Not a bad location. Pool area was good. Room, smelt bad, was damp and outdated. You only get room service if you stay more than 6 days. Floors dirty Don’t buy anything at the pool area, priced like premium steakhouse, serving prison food.

Hotel's Favourite
Really great stay at the Avanti International Resort. We particularly liked the large pool area that was kept immaculate and always plenty of sun loungers and pool towels. The staff in the cafe were friendly and we had several coffees and breakfasts by the pool. Our room was spacious and housekeeping came every day and made up the beds and re-stocked towels etc. we had a problem with the air conditioning on our first night and Hector came and fixed really quickly. Nothing was too much trouble or a problem. This is a great location for restaurants in the evening with easy walking to pointe Orlando and The Orlando Eye. All staff we met were friendly and helpful and a credit to the hotel. Thank you for a great stay and we will return.

Kristoria and Luis at the cafe were super friendly and helpful. They cooked our sandwiches perfectly and the wings were delicious. Everything was extremely clean and presentable. I would definitely recommend this resort again!

Having been back from hotel for over one week and numerous tries to contact by messenger and website online form we are still awaiting the full refund of our deposit of $100 per room. We had three rooms in total and for two have only received $52.75. Yet again we await a response from hotel.

Once a year my family and I drop everything we’re doing for a escape for a little fun in the sun,Miami Nights, watch the sun melt into the Gulf of Mexico, and of course Disney. I have traveled all over the world staying at some of the finest hotels. With that being said when it comes to hotel staff ,cleanliness, food, etc. I can pinpoint the good the bad and the ugly. When we come to Orlando to visit the theme parks and all the great shopping Avanti International Resort is where we go year in year out. I wish I could pick up this hotel and take it with me to every destination that I travel too. They make us feel like family and right at home from the second we arrive. The front desk no matter how busy I’ve seen them or how badly someone may be treating them their always so kind and pleasant, always making sure to accommodate our every want & need. The rooms are so clean you could eat off the floor, the lines are crisp, creased like they are freash out of the package. On international drive you’ll be lucky to find a blade of grass, but at Avanti they have 3 plus football fields in length of grass so I’m able to go out multiple times a day to throw the ball with the family Pup. There is tons of well lit parking lots surrounding every single building so your able to pull right up to your front door. The music by the pool is always great & even sometimes a live kid friendly DJ that interacts with the children even plying games with them. Most hotels I’ve been to their hot tubs Our mediocre at best and the biggest will sit 4-5 people at best at Avanti every time it is so relaxingly hot and very very spacious. Most hotel managers I’ve seen or had personal dealings with are so snooty and snotty acting turning their nose up and I feel better than you when speaking to you or acting like to helping you. Not at Avanti Erin the General Manager is such a sweetheart, and will stop whatever is she’s doing to personally accommodate your everyone in need to write any wrongs they may have been done you can tell she really cares about each and every person that stays here I don’t want to international resort. When it’s busy I’ve seen here checking people in at the front desk, if someone had a problem in their room I’ve seen her walk all the way across the property knock on the door and Address the issue at hand,I’ve seen her helping maintenance man before and eating moving pool chairs around. From A-Z Erin makes it happen at Avanti all while in a great mood huge smile and greeting everyone along the way. If your coming to Orlando look no further Avanti InTernational Resort is where you want to be. Hope this helps saving a few people from horrible hotel stay horror stories here in Orlando because there’s a lot out there. Safe Travels, ~Corey S.~

We stayed with you from the end of October to 12th Nov. We stayed at the furthest building from the lobby and were told we had to walk all around the outside of the building or cut through the pool (when open) as half of the hotel was a construction site. On our building there was painting and plastering happening and the lift was taped off as well. Spoke to another family who were in an already refurbished room but we were definitely in a old room NOT as advertised. The room itself wasn’t as advertised, and had an awful aquarium smell coming from the air con. I noticed outside all of the other rooms that their aircons were leaking too, and family next door constantly had their door open and air fresheners out for the disgusting smell. Have just come home to realise all our clothes stink of it and we had obviously gotten used to it and not realised, but smelling damp and gross all of our trip. Lots of scratches, dirty marks and rust around the room too. Definitely in need of some TLC but hopefully the refurb will take care of that. Just extremely disappointed to what we walked into vs what was advertised. Room service didn’t get round to our room every day, towels were missing and we were left with no toilet roll at one point. Came back in evenings to find trash bags piled up outside our door on many occasions and sometimes even blocking the front of our aircon which surely can’t help the problem! We were on the back block which had another car park which was a bit unnerving as it didn’t look to be checked on. Walked out of our room on the last day to find 6 police cars surrounding the building and tests being done on a package in a car right outside our door. No one had called or knocked on our door to alert us to anything going on and was very worrying. Food was very limited especially for me as someone who doesn’t eat meat or dairy, and was disappointing to see notices saying you couldn’t bring your own food and drink to the pool. Overbooked bus already packed and we were standing and then picked up at another hotel. No air con on the bus. Doesn’t drop at the parks selected so have to make our own way to parks and lose 2 hours of park time as a result. Driver doesn’t tell you where you are going or stopping so very confusing. And lastly, we got an estimate of the fees we would have to pay when we got to the hotel, but we were charged $100 more than this estimate plus the $100 deposit. Overall, extremely disappointed and disgusted by the hotel when we had been so excited by the look of it online. Wouldn’t stay here again or recommend anyone to stay here. Despite the refurb, it absolutely stinks, rubbish everywhere and didn’t feel safe.

I had a great check in in the evening, Christina was very helpful at the front desk. It was the night before the hurricane and thinks it gotten pretty stressful around Orlando. The lobby was clean and was already decorated for Christmas everything was bright and cheerful. There is a Starbucks café in the lounge. There is a large covered area to get out of the elements when parking the car to check in. The hotel as being renovated in the room I was in was 1 of the rooms that was renovated it was as nice as the moderate range Universal Studios hotels And the color schemes were similar all in beach colors. Very nice vinyl plank flooring in the rooms no musty carpet present anywhere in my room. Linens were clean bathroom is clean lighting was very nice in the room. I enjoyed by stay in the front desk was certainly the start of it all. My checkout was extremely smooth as well. Even though I was there on business it is a great family hotel. The pool is very large and free-form with many different areas to hang out. It look like people were really enjoying it even though I did not get to use it at the time Of my visit due to the hurricane. The gym looked well Equipped and similar to the Universal Studios resort hotels. The location on a drive is really good and is close to most of the restaurants that you would want to visit. This hotels in the heart of I drive rather than at one extreme and/or the other. I feel that it is at the best part of I drive if you want to enjoy the restaurants and festivities on I drive. Great Stay, David B

After reading some of these "excellent reviews" I'm certain we have just left a different hotel. We checked in and the girl on the desk was too busy having a chat with the other girl to notice we were waiting - admittedly, on checking out the other girl was great. We went to our room and it was more of a motel (putting it nicely). The towel rails were falling off the walls, as was the shower rail, the sink area had seen better days, the air con machine was outdated, loud and super sticky. One of the beds was unbearable, the other was OK. Honestly, once we had seen the state of disrepair the rooms were in (looking absolutely nothing like the renderings they advertise on virgin) we didn't even venture to any of the facilities. Bus transfers o Disney were awful, considering resort fees we pay for them and on one occasion the transfer back from Disney turned up but said he wasn't for our hotel, meaning we had to wait another hour (for the same guy to come back). Work is being done on the hotel, from extremely early hours, so maybe it'll look better in a few years... Great location though, only positive I'm afraid.
