    Default August 2018

    My wife and I just booked our first return trip to CSS for August 13-1, 2018 as an early Christmas present to ourselves! We haven't been since our 10 year anniversary in 2012, unfortunately, so I have a few questions:

    • Is there anything that's changed that we should be aware of?
    • Has anyone used the Club MoBay Departure Lounge? What should we expect there?
    • We know there is no tipping at the resort (we made sure to write down EVERY name of everyone who helped us on our last trip so that we could give them the credit they deserved during checkout!), but can anyone refresh me on about how much to tip for the airport transfer and such? I only ask because it will have been 6 years, and I want to make sure we take care of those who take care of us.


    I'm sure that other questions will come up, but in the meantime, we are very happy to be headed back to CSS!

    Hi..we made our first trip to CSS this past July. We did not use Mobay on arrival and we had NO issues. We did however arrive early and I think we were one of the first 3 or 4 flights to arrive that Saturday morning and there was not many passengers in the airport. We breezed right through customs and waited in the club waiting area for maybe 15-20 mins. before we were called to board the van.

    On our return trip we did opt to use Mobay based on what many of the friends we met at the resort suggested. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not that was a good deal. When we arrived at the airport, the guy took us in and showed us where to sign in and nothing worked, so we eventually had to stand in line like everyone else. It was very busy and this took forever!!!! Then we proceeded thru security which didn't really seem to help much either and even got searched for the longest time trying to find a very tiny size pair of scissors which my wife had in her carry on bag. I could not tell you HOW MANY times these have passed thru security over the years because they are approved and even had a protective cover over them. We asked what they were looking for so that we could help them find it but they wouldn't say anything. Needless to say, they finally found them and took them.

    So...we are finally finished there and proceed to Club Mobay. We were kindly greeted and let into the club. They had a variety of foods but nothing was what I would call outstanding but enough to satisfy our hunger for a light lunch. Also the bar was pretty sufficient and quick to get your drink order made. If you have a long wait time for your flight, it is a good area to have to wait in VS the airport terminal. We were in there maybe 40 mins tops. So again...I'm still on the fence as to whether to not we would purchase this again. Definitely would not use it on arrival if you have an early flight in.

    Tipping: As per the resort tipping policy and what we had read from most guest on here, we did not tip anyone on the resort except the ladies who gave us our massage. I don't recall seeing anyone giving tips either and we received great service the entire trip. We did tip the drivers $20 each for the transport to and from the airport.
