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... More

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... More

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... More

Nice rooms, no A/C. good kitchen facility, in the heart of the village with good beach access. Lydia is related to Gordon of Sunnyside tours,, Our favorite, and Jay who runs a tour to Monkey River and who also lives there. As a budget hotel this fills the bill.

Her Guest house was very clean, every where was clean, she set rules in her place and all the other guest there follow it. I slept very good every night.

If you're the kind of person who just needs a bed to sleep on for a good price then this is it. The room is very basic, enough room for 2 beds, 2 dressers, and 2 fans. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and are very clean. I have noticed there is not hot water in the showers but you dont... More

Lydia's is a wonderful little guesthouse near the end of the beach walk in Placencia. Lydia and her staff were warm and welcoming, you really feel like you're part of a family along with the other guests. The rooms are basic, but perfect, the patio and balcony is a great spot to relax, the bathrooms are clean, the kitchen could... More

Lydia's is a simple place, but well done. Rooms are clean, convenient, and washrooms are not far down the hall. Very nice front porch to lounge on, people seem to be friendly. 5-minute walk to the beach. Very good value for $35 a night. You're at the north end of the sidewalk, but Placencia is small! Book early if you... More

Great little hostel just off the sidewalk and 10 minute walk to anything in town. Stayed here for two nights before our sailing trip and had a great experience. Rooms were basic but clean. Showers were hot. Sitting on the porch with hammocks was perfect and the beach was a 30 second walk away.
