Dramatic price increase
We love the El Matador. We have been customers for 28 years. The prices seem way too high this year. We had some friends not go because of the huge price increase. They also took away the discount usually offered to regular renters. I know that prices do need to increase as the years go by…. Just wondering if you all stayed full with reservations for the months of June and July this year? Susan R

Loved the location and the view was pretty good. Unit was very clean and comfortable. Balcony furniture needs to be replaced, and a smart TV would be a great improvement. Will definitely return in the future.

Feedback on Stay
First time staying at El Matador and we will be back. The check in/out process was efficient with great communication. Rooms were clean and tidy. The only recommendation I would make is to equip the room with some staples - coffee packs, coffee filters, salt, pepper, aluminium foil, paper towels, etc. Not much, just enough to get people started. Lovely facility. Very clean.

Comfort and Style
We were quite comfortable in 338. Plenty of seating and kitchen was stocked with everything we needed during our stay. Slept well in the master bed. Current master bathroom fixtures/wallpaper could use an update. Overall, we enjoyed the decor and appreciated the way old and new blended together. Floor fan did not work. Several outlets are loose in the wall. Master sliding door did not lock/latch. Good view from the balcony. We would stay in this unit again. Thanks for having us!
Manager's Response: We are happy to hear that you had a great stay.  Thank you for letting us know about the issues in the room.  We will make sure that we address them immediately.

Wedding Stay
Enjoyed our stay at El Matador. Too bad that the weather wasn’t warmer. Facility was nice and everyone in the office was very helpful when we arrived. A little pricey but I am sure that is a seasonal thing.

Everything was amazing. Clean, well stocked, comfortable. The one and only negative is the master bathroom. It could use an update. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to friends and family.

El Matador Stay
Beautiful Resort. This was the second time in 2 years that we chose El Matador for our vacation! The condo was beautiful & contained everything we needed. El Matador is perfect for families & we'll definitely be back!!
Jul 2018
Our unit was clean, quiet, and up-to-date. The staff was courteous and friendly. He only inconvenience was the delay in opening the beach side pool.

We had a great week in unit 338! Only recommendations would be the kitchen sink faucet needs to be replaced and the master sink is tricky to get it to turn all the way off. The handle has to be pointed to the right or water drips. Otherwise the condo was great, we loved the decor. Thanks!

Good stay and enjoyable time. Sliding patio doors seem to take a lot of wear and are hard to open and close. Screen door would not stay on. Pool is very nice when the ocean is rough. Rental process is always easy and gate guards are helpful. Last year we got a SPA key and this year we did not and it wasn't until we were leaving we found out the gate guard has the key now. Not a big deal. We are already booked for next Sept in 428. Hard to find couples oriented units 2 kings, 2 queens or mix. Would be nice to be able to sort by bed types on website. Always a good time! Thx. Manager's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are sorry that you received bad information regarding the SPA key. We do have a spa key for each room that you can get from the rental office when you check in. If you check in after hours, please stop by the next day to pick up the key.

Best Vacation Spot ever
I love staying at El Matador. I've been doing it since 2012 and my family has been going for even longer, it's amazing! Best location for beach goers, close to gift shops and restaurants. Friendly front office staff. Beautiful condos that have everything you'll need to enjoy your vacation. I'll never stay anywhere else!

El Matador 338 - Summer 2015
We enjoyed our stay at the El Matador #338. The condo was clean and just as it looked on the website. There were a few problems, broken glass on nightstand as well as very dark master bath. Other than that the condo was great. We would rent this condo again. Manager's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We have replaced the nightstand and are very sorry that it was that way upon your arrival. We hope that we will have the pleasure of providing your accommodations the next time you visit our area.

Great place to vacatio
When I arrived, the condo front office was pleasant and very accommodating. The condo was very clean and had all the comforts of home. Kitchen was perfect, big screen TV's were wonderful updates too. Will definitely come back.
