The van should be pulled up to the front of the departure center 15 minutes prior to departure if possible. Passenger doors open, step stool placed in front of doors and rear luggage doors open.
Prior to departing it is important to engage the guests, ask them how they are doing thank them for their stay at Miraval. This the last chance to turnaround a unhappy guest before leaving the resort.
