Great view and quiet condo
The view from 437 was amazing. Great view of the gulf pool and the gulf were breathtaking. The condo as clean and equipped with almost everything we needed except a broom to sweep up sand. The master king bed was really hard and after 5 nights caused some stiffness but we can overlook that. The shower drained very slowly and we had to plunge it several times. Check in was easy and our room was available early. The condo is definitely outdated, but being in a quiet area was well worth it. We felt safe with the security gate regulating guests. Easy walk around the building to the sand. Beach chairs were easy to rent and friendly service. Would definitely return. We also rented the Fiesta room on site for our wedding reception and it was easy to get rented. All in all Great trip. We has 40 guests say at the resort with very little complaints. Thanks again.

Clean, Great Location, Needs Updated
This was our first time to the area and El Matador was recommended to us by family. We had unit 437. We had Gulf and pool view from the balcony. Our room was very convenient to the pool and the beach. The set up of the room is nice with a full kitchen and small appliances, dishes, etc., two bathrooms (one shower) and a living area. The rooms were clean but we were disheartened by the lack of updates. By this I mean the mattresses in all the rooms were out dated as well as the bedding on the twins. The king bedroom was nice but the bed was very hard and uncomfortable. The two twins in the second bedroom were very worn down to the point it felt like we were sliding off of the bed. It also had very dated bedding (which in our minds means dirty). None of the headboards are connected to the bed, just leaned against the wall. Overall, this is a very nice room with amenities. Just a little bit of an investment from the owner could make this a very nice place.

Unit 437
This was our third year to come to El Matador and every year has been better than the one before. Can't beat the location! This unit was very comfortable.

Nice unit with good views and easy access
The unit was very clean, open, and spacious. The easy access to the beach and pool area as well as the views were great. The kitchen was pretty well equipped. However, the beds were very hard and uncomfortable which was our biggest problem. It was literally softer to lay on the floor than in the actual bed. The sofas weren’t much better as they were very hard also. That was really our only negative but unfortunately enough of a complaint to not be able to give a 5/5 because, to me, being able to sleep comfortably is important while on vacation.
