"This was the first time staying at El Matador. We stayed in unit 428. It was exactly as described. I love that it was so close to the beach. The lady in the office was so nice and helpful when I had any questions. Customer service was the best. That makes a difference when you are away from home. The grounds was always kept clean. Even though the complex was an older one the upkeep was great. We will be staying here again."

"If you're looking for a fancy expensive condo go down to Destin and visit the emerald Grand. If you're looking for a clean comfortable room with a cozy view away from all the riffraff, there is no beating El Matador condominiums. We've been coming for 13 years and we continue our stay either in building three or four and we are never disappointed."

"We really enjoyed this condo. Very clean, well-stocked kitchen. Enough room for 5 adults. We enjoyed the amazing views from our balcony, just steps from both the pool and the ocean. The location of the condo is away from the hustle and bustle of Destin, so in a quieter area. There were five beach chairs in the balcony closet which were a big plus! We had one maintenance call for a burnt out lightbulb. The response was very quick and friendly service. We would definitely consider staying in this same condo if back in the area!"

"It’s a beautiful location! The beach view is AMAZING! The beach is not crowded at all! The condo itself is outdated! It could definitely use some TLC! The outdoor patio chairs weren’t in the best condition. The kitchen lacked on having enough dishes or pots and pans to cook with. A quick trip to Walmart did the trick!;) I prefer to have a washer and dryer in my condo, when I’m on vacation. It was only a few doors down from the condo. It was a hassle to carry everything back and forth! Overall the property is absolutely GORGEOUS! The condo was nice but it could definitely use some updating and a good cleaning!"

"The view from the condo was awesome. The porch could have used a couple more chairs so other family members could have enjoyed their morning coffee watching the dolphins. The rooms and furnishings were fine, just the master bath was a bit cramped, but made due. It’s only a little walk to the condos pool and beach. Our family had a wonderful time there, this was our second time to El Matador condos."

"We enjoyed our stay in 428. The view was great and the accommodations up to date. This condo has been well maintained. It had everything we needed including a kitchen filled with all the pots/pan/utensils needed to do some real cooking which we did. We appreciated the outside tables and chairs to enjoy the view. Our son and daughter used the second bedroom and the pull out coach. All the beds were comfortable. The only suggestion would be replacing the toilet in the master bathroom. The shower/toilet area is very cramped and hence it is difficult to use the older, lower toilet. A new higher, water efficient toilet would be welcomed addition. The staff should be clear on phone numbers. We had to change condos because of the crane/roof work. There were three phone calls concerning this BUT to our home phone. I had called the office with our cell numbers but for some reason those numbers were never used. Cell numbers should be requested for all guests if they have them. Our best, Grace Hedemann Hane and Fred Miller"

"Needs a few minor repairs. Door knob to front door is loose. Blinds in second bedroom are broken. Tub in hall bathroom doesn't drain well. Could use a new shower head in master bath and a new mattress in second bedroom. We have been coming here since 2002. Stayed in this unit many times and will continue too. First time we have ever felt it could use some attention. Had a great time. See y'all next year."

The master bedroom mattress was very comfortable. The sofa in the living room leans forward for some reason. The carpet in the living room is pretty dirty. Overall the unit is very nice and the view is amazing! The staff at El matador is always exceptional! This was our second year at Elmatador and most of us have already booked for next year!"

"We arrived just ahead of a tropical storm for our vacation. Did not matter, the condo was AMAZING, the views were breathtaking from the balcony. They closed the ocean for a few days due to rio current but the pool and grounds as always were immaculate and made sure the storm didn't ruin our vacation. This is our 2nd as a big family group (5 adults one child) down to El Matador and as we were leaving we were already planning for the summer of 2019. The condo itself (428) was absolutely perfect and held our larger group just fine. Really appreciated the owners having a lot of beach gear already there so our daughter and the rest of us had chairs, and more then enough toys to play on the beach and in the ivean (when we were allowed). Honestly was the perfect vacation at the perfect resort and will be back in 2019 hopefully with a BIGGER group, and even if not a bigger group our smaller family group will be back and back in this exact condo. THANK YOU TO THE STAFF OF EL MATADOR AND THE OWNERS OF 428 FOR HELPING US MAKE MEMORIES OF A LIFETIME WITH OUR DAUGHTER AND FAMILY."

"The unit was comfortable and we enjoyed the two king beds vs two twins. Did have a couple of interruptions with a/c unit repairs and reclining chair repairs. Also the fridge runs excessively which seems to result in heat on the front division between the freezer and refrigerator door. This (?) caused our food to freeze a couple times toward the back of the fridge but not always. Loved the patio and furniture. Nice fluffy linens and a fairly well stocked kitchen compared to previous units in past years."
