"The unit was as pictured minus the red chair and different lamps in the living room. When making my decision I read reviews, people complained about water pressure, they said it was corrected. It is not great but it's doable. All in all its a nice unit we were here for the month of October and would rent it again, has everything you need. Needs a few updates painting ect. But for a home away from home it's not bad."

"The location is ideal, the accommodations very nice with one exception… the shower literally dribbles. We actually thought of hating in the kitchen sink. I understand it is the 6th floor and there isn’t a water tank on to of the building (though that would be one fix), but simply installing a pressure tank would remedy much of the problem."

"Nice place located at the end of Santa Rosa Blvd. It’s quiet and family oriented. We really enjoyed our stay. Only thing we had an issue with was the water pressure in the shower, other than that, I would recommend staying here. Beach access was easy, two pools to enjoy, bbq grills to use and so much more."

"Great views and nice unit with a quick cooking convection oven. The sliding glass door is likely the original and very hard to slide. So that could really use an upgrade. The shower design is a single handle for hot and cold. It seemed that you only increased the pressure while increasing the heat of the water. This was fine for me, but my wife didn’t care for the design as she doesn’t like her water too hot, but enjoys more pressure so she simply couldn’t get it right. Especially for washing her long thick hair. Overall I’m sure we’d both agree to stay in this unit again, but not without at least considering trying a different unit. We have stayed at The El Matador a number of times and it really is a great spot with great staff members."

"Unit is somewhat outdated but we were comfortable and it was quiet with a great view of the beach. As other reviewers have mentioned, the biggest drawback is the bathroom - water barely trickles out of the shower-head making it very unpleasant to shower. We will not be staying in this unit again because of this issue.
Manager's Response: We are sorry that you had issues with the unit. We have had a plumber address the water pressure problem and it has been resolved. "

"We felt that even though the condo was nice and the view was amazing. We felt the pressure in the shower was horrible. We also had to go out and buy more toilet paper because two rolls for. Whole week wasn’t enough. We also had to go buy laundry detergent and dryer sheets and gets quarters to wash the towels as five towels again isn’t enough for a whole week. Each guard that was on duty was very nice. We even had to call for maintenance when the quarters got stuck in the washing machine. He came up very quickly and resolved the situation."

"Everything was great but the water pressure was the worst I have ever experienced. Office said it was because I was on the 6th floor and the buildings were built in the 70's. Not buying that. I don't think they want to upgrade. I have been in plenty of older buildings and higher than the 6th floor and did not have this low of water pressure. Otherwise the condo and El Matador is great!"

"This is the second time I have stayed in this unit. My mom booked this unit at the same time she booked hers, but my family stayed in it. This unit is bright, nicely decorated, and I love the counter island in the kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. The mattress could stand to be updated, a few more pillows could be in there as well as a few more hooks in the bathroom to hang wet stuff. But otherwise, we were very happy in this unit. Love the tall patio furniture."

"My family and I stayed in this updated and well-appointed condo from 8/2-8/9/14. This condo complex is well located on the island with no other properties to the west, so the feel was secluded with virtually no beach traffic. The complex is clean and well- maintained and so was the unit. The people who live and visit this area are very friendly and the atmosphere is secure. We loved the close proximity to stores and great restaurants. The furnishings in the unit were very comfortable. The El Matador staff made the check-in and out very simple and quick. We would definitely recommend this unit and complex to our friends and family!"
