Guadalajara International Airport has several airport lounges, but currently only two lounges are accessible to Priority Pass holders or via a day pass. There are VIP lounges located in both the east and west sides of the airport. The location of the lounges are convenient, so no matter which airline you’re flying, or from whatever gate, there is a lounge within a 5 minute walk to your gate. Both lounges have very similar floor plan and the same food and beverage offering.
The GDL VIP lounge is one large open room with a bar and cafe on one side and then an open floor plan with seats, a dinning area and even a rest point.
At the bar travelers can treat them self to a beer, wine, or a cocktail. There are bartenders ready to mix you up anything you desire. Alcohol selection is plenty, with both Mexican and international spirits available. All drinks are complimentary.
Next to the bar is a self-serve espresso machine and a buffet. The buffet offers a variety of fresh fruit, sandwiches, a salad bar and some warm options.
Those looking to nap, can attempt to relax or nap in one of their recliners. Note that the area is not closed off so the nosey lounge may make it difficult to sleep.
There is a small glass inclosed business area which is perfect if you need to have a meeting. There is also one computer that is available to use if you are not traveling with your own.
The open floor plan is great for those groups traveling together, but privacy is lacking throughout the lounge. Also the TV are all synched and do have audio.
For those traveling with kids, behind the bar there is a kid playroom with an Xbox. It is fully enclosed so your kids can be as loud as they want.
The Priority Pass lounge is a nice place to relax before a flight. It reminds me a lot of the Puerto Vallarta VIP lounge. The food offering is basic but provides an option for travelers. The drinks are plentiful and the staff are friendly. i would not arrive early to visit this lounge, but if in Guadalajara with time to kill, this lounge is for you.
