We LOVED the hotel grounds, staff (Abril at the front desk is a great) room, pillows, shower, pool & breakfast! To note: the noise level late night from nearby club was seriously frustrating and really affected our ability to sleep. Might not matter if you are out late but as we were vacationing with a child, it did matter to...

The BRIC Hotel and Spa is perfectly located close to the beach and main pedestrian street in Playa. The courtyard offers a relaxing oasis away from the crowds when needed. The staff are very helpful and the room we had was quite comfortable.

This hotel is great except for a couple of things. Most of all the water pressure. There is none. So if you like to take a shower, expect to have a drizzle. Also, the maid service is spotty. I even had one day completely missed. While they were going to do it at 5:30 that night...it was too late and...

The average rating was for the room/apartment which I will get to. The Bric gets the highest rating available. This is like 8th review of this management company and always outstanding. This year above and beyond due to a mistake on my part. I booked my room and thought I had booked my friends room who decided later to come...

The location is perfect. Close to everything.The staff was so nice and kind, they helped us a lot. The room was good and big enough... we took two nights at firts and then decided to stay two more !!! The breakfast was tasty but it's not a buffet and everyday they have different food (eggs/pancakes.......) We loved it

We stayed here for a couple of nights late January and I really wish we would have booked a longer stay. What a lovely property! The courtyard area with garden, pool, and eating area is very well maintained and so pretty. The rooms, while smaller in size, have absolutely everything you could need or want. They are lovely with a...

This is a charming little hotel. It almost feels family-run, which is a breath of fresh air in this corporate world. Rooms are small but efficient with the best shower we had in our month long travels through Central America. Always a plus to have a mini fridge and really appreciated the water coolers- most places hand out bottles of...

It's often difficult to find reviews that are relevant to your travel taste and habits. The BRIC is one of those hotels for people who love hotels for the price, value, service and local flare. I don't like all inclusive. I like quiet, very clean and comfortable. This is my third time staying at this hotel in Playa. I love...

By all means this is not a bad hotel. The location is superb, and it is quite cosy with delicious made to order breakfast each morning. However, there are the following problems: - mosquitos everywhere, probably because of the plants around the pool - tiny room - next to the bar street, so on weekends, banging noises past 2am -...

This was the second time I stayed at this hotel last year. I really like this hotel as it is located right next to Quinta Avenida, and within walking distance of many restaurants, clubs and stores. The rooms are simple yet nice. The bed is very comfortable and very big. There is also a mini-fridge which allowed me to have...
