Parc Corniche Condominium Resort Hotel

Reviewed March 12, 2014

We stayed here 7 years ago. Our stay this time was horrible! We got locked out of our back door after securing the front with the swing latch. The back door knob simply rotated and would not open. The manager indicated he would do nothing til 7am the next morning; it was now 2am!
They did offer us another room, but we had none of our belongings. The manager claimed his locksmith would charge $500..we found a locksmith who would do it for $75!

The washer ate my money. It took 30 mins til a utility guy got my money back out.

The rooms have become dirty compared to 7 years prior.

Very little english spoken here...they just smile and pretend they know what you are saying.

The continental breakfast is a joke.

The pool? Junk!
Hot tub? Junk!

We will never stay here again with this sort of customer service!

The only positive is that it is close to the Disney parks.

By contrast, our second half of the trip was at a Hampton which cost about $75 more per night...the Hampton rocked! Super clean, fantastic customer support and beautiful pool and hot tub surroundings.

Save yourself the aggravation; spend a little more on your vacation and stay at a nice place.

The Parc Corniche is not much better than a Red Roof Inn.

Room Tip: Avoid the place is my tip.

We booked at the Parc Corniche as part of an Orbitz travel package. We booked this trip back in October, and stayed at the Parc Corniche March 2, 2014 through March 4, 2014. Here is our review of the hotel.

PROS:
Good location to Disney World, Sea World and other attractions: If you're looking for something out of the "resort" communities, this isn't far at all.
Staff: the staff were friendly and helpful. Lots of smiles and able to assist with restaurant recommendations and other helpful information.
Condo Set up is a nice idea: We liked the idea of a condo with a separate living area and bedroom. While we didn't use the kitchen, the full fridge is nice for those staying longer.
Ample Parking: Plenty of spaces to park near your room
Pool was lovely: the pool was warm and so relaxing. We spent our arrival day in the pool.
A/C was ice cold: Just like we like it. It was unseasonably warm when we were there, and the A/C was perfect.


NOT A "PRO" BUT NOT A "CON":
Wifi cost: $4 a day for wi-fi is quite inexpensive compared to other hotels that charge $15 a day.
Water tastes TERRIBLE: Heavily chlorinated. Bring bottled water if you can.
Breakfast included: While nice, it isn't great. Mostly fast options like toaster waffles and donuts. We chose to eat at Panera up the street.


CONS:
Furniture uncomfortable: The living room furniture was very stiff....not comfortable at all! The bed had seen it's better days. The mattress, while firm, had a visible 'dip' in the middle, making it almost V shaped! The pillow case on one of our pillows was stained with black marks, possibly from the closet where it was stored.
Mold: in humid climates, mold and rust are common. But there are ways to combat that. We noticed mold in the bathroom along the base boards.
No Dish soap: there was a packet of dishwasher detergent, but no soap for doing a quick wash up at the sink. I used a spoon from the drawer and to run the dish washer for one spoon is a waste of water. I used a little bath wash and it did the trick. But having a little bottle of liquid dish soap would have been nice.

The place has defiantly seen it's better days. And while it would be nice to have all brand-new furnishings to bring it from 1988 to 2014, it was do-able for our stay. We weren't in the room for more than the evenings after our days out and about. It met our needs.

We decided to stay outside of a Disney resort because we were able to get a FedEx discount to have two rooms (one for my husband and I and one for our two teens) and a kitchen. We decided to get the upgraded room for a few extra dollars hoping that it would be a better room. Our particular room (5202) was clean and decently appointed and the kitchen and bathrooms were nice. The concierge service was excellent and the hotel is placed in a decent area. Surrounded by a Marriott's golf course so you can take a nice walk without too much traffic noise around you.

The hitches were...
1. Wi-Fi is $4.00 extra per day.
2. The water from the tap is horrible. You MUST buy bottled water and a gallon tap. NOTE: This isn't Parc Corniche's problem but be aware of it anyway.
3. The floor/ceilings were not reinforced with a noise reduction. Our family brought a white noise machine from home and still couldn't fall asleep from the tromping from the family above us. It had the sound of a pack of elephants over and over again even after midnight.
4. The breakfast area was chaotic. If there is no room to eat they request (on a sign) that you cannot take food outside of the breakfast area. While waiting on a shuttle to Universal we tried the coffee and it tasted like an instant coffee that was horrible.

If we were ever to go back to Orlando we would probably pass on this hotel. We would save more and splurge for one of the Disney resort family rooms.

This was a 3 night stay bought in a package by my husband. We actually upgraded to this property for an extra $25 per night! The view from our unit was the only good part- the neglect in upkeep was astounding! I took photos because I thought that otherwise, nobody would believe us! The toaster oven was filthy with black and the side of the fridge was covered with dirt spots, possibly mould! The bathtub drain was covered in rust and the overflow drain for the bathroom sink looked as if it had never been cleaned. We are accustomed to time shares and have been owners since the early 80's, so our accommodations are always of a high standard. To day we were disappointed is an understatement! The manager was quite unconcerned when we showed him the photos.
From the outside, the buildings look OK and there's a lovely golf course on the neighbouring property which provides the view from Parc Corniche. Play golf next door, but don't stay here!

I stayed in a regular unit in Feb. 2014 for 5 days and it was awful. The bath tub was pulled away from the caulking and made bad sounds if you stood up. I think the Health Dept. would not approve of the cracks in the caulking. The lower part of the press board cupboard in the other part of the bathroom was dissolved and chipped. The carpet between the bedroom and living room was ripped and frayed. The windows were dirty and the balconey had not been hosed for a long time.
The good thing is location and they let me check in early. Maybe if you pay extra you get an updated unit but my unit 1209 should not be rented out until the windows are cleaned, carpet is repaired and bathroom is renovated.

Room Tip: Pay for renovated rooms

Let me tell you the good point first.They have good breakfast options. Affordable. Good parking space

Beds were not cleaned up well. I hate that dirty red bed spread. You can stay there if you have planned to spend the whole day out.
