*My husband and I received a complimentary Arrival & Departure package from Club Mobay in exchange for our honest review. All thoughts in this review are 100% our own.
My husband and I recently celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary in Montego Bay Jamaica. We spent our first honeymoon at Sandals Royal Caribbean, and we always said that we would go back for our 20th anniversary. Fast forward to May, where we made that dream come true.
We decided to start our vacation off right and use Club Mobay Arrival Lounge to begin our Jamaican vacation. In this post, I will be discussing all the benefits of using the Club Mobay arrival lounge, and why you shouldn’t start your vacation without it!
Okay, let me be completely honest, I am not the world’s most sophisticated international traveler. In fact, when we used this lounge, I had only been out of the U.S. for the second time. Unlike my husband, who has been in numerous countries for work.
I have never needed a passport before, never used a kiosk, and had no idea about the tightened security. Thankfully he walked me through every step. After a delay, we were finally on the plane and in the air.
Our pilot did an amazing job making up the lost time, we finally landed in Jamaica! I was so excited to get our vacation started. I have to tell you that there is nothing as exciting as seeing someone waiting for you with a sign as you come down the ramp.
Meet Julia! She was our escort for the arrival part of our Club Mobay package. She was very nice and very sweet. First thing she did was check our customs and immigrations form. After just one quick fix, we were on our way to the customs desk. While the line was fairly short for customs, it was still nice to get escorted to the front of the line. After just a few short moments, we were headed to baggage claim.
Julia helped us find our luggage, and then escorted us through immigrations. We had nothing to declare so we passed right through. Then we headed to the Sandals lounge to check-in. Julia checked us in, waited until our bags were tagged, then escorted us next door to the Club Mobay Arrival Lounge.
Experiencing the Club Mobay Arrival Lounge:
After giving us the envelope we needed for the departure lounge, she then turned over to the capable hands of the Arrival Lounge staff. And it was wonderful service from start to finish.
The first thing we received was a cup of rum punch. I was waiting for this from the moment we heard about the Club Mobay Arrival Lounge. And let me tell you, it absolutely did not disappoint and was so worth the wait! I have to admit ahead of time that it was my favorite drink during the trip.
After enjoying our first cup, one of the nice gentleman in the lounge(so sorry we didn’t catch his name), took our Tervis cups to fill them for the road. We were SO appreciative of it! In the meantime, we were very quickly served a second cup. Yay!
Once we enjoyed our first drink, we headed over to check out the complimentary foods that were available. There was a nice selection of finger foods and desserts. It was the perfect snack to hold us over until we reached the resort.
Having pastries laced with rum is definitely a great way to start your vacation! About 15 minutes later, our transportation was called and we were headed to the resort. In case you need to wait longer, there is a TV and comfortable seats in the lounge.
So this is why you need to start your vacation at the Club Mobay Arrival Lounge! It gives you the first taste of the hospitality that Jamaica is known for. It is also the perfect oasis until you hit your resort destination! Club Mobay is available in Montego Bay and in Kingston. Be sure to book early, as spots are limited.
