Recent stay
Our stay was great. All the office people were great to work with while booking our stay. We will more than likely return for another stay at some point.

We loved it!
My family loved this unit so much! There was plenty of room for all of us. The view was incredible. We loved being in the building closest to the stairs to get on the beach. The only negative we had about the unit was that the fridge wasn’t keeping our stuff very cold. We didn’t complain because it was tolerable. We will 100% look into this unit for next year!

Great view/location
I don't think the AC was working properly. Our bedding and furniture seemed damp. Beautiful view. Garbage nearby was convenient. Nice big patio. Love the beachy decor.
Manager's Response:  We have had the A/C looked at and everything is working great now.  Thank you for letting us know and we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay.

Beautiful view
Beautiful VIEW! New carpet, comfortable beds, and well stocked kitchen with new appliances- it appears owner is working on updates. The AC unit smelled musty and we had a ceiling leak during the start of our stay. Unit could use new furniture...but all was very functional. We would rent this unit again.

Stay at El Matador, Unit #458
I have stayed at El Matador many times and the staff is great. I have also stayed in this condo before and it was perfect as always. I would recommend to anyone and will definitely be returning. I am now able to come down 2 times a year and would not stay anywhere else.

Returning tenants
We love this unit 458. We have stayed in others; ground floor to end units, 1 bed-2bedr...but this is the best location for views & unit layout. We come down every 6 myths & have found El Matador to be the best by far! Everything is so clean and always enough towels to kitchen items, only thing needed is food,,,lol only thing I wish they included is beach chairs service; we haul our own & it's getting to be hard to do, the beach service is too expensive daily. We are returning in June 2017!! See you then!!

Beach view vacation
Had a great time. Condo was extremely clean and comfortable. Only downside bed was a little hard for our taste. But looking forward to staying with you again.

Memories Revisted
We vacationed at the El Matador for over twenty years as our children grew up. For our 70th birthdays we decided to come back for a few days and found nothing had changed; still the quiet family atmosphere with a great beach and amenities that gave us such wonderful memories. Great view of the Gulf from our room. Hope to be back for 71th!

Great Week on Okaloosa Island
We love the El Matador and go every year for at least 1 week. The only problem was a leak from upstairs. We had to call maintenance and you could see where it had leaked before over the sink, but this time it was coming down the closet doors. Definitely need to get that fixed. Managers Response: Thank you for letting us know about the leak. The leak has been fixed and the ceiling has been repaired.

You will NOT be disappointed
The View was spectacular! This unit was unbelievable, everything you need and then some. My husband had unexpected foot surgery just before we left and was not able to get his feet in the ocean; this unit was just what he needed, he didn't feel like he missed out on a thing. he was able to sit on the balcony and watch everything that was going on and not miss a beat. our only complaint is not having a washer/dryer in the unit; it is a pain to have to go down the by the elevators to do your laundry, having to find quarters to be able to do your laundry, then having to get your laundry before someone else needs the machine; (I encountered an angry woman that thought it was her own personal machines & didn't like my clothes in her way or my intrusion. when I started my laundry there were no signs of anyone being in there or using the machines.) That was just a minor issue, and will not keep us from returning; however, it is a concern. I love how you can look out the front door & windows and see the bay then walk to the balcony and have the ocean!! the sound of the ocean at night is amazing!!! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your unit! We will be returning next year, if not sooner.

Our family had a wonderful vacation. Very relaxing! The unit was very clean and has a homey feel. We rented the same unit last year and could not wait to rent it again this year. The staff was very informative. We like the fact that there is a security guard that is stationed at the entrance and makes the rounds around the complex. Looking forward to 2016.

Amazing view! Great and affordable for a family! Best condo on the block!!
Stunning view! It's the best condo on the block.Fabulous balcony with fan.The owners have put a lot of love into this condo with their beach memorabilia. Kitchen is very well stocked. Layout is great for a family of four. Price is affordable. Condo was clean, well maintained. Everything worked! The decor is dated but this is what makes this condo affordable.

Enjoyed our Stay!
We really enjoyed our stay this week. The condo was perfect. The view was awesome and the weather was perfect as well. This is our fourth time staying at your complex. The condo we had this time was our favorite so far. The staff is always very nice and very helpful. We will see you again next year.

7 Days of Heaven
My two friends and I enjoyed a great stay at El Matador. It was my first time there (one of my friends had stayed there several times before many years ago). We loved the condo's decor; we spent many hours on the balcony with fabulous views; there were plenty of dishes, cookware, and kitchen utensils to use when we didn't eat out. The location was wonderful...right on the beach with the restricted space to our right was great... not too much traffic or too many folks crowding the beach. It was quick and easy to get to all the places we wanted to go to in FWB and Destin. We had a fantastic week. Everything was perfect! Even the weather!
