The Avanti International Resort in Orlando, Florida, provides friendly accommodations for families and businesspeople alike. 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.

OK

I didn't like the surprise $8 per day resort charge or the lack of complete room refurbishing daily. Overall the value was adequate.

Great for an event at the convention center

Though a large property, this hotel has an modern, upscale vibe. Laminate floors in the rooms and modern furniture. Enjoyed my breakfast by the pool (very reasonable cafe and convenience store onsite). An easy drive to the convention center

An overall exceptional Hotel/resort setting

The Hotel was very nice for a remodel ..with modern contemporary setting and ambience in each room ..while the pool opened at 7am until 11pm to cool you during the day it also helped to keep the families kids occupied at night well lighted and very large ..As an extra there was a grill/snack bar as well as a full stocked adult bar complete with double large TV for that important game ...to burn off extra calories or to keep up with your minor excersise check out the mini fitness center ..also an extra bonus for the gamer a game room ..all located pool side ..once you leave the hotel grounds several locations of interest are within walkin distance ...and minutes from the major attractions ..I was very satisfied with my stay at this hotel as a single person ..A great family or single visit ..The staff and guest were very friendly which created comfortable stay ..

family vacation

The room was nice. Bed was a little hard. Staff was friendly. Pool was big. Feel that the kids play area was false advertised, it was jus a few sprinklers. Location was good though, right by seaworld and the other touristy things to do on I-drive. Overall nice but I think it's a little overpriced, my room was not a "resort" worthy room.

Great vacation

Out family of four stayed at the Avanti for vacation. Rooms were very spacious and well maintained. The pool area was very nice. Sand sun palm trees! Nice bar pool and deli. We will be staying here again for our next trip!

Great

It was a nice experience. The hotel was clean and pleasant to stay. The pool was great with a bar and grill right next to it. It was right on international drive with so many stuff around to do. I will stay there again, and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to waist so much money on hotel, but wants a decent and fun place to stay.

Eat before going to any Disney or universal park. Food is super expensive.

Really great time!

The pool and bar areas were really clean and very nice. Love the contemporary feel and a very comfy bed. Would like to see the bathrooms updated to match the rest of the room, though. Seems like an odd oversight. We'd definitely stay here again!
