We decided mid January to go to PDC and found a condo that was reasonable for the season. Every thing was going well until it came to pay. They would only take PayPal and since I seldom use PayPal (and never will again) they put a hold on the transfer from my checking account. After a lot of hassle and only 2 days to go until our departure we gave up and found Bric. They had a nicer condo and a better location for just a little more money. They held the res for us for 48 hours and we actually confirmed between connecting flights on the way down there. Check in was a breeze. Isaac met us at the condo to make sure every thing was in order. We were provided a phone that we could call him at any time if we needed anything. The place was beautiful and located right on 5th ave and 34th ST. We had maid service every day. There was a Cuban club that had a band playing every night which kept our friend up at times, but we actually enjoyed going to sleep to it. The location was great, the service was wonderful, and we hated to leave.
Next time we'll call Bric first. They are a first class operation!

My wife and I have visited Mexico (Cancun & Riviera Maya) more than a dozen times, always at deluxe all-inclusive resorts. Our first experience with condominium rental was Bosque de los Aluxes 100-B100 which we found to be absolutely delightful- a well appointed 2 Bed, 3 Bath, 3 story on the northern part of 5th within walking distance of Mamitas Beach and Kool Beach. The location is ideal - close to the attractions but in a quieter part of 5th.
We rented through BRIC Vacation Rentals and the service was excellent from airport transfer to airport transfer including maid and water. Premises were spotless. One minor glitch was the Internet service which was not available at the condo during our stay.
It was just the 2 of us but this condo could easily accomodate an extended family for an extended visit. Read more

Best way to experience Playa
Left on 05/25/2009 for a stay in March 2008 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
We are frequent visitors to Playa del Carmen and have usually stayed at one of the many 5 star all inclusive resorts in or close to town.
This last trip we decided to try a different experience and we rented this condo through Bric vacation rentals. The experience was stellar.
The property is beautiful and well appointed. it is right on 5th avenue and only a few minutes walk to the 'busy' section of 5th avenue where all the restaurants and shops are. The benefit is that you are comfortably cocooned in a quiet and shady part of Play, yet only a few blocks from beaches or restaurants.
If you want to entertain the main living/dining area and Kitchen are perfectly set up for that. If you wish to alternate between dining out (which is so reasonable and the selections so varied in playa) or making some home cooked meals the Kitchen is modern and fully equipped. This means you can also plan great picnics if you want to adventure to beaches outside of town or do a day trip to Tulum or Cozumel. Renting a sexy condo unit like this really isnt more expensive than an all inclusive, as we discovered, alcohol and food being farily inexpensive to purchase. It gives you a lot more freedom and privacy however and allows you to really enjoy Playa del Carmen and use it as a launching point for Yucatan adventures. Rent a jeep and go local!
The Bric staff are outstanding. You are provided with pay as you go cell phone and emergency contact numbers. Someone is always available to assist you with information or suggestions. The attention to detail and customer service levels are excellent.
highly reccommend this unit and this way of experiencing Playa
