Traveling in Style – Club MoBay in Jamaica
By: Rebecca Jones
November 2, 2017
When you are visiting Jamaica, there are two airports – Kingston and Montego Bay. Most guests prefer Montego Bay, due to the ease of getting to several locations throughout the island from there.
On my recent vacation to Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, my husband and I arranged for Club MoBay service on both our arrival and our departure. It was so nice to have this benefit, for different reasons on each portion of our trip.
Upon arrival at Montego Bay, we were instructed to go through a much shorter line to access our luggage and start the customs process. After we claimed our luggage, we were greeted by Rushin, our Club MoBay escort. Instead of standing in the very long line to meet with customs representatives and have our passports checked, Rushin escorted us to a much shorter line, where we were given priority access to customs agents. I estimate this service saved us a minimum of 45 minutes in line.
After we got through customs, we were escorted to a lounge with complimentary beverages and food while we waited for our shuttle to Sandals. Club MoBay employees watched our luggage, while we relaxed, drank rum punch, and enjoyed some light snacks in comfort. They notified us when our shuttle was ready and we made our way to relaxation and the beach.
On our departure, we also secured access to Club MoBay. This time, it was a lounge that we went to after passing through security that we waited in, rather than in the general gate area. Again, there was food and drinks available, as well as newspapers, tvs, and a children’s play area.
This time, my husband had a local beer, and I enjoyed a daiquiri/pina colada mixture along with our sandwiches and salads. We were also able to grab bottled water and snacks to take with us on the plane. Departure information was announced throughout the lounge, and when the time came to board our airplane back to reality, we simply walked out of the lounge and our gate was right there.
When you stay at an all-inclusive resort in Jamaica, you expect to have high quality service. Why not have that service begin when you land, and add Club MoBay to your reservation? Ask your Wishes Family Travel agent for more information on this great benefit.
