Avanti International Resort
Ranked #82 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2014

This hotel supplied all my needs in Orlando. I spent all days at the park and went to the hotel only to sleep so there were services and areas I didn't use. The beds were comfortable and the rooms adequate. Everything was cleaned and when I had a small problem with the security box it was fixed in minutes.

The shuttle service was very good. It got me to Universal in time for Early Park Admission and I arrived in Magic Kingdom and Epcot very early as well. However, if you want to see the fireworks at Magic Kingdom you won't make the 10:30 pm shuttle and you'll have to take a cab (about $30). The shuttles still save you a lot of money and make travel easier.

There's also a lot of things in walking distance like restaurants and markets.

Dato para hispanohablantes: Siempre me tocó alguien en el hotel que hablaba español.

My family stayed here from April 16-20. We got a great rate thru Sunwing. We arrived very early and check in was not until 4 pm. We were told that we would likely have to several hours until a room was ready. A manager (Jim Kennedy) noticed that we were Canadian, took a liking to us and got us a room in less than 5 minutes. It made our day. We were able to change in the room to go golfing. The pool was nice and the jacuzzi was nice and hot. The bartender and particularly the waitress whose names I cannot remember were really good and friendly. Great time.

I liked the pool area the best. The pool bar and the sand make it like a beach resort. Very good location. Close to everything. The room was clean but a little small. Beds squeaked loud when u moved off of them.

We do apologize that the bed in your guest room made some noise. We are currently able to minimize that noise and will send someone to the room that you were in to address it. Thank you for all of your feedback, we hope that you will consider staying with us again when you return to the Orlando area.

We actually found this resort through Groupon and hesitantly booked our Spring Break stay. We were absolutely delighted with this resort!!! Check-in was a breeze, staff was incredibly friendly, room was nice and clean. The pool area is awesome, with a gym, cafe, outdoor bar and video game room right there. We were very fortunate to have a pool view room on the bottom floor, so we were just steps away :) I highly recommend this resort and I would suggest asking for a pool view room. I "liked" this resort on Facebook and sent them a private message asking for a first floor room because I am afraid of heights. They wouldn't promise anything, but said they would do their best. We ended up getting one of the best locations possible. I will definitely stay here again and I will definitely tell all my friends and family to stay here as well.

Room Tip: Ask for pool view if possible, but definitely tell them you don't want a room on the Interstate...

I would strongly recommend this hotel. I travelled alone with my daughter and felt at ease at all times. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble at all. Great location on IDrive with excellent restaurants within walking distance. Wherever I went in Florida the staff were always helpful, friendly and very polite. I will certainly return to the Avanti
