Airlines Executive Lounge Barbados BGI airport Priority Pass lounge RenesPoints blog review (1)

BGI or Barbados airport is not all that huge but it does have space for a lounge that services anyone who has Priority Pass that you can get free from a number of cards (even for authorized users) like the non-Delta AMEX Platinum card.

The lounge is located at the far end of the concourse upstairs via stairs or elevator.

The desk folks were quite friendly and briefly described the club and features.

Just inside the lounge there are two public computers and a printer as well as a flight board.

There is also some additional work bench type seating for you to bring out your laptop.

The lounge is basically one large open room with the bathrooms located outside the main area but inside the lounge itself.

Decor is tropical and seats and space was reasonably comfortable with sofa seating on the other side of the wall you see pictured.

Most international lounges feature some upgraded food choices at least compared to US clubs. The choices here in BGI were less than impressive and rather meager (I did not test the non-refrigerated or chilled tuna sandwiches, sorry)! Although the staff was quite attentive clearing plates and glasses and eager to be helpful when asked.

Drinks and the bar area was self serve and seemed to be very popular.

Off to the side was a kids room and I really like that the space is both separated and isolated from the rest of the lounge.

Overall I was happy to see a lounge at all in BGI but as far as amenities go, this one I found lacking a just a bit. – René
