Condo 324
The condo was very clean, nicely decorated and kitchen was well furnished. We enjoyed the wonderful view of the pool and beach from the balcony. We stay at El Matador every year and this is our favorite condo so far. Thanks for sharing it with us . See you next year. The Brown's

A Week in Paradise
Perfect for my much-needed vacation! The Unit was all I could have asked for, and I fully intend to return.

Unit 324
We usually stay in bldg 4, but chose unit 324 in bldg 3 this time. The unit was very nicely remodeled and beautifully decorated with the beach theme! It was very clean and the bed was comfy! We loved the view and location! We will definitely come back to this unit in the future and recommend to our friends and family!

Love El Matador
We have been staying here for 20 years. Never disappoints!
Aug 2022
Loved our room
We absolutely loved our stay at El Matador. Our room was perfect with the ocean view and close to the pool. The only issue was the dishwasher, we had to push the door and get in the right spot to come on. Let people know or go check it. Definitely would recommend this room!

Room was very spacious, view was great with easy walk to beach. Pool was clean and cool, room was clean, beds were pretty comfortable. Ice maker didn’t work and the bedroom window leaked twice with a rain storm that left the carpet wet. Husband got stuck in the elevator with 2 ladies that were freaking out for about 10 mins. This has all been reported to be repaired.
Jun 2022
We will be back !
We have visited the El matador 4 times in the past and intend to always stay here each time we come in the future.always welcoming staff .

Unit 324
This was our first time staying at El Matador. We stayed in Unit 324. Amazing!! We even had our wedding on the beach there. Grounds were beautiful! Unit was very spacious and clean! Kitchen had everything we needed. View of the ocean and the pool from the living room and bedroom. Balcony was huge! We ate breakfast and lunch on the balcony every day. Entire staff was very friendly and helpful. Loved our time there! Absolutely loved the condo. We are planning on booking the same unit each year for our anniversary. Loved, loved it!

Great place and friendly staff

One bedroom
The living room space was fantastic. Check in was smooth and efficient. View of the beach and sunsets always a plus. The unit has a mildew odor that was covered by a scented candle thanks to Publix. The remodeling of either the unit above or near by was annoying. Nice place great weight room.

Another Great Visit!
My husband and I have been vacationing at El Matador for many years. We are never disappointed. Friendly staff, well maintained facility, condos are always very clean. We have stayed in 324 numerous times and it now feels like home. Thank you El Matador management and staff, for another wonderful week. The Scott's Rome GA

Unit 324, El Matador Condominiums
This was our third time staying at El Matador. ALWAYS nice & a great stay. Clean & the grounds are so well kept. This unit was perfect as the others have been as well. Will definitely be back next year. Our fav beach & our fav place to stay. Thankful we found this place a few years ago. It truly is great!!!
Oct 2021
We had an amazing time here. It felt like home when we walked in the door. It was super clean inside and out. The pool was fantastic and we loved that it was only a short walk to the gorgeous white sands. We will definitely be back again.
Aug 2021
We loved the resort and accommodations.
Jul 2021
This was our first trip to this area of Florida. The property was everything your web site said it was. We had an extremely relaxing and fun filled vacation. The staff was over the top friendly and we felt very safe during our stay. We will be coming back!!!! Regards, Terry & Cathy Sekscinski
May 2021
Great Unit
The kitchen reno is beautiful! A typically wonderful week at El Matador. It’s my happy place! (Even with double red flags and no umbrellas open for two and a half days!)
May 2021
Excellent Everything!!!
I very much enjoyed the weekend with ya'll. Could lay in bed and watch dolphins frolic in the waves. The beach and pool were both gorgeous. The condo is decorated very nicely and the bed was comfortable. Will likely be returning someday soon.

Oct 2020
We stay there at least twice a year, great view, only issue is the globe feel off the light in entrance at 5:30 am and obviously startled us. We will be back in 4 weeks to same location.

Bathroom sink drains slow and took forever to get dvd all set up. Other than that. Everything great!!!!
Manager's Response: Thank you for letting us know about the sink, we will make sure that we have maintenance take a look at it.

Unit 324
Lovely unit - needs bathroom door rehung so it'll close. Otherwise, lovely.
Oct 2019
We got to check in a few hours early!! The room was so comfortable and cozy!! The pool was great!! The view was perfect!! We will definitely be coming back next year!! Thank you El Matador!!
Jul 2019
Great condo.
We have stayed in this condo before. Neat, clean,not overstuffed with furnishings and decor. Wonderful view from balcony. We will stay in this one again.
Sep 2018
Excellent Vacation
We have now stayed at El Matador a few different times when vacationing and have never been disappointed! I would highly recommend El Matador to anyone visiting the area, as the place is kept up with to the highest standards and the staff is very kind. Thank you again for another amazing vacation!! We absolutely loved our room (324) as it was very spacious and gave our little man plenty of room to crawl around! The bed was extremely comfortable (more comfortable then ours at home lol) and the view was perfect. We will be staying in this room again during our next vacation if it is available. Thank you very much!
Aug 2018
We had a wonderful time. Great view, Condo very nice, the only thing I would ask you improve is to add more paper products. Toilet paper paper towels etc. If things work out we will be back.
Aug 2018
Unit 324
This unit has become one of our new favorites, because we can walk down the stairs and back up and never use the elevators at all! It's good exercise. The unit itself is great and very comfortable.
May 2018
Condo was nice
We have stayed in this same condo for about 18 years and most of the years twice. The only complaint that we have is the sofa is dirty and smells. Other than that, the condo is very nice. I guess you could say we enjoy this condo since we try to reserve ahead in order to get this condo.
May 2018
Great vacation destination.
We really enjoyed our stay, 2nd year in the same condo. The location is excellent right on the beach and the last condo, which makes the beach more private and only a stones throw away. The property is well maintained. We hope to stay here again in the future.
Oct 2017
Wonderful vacation
I highly recommend this condo. Great view and location. The management was great. They went over and beyond to accommodate me and my family. We will be coming back!!!
Oct 2017
The only thing that I would change would be the rental of chairs and umbrella's. Would like for that to be part of the agreement when renting condo, should have at least 2 chairs for your stay.
Jun 2017
Unit 324
The unit is fairly well stocked, excellently stocked in the kitchen. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable. While we typically prefer to be a bit higher in the building, we did enjoy the high top table and chairs on the balcony that allowed us to see over the pool.
Jun 2017
Great time in 324!
Beautiful condo, and grounds. This was a perfect last minute getaway to clear my head from work. Absolutely love the miles of empty beach right next to the property
Apr 2017
This was our first stay, if we come to Ft. Walton again, we will definitely stay with you again.

Always excellent at El Matador! The ladies in the check-in office are so helpful and everyone at the security guard stand is so nice! This is our very favorite place to stay!!! If only y'all could figure out a way to keep the seaweed away!!!!!!
Jul 2016
Enjoyed our Stay
Our stay in unit #324 exceeded our expectations. We were very pleased with the staff and the facilities. We were there celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary as a gift from our son and his family. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived at the security gate. Check-in was friendly and easy. We were highly pleased with our stay. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you

Spacious with a view
Very nice apartment. Clean, spacious, nicely decorated, comfortable bed and living room furniture. The view is amazing and the patio is large and nice. Would definitely rent this one again
Mar 2016
Perfect Week
Whenever we visit the Ft Walton area we always stay at the El Matador. We have stayed in unit 324 several times.The staff and service is always exceptional. The only suggestion I have is that it would be nice if a beach umbrella and two chairs were included with the unit. Otherwise it's perfect.
