I was sceptical about staying at the Avanti International Resort after reading some pretty scathing reviews but having just spent two enjoyable weeks there I am wondering if it is the same hotel, my room was absolutely fine, bed was really comfortable & changed as soon as I asked them to, the room was clean & towels & toiletries replaced every day, the housekeeping was excellent as were the reception staff who were always polite & helpful, my safe was not working properly when i arrived, within 10 minutes an engineer had it fixed, I had nothing taken from my room & would not hesitate to stay at the Avanti again, sadly some people expect 5 star hotels & service for 3 or 4 star prices. This is certainly not a made up review it is my own honest opinion. Read less

The hotel keep trying to get Trip Advisor to remove my reviews as I question the authenticity of many of the 5 star posts from people who have only ever made 1 post. I expect this to have to go, too.

The hotel keep trying to get Trip Advisor to remove my reviews as I question the authenticity of many of the 5 star posts from people who have only ever made 1 post. I expect this to have to go, too. I can honestly say that I cannot relate my experience to anything close to the questionable 5 star reviews but I can relate to the comments in 3 stars below. We had theft twice from our room. When reporting to reception we were told, ‘yeah, you can’t leave anything out in your room.’ as though it were my fault money had been taken from a locked room. I strongly got the feeling that this was a common occurrence and the receptionist was not phased at all. She was going to ask staff not to take money from the room in future! It was in a cup HIDDEN behind the TV. Clearly not meant to be found but some one went looking... twice! Very cheap hotel which attracts all different types from red necks to nice families to frat party style students. As such it’s a very noisy place with the pool open until 11pm. Not great if you need to get up early for the parks. Kids and adults whooping and screeching did not make for a restful evening... nor did people say outside their rooms smoking and having a ball. Hotel is very dirty. Lobby is nice but the rest has been photoshopped so don’t expect what you see on line. It bears a resemblance to the glossy pics but the reality is that the place looks a bit of a dive and the rooms are scummy in places. Read less

I was very impressed with my 2 night stay at Avanti International Resort. The hotel room was very nice since there was no carpet on floor so there wasn’t that awful smell that comes from old carpets.

I was very impressed with my 2 night stay at Avanti International Resort. The hotel room was very nice since there was no carpet on floor so there wasn’t that awful smell that comes from old carpets. The bed was very comfortable. The other items in the room were useful such as refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom I wasn’t impressed much but hey it fit the purpose. Overall room was spacious and clean most important. The pool area was well kept and towels were available. The fitness room worked well for me as well. Nothing fancy but cleaned and well kept. Loved the location of this hotel since you can walk to everything and not need to get in your car. You have all kinds of restaurants to choose from and the scenery of beautiful landscaping as your walking is great. The front desk was efficient in checkin but I cannot say else since I never bothered them again since there was nothing I had to complained about in my room. I really did enjoy my stay and I would come back again. I recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Orlando. Read less

The convenience of having the shop/cafe on site was a life saver when drinks and snack where needed after a long day shopping, I have visited Orlando 4 previous times bit must say when I return the Avanti will be the place to stay Read less

Among the spacious room, the kind and hard working house keeping workers, the pool and jacuzzi all those pale in comparison to how the front desk receptionist Michaela and Sarah made me feel about this visit! Both Michaela and Sarah were such a great help with all of my questions and making me feel like a person and not a client. Their vibrant and uplifting spirits made me feel like this is a place I want to come back to, they are a refreshing duo of sorts, I know they should be appreciated at work and definitely allowed to remain a team in any fashion their chemistry meshes everything together.
