The Amex Centurion Lounge in the Mexico City Airport has been recently renovated and reopened. This lounge is accessible to those with an Amex Platinum or Amex Centurion credit card. There are Centurion lounges in both terminals, but this review is for Terminal 2.
The design of the renovated lounge reminds me of the Centurion lounges in the U.S. It’s pretty spacious with lots of different seating options. There are two floors to the lounge: upstairs, you’ll find the spa (and shower room), dining room, and tables; downstairs you’ll find a cafe/bar area, a small children’s area, and couches. There’s also a zen room tucked away (with a separate staircase from the rest of the upstairs). Centurion cardholders have access to a separate space.
Nothing is self service in this lounge, which means service can be slow(ish). There’s also potentially a language barrier (I am to blame for not speaking Spanish). But the hosts were generally attentive in offering drinks and food.
One thing that’s different about this lounge from Amex lounges in the US is that a lot of the food and drinks appeared to require payment. I was given a laminated card that said I was entitled to some food, but they have a more extensive paid menu of food options.
Overall, it’s probably the nicest lounge I visited in MEX in terms of sitting (although it did get quite crowded by the time I left), but I’m not a fan of the weird a la carte menu.
