Travel Blogs from Orlando
Almost a year ago Vera and I purchased tickets to Sea World's Aquatica water park (http://aquaticabyseaworld.com). Our visit was postponed due to the children being sick, my work travel schedule, and so on. But now we finally did it. We drove up on Friday night to Orlando and stayed two nights at the Parc Corniche (http://parccorniche.com/) where …

Historical Traveler Reviews Parc Corniche Condominium Resort Hotel Orlando
We stayed at The Parc Corniche in 2002 and I have wanted to return ever since. The accommodation was very clean and the facilities were great.
The bar on site was an added bonus as you don't get bars like that in the States.
I would not hesitate to recomend this site and we are hoping to buy an apartment as and when one becomes available.
Great location, very spacious
We recently returned from a 2 week holiday at the Parc Corniche. I was concerned after reading some of the reviews on this site but can't see what the problem was that people were talking about. My family and I had a lovely time and would return in a minute. The staff was great and the location can't be beat. It was great to have a full kitchen which we really only used the Micro and the Fridge. Free breakfast was a plus, but after 14 days we needed a change so we went to Dennys across the street. We got to all the attractions in short time. I booked through a travel agent, but found out that you can get a great deal by booking on the hotel's website. Warm weather, sunshine, heated pool, who could ask for more?
We just returned from a week at the Parc Corniche. We had a great time.
I stayed in this hotel in October 2002, it has to be the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. T he rooms were dirty there were bugs on the walls, countertops and telephone. Bed sheets were stained , the bathroom was filthy need i say more . The unfortunate thing was that we had to stay there for 2 nights before Kuoni Travel company found us alternate accomodation to which we had to pay an extra ?500 for the pleasure of staying there. Needless to say i would never stay there or recommend it to anyone which is a shame as its a great location but terrible hotel. As a regular visitor to Orlando i now always stay in a villa. Much better fun and more relaxing.
We had a great time
We just returned from a stay at Parc Corniche and had a great time. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean and the staff was excellent.
We had stayed there a few years ago and were suprised to see some of the changes since our last visit. We had 3 TV's in our 2 bedroom condo and the beds were brand new (a little stiff, I think they need to be broken in). There was a brand new exercise facility there also. We booked our stay on their website and got an extra discount because we added tickets. We would go back again.
We have stayed at this resort about 10 times within the past 15 years and while the staff has remained efficient and friendly the property has gone downhill big time. The rooms are not clean, no pillow cases on the pillows, sinks and bath tub not clean, cobwebs on the ceiling, musty smell in rooms and in general just a very noticeable decline in the resort as a whole. We were there Jan. 1,2004 and checked in to find these conditions. We went down to the pool area only to find that some kids had thrown all the towels in the pool and were treating some families very rudely. That was it! We checked out and found another place to stay for the same price and was 100% better than the Parc Corniche. Ater all these years of going there, we will never go back.
Wasnt what I expected...
The staff were extremely helpful and were there within minutes of any request, the check in and check out was fast with no problems, but the quality of the rooms were a disappointment. They were out dated and very crowded and had a musty smell that even leaving the doors open wouldnt fix. They were fully equipped with all you needed, with the exception of a washer and dryer. There were washers and dryers on the premises but only 2 each, with a very long wait to use them. The location is great and close to everything and it would have been an exceptional experience if the room quality was a little better.
We Stayed at the Parc Corniche Dec 24th, 2003 to Jan 2nd, 2004 and were largely pleased with our experience there. Our room was very large and roomy (we had 2 adults, 2 seniors and 2 teenagers) everyone had space.
I have never been treated so rudely by a hotel employee. When we checked in, they had booked us a room that was the exact opposite of what we requested. We got in our room, there was grease all over the stove. When I went back to the front desk and asked if someone could come clean it, I was treated very rudely by the man at the desk. I went into the store and came back to the desk to ask another question, waiting behind a gentleman checking out. When it was my turn, he started to wait on the gentleman waiting in line behind me. The gentleman told him I was there first, and he responded, "I already helped her." I told him I had some more questions, and he told me I could just wait until the gal got off the phone to help me. Every time I called to ask a question, such as how to get anywhere on the trolley, where to get groceries, he could not give me an answer and wouldn't try to help. The other guests staying there from England gave me more information than anyone at the hotel. I received absolutely NO information regarding anything from anyone there except the guests.
We enjoyed our stay at the Parc Corniche. Its in a pretty good location within short drives of all the major parks and close to I drive restaurants and shopping. Didnt use the restaurant or free buffet breakfast so cant comment on that, The room was tidy, well furnished and a good size with a well equiped kitchen. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also very nice. regular maid service kept the place very clean and tidy. We really enjoyed the heated whirlpool spa and swimming pool area whic was fairly quiet when we visited( though this may have been due to it being the week after Sept 11th) Only real criticism was a minor problem with the aircon and lots of mosquito bites due to the place being in the middle of a golf course. We would certainly go again.
