When flying to and from Jamaica, it is essential you add Club Mobay VIP Fast Tracking service to your package. When I sell Jamaica vacations to lucky clients, I always add this service, and I know it will make your Jamaica airport experience so much better! But what is Club Mobay and is Club Mobay in Jamaica worth it?
As a Jamaica Destination Specialist, I receive discount admission to Club Mobay. As always, all opinions are my own.
What is Club Mobay and is Club Mobay in Jamaica Worth It?
What is Club Mobay?
The name “Club Mobay” is a little misleading – its way more than just a club or lounge.
In a nutshell adding Club Mobay to your Jamaica vacation will add VIP airport fast tracking service upon arrival (and an arrival lounge experience) and a departure lounge for you to enjoy while waiting for your flight home. These services are available in both the Montego Bay and Kingston airports.
Club Mobay VIP Arrival Service and Lounge
On my recent trip to Jamaica, I added Club Mobay VIP Arrival and Departure service.
After exiting the plane, we were met by our personal Mobay rep. She was waiting for us, with a sign with our names.
She then took us through the fast track immigration line where we had our passports (and travel authorizations – since we were flying during the pandemic) stamped and then through customs with our luggage.
Once we exited the immigration area, our rep brought us to Club Mobay arrival lounge. If you are headed to a Sandals resort in Jamaica, there is a lounge for Sandals guests, but without Club Mobay you won’t be able to skip the immigration line.
Since we were doing a split stay and going to Breathless Montego Bay first, we did not have access to the Sandals lounge. Our stay at Sandals Royal Caribbean was our second resort stop. I was back in Jamaica in 2023, to visit the Hilton Rose Hall, and of course utilized Club Mobay!
In August 2023, I visited Beaches Negril with my son, and were able to take advantage of both the VIP fast tracking service AND the Sandals/Beaches arrival lounge after quickly clearing customs.
After clearing immigration, the arrival lounge is a great place to start your vacation and refresh from your flight.
As you roll up to the lounge, they will check your bags. The arrival lounge has bathrooms, and is a great place to change to shorts and flip flops! The lounge also has WIFI, a bar, and snacks. On our recent visit we arrived to rum punch, some sandwiches and fruit. We also had water to hydrate after our flight.

While we relaxed in the lounge, our Club Mobay rep checked that our transfer driver had arrived -and our driver had a preferred parking spot because we had Club Mobay.
The arrival lounge is small, but a good spot to wait for your ride and have a snack.
How Does Club Mobay Departure Work?
At the end of your fabulous Jamaica vacation, your airport transfer will bring you to the airport three hours early. After you check in, check your bags, and clear security, there really isn’t much to do. That’s why you want to add Club Mobay Departure Lounge to finish your vacation in style!
When you approach the security line, go in the queue for Club Mobay, Show your confirmation and they will give you a ticket for entry.
After you pass security, and go through the duty free shop, and head towards gate 12, where you will see the lounge.
Upon arrival, they will check your luggage and escort you to one of the many tables. Here you can order food and drinks. Definitely try the Jamaican patties – one last taste of the island before you head home!
The lounge also offers WIFI, a kids play area, a spa (you have to pay if you want any services) and showers. Perfect way to relax before your flight.
I should note that the departure lounge is part of the Priority Pass Network (one of my favorite gifts for families who love travel). But I have heard that sometimes they do NOT accept priority pass guests if they are at capacity with travelers who pre-booked.
Is Club Mobay in Jamaica Worth It?
I definitely think adding Club Mobay in Jamaica is worth it.
Jamaica is a hot tourist destination, accepting many flights a day from all over the world. Upon arrival there is a chance your plane would be the only one, but that’s probably not going to happen. Without VIP fast tracking, you WILL wait a while in line to clear immigration – not unheard of to wait up to three hours!
Plus, I HATE waiting at these small Caribbean airports for three hours at the end of my vacation. So having the departure lounge is a great way to end your trip.
How much does Club Mobay cost?
At the time of this writing, Club Mobay Arrival/Departure is only $80 an adult and $40 for children age 2-12. Infants under 2 are free. Well worth it!
