We arrived at the hotel in evening of the 28th December for a 2 week stay! Check in was quick, easy and friendly service! Even had a golf cart to take us and our luggage to our building.
We stayed in April durning the renovations so was glad to see everything complete and a few extras in the room like a fridge and a coffee machine!
We ate breakfast in the cafe and really liked the omelettes!
Pool is heated which is great for an early morning swim.
Stuttle bus service to all the parks are convenient and free! Can also buy bus passes for the I-ride trolley in the lobby very helpful for us as we did not drive!
Location is fantastic for all everything you need!
Cannot fault anything about this hotel!
Thanks for a fabulous stay!
We will definitely stay again!

It was an OK stay, not bad at all, but still would give it just an average rating. Elevator in our bldg was broken at the time (Sat - service only avail next working day - Monday, we were told), so hauling luggages to the top, 4th floor, a bit challenging - but a little bit of exercise doesn't hurt anybody who's able bodied. Under 10 mins drive to Universal, that was great. Great selection of food at Publix grocery store 5-7 mins by car, fresh cut up fruit bowls for few dollars, great baked goods, deli sandwiches - and free coffee there (we did our breakfasts there, they have a small, sit down, cafe style area). If on budget - same place, we bought some frozen dinners and heated up in microwave at the hotel, everyone was happy...

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, and it is great to learn that you did enjoy the location and local grocery store. Please accept our apologies regarding the elevator. This occurred due to unforeseen circumstances and we worked diligently to get it back up and running as soon as possible. We are sorry that you felt the stay was just average, and are interested in learning more about that. We will be contacting you privately and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you for staying with us.

Myself and my 2 children stayed at the Avanti Resort from 24th Dec 2013 to the 8th January (15nights). The hotel is clean, the rooms are clean the staff are respectful. I liked it here and would definitely stay again. Considering we were staying so long i was apprehensive however there was no need to be as the check in was quick and the staff were extremely helpful. The pool and hot tub was amazing the children loved it. The sand by the pool as great added feature to the lovely and clean pool and hot tub. The only reason I give four stars as opposed to five was the lack of evening entertainment and children's activities, yes there is a games room but it is arcade games where as a children's club or hosted daily activities even if it incurred a fee would have given Avanti more of a resort feel to the place. As a resort children's activities and evening entertainment is essential. However the gym is new and all machines work. I would recommend this place to my friends.. Thumbs up...

Room Tip: Ask a room in block 1 as it away from the interstate. I felt extremely lucky as we were also away fr...

Crystal, it was a pleasure to serve you and your family during your time with us. We are thrilled to know that your children enjoyed our pool area so much. We apologize that we currently do not offer a children's club. During the summer time we often have weekend activities, but this is not something that we currently offer year-round. We appreciate your feedback and hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.

We spent a couple of days there at the beggining of january, when we left our older daughter for a month in public school of Ocoee. Although noisy, we've had a correct servisse at our quick stay. Staff is OK, specially Mark, the polite doorman that provides all infos we need in a correct and clear english.

Great location, right in the middle of all the action!! Nice pool area for a resonable price! The free wi/fi worked well and it's available in the rooms as well as at pool side!
We were in a room facing the pool and we never heard any traffic at any time.

We truly appreciate your great review. You are absolutely right about our location! International Drive has the best dining and entertainment in Orlando, much of it within walking distance of our resort. We're also glad to know that the WiFi worked so well for you. We hope that you will consider staying with us when you return to the Orlando area.

Recently, I traveled to Orlando with two of my students, so that we could attend a national conference. This property was ideal for our stay. The rooms were very clean and had a modern feel to them. And, the property was within walking distance, not only to the convention center, but to many different restaurant and entertainment establishments. One thing that I liked about the property was the design of the room, especially the hardwood style floors throughout. In addition, the outdoor recreation area was complete with a poolside bar, hot tub and a pool with a slide and water-park style play area. For added convenience, there was even a mini-mart style grocery store and a grill (restaurant).

William, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is excellent to know how clean your room was as well as how much you enjoyed the contemporary decor. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the flooring, which is much more hygienic than traditional carpet. Thank you for also describing the pool area. However, please note that we do not have a water slide. We do have a large pool, poolside bar, hot tub, and water play area. We hope that you will consider staying with us again if you find yourself traveling to the Orlando area!
