Facing the O'Learys Sports Bar and Grill, The Sala VIP of Malaga's International Airport is located on the second floor just after check-in. Before choosing the best spot to spend your next of hours, you enter a wide hall filled with sofas of different colors, a welcoming counter on the right, and a couple of newspapers on the right. Grab one and walk in...
The place details:
  • A large well lit space over viewing the tarmac on one side and the duty free on the other
  • White reflective marble covering all this space making it look even bigger
  • Long sofas distributed in individual sections around round glass tables: beige, purple and orange fabrics chairs
  • Wooden blocks separating the saloons to create more privacy
  • A calm space with no TVs and no background music, but only the sound of the coffee machines brewing
  • A jewelry shop that was closed nested in the middle of this large space
  • Two beverages and food bars with three beverage fridges
  • Two conference tables
  • A TV room with individual chairs set up like a cinema hall
  • A couple of computers in the business area
The food:
  • A choice of two cereals
  • Chips and nuts
  • Jam and butter sachets
  • Cola Cow chocolate drink, Nescafé and a couple of tea choices
  • Two choices of yellow cheese
  • A cheap choice of fruits
  • A mix of 10 different alcohol bottles
  • Rioja red and white wines
  • A soft drink dispenser (this one I liked)
  • Bread and its toaster like they do in hotels breakfast areas
The only plus:
A vast and wide open space that's relaxing. You will surely enjoy a decent calm time before your trip.
The minuses:
  • Only one receptionist welcoming and answering the phone calls together. Her approach and work ethics are to the standard of a VIP lounge
  • No free internet!
  • Too much open space, no private corners
  • No spots with a dimmed lighting for those who need to nap
  • No music
  • Bad choice and variety of food
My verdict: It's not worth it at all. A simple saloon of chairs with no additional service. I would surely stay at one of the many cafes and bars at the airport's terminal - at least its more fun and pleasant.
