Upstairs (via elevator) from the main concourse is the lounge AeroMexico uses for its international business class passengers.
If you do not have Priority Pass access, from any number of high end travel cards like the non-Delta Amex Platinum personal and business cards, you will need to get a pass when you check-in with AeroMexico in Quito.
Do note Priority Pass states 3 hours maximum visit. I believe this restriction is waived for AeroMexico business class visitors.
Our visit (twice) was early in the morning and the space was wide open.
Seating was plentiful and comfortable with ample power outlets thoughout the lounge (standard US).
Due to our early AM visit I did not visit the bar but per the Priority Pass site it alerts you that: “Complimentary drinks are limited to beer only, spirits and/or wine are limited to two per adult with a valid boarding pass.”
I really liked the “feel” of this lounge compared to others with this large of a space. For example, the KLM clubs, while large and open, pack so many seats into a large open space that it feels like a cafeteria.
I like the work done to create a more private and comfortable space.
At the far end of the lounge is a sleeping or napping room. I love these in clubs but be sure to set an alert on your phone (I almost missed a flight once napping in a lounge). As to the “spa”, it was not open during our visit (either time).
The showers are simply in a room at the end of the public bathrooms. Maybe a bit strange to not have it separate but from a plumbing perspective maybe it is simpler (reaching a bit here).
I have not picked up a “real” newspaper in years other than the free one I get at home now and then and use it to light my fireplace (digital is better).
On to the food. You can request a number of sandwiches or…
There is also a buffet with mini sandwiches, salad as well as some hot choices.
I chose a light option, that is, scrambled eggs with ham and a pastry with some kind of shredded pork (I believe). Both were fine but not memorable.
Overall this is a pleasant lounge. Wifi speed was decent and the views of the mountains and runway (when the clouds went away) were a delight to see. The gates are only a minute or two away so no need to leave until close to boarding time.
Have you visited the Sala VIP lounge in Quito? – René
