The condo was fantastic! perfect size for the amount of time that we were here, well equipped, beautiful view of the beach plus not a bad walk to the beach it was great!
My daughter, 4 grandsons and I stayed here. The rooms were nice and clean and there plenty of towels for all. The view was great from our balcony .
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to El Matador. The condo was very clean and the kitchen was nicely equipped for a rental. We loved that the rental came with beach chairs and an umbrella to bring to the beach. We have stayed where there was beach service included in the past and with those available with this unit, we never missed the beach service. This was actually our 2nd stay at this condo and will return for a 3rd!
El Matador Unit 242 provided our family with the perfect place to relax and enjoy our stay in the Fort Walton Beach. The unit was just as we had hoped and was exactly like the photos on the site. The condo was beautifully decorated and provided a fully-stocked kitchen in which you can prepare meals during your stay. We were impressed with the cleanliness and the owner provided books, board games and movies to enjoy during our stay. Two boardwalks provide private access to the beach from the condo complex and the complex is complete with two pools to enjoy. Our family was able to enjoy an off-shore fishing trip, shopping in the nearby Destin outlet mall and enjoyed eating at several seafood restaurants including two of our favorites - Stewby's and The Back Porch. It was a restful and enjoyable trip. Our family highly recommends the unit and hope to enjoy it again in the future.
My family and I stayed 5 days at the el matador our trip was very nice. The condo was clean and everyone was so friendly the view was amazing. I would stay here again.
I booked this condo because of location, price, and photos. It is located at the El Matador resort, which is a little older than some of the others but it is located at the end of the strip of resorts. It is very quiet, peaceful, and extremely well-run. There are miles of beach to the west that are totally private and can be walked and walked for hours. This particular condo is completely remodeled and EVERYTHING was comfortable...the beds, the couches, the chairs, the dining set, etc. Wonderful! The price was VERY reasonable for what we got. So spacious and I used the amenities; the pool, the whirlpool, the beach service, and the sauna. The staff were friendly and helpful. The condo looked just like the photos - very attractive - and the kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, pans, skillets, serving dishes and storage containers. Glass glasses, not plastic. So nice. Even wine glasses. I had a great time and will certainly try to reschedule to come to this condo again!
I took my 2 boys 9 & 11 on vacation from Illinois to this beautiful Florida condo. We had a wonderful time enjoying the beach and pool and this lovely condo. It was so well stocked, EVERYTHING we could even think of needing was already there. The beach service was nice to have and we enjoyed it fully!! This condo lacks NOTHING amazing views, well stocked, great neighbors!! We will be booking again in late winter!!
