"This was our 2nd year at El Matador and once again we enjoyed our stay. The facilities and grounds are well maintained. The complex is located in a quiet area but still a close drive to activities and restaurants. The pools and beach were not crowded and the water was beautiful. The larger pool by the ocean is not heated and there are no outdoor hot tubs. Unit 238 was very clean and updated. The kitchen had a good selection of pans, dishes and utensils and was very open. The dining room table was small and there was not a lot of seating in the living room but it worked out perfect for our family of three. The only downside was that there were no lamps in the living room. We kept the kitchen and dining room lights on but it was still darker than we would have liked. The master bed was very comfortable but I don't believe it was King Size as listed in the room description when booking. Building 2 is not directly on the ocean but there was still get a good view from the balcony."

"The room was clean and most areas updated with bright beachy colors! The grounds are kept very well maintained for the age of the condos. The living area could use a lamp as there are no ceiling lights on that side of the living/dining space. I just moved one out of the bedroom during my stay. Have stayed at the El Matador many times and will be back!"

"I have stayed at the El Matador for 4-5 years now. But this year was very disappointed with the unit I stayed in this year. Shower door keep falling off, the a/c unit would not keep the unit cool, the stove took a long time to preheat, the microwave needs to be updated. The staff in the front office was very helpful and some of the outside staff was helpful. The El Matador is a great place to stay and all the other units was great but unit 238 really needs work!"

"Kitchen had been updated nice appliances - other than that unit is very dated - roll out and love seat are worn out couldn't sit on the roll out without the frame sticking you. Bed in rear bedroom had no box springs very uncomfortable and low to the floor. Both beds were small maybe full at best not queens."

"Wonderful, clean unit full of amenities needed. We had a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, Coffee pot, cutlery, plates and anything needed for cooking. They also provided towels and soap. This unit was in building 2 which is not “right on the beach” but we had a nice view from the balcony. No complaints but I think the only thing that would’ve made it better would be better chairs on the balcony. Ours was broken so we didn’t want to sit in it. Luckily we brought our own. Thank you for the wonderful stay!"

"We loved staying at El Matador. It was our 1st time and the location and grounds are amazing! We liked the unit except it needs more sitting spaces in living room. We're very rarely in the room, so that was ok with us. Will definitely be back!"

"The owners need to invest in new furniture for the living room. The condo is supposed to host 6 but only a 3 person couch in this area with no chairs. Needs updated silverware, some Rubbermaid to put food in for the beach and a blanket for the fold out sofa. The shower door needs some oil or something it was way hard to shut. Overall it was fine but compared to other condos in same complex needs some updating!"

"We go on vacation in Destin every year and this was the least favorite place we have stayed. The room was dirty which could be different for someone else. The cleaner could have been having a bad day. The location wasn't as good as I thought (long walk to the Beach). This is the first time we didn't have a washer/dryer in the room and they were always in use since there was only one per floor. The elevator wasn't working. Everything about the complex was outdated. Even the hose/shower to rinse off after the beach was broke. All in all it wasn't terrible and we had a good time but we have stayed at much nicer complexes for the same and even less money. We had to change our vacation dates last minute and tried something new and I don't think we will stay here again. Not terrible but far from great!"
