Above Average
Loved our experience at El Matador! Check in and check out were an easy process. The property was well maintained, quiet and peaceful. The guys at the security booth were really nice and the ladies at the front desk too. Our unit was nice, when we entered, it smelled clean and you could tell it was just thoroughly cleaned. The dishwasher did not clean the dishes. Ran it twice and still had to hand wash them. We will definitely be back!

Always a great experience at the El Matador.
My first stay at the El Matador was in 1991 and I've been hooked ever since. I always stay here when I'm in Fort Walton Beach on vacation (approx 20 stays over the years). The grounds, the buildings, the units, and the beach are always top notch. The staff is excellent and very helpful with any questions you may have.

We will definitely stay here again if we get the opportunity to come back to Ft Walton. Our entire softball team had an amazing time and loved each of the rooms. Ours of course was the best. Thank you so much for the pleasant room. The memories we made will last a lifetime. Thank you

We keep coming back!
My family just loves staying at the El Matador. This was our fourth year having our family vacation in Ft Walton and our fourth year staying at the El Matador. You guys never disappoint and we have no plans to stay anywhere else! In fact, we are trying to figure out a way to stay twice a year! Best, The Beckum family (Joel, Sarah and Isaac)

This was our first visit to El Matador and we found it to be a wonderful experience. Our accommodations were great and we loved the location at the end of the row of all the other lodgings. There was less traffic and the location was quieter, The view of the Sound was great and just a short walk to the beach. The beach was fantastic and we spent part of everyday there. The kids also really enjoyed the pool. We hope to return to El Matador again and would recommend it to others. Thank you.

We enjoyed our stay. The only problem was after staying 3 nights we had to go buy toilet paper because we ran out with 6 people in our condo. You should have housekeeping check for things like that when it's more than a 2 night stay. The air conditioner could have been better. We were all warm when we tried to sleep. But all in all we had a wonderful time and hope to be back again!
Manager's Response:
Thank you for reviewing your stay. Amenities such as toilet paper, soap and garbage bags are put in the unit as a starter supply until you can get to the store.  They are not provided for you whole stay.

Updates need
We enjoyed our stay. Your staff was very pleasant and friendly. The only thing I would recommend would the bathrooms and kitchen could be updated.

Nice Quiet location
Beautiful area, peaceful view from balcony. When we arrived, there was an air conditioner repairman there, and he left his tools in the tub, causing a greasy, dirty mess. The staff cleaned it immediately. Twice staff popped in to check the air, both times with no notice, but it wasn't a big deal. The parking lot guard was not nice to my sister, who was staying in another resort. We made arrangements for them to come to our parking lot for to get together for the evening. To us, the guard was nice and accommodating. An hour later, when my sister arrived, he said he had no notice of her visit and gave her a hard time. Other than that, the location is quiet, beautiful and CLEAN! The lobby staff were very helpful, as my son asked for a basketball daily. We would consider staying again.

Great time
Been coming to El Matador for 23 years and staying in #568 for the past 7 years. Great condo, well furnished, and Bldg#5 is quiet with great sunset views off the back deck.

Better than Hotel
Room was a little outdated in decor. Needs a little renovation. But I like that it's clean and more spacious than a Hotel. Will consider this place again for the next Destin Trip!

Great Stay
We had a great time in this condo. It was clean and well maintained. The rules set are direct and enforced for everyone to follow. I certainly will stay again in this condo and will recommend to family and friends.

Loved it!
Extremely enjoyable experience. I would definitely recommend staying there. I have been coming to the area every summer for the last several years and this is without a doubt the best place we have stayed. El Matador is to be commended on there staff. They were all very helpful, professional, and just pleasant. My only complaints would be that the refrigerator was turned down to low and froze stuff on the top shelf, the WiFi had to be reset often, and the vertical blinds were missing a couple of slats. Not a big deal. Looking forward to staying there again next year.

Great Experience!
We had 6 adults staying in the 2 bedroom condo! There was plenty of room and kitchen space and it never felt cramped! We really enjoyed the vacation rental and proximity to the beach! The place was very clean and definitely provided us with what we needed and an overall great experience! Thanks!

Overall very pleased
Condo was nice and love the location. Would prefer washer and dryer in condo room. Only real gripe is the Internet. Router either needs to be reconfigured or replaced. Had to power cycle it multiple times a day for it to give an IP address.
