Going through US Customs at Nassau International Airport can take a good deal of time and patience. The Bahamas are a popular place! You’ll be wanting to re-charge your electronics before stepping on the plane and for sure, you’ll want a drink. You might want to send an email or tweet out, because the WiFi in the airport is iffy. That’s why Greycliff Divans lounge in Nassau is such a great buy: a $10 drink purchase (or a $25 gift purchase) gets you into their relaxing lounge. Things are a little quieter there, relaxing. There’s an outdoor lounge for smokers — remember those?
The islands are known for rum — I had been to Nassau for the 1st annual Rum Bahamas Fest — and I hadn’t tried a Bahama Mama! Okay, it’s true, I ordered a pina colada at first . . . but they don’t do frozen drinks. The Bahama Mama has rum, coconut rum, grenadine syrup, orange juice and pineapple syrup.
The lounge has free WiFi and a ton of electrical outlets. The ambiance is rather like a cabana around a luxe Caribbean pool.
