagamos.Genuine Expedia guest review
