    Very nice and not crowded, perhaps because it's so new. Our deluxe double queen was at the end of one of the 3 wings of this modern-decor hotel, so one long wall was all windows (floor to ceiling). Really neat but you don't want to open the curtains if scared of heights. Room has a tablet to operate the TV. Fortunately the tablet is just an option for working the lights; you can also flip a wall switch for lights. Free, nightly movies at the heated pool were a nice perk. Urban Pantry food court had adequate options; plenty of vegetables and healthy food along with burgers and pizza. Portions are huge but you can box your leftovers and store them in the room's mini fridge; microwaves are available for guest use in the food court but not in the rooms. Food prices are high but we knew that ahead of time. Also the breakfast sandwiches are small and pretty smashed, having been wrapped and put in a warmer by the dozens (like how ball game hot dogs are treated). Elevators require swipe of a room key to select non-public floors; nice in theory for security, but a little tricky in actuality. Buses come by every few minutes to to run between City Walk (and theme park access), Cabana Bay Hotel, and Aventura. Desk service requests were generally prompt. Room safe is nice for storing electronics and cash. One thing we had not realized is that some hotels come with Express Pass and some come with just standard tickets. Next time we would look for the cheapest way to get the Express Passes, as the lines for rides in the parks were VERY long. It's disappointing to spend all the time and money for the trip, and find that we can only do 3 rides in a day due to the lines; not all the rides are that way, but we did the short-line rides the first 2 days, and started on the long-line rides the 3rd day (only rode 3 rides the 3rd day). As for the hotel itself, we found it to be very nice; normally not a fan of modern decor, but they did it well.

    Love this place

    I stayed last week at Adventura with my friend and my two teenage sons. We had a great time! We loved the pool and hot tub area (just wish it was open later). The hotel was very clean. Housekeeping was wonderful and always responded quicky to our requests. There were many different food choices! There is a Starbucks, plus a pizza station, a noodle bowl station, sushi, burgers, and many options for breakfast. The food was a bit pricey, but everything was really good and the service was wonderful! One issue that I had, was I realized when I got home, that I left an entire drawer full of clothes in our room. I called and was transferred to security. The gentleman got all of my information, and is mailing me my clothes. I am so very thankful for this, as many hotels would have just thrown my stuff away! One other note; we really took advantage of the boat service to the parks. There is a shuttle as well, but the boat was much faster, and we never had to wait more than 5 minutes!

    Hotel was great- clean, comfortable and close to everything. Nice amenities but not overloaded with extras. We left the kiddos at home and while the hotel seemed to be family friendly we were not bombarded with other people's kids. Perfect! So bring the kids or don't... the experience will be good either way.

    We have visited the Aventura twice in the last couple of months for drinks and dinner while staying at the next door Sapphire Falls. The modern design and furnishings are a great departure from all of the other on-property hotels and give the Aventura a chic, big city vibe. The craft cocktails at the bar are wonderful, as is their wine and beer list. Twice, we were met with impeccable service from Matos and Andre behind the bar, they were welcoming and friendly and made perfect recommendations.The food is also notable, the wood oven pizzas and noodle bowls are our favorites. We will be visiting again in May, this time staying at the hotel and we can’t wait to experience this place again, with a visit to our favorite bartenders of course ??
