Reviewed yesterday NEW

I enjoyed my stay at Avanti. It was clean, large hotel, the pool are was nice, has a bar (drinks were expensive), and the resort in on International drive and close to everything. The rooms are large and the bathrooms are very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

We used this as a pit stop for our 1st night after flying in from U.K., it was a welcome base for one night, the staff were lovely, room a bit ropey, we booked a family room but no bed made up for kids. The pool was great. I guess it was basic and as we did book last minute...
