Club Mobay--Info needed
Hi, this will be our first, but not last, trip to Jamaica. Can someone explain what Club Mobay, and the advantages of it, and is it worth it. Thanks!
We are thinking we it would really help for the arrival process (we get in on a Saturday around 3:30).

I had mentioned in another thread that it is a gamble of whether or not the arrival will work in your favor.
I had checked online and about 5 planes were arriving around the same time we were arriving, because we arrived early we were the first plane so there was no line ups at immigration. There was a small line up at customs but nothing like I have seen in the past.
The representatives are very friendly informative and courtious.
Did not visit MoBay Lounge as we were using TimAir to fly to Negril but did walk by it when I checked in at Couples and it looked nice
You bring yourself through each station but this is where it saved us time and made it worth our while. the lounge is very comfortable and clean. We went in the adults only section and really enjoyed ourselves.
Would I use it again even though it did not pay for the arrival.....yes if it were the same circumstances where I see 5 planes landing same time as myself, I would definitely take the gamble and purchase it again even if for the departing. And I am not a betting woman lol
My advise is check flightstat.com: The Leading Flights Site on the Net and if there are more than 4 planes arriving at the same time as you....then I would use it. You may get lucky like we did and arrive early but it is of no fault of Club MoBay and are we ever really going to complain because our plane lands early??? Lol
Hope you enjoy your vacation.

We used the Club MoBay arrival service for our first trip (also not our last) to Jamaica two weeks ago. We looked at flightstatus.com and it said there were seven flights arriving around the same time as ours on a Wednesday afternoon. A Club MoBay rep met us at the bottom of the ramp and escorted us through Customs and Immigration lines. Overall, I'm really glad we used it. In my opinion, I think the main advantage of it was the escort through an unfamiliar airport. I feel it really only ended up saving us 15 minutes overall. On a Wednesday afternoon the lines really weren't too long. I think if it's your first time it's worth it. I can imagine that Saturday afternoons are probably busier but check the website.
The departure lounge was nice as well. Snacks and drinks were provided and it offered one last relaxing moment before your flight home. They make announcements over the loudspeaker when it is time for your flight to board.
Good luck and enjoy!CN Feb 2013

We used Club MoBay for the first time two weeks ago. We landed at 3pm on a Monday got off the plane and headed down the ramp where we were met by the wonderful Lesma from Club MoBay. She checked our paperwork and escorted us to the immigration hall. This was our third time to Jamaica. The first time we breezed thru on our own, the second time took over an hour and the line was even longer this time. No problem Mon! Around the huge crowd we went straight to the VIP line then off to collect our bags and to the VIP customs line. I timed the process on my phone and from stepping off the plane to the Couples lounge was 15 min! Well worth every penny!
