I spent 2 weeks at Lydia's Place in Placencia in October 2014. The rooms are basic and fairly small but clean and bright - bed (some have 2), shelving unit, nightstand, ceiling and standing fan with some hooks on the wall. The windows all have screens and security bars (Lydia is big on security). The maintenance guy was always painting... More

I stayed for three nights in a private room. Lydia wasn't there but her daughter and grandchildren made me feel very welcome and helped me out in any way that was needed. The place is spotless. It also has a kitchen which is handy. I particularly the matching bed set! The bus entering Placencia can drop you near its entrance.... More

We stayed at Lydia's for five nights in June of 2014 in a private room (one double bed and two fans, in our case) with shared bathroom, for about $27.50 (US dollars) plus tax. Lydia's was an obvious choice in a town where accommodations can get quite a bit pricer, and fast. Rooms were very clean, bathrooms were very very... More

We were concerned after reading the review below, a terrible exerience (i think 2 reviews of the one experience is unfair though). We discoved that a few places had suffered similar break-in's around the same time (I wont name them but... More

My wife and I spent a delightful 4 nights May 19 through May 22 2014 at Lydia's Guest House. We stayed in the cabana behind the guest house. The rate was $50 per night, which we felt was very reasonable. Lydia was friendly and helpful. She went out of her way to make arrangements and gave good suggestions for activities... More

My wife and I stayed at Lydia's Guesthouse for one night during the last week of May 2014. We were attracted to Lydia's because it seemed to be a good value for our short one night stay following a 3 day boat trip from Caye Caulker to Palencia. Upon arriving, and being shown to Room #10 at the back of... More

Lydia's guesthouse is in a nice location, quiet and clean. Simple rooms that we thought were great value until we were robbed. Someone came into our room while we were sleeping and stole both our daypacks with all our valuables which we had packed and put on the bed next to us to have everything together for an early morning...

Private room for two, shared bathroom $55 BZD/night, 17th-20th April 2014 Vibe: Placencia is at heart a relaxed beach town, and Lydia's reflects this. Location: Set a couple of houses back from the ocean, and a 10 minutes walk from the centre of the town, the guesthouse is close enough to the bars and restaurants, whilst retaining the peaceful atmosphere...

Lydia's is a top choice for anyone wanting great value, low frills digs! My room in the guesthouse was clean and comfy with fresh towels, cosy beds, a ceiling and upright fan.
