Final Thoughts on Malaga VIP Lounge
The price does seem expensive; however, having used the VIP lounges at Bristol Airport and Heathrow, in comparison, Malaga Airport VIP is a great lounge. Malaga VIP is huge and never feels too busy. There is always lots of food, the toilets are incredibly clean and the wifi has always worked. There are also lots of points to charge phones and laptops.
