Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Looking for Paradise? Here it is at the El Matador! Has to be the most sought of family vacation resort on the Emerald Coast. A secluded condominium nestled between the beautiful white sand dunes and the sparkling Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

El Matador is truly a beach resort. Just two miles down Santa Rosa Blvd at the end of the Island you will find us – secluded but still just a few minutes to all the amenities that Destin and Fort Walton Beach have to offer. Just six miles down Hwy. 98 you can enjoy Destin – “ The Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village” – charter a private trip or take the kids out on a group boat and catch dinner. While in Destin enjoy fine restaurants, shopping, and golfing on some of the best golf courses in the Panhandle of Florida. Hard to believe that you might need a day off from the beach but if you do take the family to Big Kahunas Water Park in the center of old Destin. Much more than just a water park… it’s a day of fun!

Back at the El Matador enjoy the large grass areas between our buildings just right for family fun and games. With two pools, his and her whirlpool, and saunas just right for your tired muscles after a game of tennis on one of our courts, or in our fitness center. We are located at the end of Okaloosa Island a small barrier Island between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. This gated community with thirteen miles of undeveloped beaches to the west is sure to have you longing to return.

Loved the location. The bed was soooo comfortable. Every thing was updated. Only complaint was the floors were dirty, including the carpets and the upholstery on the chairs needs cleaned. Overall, we will definitely stay in this unit again.

Good accommadations, on the beach. Room was too close to the pool for me, but it was better than overlooking the parking lot.

Reviewer Comments:

We have stayed in this property previously, so we knew it was nicely decorated and in a good location. Our previous experiences were good. This year, we were disappointed in the general lack of cleanliness (the kitchen sink was full of crumbs and who knows what else when we arrived and the kitchen floor was not clean. Bed linens were frayed and elastic on fitted sheet was non existent. We did appreciate the prompt replacement when our coffee maker quit working during the week.

Reviewer Comments:

We loved the location and the condo. The condo was tastefully decorated and comfortable. My only complaint is that you could feel the springs in the mattress (needs replacing). Everyone we met while staying there was extremely nice. Loved that there was a gate with a guard on duty. Landscape and pool very nice and clean. I am very picky and would have given it an all 5 star rating if it wasn't for the mattress and while the condo wasn't dirty it wasn't spotless either (floors could have been cleaner).
