El Matador and Condo
El Matador management was great. Very accommodating. Gym was great and updated. Condo had updated kitchen, well stocked with everything, great shower in bath and air conditioning was excellent. Would suggest for rugs and furniture to be updated. Would have had a more refreshing smell and cleaner furnishings. After being there more than a few days, it was noticeable that it needed new upholstered furniture, bed, bed linens and updated window treatments.

Loved the area The only thing that I would suggest is that the owners replace the vertical blinds. Great pools and the ocean was beautiful but a bit rough a couple of days.

Great stay
Our stay was great and had fun. Will be returning in the future to stay again. Only issue was the fans began shaking in the living room as if they were not leveled.

Really enjoyed our stay! Came down for my cousins “celebration of life”. Although our stay was short, the accommodations at the El Matador we’re very pleasing. Looking forward to returning back to spend more time.

Fantastic time!!
I was down on vacation for a week with ten other families all staying on the property. Some rooms were better than others, but I was extremely happy with mine! It was clean, updated (granite countertops, new stainless steel refrigerator and dish washer), and nice view of the ocean. We had breakfast on the balcony each morning at a cute table and chair set. I'd absolutely come back and, if possible, reserve the room I just stayed at.

Great View
We really enjoyed sitting at the high table on the deck while eating breakfast and lunch. It had a postcard view!! The unit was nice and had everything we needed. The Kierig coffee pot was very handy.

Overall very good.
Unit 144, located in bldg.1, second floor. Had a good view of the ocean. The unit itself was very nice. The king size bed was very comfortable. However the fitted sheet was much too wide thus causing many wrinkles. Probably not a problem for most people but I have nerve damage and my back it ultra sensitive. Kitchen has two coffee makers. One is a 12 cup and the other is a single serve Keurig.The A/C was very good. We were very happy with this unit an at the last minute tried to rent it for another week. Sadly, all units were booked. We will reserve this unit again if available.

Enjoyed our Stay
I enjoyed room 144 very much. Great room however the master bedroom ran warm overnight and the bed was uncomfortable. I love the El Matador still and will continue to stay yearly.

Manager's Repsonse:  Thank you for reviewing your stay.  We will pass this information along to the owner.
