This is our fourth trip to El Matador and 3rd time staying in 562. We love it here. Building 5 is quiet and clean. Our room is comfortable. The view on the balcony is so relaxing and the walk to the beach is simple. Everyone is very friendly. We never have issues with noise.

Our vacation at the El Matador Unit 562
Unit 562 at the El Matador complex is the ultimate relaxing getaway. It has all the comforts of home, including a fully stocked kitchen and comfy recliners! I love to sit on the balcony with a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sun come up over the bay. The pools and the sauna are amazing, and the beach is easily accessible from every building in the complex. The management is really top notch, and even the security personnel are a real pleasure to deal with. We love it here - we can't wait for our next visit!

Will stay here again
We stayed in 562 building 5 and loved loved our condo. The kitchen had everything you needed. The temperature was great in the rooms. The pool near by was great and we used the BBQ Grill near our building. We definitely will stay here again. Security and front desk were amazing. We were close to the Harbor Walk and far enough to feel the relaxation of our little secluded beach. It felt secluded. We loved everything about this place.

Excellent place for our baby's first time at the beach
This was a great condo that will not disappoint. The condo is very well furnished and decorated. The condo is very spacious for our one year old to walk/crawl around. The place is very clean and it seems that they stay on top of the small details. The pool is conveniently close to the condo. The beach has plenty of room as the condo sits at the end of the condo strip making the impression of an endless beach side. For our son's first beach vacation we could not have pick anything more perfect than this condo.

Our stay was perfect. Room very comfortable and met all needs. Great location. Great views. Only thing I would change...move board on tennis court to other side so balls aren't lost when they go over fence!
Jun 2016
Everything was wonderful the only thing I dislike is no refunds or cancelations if an emergency were to happen. Other than that we all enjoyed our stay at the El Matador.
May 2016

Family getaway & cheer competition
I loved this condo. My family and I were in town for my daughter's cheer competition. Since it was the same weekend that my kids spring break started we decided to stay the week. This was the first time that we had ever been to Florida. I loved how close everything was and everything was very easy to locate. I loved the layout of the unit. Everything was very nice. One of my son's favorite thing was, how the tub water ran in the master bath. It has all the amenities of home. I didn't need to worry about bringing any kitchen items with me. I loved being able to stand at the front door with a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sunrise, the balcony at night was a wonderful place to sit with a cup of wine and watch the sunset. It was so relaxing and peaceful. We even went a head and my daughter's birthday party, at the pool, while we were there and all of her cheer friends were there. My family and I are already counting down the days until next year. They staff was wonderful. Very helpful with any questions. I will be highly recommending El Matador to anyone I know that will be coming to the area.

Great Property
The property was much larger than I expected. The property managers were friendly and the entire place was well maintained and very clean. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back.
Apr 2016
Thank you from the Mancha Family
The unit was exactly as shown on your website. Next time, we will probably choose a building closer to the beach but other than that, everything went very well.

Perfect Stay
The stay was very accommodating, very clean and well stocked with the all basics, plus some. Sheets, blankets, towels, dishes (from pots and pans to crockpot or steamer to cups, plates, silverware, etc). The view is amazing! From the front door you can see the ocean, from the private balcony you have a lovely bay view, and you can even see planes lifting up from the air force area. We have family and friends in Destin, Fort Walton, and Crestview, so we we're the "meeting place" for beach time. Easy walk to the beach or pools. Also, staying in a gated community area was very reassuring as we left our beach things in the back of the truck without a worry or problem. Staff was polite and friendly. Thanks for the perfect stay! We'll be back!
Jul 2015
Would stay again and tell friends about this place. Very nice and well secured.

Relaxing vacation
I was very skeptical about this trip. I didn't realize that there were 5 buildings to the resort until about a week before our trip. Looking at the picture, if you will be in building 5, it seems like you need to ride your car to go to the beach. I called the morning of our check in to ask what building we'll be staying in and of course it was building 5. I asked the lady if we need to ride the car to get to the beach because it looks too far from the picture. She told me that it's not that far- about 75 yards is what I was told. She was right! It wasn't too far of a walk! The building is old but it was well-maintained. Room 562 was very cozy. It had everything we needed. We had a great view of the bay. Very relaxing and quiet resort. My husband's only complaint was that there were no good restaurants nearby. We drive to Destin which is not but 5 miles away. We enjoyed it! We will come back! Highly recommended!

The price is right, location is awesome and Kitchen is Bonus-
The place was clean and had a great view. The ocean was across the parking lot and the Coast Center was 2 miles down the road. Publix right over the bridge to allow our own cooking and to save money while jumping in ocean and playing basketball.

El Matador Undit 562
This unit was quite comfortable and the kitchen was very well equipped. We had every thing we needed to prepare our meals when we chose to "eat in". We sat on the sixth floor balcony and enjoyed the privacy and beautiful views of the intra coastal waterway by day and night views of Fort Walton. The staff was fabulous and we will absolutely stay here again.
