Priority Pass Lounge of the Year? Guadalajara, Mexico

The Priority Pass Guadalajara Lounge Review is part of The Detour in Mexico Trip Report which covers the following places :

I left for the airport early because traffic in Guadalajara is a nightmare (see Guadalajara Travel Guide). I arrived promptly only to find out that my flight was delayed for hours. No worries, there was a Priority Pass Lounge that was Lounge of the Year in 2016.

It was a decent lounge, far better than the yuck one in Jakarta, but I don’t get why it won any awards.

The Food 

If you like junk food, you’ll appreciate this lounge. Doritos and chicken wings were available and refilled regularly. The wings were not worthy of a lounge food contest and the sides were not appetizing enough for me to retain my title of Fat Guy at the Lounge.

The Booze 

Lounges are made for drinking especially when you are delayed. I had a few Pacificos and the Cuervo 1800 which they hide in plain sight.

The Seats

There’s the typical seating area, and then there are four leather recliner chairs. That’s where I spent my time.

The Wi-Fi

How can this be the lounge of the year when the Wi-Fi doesn’t work! I do not understand why they hand out the Wi-Fi code if it doesn’t connect. I tried it on my phone and laptop. Nothing. I wondered what the rest of the people were doing.


I don’t know the criteria is that makes a lounge receive the accolade of Lounge of the Year. This one was decent, nothing great.
