Thoroughly enjoyed staying in unit 417! We It was so nice and clean plus very easy access to the beach/pool. Loved the open concept of the kitchen and living room. The kitchen had a lot of useful appliances and kid friendly dishes. It would be nice to have a queen or king size bed in the 2nd bedroom, but it would not stop us from booking this unit again. Once again, our stay was great, and we love coming to El Matador. We have been coming here since we got married in 2009 and will continue to choose the El Matador for our family vacations.

We have been coming to El Matador annually for about 30 years and it never disappoints! It is my favorite vacation spot.

El Mat room 417
The El Matador is a beautiful property and we have been vacationing there since ~ 1980. The location is great, especially with the Air Force property next door that allows an uncrowded beach. I liked that this area still allows canopies. We have small grandchildren and canopies are the best way to protect them from the hot summer sun. These two points are one of the main reasons that we chose this location. However, I don't think it fair for the beach rental to create a wall of chairs and umbrellas that restricts access. This is a generic issue with all beaches. Room 417 was what you would expect for a vacation rental and the fact that its a first floor unit is awesome. There where a few concerns to note. (1) The stove eyes need to be replaces. They where uneven and I just gave up using two of them. (2) Sometimes the freezer door would slightly open when I closed the refrigerator door. I had to remind myself to check it. (3) The provided skillets where awful to cook with. This is typical of most vacation rentals so I should just bring my own. (4) Sometime the patio door would not lock correctly. However, as long as the beach access dose not change and I would gladly stay in 417 again.
Manager's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and letting us know about the issues with the room.  The owner has replaced the stove and the pans. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed El Matador!

Excellent location, condo was clean and roomy. The only complaint is that the beds were a little hard. Would definitely stay again.
