Entry is through the Graycliff Boutique, with separate lounges for smokers and non. Graycliff, after all, is a cigar brand.
Waitstaff take orders for salads and hot sandwiches. I ordered a roast beef sandwich for $16 with a soft drink. I went out to the boutique and inspected the bar. First I alighted on soursop. Then my cheating eyes wandered to mangosteen, and around taking in all the beauties: coconut milk, mango, tamaring and the elusive sapodilla.
Each was $4 and change. I asked the cashier if I could swipe my Priority Pass for another $20 as I had started with Diners Club. Absolutely. She packed all the cans and I had a six pack for the road. With the tasty sandwich, my haul came to $38.
I learned that anyone spending $25 in the store can access the lounge, though not with a gratis $20 credit.
It was not easy to keep those cans unopened long enough to get them home to share with my wife. If she had learned I kept them to myself, it would have been a rough return.
Readers, what do you think of Graycliff’s system? $20 credit for real food and drinks instead of snack buffett. Those of you that have seen many of the (usually lame) Caribbean lounges, do you rank this the best?
