Lydia's Guesthouse is the best! Welcoming, clean, top-notch hospitality. Loved hanging out in the hammock overlooking the ocean. Lydia is a truly caring host, immediately felt at home. Very much look forward to visit again.

As a first time solo Central American traveler I couldn't be more happy with the accommodations and location of the first place I stayed, here at Lydia's. Lydia was friendly, warm, helpful and had the patience to answer a multitude of questions. My room was comfortable and clean as were the shared baths. I stayed on the second floor and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights on a one month trip through central America. Lydia is lovely, very helpful and takes real care of the accommodation. Basic room with a shared bathroom but really really clean, one of the best we had on our travels. Comfortable bed and a lovely deck upstairs with hammocks for relaxing which overlook the boardwalk...

Awesome place to stay. Great value, very clean, comfy beds, WiFi, straight off the beach and boardwalk. The best beach bars were about a minute's walk away too which was pretty handy. Lydia is an absolute sweetheart too. Five stars would definitely recommend.

We went twice to Placencia and stayed both times at Lydia's place. We liked the place, very close to the beach, supermarket 3min away, 15min walk to the port. The rooms were clean, probably the cleanest shared bathroom I've ever seen, very nice shared shower, but the room itself was very small and almost no furniture to store anything. It... More

We had a clean, private room which was fan cooled. Good location with a shared, clean kitchen and really nice bathrooms. Beds were comfy and room was quiet. Lydia was friendly and informative about Placencia

Lydia is a very nice woman who cares about her guests experiences. The guesthouse is very clean with private rooms and shared bathrooms. The outdoor decks are a great place to sit and read our nap in a hammock. The kitchen was well appointed and there were many nice common areas to eat and meet people. This is the best... More

Just one property from the beach. Clean, with a porch including hammocks and chairs., kitchen you can share and laundry facilities. Lydia has owned the place for 34 years. There was a hurricane there in 2001 and pretty much the whole town has rebuilt since then. She doesn't allow any non paying guests on the property for safety sake, and... More

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
