We were given a free pass to use the lounge by our hotel in the Bahamas, One & Only Ocean Club, but you can also make reservations in advance online or, if there's room, roll on up and ask to pay for access.
You can get in for just $10, and if you pay $15 that bags you a soft drink or something alcoholic from the bottom shelf of the bar. If you shop at the boutique and spend $25 or over, you also get free access to the lounge.
We were only there for long enough to down a Coke, watch some ESPN and check our emailalthough we had to ask for the WiFi codebut it was a surprisingly pleasant way to pass 20 minutes. Better than sitting en masse at our gate, anyway.
We opted for the non-smoking lounge, but if you head to the smoking side, you also have access to the outdoor patiofor one last gasp of fresh, Bahamian air before you board. [Photos: Jaunted; exterior: Graycliff's Facebook]
