Međugorje is the great phenomenon and one of the most visited pilgrimage...
If you're planning your stay in Medjugorje, one of the most popular religious destinations in the world where the Blessed Virgin Mary chose to appear, there are several things to have in mind. There are a lot of accommodation options in Međugurje including hotels, motels and family guest houses. Choosing the right one can be challenging for the average tourist.
Međugorje is a small place and most important sites can be reached on foot, while there is an adequate taxi service available for all. However, according to TripAdvisor, most pilgrims and tourists say that the best way to experience this holy place is to be near the St. Jacobs church – the heart of Međugorje. That is the place where you can attend the Mass and spend time in Eucharistic Adoration, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation or just find a place for prayer and contemplation among the gardens of the area. One of the best Međugorje hotels, Hotel "Villa Regina" is located just 50 meters from the St. Jacobs church, which is directly visible from all of the rooms and studios.
Even though there are numerous hotels, motels and family accommodations in Međugorje, degrees of comfort they offer significantly vary. Not all of the rooms and apartments offered have full amenities that help you enjoy your Međugorje experience to the fullest.
Among the most important amenities to have in your room is the Air Conditioner. Summers in Herzegovina can be very hot, making the Air-con the absolute priority. Luckily, most of the accommodation options in Međugorje have air conditioning in rooms, while some, like Hotel "Villa Regina" has the entire hotel space air conditioned, including the lobby, the prayer parlor, restaurant and the wine bar.
Let's not forget about bathrooms. Spacious and well-equipped bathrooms are a very important part of your daily rest and recuperation. You should check the bathroom size and amenities before choosing your accommodation. Hotel "Villa Regina" stands out as an excellent example of the accommodation with very spacious and very well-equipped bathrooms. Besides the hair dryer and the daily cleaning service, depending on your room or studio choice, you can enjoy hydro-massage cabins and bathtubs, making your stay a real spa treat.
A safe to leave your valuables is definitely a perk, as well as the direct telephone line from the room – also something offered by the "Villa Regina" hotel.
Are you coming with a car, a van or even a bus? If so, when choosing your accommodation, you need to make sure you have somewhere to park. It can get tricky trying to find parking in Međugorje, especially during the peak season. As far as the urban space is concerned, Međugorje is a relatively small place. Even though a vast number of tourists comes with organized transport, there are still a lot of those who come with their own vehicle, sometimes occupying most of the parking spaces. That’s why hotels, motels and private accommodations in Međugorje that offer parking options on the premises are the smartest choice.
"Villa Regina" has the mini parking available next to the hotel, as well as the private autobus parking at the disposal for all of the guests. The best thing about it is the location, you can park right in the heart of Međugorje and don’t have to worry about your car during your stay.
A lot of persons with disabilities choose Međugorje as the place to pray to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Even though a lot of public places are very accessible to persons with disabilities, unfortunately, not all accommodation options follow that practice.
If you are, or traveling with a person with disabilities, you should make sure that your chosen hotel has everything required for your pleasant stay. One of the Međugorje hotels that has two rooms, fully equipped for persons with disabilities is hotel "Villa Regina".
If you spent a couple of days in Međugorje already and want to take the chance to explore some of the beautiful places, towns and cities nearby, it is useful to have someone take care of it in the hotel.
Beautiful historic towns, fortresses and UNESCO protected monuments in Split, Dubrovnik and Mostar are within the reach, as well as the amazing Kravice waterfalls.
Unfortunately, only a handful of accommodation options offers the complete service to fit your needs. If you want to explore the surroundings yourself, you might want a rent-a-car. If you would prefer to have a local guide, daytrips and excursions are a great idea.
One of the places that offers a full range of services to all guests is hotel "Villa Regina". Rent-a-car services, airport/hotel/harbor transfers, and trips and excursions to destinations you choose, like Mostar, Dubrovnik, Split, ext. are fully available. All you have to do is make a wish, and the kind staff in the hotel will do what it takes to make it happen.
Finally, let’s just mention internet. It is a must have for all accommodation options, but we didn’t include it in our list because, luckily, all or almost all of the accommodation options have free Wi-Fi.
