Comfortable bed, hot shower, fan keeps you cool at night. Clothesline for drying clothes, kitchen if you want to cook. Though a lot rooms and all usually filled, it was quiet at night. I enjoyed meeting people from other countries. Price was right. Would stay again, and probably will next February. Lydia called for taxi to airport.

We stayed at Lydia's Guesthouse for 2 nights in February. I have to say, the rate per room is very affordable for what you get. We had a decent room with a fan, comfy bed, hot showers, kitchenette for cooking, and the location being right by the beach is brilliant! If you're a budget backpacker looking for a play to...

We booked Lydia's originally for 3 nights and we loved Placencia so we asked if we could stay and she had no problem with that. So that was great. The house is right across a sidewalk to the beach, has great views. We stayed in the second house, upstairs. I think it had 5-6 bedroom and 2.5 bathrooms we never...

We had a good experience at Lydia's. I took my wife and 5 kids. Some of my kids are very young. I'd only recommend this place for kids if they are very well behaved, as you have frequent contact with other guests. We really enjoyed our stay and had a great time getting to know some of the other people...

Nice place, great location but not a friendly lady. She got mad at me for leaving for a few days although I had payed for the month, rude to my friends,mad I went with a cheaper snorkeling guide just to name a few. Next time I visit I will definitely stay somewhere different!

Lydia's place is steps to the best beach, great dining & fun tours. Lydia is extremely sweet & kind. She has any information you'll need while vacationing in Placencia. Her rooms are very clean & comfortable. Great WiFi. Am enjoying it here so much. Was only going to stay 2 days but going on 5th day.

The guesthouse itself is very nice. The location is peaceful and only seconds away from the beach, still it is close to bars, restaurants and shops. The room and the shared washrooms were clean and comfortable. We made our reservation via mailing Lydia. She neither sent a confirmation nor did she give us any information about the check-in times. When...

Stayed at Lydia's for four nights. Very clean, basic rooms. I slept comfortably. I also had the room that faced the ocean, so I had a steady breeze throughout the night and didn't really feel the need for a/c (there is no a/c but there are two fans). Wifi was pretty good. Good, central location. Lydia was super knowledgeable about...

Lydia's Guesthouse is a very lovely place to stay, especially for the price! The house is just steps away from the beach and you can hear the ocean from the porch. Also extremely close to the grocery store, coffee shop, and restaurants, but just far enough away to be very quiet and peaceful. Rooms and bathroom were very clean and...
