I opened up the door to access the lounge and was told to close the door in a rude manner. I asked if the lounge was closed because it looked like someone was painting in the corner and the receptionist interrupted me and said close the door. The whole interaction was 10 seconds of someone rudely telling me to leave.... More

I used this lounge for a domestic flight from Lima to Arequipa. The receptionist looked like she was bored to death and hated me for entering, but after showing my Lounge Club card I was in and explored. It didn't take long to explore: there is a main area with chairs and tables, and a staffed bar with a smaller... More

Although it provided a peaceful and comfortable environment to relax in before a flight, many aspects were decidedly average. The food selection was sparse-especially savoury, no self serve alcoholic beverages, located instead at a poorly staffed bar leading to a lengthy wait, they were however very friendly. The free wifi was efficient and it did not seem busy in contrast... More

We used the Lima Domestic Caral VIP lounge on a layover to Cusco. We were very dissapointed with the poor service and that there was no food just snacks such as crisps, nuts and chocolates. I tried the watermelon but it tasted awful like it had been rinsed with dirty water. We stayed for 3 hours and although there were... More

I think it all depends on what your expectations are. The place is fine for a short layover. The seating is comfortable, the snacks are adequate and the cappuccino maker is great! There is good WIFI but if you are expecting a meal, you have to go outside and eat. I think, having a card that gets you into all... More

I have spent several long evenings in this lounge and its competitor, Sumaq. Both serve the same food, have the same amenities and same chairs. Both are better than sitting at the gate. There is no real food here. It is nuts, chips and junk. This one is much larger than the competitor and that being said, it still beats... More

Not only are reception staff grumpy and extremely unhelpful, they charged me double which I only discovered when I got my credit card bill a week later. The place is crowded, food is average, and showers—if they let you use them, are cold. I visited this lounge several times this past year and each visit was worse than the last.... More

I spend a lot of time commuting through Lima on flights to/from the USA and unfortunately, the only lounge available in Lima's International Airport is this. Reception is rude, it's always filled over capacity, employees yell at you if you dare bring food into the computer room, and the selection of snacks is horrible. Bar service is OK depending on...

Don't waste your time this place is an over crowded over price lounge. My wife and I decided to pay for one day passes (4 hours), first off it was $60 for each of us and included a full bar, foods and unlimited wifi. We thought for a 4 hour lay over it was worth it to get out of... More

Happened to be spending 3 or was it 4 hrs at the domestic terminal of Lima Airport in Peru. Was heading to Juliaca. Normally, you are catching a flight to Cusco here - about 70 a day. But if you are like me and going to Juliaca, there's two of those a day. This little VIP lounge save me. Global... More
