Perfect Vacation
We love staying here, especially this unit. The views are breathtaking!! The unit is comfortable and always ready for us to relax and enjoy getting away from OKC. We have stayed in this unit twice and love it.
Jun 2023
This is our second stay in this unit and we love everything about it! I wish all of the units had the accommodations the second room has. The only suggestion we have would be to change the mattress in the master bedroom. It's got two giant indentations and rolling over was a chore that we had to fully wake ourselves up to do. We can't wait to come back next year. Hopefully, our favorite unit will be available!

Beautiful Condo
Had a wonderful stay at this condo. The open kitchen is different than most others. Great beds, sofa and bathrooms. Absolutely loved it!!

Summer stay
We had a perfect week staying at el matador and room 423. Everything was wonderful!! There was a bar stool we couldn’t use due to some screws missing and a couple of dirty dishes but nothing that would make us not enjoy the place, property and ocean.
Aug 2020
This is our third year at El Matador and our first in this unit. It was another great year there and we would stay in this unit again!
Jul 2020
Everything was great! My only issue is that the website didn’t mention anything about coin operated laundry or limited things in room (I.e. no spices, two toilet paper). I e visited Florida several times and our rentals always had an abundance of these things. We didn’t find out about any of this until 3 days before our stay. The room was great, we had no issues. A couple things weren’t perfect, but no home is.

Fun Family Time
My husband, daughter, son in law, 3 grandchildren and I had a wonderful time. The unit 423 was spacious, clean and comfortable. We enjoyed grilling out in the grill area while the kids played in the pool. The men had a great time fishing. We love the beach, and El Matador!! We hope to see you next year!
Sep 2019
The room was beautiful and everything we needed. The only issue was there being only one remote that worked all 3 televisions. Two of the 6 chairs on the balcony need replaced. Simple fixes! I would definitely book again!!

One of our favorite spots in Florida
Each fall we usually head to FWB and El Matador is the best place to stay at. Friendly staff and clean accommodations.

Our stay
We enjoyed our stay this year. Everyone was very helpful and pleasant. The furniture in the bedroom used by our daughter had not been delivered and you tried to make a bed to take its place. We hope to be able to return again to this beautiful area and to El Matador!
MANAGEMENT RESPONSE  We are happy to let you know that the furniture has been delivered and the unit looks great!  Thank you for working with us regarding the guest bedroom.

July 18-25
The condo we stayed in was perfect. It had everything we could possibly need and was decorated beautifully. We have been staying at El Matador for 35 years and never had a problem but we had to call the gate over the family in 412. We had to doge tennis balls if we were on our balcony. We are dinner outside Monday night and one of the kids hit a ball with a tennis racquet oveturned a wine bottle, broke a glass that sent pieces into our shrimp and lobster and we had to throw it out. We cleaned red wine off the walls. I am not sure who they rented from. They also had part of their family in 422. Managers Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation. We are so sorry that you had an issue with another guest. However, one of the reasons that El Matador is so great is that we have 24 hour security available to promptly take care of any situation that might arrive during your stay. We hope that we will have the pleasure of providing your accommodations the next time you visit beautiful Okaloosa Island.

The accommodations were perfect. Even though it rained everyday, the condo was a cheery place to be.

Family stay 3/24 -3/28
El Matador is a very nice and comfortable complex. Unfortunately the internet router or the module is having issues. We could not get online for two days. Called COX and was told there was an outage in the area,funny how everybody we talked to had internet. In the end I reset the router but, it would drop the signal periodically. The roof work done to our complex was noisy but understand that it needs done. Wished this was mentioned before we took the room. One of the foremost things about taking vacations is not waking up to the clock. Sleeping in is all about getting caught up on rest. Having to hear that skylift horn starting at 8am throughout the day was nerve racking. It would have been very nice to warn renters of the issues so they could make decision. The staff members were polite and extremely nice. I would recommend El Matador to friends and family. Managers Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your unit and let us know about the issues you had with your room. We have fixed the internet in that room and apologize for the issues you had with the maintenance to the building. We were under the impression that they were making the necessary repairs without creating any noise. However, we did not take into consideration the noise coming from the lift when it is being moved. The construction should be completed shortly and this should no longer be an issue. Once again we thank you for taking the time to review the unit and we value your patronage.

A Week in Paradise
Our stay in Unit 423 was fantastic! It was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen, flat screen TVs, and wireless . Being on the second floor made it easy to access the beach and pool as well as the car. I liked seeing a security guard walk the premises and the grounds were routinely kept neat and clean. Our weather week was unbelievable with perfect temps and clear water every day! I look forward to returning next year!

Excellent experience
The condo was fantastic. It had everything we wanted and more. The kitchen had everything you could ever want. The overall area was close to the pool and the beach. I have nothing but good things to say about this condo. I would definitely rent it again.
