"We spent 7 days in 612 at the El Matador and had a wonderful experience. The unit was clean and super comfortable. Staff was very accommodating even changing a burned out light bulb on the porch. The grounds are spectacular and close proximity to a beautiful section of the beach that’s not overcrowded. Washer & dryers are commercial grade and reasonably priced. We plan to stay here again and highly recommend this rental unit."

"Close to beach. Close to pickleball (both onsite and a short drive to Jet Park). Close to restaurants and Public Grocery. Swimming pools were a little small and fairly crowded (a lot of children). Cost was quite reasonable. Light traffic in area. Located beside the Air Force beach, the resort is bounded on west side with chain link and barb wire fencing (seemed a little disconcerting). We enjoyed the public beach located between Fort Walton and Destin which was accessible via a free public park."

"This condo was great! The perfect size and plenty of in-house things such as toilet paper, soap, etc. The condo, however, looks a little dated on the walls and floors. Definitely could use a fresh coat of paint! It could also be a little cleaner! We had some long hair all over the bathroom, but other than that it was very clean! Would stay again!
Manager's Response: Thank you for reviewing your stay. We are sorry to hear that you had a cleaning issue. We have contacted housekeeping regarding this issue."

"My daughter and I stayed here for a week and it was an absolutely fabulous location. A short walk to the beach, loved that we were ground floor (made packing / unpacking and bringing anything in from the car or the beach wagon in very easy!) We were also incredibly close to the heated pool and the hot tub - both of which we really enjoyed. The beach is sensational. The location is tucked up against the air force base which I felt really kept that section of the beach quieter compared to the further down the strip. Just beautiful sand, waves, and sky. The unit itself was perfect for our needs. Just be sure you bring any possible consumable items you could use for your visit - or the Publix and Target aren't too far if you forget anything. The coffee maker uses 8-12 cup cone filters FYI (this was essential for me) ! Paper towels and kleenex were items I hadn't thought to bring either but needed. Lots of sunblock and aloe too! There are plenty of restaurants that you can do take out or delivery from (delivery. com is the service that seems to be most widely used from that location). The staff we interacted with were all very friendly and nice. I have no complaints - the only thing I would "wish" for that isn't available is in-unit laundry, but they do have it available on site. I was pricing condos before we left. It was a wonderful, wonderful location!"

"I absolutely loved Unit 612. The color and decor was updated. The brick wall and high ceilings made it feel very spacious. I am an owner of Unit 255 and only rented because we had too many guests with us and wanted more room so our parents wouldn't have to share a bathroom with us. If I ever get in a bind and again I will definitely book your romantic land cozy little space. I liked being able to walk right out to my car without having to take the elevator. The bed was very comfy and the recliner was so comfy I plan to buy the same brand for myself. The only negatives I could really say was that someone who rents or owns in that building has a dog or cat resulting in front hallway pet odor. It wouldn't stop me from staying there again as my Unit was very clean. Thanks for letting us use your space."

"The room was exactly like the pictures and very comfortable for the week. It was perfect for our family of 3 that included a toddler. I loved the easy access to the heated pool and parking spot. It was a short straight shot walk to the beach. My only complaint was the smell in the room. It smelled like stale cigarette smoke. At times, we could smell people smoking in a nearby condo. It was coming in through the vents or walls. Our clothes smelled funny after a week in the room."

"I was extremely happy with my stay in unit 612. The kitchen was stocked with all necessary dishware, the shower was exquisite, all appliances were top notch. I did not expect such a wonderful condo. The location was a short distance from the beach, on which I was married. The staff went above and beyond their call of duty. I over looked my reservation instructions and didn't know they office closed at a certain time. My husband and I showed up a day early after the office closed. The young man on guard duty went out of his way to call the office attendant to see if she would come and help us. The office attendant turned around from her drive home and helped us book day early. All staff members were very pleasant. I was very pleased with my stay and would love to stay in unit 612 again. Although, I would love to see how nice the rest are as well. I would recommend El Matador to all my friends and family. Thank you for such a wonderful experience."
