“Great stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Would most certainly stay here again. Room was clean, bed comfortable. Pool and hot tub were great. Grounds are kept beautifully. Food was surprisingly delicious. Bar is expensive but that's what you get at these places. Staff were friendly and helpful.

We stayed a week and found Avanti to be well run and clean. The pool area was new and well laid out. It was a pleasure to stay there. The location was ideal for all the theme parks, with loads of restaurants nearby. The shuttle 3 times a day was easy to take and the drivers helpful. The evening concierge gave excellent advice and reception staff followed up every query, we would definitely stay there again.

Overall, the hotel is very good. The room is clean, the floor is laminated, which is great for people with allergies, the King size bed was amazing and there is a mini fridge at the room. WiFI signal was strong throughout the entire resort and the internet speed was decent. The only reason I'm not giving it five stars is because of the shower, which is very poorly placed at a low height, forcing me do some workout just to take a shower (and I'm not a tall guy. I'm average). It really should have been placed higher. The other reason is the lack of electrical outlets in the room. I've only managed to find two wall outlets by the sink, near the hair dryer. And that's it. No electrical outlets near the bed, which today is almost a requirement so we can charge our cell phone, tablet and laptops while we are still using them in bed. Also, considering that it's Orlando, I believe most of the guests will have camera batteries charging overnight so we can take pictures the next day. Add that to the portable devices like laptops, tablets and smartphones and two electrical outlets is just not enough to charge them all. Other than that, the house keeping was great as well as the front desk. I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ice and vending machines are only available on 2nd and 4th floors.

I am the director of sales for an independent flag hotel with a simllar price point. Let me start my saying this is a hidden gem. The rooms, although modestly done, are well appointed, beautiful and immaculate! Rhandi, at the pool bar, mark at the bell stand, danny at checkout were all very helpful, service oriented and well trained to take care of their guests. I must say that the highlight of our room were the toiletries basket made out of towels as well as the towels made into hearts left on my pillow. You do not see those types of touches in affordable hotels. I took pictures and will share them with our staff. The temperature of the pool was perfect, there were plenty of towels and a café with plenty of choice for everyone's taste. Special thanks to Michaela for the welcome basket! I will look forward to coming back to Avanti whenever in Orlando!

When I first got to Avanti it looked great. There were two baristas, a cafe, bar pool and jacuzzi. The service was excellent. The cook DJ was amazing the food was very flavorful and presentation was flawless. The bartender Rhandi never kept us waiting and the rooms were clean neat and organized. I recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Orlando

We stayed in this resort because it was part of a universal studios package. Basically a really nice hotel. Doran greeted us and she was amazingly polite. The rooms are very clean and remodeled in 2012. Definatly would stay here again. Only issue is there is no welcome book/guide. They have hotel channels but they dont work. Shower curtain was ripped. No big deal though. Just for reference, the ice and vending machines are only on 2nd and 4th floor and they don't tell you when checking in.

I stayed on the top floor with an I-Drive view and it was very quiet, no noise coming from the street! The room was very comfortable with two queen beds. Rooms are fairly nice. Room was clean.The pool area is great too. The desk people were all very nice! Resort Fee is a total of $9.
