Lydia's Guest House


Hotel Description
Lydia's Guest House is owned and operated locally by Lydia Villanueva who believes in giving her guests good value for their money. Lydia's is situated in the uncrowded, north residential area of Placencia Village. The Guest House is a two-story, eight-room house with shared bathrooms. Rooms are nicely furnished and extremely clean. There is a large, furnished kitchen complete with microwave, stove and refrigerator for guest use. The house has an unobstructed sea view and breeze from the Caribbean.

History & Owners
Lydia's was started in 1990 by Mr. Villenueva who named the accommodation after his wife Lydia. He was a local fisherman and saw the need for a small guesthouse. Lydia is a delight--full of hospitality and hard work. She is always seeking to improve her property and is a participant on the "Environmental Walk-Through Program" to make her accommodation more environmentally friendly. She has been involved in tourism in the village and served on the local village council. Her laughter is contagious and she is a prime example of genuine Belizean hospitality.

Location & Directions
Beachside of Main Road, North end, Placencia Village
The Guest House is located on the north end of the village. If you're coming from the BTIA office, Lydia's is almost the last stop on the sidewalk but still just a 10-minute walk. If you are coming by bus, ask to be let off by the sign on the road which will save you the walking. If you're coming by car, Lydia's is one of the first accommodations you will see as you enter the village.
