“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We had a wonderful experience at the Avanti International Resort this week. I was a little concerned as the reviews on another site were all over the place, but I was very pleased with the room and the resort. As a few others have mentioned, the lighting in the room could use some improvement, and a door mat might be a good thing to keep sand out of the room. I really liked the laminetn
The beds were comfortable and clean and the large tv was great.

The pool area was amazing! We spent the entire day at Aquatica, so the kids were not in the mood to get in the water, but just sitting by the pool and spa was so relaxing. They did enjoy the sand volleyball court. The food at the cafe was great, fresh made, so we had to wait for it to cook, but it was well worth the wait. The cafe had a great assortment of things you might need and the staff their was very friendly. The game room had some great old school games, and the fitness room looked clean and full of great equipment.

We will be back the next time we head to International Drive for a family vacation and will recommend the Avanti to friends!

My family decided to take a staycation and keep local for the weekend. We chose Avanti Resort and were very pleased. It was very clean and everyone there was extremely friendly and helpful. A very special thank you to Nicole who brought my boys a special treat with chocolates and candy when she heard we were celebrating "kids day" for my boys!! That truly meant a lot to us..We will definitely stay again for the price, location and service we received.

Great job to the staff at Avanti International Resort. Located on International Drive. The room and property were very clean and the rate was reasonable. The pool, waterfall and jacuzzi was definitely a plus. There was a cafe and a game room on property as well. This resort was centrally located to several restaurants, the convention center and the mall. It is across the street from Hooters, Howl at the moon, and Senor Frogs. Everything you could want is within walking distance.

We really enjoyed our stay in the avanti hotel. The room and bathroom was spotless, cleaned daily, and beds were so comfortable.the staff were all so plesant, friendly and helpful especially Frances the concierge and mark the porter. It was in a terrific location. The pool area was very nice, a very large area. We would stay there again if we go back to Orlando. A great holiday. Go to tu tu tango to eat across the road...it's fabulous!

Room Tip: We did not have a problem with the noise of the traffic on the highway, but I'd imagine some roo...

We picked the hotel because it seemed much better then it's price. We were right. Staff was very friendly and never just walked by. The bare floors made sure that it was clean and didn't have to keep my socks on like the nasty hotel carpets. Kids loved the pool and splash pad. Seaworld was just down the road. Would stay again for sure.

OK so booked this despite the mixed reviews, Considering its cheap, its great value for money. I think some people are expecting 5* on a 2* budget.

The Good
- Good location on iDrive - was near some good restaurants and on the less touristy end of iDrive
- the pool was amazing, only used it a few times but was great, and towels provided
- the bed, comfy, massive, no issues
- rooms were quite - we were away from the I4.
- Easy quick check in, with good directions to the room

The Slightly bad
- The rooms are dark, only lamps next to the bed did mean the lounge area was a bit dark, not a major problem,
- Clenaing, they say they don't mop the floors during the stay, but do before you check in. Indeed floors were clean on check in, but after a 14 night stay, they were dirty, maybe the management need to review the proceeedure on this, maybe every 3/4 days?
- AC and De-humidifier are on the noisy side.

People have commented on no power outlets, we had loads, admittedly none near the phone, but a short walk to your phone on the other side of the room isn't a strain.

all in all, would fully recommend, would have given a 5 rating if they address the floor cleaning issues. you can't leave a floor for 13 days uncleaned.

Room Tip: cash machine in the foyer is very expensive.

My recent stay at the avanti was way better than expected. For the price, I expected to just check in a sleep able room and go to the beach. Avanti blew me away! The rooms were clean and decorated very nice not your standard hotel room. All the staff were so caring and welcoming. Danny and Melissa at the front were fantastic! They were friendly and so upbeat. They suggested a lot of great places to go. Evelyn at the coffee stand was such a sweet heart and always smiling. This was my first time at avanti and all though I was hesitantly at first I will definitely be back.
