Reviewed 12 June 2014

We are very careful when booking hotels on international drive now after having a terrible time in the metropolitan resort the previous year.

We read all of the reviews for the Avanti resort and decided this is where we wanted to stay, we are very happy we chose the Avanti resort as we thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Check in was quick and the receptiontion area was refreshingly bright and clean, the rooms were large and clean with great aircon. The floors were not carpeted which made the room more contempary and up to date which also means you can avoid dirty smelly carpets.

Concierge were very friendly and helpful with the booking of our theme park tickets and transportation.
Pool are was huge and clean, with a nice little beach area where you could play volley ball, pool towels were supplies which is also a plus.

Free wifi we never had a problem with ours, we connected in all areas with no problems.

Cleaners were friendly and our room was cleaned everyday meaning everyday we returned from a tiring day to clean fresh rooms.
the refrigerator in the room was a nice size and allowed us to keep our drink and other bits.

The only gripe I have about this hotel and this is very minor and has no reflection on the great service and food provided by the staff at the cafe, in the evening it got very busy, there didn't seem to be enough staff to keep the flow of orders coming out quickly, we waited 40 minutes for a salad and pizza. But as I say the staff were very friendly and there customer service was impeccable and food was great.

All in all we had a great stay and would 100% stay again, if you want a clean upto date friendly hotel Avanti Resort is for you.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room you don't want a pool view as it is open until 11 and is quite busy i...

We came in for only one night, but enjoyed the pool area, with the cabana bar. Our room faced the pool area and we noted other guests had pulled chairs outside to enjoy the view. A Large convenience store was right off the pool that makes their own pizza! After feeding the kids, (teenagers) the walk over to Tony Romas was quick and peaceful. There were MANY other restaurants to walk to as well. Rainy night, so we ran to the closest. The room was spacious, but average. It was clean. Our room did back the highway, but it wasn't too distracting. The flooring gave the room a slight echo, but never heard anything from the neighboring rooms, so I'm sure they didn't hear us. Would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: Pick a pool view that doesn't back the highway.

Avanti International Resort is awesome!!! Rooms were clean and smelled great. Starbucks on site was great as well. The room floors don't have any carpet, so there's no worries of the nasty or smelly odors. I wasn't afraid of walking barefooted in the room. Only thing I would like to see from the resort are chairs or benches outside the rooms. Sitting outside by your room and enjoy overlooking the pool would be a SUPER ADDITION!!!

The location is awesome!!! Plenty of great dining, shopping and attractions for ALL ages. Disney, Universal, Sea World and the Holy Land are all within a few short miles from the resort. International Drive will take you anywhere you want to go in the area and bring you right back to the Avanti.

I will definitely stay at the Avanti again. I had no problems whatsoever!!! Thank you staff, you made our family vacation AMAZING!!!

We really appreciate the awesome review! We are pleased that you enjoyed the cleanliness as well as the floors in your room. These floors are actually more hygienic than traditional hotel carpet and are less likely to harbor allergens or microorganisms. We appreciate your suggestion in regards to placing additional seating outside of the rooms. We will be passing your comments along to our team. We are glad that you enjoyed our ideal location on International drive. You are absolutely right, there are several attractions for all ages within walking distance from our resort. We hope that you and your family had a fabulous time exploring all the great attractions nearby. We would like to thank you for your kind words to our team. It means a lot to us that our great guest service contributed to an amazing family vacation. We look forward to welcoming you for your next adventure to Orlando!

Besides the Orlando Eye, we can’t wait to visit the Sea Life Aquarium and the Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum too. We appreciate your nice review and we look forward to seeing you soon!

Staff very welcoming, in a proper, rather than over-the-top way. A nice big pool with features for little ones, and a bar adjacent for the no longer little, and sand-pit come volleyball court, and limited catering, all suggest a resort for families visiting the theme parks. Bedrooms very big but bathrooms very small (somebody move the wall, please!)

Great location for a first timer or a regular orlando holiday maker. The on site Starbucks is a great touch. Beds comfortable, air con brilliant. Staff very polite and happy to help. The poolside cafe/grill serves lovely affordable food also. The only slight issue was the cost of bottled water was half the price down the road.
