The pool area has a nice chill environment, music is playing, family oriented with a view of the volcano. There’s a lot of surrounding restaurants to walk or a quick drive. Thank you Avanti Palms!

Advised front desk and they moved us immediately but this is ridiculous. We are in a sensitive time right now and this property does not take things seriously. Oh and if ur in the towers be prepared to wait in long lines while waiting for the one elevator to take u 14 floors!! 2nd time here, wanted to give them another chance but never again. I advise to stay clear of this property Read less

POSITIVE- Room was updated - looked very nice Water pressure was good / plentiful hot water Citrus soap was nice Pool area looked inviting (but didn’t get to swim - too short of a trip) NEGATIVE- WiFi speed was beyond horrible! 9Mbps download speed (that’s a snails pace - my home WiFi is 350’ish on a bad day and I have basic service). A lot of web pages wouldn’t even load. I also ran speed tests in the lobby and got the same terrible results there. Complained to the Manager of Guest Relations at the Front Desk. She acknowledged the long-running problem throughout the entire hotel (but apparently not in “The Towers” building. THE WIFI SITUATION WAS SO AWFUL THAT OFTEN WAS FORCED TO SWITCH TO MY OWN CELLULAR SERVICE (and pages worked fine and loaded instantly). Avoid rooms in building #6 under any circumstances! They are literally right next to I4 where thousands of cars and trucks travel per hour and you hear every single one of them - and it is relentless day and night (including car and truck horns, muffler problems, and vehicles that make you think they are part of the Indy 500). I pulled back the top bed sheet and, plain as day, there was a long black hair on the bed. Gross! Breakfast is in a Cafe area and the offerings were uninspiring and expensive. But the most irritating thing is that of the three TV menu boards, only one flashed the breakfast food options, and only briefly. You then had to wait for a few minutes for the cycle to come around for the breakfast menu to appear again. Strangely, they broadcasted the lunch menu continually (it was 8a still), in addition to some bible thumper program. I just walked out. I get that systems and people were stressed during the pandemic, but this is just plain neglectfulness and they lost business because if it. You could view the menu on your smartphone, but I was almost out of power. A room a few doors down from me a smoke alarm went off which rang forever. No one from the staff ever checked out the potential fire in that room (I suspect they were smoking something). The people just kept their front door open till the smoke in the room dissipated. I walked over to make sure everything was OK but they immediately slammed the door shut. There is no main sitting chair in the room. Sitting was either the bed, or on a uncomfortable plastic desk chair under the TV. Read less

The pool bartender Elijah was great! We came down to the pool each night and he provided us with great customer service, super polite and personable and served us quick! Definitely one of the nicest bartenders i’ve ever had.
