Lydia's Guesthouse is on the Placencia village beach, the best beach in Belize. One can swim, snorkel, kayak, fish or just bounce around in the beautiful Caribbean sea.

The property has... More

The common kitchen is a definite bonus. Lydia will help you with any of your questions and her son provides an awesome snorkeling experience. Clint is... More

Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all basic but clean. Great location right on the sidewalk. Try to request a room at the back of the house to avoid the noise of the people on the balcony and the slamming screen door.

Mom and I stayed at Lydia's, for two weeks. Lydia runs a first class guesthouse! Her kitchen is fully stocked and the guest rooms are nice and clean. She really took care of us, during our stay, in Placencia, Belize. We will be back!

Wake up to hummingbirds and ocean crashing waves to a tropical paradise, this place holds that and more. Everything one needs is there at your disposal when asking. Quiet and serene atmosphere. Great place to rest your head.

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.
