Nice property, pool, front desk people, rooms, BUT: Room service extemely poor, really do not clean rooms, dust on everything, do not replace soap, or wash rags, have to ask. ? Found and killed roach running along floor, with all this I kept leaving tips. ? Also was there for 2 weeks, after complaining service did not improve. .?

Stayed in the Avanti resort from the 22nd to the 29th of April 2015. The resort is located on I drive and hence short transfer time from the airport. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.The rooms were large and cleaned every day. The pool and bar area was lively and always clean. Shuttle service to the parks was free and always on time. Wifi was excellent. Lots and restaurants and bars around the hotel.

For the sake of a a balanced review two small things I found wrong were the Resort fee (I thought it was included in the price) it was only 5 dollars a day per room so not too bad. We also had to change our keys to the room a few times as they stopped working.

These are only small things in fairness. Overall lovely resort with great staff. Would definitely stay again and I highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Book your tickets for the shuttle the night before because it can fill up fast. Try Tony Romas ne...

I know this review is quiet late but we travelled to this hotel in november 2014 for a period of 14 nights arrived first night and check in was quick and painless given a map to find our room which was a bit confusing but we found it none the less we had booked a kingsize room with a sofa instead of jacuzzi and the room did not disappoint. large kingsize bed very comfortable and kitchenette and large corner sofa large bathroom and rotating wall mounted tv so u could watch in both bed and on the sofa.
After a good nights sleep we looked around pool area which was fantastically kept and pool bar also there is a shop and pool restaurant and gym
The pool had numerous loungers tables and chairs and free pool towels life guard and also hot tub/jacuzzi we had breakfast in the restaurant which was great and like $6 per person for sausage eggs toast fruit and then separate charge for a drink we ate here most mornings as it was handy and was what we wanted as the breakfast buffets around the hotel are way too much for us. The restaurant also sells pizza burgers chips etc all day into the evening and is handy but can be overpriced in comparison to out on i drive
The shop is well stocked crisps drinks (no alcohol) suncream toiletries etc but is very overpriced and next to the hotel outside to the left next to tony romas there is a pharmacy which will sell you anything you need for alot cheaper also any merchandise is cheaper in the shops so are pool floats etc
Pool bar is quite expensive in price in comparison to i drive and people drank from it from handyness sake when in actual fact there is an offsales/off license straight facing the hotel it was cheap it was not even funny and once a week they have a drink promo evening with tasting of various drinks, we used this to have drink in our fridge and also to have a drink by the pool this is fine as long as you clean up after urself and also are not drunk rowdy and do not sit next to the bar, we always sat at the back having a quiet drink by the pool as adults
The hotel offers a shuttle service to all park which is fantastic and you can get a timetable from reception and you book it the night before for the next day and you get a ticket to board. Bus always on time with a very nice accomodating driver especially the disney bus driver.
Majority of other hotels charge for shuttles and do not operate them to disney which is soooo expensive by taxi.
You can also use the reception building for a coffee as it has a coffee bar, they will organise trips tickets and airport transfers they also have comfy seating and you can use the internet and check in for your flight and print off boarding passes
the staff were so nice and so accomodating in every area i could not have faulted them in anyway whatsoever.
The surrounding area is fantastic we have been twice before and always stayed further up/down i drive near wet and wild but this area near wonderworks etc has been revamped with alot of new bars restaurants and attractions
few of my recommendations for food is deffo millers ale house a million times over come out of the hotel turn right and walk up towards the mall food drink and atmosphere was amazing
bahama breeze outside hotel was gorgeous don pablos fab, tony romas fab and also the brick house down to the left and also twin peaks amazing food
the english pub at the mall also very good
straight facing the hotel is also howl at the moon duelling piano bar fab nite out for adults check out online and also senor frogs amazing nite out food and drinks and party time
overall amazing trip and i have not even touched on the parks hopes this helps

Room Tip: pool side hotel room are fab

Stayed 3 nights. The rooms were clean and roomy. basic amenities. The only issue is noise we had people next to us but they were not noisy if they had been it would be an issue. Also they pressure wash the pool deck every morning starting about 8am or earlier!!! we were ion the 4th floor and it was loud would not want to be on the first floor. Also the u shape of the hotel with the pool in the middle makes for a amphitheater effect with the noise.

Room Tip: Top floor not facing pool area.

We stayed in the Avanti resort for two nights in April, the room was big and we used the other bed for putting our bags on. The bathroom was clean and tidy.

The room had air conditioning which I hate as they do be noisy.

The bed was comfy. This is more a family resort and the swimming pool is surrounded by a fence to stop kids from running away.
The resort has a shop/diner where you can get breakfast. The staff were nice and friendly.

The only problem I had was that our room (which was on the ground floor) overlooked the car park, which was beside a VERY noisy / busy highway and I just heard cars & trucks all night.

Room Tip: Ask for a room NOT beside the main road.

I got a queen superior room on Priceline, with no bidding or express deals for $66.00, on a Sat night (including resort fee and taxes). For that much I wasn't expecting to much, but we had a really nice stay there. The room was pretty typical (nice floors though) but it had a great pool, nice pool bar, and live music by the pool. I could do some minor gripes, but for the price I paid, I don't feel I have the right. I did hear a lot of random noises at night that woke me up but I can live with that. My 5 year old daughter used the pool for hours and never got bored, so I can say kids will like this place as well. They had live music on a Saturday afternoon, but she was literally standing in the pool bar, so I had to yell over her to order my drink which was kind of annoying yet amusing at the same time. You may want to make sure you book a room not facing I-4, I would imagine that must be pretty loud but we could not hear it at all in building 3. I may be wrong about this, we were on the first floor so I did not need one, but I never noticed any elevators any where which may be an issue for someone on floor 4. This hotel also has an excellent location in walking distance to many attractions and restaurants including the new Orlando Eye, wax museum, aquarium, and i-360 plaza. I really liked Bahama Breeze near by for diner even though their was a 45 minute wait. So if you are on a budget looking to stay somewhere in the "Universal" area look no further.

Room Tip: You may not want to face I-4
