Indulge in the Sunshine State's playful side at the swimming pool - adults can swim laps in one section of the oversized pool, while the kids splash around in waterfalls and fountains near the beach-entry area. Boost your energy levels with a bite at the poolside cafe, where burgers, pizza, salads and wraps are served, then join a game of beach volleyball in the hotel's sandy beach zone.

Orlando Family Fun

Hotel staff are excellent all of our needs where dealt with promptly and fairly. we had an issues with housecleaning not leaving supplies on four occasions ( coffee, disposable cups toilet paper, and amenities) We received a gift basket in return for or difficulties but not having toilet paper in the middle of the night just does not cut it. overall good experience however the resort fees have risen to $9 per night not the $8 we were informed of at time of booking.

Awesome hotel for vacations to Orlando

The rooms were very well maintained. The staff was very friendly and helpful with any questions we had. They offer shuttle services to the parks. That was the only downside to the trip. The shuttle services took 45 minutes to arrive at Universal Studios when our cab ride back was only 10 minutes tops. Aside from that, the pool area is very spacious with a nice outside bar, sand area with a volleyball net and a large pool. The experience was amazing and we will definitely be staying there again!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Avanti Resort is close to so many different attractions like miniature golf, Magic Midway and so many other attractions that I wouldn't be able to list them all!

Family Friendly, great value!

I must say I was a little nervous when we pulled up because the exterior did not look very nice and they were outside entry rooms, which reminded me of a Super 8. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see the inside, very modern and clean, the staff was super friendly and the pool area was great. I would stay here again when we come back to Orlando. Great location on International Drive, within walking distance to several restaurants and stores.

Good value stay

I was at this hotel for a short time for a three day stay. The staff was friendly, pool was large and very nice. The pool bar was a good time and the food was above average. The bar staff was friendly and accommodating. The street it was located was extremely busy, but had every choice of restaurant imaginable within walking distance to the resort. The negatives were the walls were paper thin, gentleman staying next to me actually kept me awake from his snoring. The air conditioners in the room were so loud as well and unfortunately when they stopped in the middle of the night i heard the gentleman next door snoring ! The hotel, however, was good value for the money and in a good location to Disney. Lots of families who appeared to be having fun and enjoying themselves. Overall glad i booked.

Highly recommend it

Besides the lighting in the room being a little dim, everything was perfect. Large clean room, poolside bar, freindly staff. Excellent location close to everything. For the price, you cannot beat it. Will definitely return.
