2020 Family Vacation
by Alicia on 08/09/2020
This was our fourth time staying at El Matador. Second time in unit 415. We truly enjoy our vacations here. The environment is welcoming, we always feel safe. The staff does a great job at keeping the grounds beautified. And they always have a warm hello. Thank you for your hospitality!

Nice Condo!
by Shawna on 06/30/2020
We enjoyed the condo and it was exactly as pictured. It was so nice being on the ground floor and not having to get on the elevators, but you do trade your view of the ocean for this. The condo kitchen was well supplied with cookware. We enjoyed our stay and the condo was very clean and comfortable.

Stay Review
by Alexis on 06/16/2020
I enjoyed the grounds as usual. We come every year. Despite the tropical storms, it was a lovely stay. Thank you.

8/3 to 8/10 vacation
by Roger on 08/11/2019
everything was satisfactory and as advertised, ocean was dirty but that has nothing to do with accomodations. I would stay here again but would pick a higher unit to get a view. All personel were very friendly and helpful.

The Most Amazing Get Away
by Marghi on 10/16/2018
Our time at El Matador was the most beautiful and relaxing time that I can recall in forever! We traveled from Tallahassee one day after Hurricane Michael, and the traffic on I 10 was totally blocked and stopped us for over an hour. After a LONG trip to Ft.Walton, the weather was beautiful and this particular unit was so clean and newly furnished that we felt an instant calm. I did not want to leave and will most definitely arrange to return. Thank you so much for this little piece of heaven.

Amazing Condo and Service
by Lauren on 10/15/2018
Love staying in 415, perfect location. Was pleasantly surprised by the renovations and updates. The condo is beautiful and decorated perfectly! Thanks again for an amazing experience!

by George on 08/19/2018
We have been staying at the El Matdor for 40 plus years and always a pleasure.Staff rooms,and grounds perfect thank you for a wonderful vacation. We will be back.

Always a great stay
by Cynthia on 07/30/2018
This is our 5th year here. By that alone should be an indication of how much we enjoy staying at El Matador. Office staff is very friendly and accommodating. Rooms and grounds are very clean and kept. Location is superb!

Another Home Run
by Marvin on 11/07/2017
This is our third or fourth stay; and it did not disappoint. I can't say enough about the staff and their ability to make our stay as comfortable as possible; feels just like home. Looking forward to our next visit. See you in the spring.

Great accommodations and location

Title says it all, clean room, great view, great access to beach, quiet, spacious list just goes on, we will be back.

Vacation at el matador 415
by Mindy on 08/22/2017
Condo was roomy and clean. Had a bit of a musty odor, but I guess should be expected being so close to the water. It was a little aggravating that the sliding door had to be locked with a broom handle. Overall it was a great experience and I will be taking the family back next year. I also thought It was really nice that previous guests had left water toys for future guests to enjoy as well. A great place to enjoy a Florida vacation.

5 stars!
by George on 08/07/2017
We enjoyed our stay at the El Matador! As always, for the past 40 years we will return again. 415 is very nice. You all deserve a 5 plus star!
by George on 08/07/2017

Love El Matador
by Steve And Suzanne on 09/13/2016
We have been vacationing at El Matador off and on for many years. This year as empty nesters we stayed in 1 BR unit 415. It was meticulously clean and had everything we needed during our stay. The grounds of El Matador were well groomed,the pool was extremely clean and the furniture in excellent condition. The only thing we noticed this time was the number of birds that would flock to the edge of the pool for a drink of water. Other beach accommodations we have used in other cities have elevated fishing line strung in an X formation above the pool to deter birds. Something for El Matador to consider. :-)

Good times
by Rick on 08/29/2016
We had a wonderful time @ El Matador again. We will be back next year. Thank you.

415 El Matador
by Mark on 08/24/2016
My experience was great. All the staff was very friendly. The grounds were well maintained and the unit was very nice. I will recommend El Matador to my friends and family. I hope we can go back there again very soon!

Beautiful Resort
by Ron on 07/24/2016
This is our 6 year in a row to stay at El Matador we absolutely love it. This time though our Yeti ice chest was stolen off our patio on Thursday night. We were very upset that someone would do this. It's never happened before but we appreciate the staff looking thru the camera for us ... Hate a tree blocked the view. But we plan to be back . The resort is beautiful!


Spacious and clean
by Dreama on 06/03/2016
Our accommodations were perfect for out Memorial Day weekend. The unit was spacious, clean and the ground floor access was perfect.
by Jeffery on 05/21/2016
Always pleased with the el matador... For 23 years!!
by Bernard on 05/02/2016
We had one of the best stays we have ever had. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful anniversary! Can't wait to come back!

Great Place
by Josh on 04/12/2016
Room 415 was awesome. The ground level was great for the kids to play in the "backyard" just outside our door. Really close to one of the pools and just a few steps away from the ocean. Thanks!

by Patricia on 10/19/2015
Well gated for security. Friendly staff. Well kept

Wonderful Stay
by Melanie on 09/21/2015
I love the El Matador! This was my 3rd time staying at El Matador, as always it was just wonderful. The unit was clean and comfortable. This was my first time staying on the the ground floor. It was very convenient to the pool and the beach. The only thing that would have made it better would be being able to lock/unlock the sliding glass door from the outside. But we left it unlocked while going to the pool and beach and had no problems. We felt very safe the entire time. Can't wait to come back next year!

415 El Matador
by Mark on 08/25/2015
We were both very pleased with the condo, its location and access to the beach and swimming pool. The unit was clean and well stocked with dishes and utensils. Our only complaint was when the air conditioning failed 2 days before we were to leave. The temporary air conditioner was satisfactory, if a bit intrusive. Your staff was very friendly and helpful at each encounter. I will definitely recommend the El Matador to my friends and family and we hope to stay there again.

by James on 06/14/2015
The rooms were great and clean. We are planing on coming back soon.

Nice lodging experience
by Maurice on 06/06/2015

Condo 415
by Bernard on 04/27/2015
We had a wonderful stay. The condo was so clean and nice, just like home. We would like to rent this one again!

Review for weekend stay in 415
by Amanda on 10/14/2014
Wonderful accommodations ! Was disappointed when another guest told us we could rent a unit for the MONTH for $1200 when we paid $500 for a 3 day weekend . Unit we had was perfect for us with a 17 month old . I do suggest a kiddie pool for smaller kids

Back after a long time
by Andrea on 09/15/2014
Came here many times as a child. First time back in 15 years. It is just as great as I remembered. We will be back next year!

Excellent view and location
by Angelia on 09/10/2014
We really enjoyed our stay here. The condo was clean and well kept. And the view of the beach was spectacular. Hope to stay here each time we visit.

by Jason on 07/19/2014

by John on 07/09/2014
Very nice!

Our stay
by Charles on 05/27/2014
We had a fabulous time and would love to come back as soon as we can. Our condo was great. It was roomy, comfortable and we loved that it was close to the water. Everyone was helpful and we couldn't have asked for more. Thank you

great place to vacation
by Thomas on 05/10/2014
We love the El Matador. It is a great place to vacation. First, the staff is wonderful, friendly and accommodating. The units are immaculate as well are the grounds, pools, and parking lots, very safe too with around the clock security, all at a reasonable price. On the beach, close to town, great eating places - what else could one ask for? Our perfect vacation is: sleep, lay on the beach or by the pool, eat great seafood, sleep, lay on the beach or by the pool, eat great seafood, sleep…you get the picture. El Matador fills the bill in every way. We highly recommend it.
