Fantastic Room, Fantastic Location!
Truly a home away from home! The room and amenities were above all expectations. Great price and the most relaxing vacation we’ve ever had! It was a perfect place to reconnect with yourself, the world around you, and the one you love. We will definitely be back!

The sliding glass door in the shower came off tracks multiple times.
Manager's Response:  Thank you for letting us know about the sliding door.  We will make sure maintenance addresses the issue.

Great location + beach was amazing. room ok.
Amazing location. Great for families. Very private beach access, and the best beach we have ever been to in florida. Crystal clear water!!! Room was okay. A little dated furniture, and no bedroom door! (eek!). View from the room was of the ocean! AMAZING VIEW!

Spring break
The condo was big. We were surprised how big it was for a 1 bedroom. Great views from the balcony. Easy unloading and loading with the carts provided. Will definitely come back!!!
Apr 2021
The view was beautiful and the location is always awesome. The patio could use some new patio furniture and (2) tall chairs. The kitchen was very well equipped and updated and had everything we needed to cook meals. The condo was very clean but furnishings were just a little tired. The bed was small and not uncomfortable.

Very nice , every thing as it should be , glad we stayed here

Always a pleasure to say at elmatador 335 was very nice but furniture should be up graded some couch,chairs, mattress, pictures coming door way. But had great time will return as always Dee& George Voudrie
Oct 2019
Unit 335 was rented by me for my daughter and her husband and two young kids. It was also very comfortable and home-like. The view was great, and the Unit had a good beach access. My family and I would stay at El Matador again when in the area.

Yearly Vacation Week
Every year we come from Idaho to spend a week at El Matador Condos. The El Matador Management Company Staff is always welcoming and happy to see us. It has become a tradition, and the staff at El Matador Management Company make us feel like we've come home each stay. The unit is always cleaned to perfection and well stocked, the view is beyond breath-taking!

Enjoyed our stay, room was accommodating wish it had a king size bed.
Oct 2018
Wonderful unit
This if probably our fourth or fifth time in this unit-we really love it! The kitchen and bath are updated, and the kitchen has everything you could need! We look forward to going back every year!
Aug 2018
Enjoyed the condo
The condo was great. I loved the view and location. The mattress in the bedroom was super soft on one side and firm on the other which was strange and made sleeping challenging at times. That was the only thing that I would suggest changing.
Aug 2018
Room 335
The room was very nice with a great view overlooking the pool and the ocean. The only things that I would say can use some improving with would be, there is no ceiling fans so a nice stand up fan on the living room and bedroom would be nice. My family and I have a difficult time breathing at night without fans and especially with the Florida heat, it would have been nice, because the AC did not go lower than 68. And the Fridge never cooled off so it would not keep the food or drinks cold at all, but the freezer worked wonderfully. Besides those two things the trip and the room were amazing! I could not ask for a better view from the balcony!!

Fabulous Stay
My family and I just stayed at this resort this past week. Very Clean, comfy beds, great views, and the staff was very friendly. We will definitely be coming back!!

Great Time - Highley Recommend
This was our first time staying at El Matador. The Condo we rented was perfect. The photos of the unit looked great, they matched what we experienced. Great view of the pool and the Gulf. We thought the location was perfect as well. Our compliments to the friendly staff. We'll be back. Thank You for a great spring break vacation.

Very clean and well maintained!
My daughter had a wedding and reception here this week and it was just wonderful! Property is well maintained and clean condo upon arriving. We were overall very pleased!

King Bed & TV
We loved your condo and the updated kitchen and bath. We only would liked to have had a king size bed and a TV in the master bed room. The furniture on the patio could use some love also, but the larger bed and tv would make this unit excellence plus. Thanks for allowing us to use your home for that week. If we come back again next year we will request your unit again if it has a larger bed. We are two old folks and need a little more room then when we were young.

Great Location at Okaloosa Island
Unit 35 is very nice,well kept and clean. Fantastic views of the beach & pool. easy access to them as well. This was our second visit to El Matador and we are all ready planning our third. We have to talk about the staff; everyone we came in contact with was outstanding. Security, grounds folks and the young ladies in the rental office.

Enjoyed our Stay
As always, we really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and nice. Just a couple suggestions: Wish there was a TV in the bedroom. Would be nice to have a second PVC "high chair" on the balcony.

Great Location at Okaloosa Island
El Matador is situated close to everything you need and Unit 335 provides easy access to beachfront. This unit has been updated and has great square footage for a 1 bedroom. It had everything to meet our needs for the week. Easy access to the coin laundry (next door literally). The queen mattress needs to be replaced as it felt worn out, an upgrade to a King with good support would be beneficial to future guests. However, we are still satisfied with this Unit. Thanks El Matador.

Beautiful, clean, nice view.

Great. Escape
The Staff was very friendly and the stay was stress free they have taken good care of the place. We will stay with them on the next escape.

Very nice experience
My husband and I had a wonderful experience at the El Matador in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. They had all the silverware, pots, pans, dishes, etc. that we needed for the entire week. The room we rented out, 335, was very spacious and super tidy when we arrived. The only thing I wish they would've provided us with were more trash bags for their trash cans, but we got them for $3 at the grocery store, so it wasn't a huge deal. Upgrades will probably be needed soon, as I saw a few cracks and worn out places throughout the unit, but for the price and the location, it was exceptionally wonderful! I would definitely stay there again! Tina and Doug Knapp

Excellent Unit
This one bedroom unit had been updated and had very nice view of the pool and Gulf through the palm trees. I would recommend it to anyone. The staff at the rental office was very accommodating and helpful.
Apr 2016
Fantastic updated unit
The pictures don't do this unit justice. The updates and upgrades are fantastic! We were so excited to find the granite counters, stainless steel appliances and updated bathroom. It is head and shoulders above pretty much all the condos we have rented at El Matador. The one negative was the bed. It's a bit old lumpy but not the worst we've had in a condo. We plan to rent this unit again!
Aug 2015
Unit 335 fabulous
The updates are great. Wonderful view. Bed was a little hard but still slept like a rock.
Jun 2015
Great place to stay, great views, large condos, excellent all around
May 2015
Condo was clean and updated. Quiet and the view was beautiful! Convenient to many things. Hospitality room was great as we were part of a group of 16 who were gathered for a reunion of former coworkers.

Our Stay
We enjoyed our stay very much. The grounds and the beach were beautiful. Our condo was very nice. The office staff extremely nice and very helpful. The only complaint we had was the patchwork in the ceiling above the sliding glass door. Poor workmanship. Will stay there again.

The Unit With The Great Kitchen!

Room Review
My wife and I had a very nice time at the facility. The room met our expectations and we did not encounter any problems. The exercise bike in the gym was not working. I told the lady at the desk. I checked the bike again towards the end of the week and it was still not working. Thanks for a great time.

El Matador Fort Walton Beach Florida
Great area to spend winter months. El Matador has helpful staff and many relaxing features to be enjoyed by all guests. All areas and grounds are very well maintained. Beautiful views. Many fun activities planned with all invited to join in. If a problem occurs the staff quickly addresses the problem and handles it with professional manners. Guests do have to take care choosing condos over the internet as some photos and descriptions do not actually describe conditions of each condo accurately. Upkeep and updates of insides of each condo is by the private owners, so some maybe dated. Next year we will be returning for our fourth winter if that tells you something.
