"What a great week in Fort Walton Beach. The condo was perfect! It was clean and well equipped. The location provided easy beach access and privacy. We took daily walks on the beach and enjoyed watching sea animals from the nearby pier. The location also allowed us to explore the gulf coasts many small and fun communities. Thank you!"

"This is our 2nd Spring Break at el Matador, in this condo. The resort is perfect for us- 2 pools and the beautiful beach, workout room, tennis/pickleball and basketball give us lots of options. Even so, it doesn't feel 'uppity', everyone is nice and friendly. This condo is great- I appreciate being on the ground floor more than I would want an ocean view. The beds are comfy and the kitchen is well stocked. The only thing missing was dish cloths in the kitchen. Thanks for a great week!"

"We stayed in this condo for a week and loved every minute of it. The place is clean, updated kitchen, comfy beds and a 3 minute walk to the beach! The kitchen is fully stocked with appliances and cook wear. There is a wagon on the back patio with chairs, body boards and other supplies to have lots of fun on the beach. We enjoyed our breakfast sitting outside on the patio and our evenings strolling on the beach or by one of the two pools. I loved that there is so much open beach at this resort. We will be back as soon as we can! I highly recommend this condominium. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!"

"We had a wonderful week. Given how large the property is, and that it was full of Spring Breakers, we were surprised at how uquiet it was, and how it never felt crowded. The common spaces were clean and well cared for. Our condo was comfy and well-supplied. The TV in the living room was hard to work, but the one in the bedroom was easier. We loved being on the ground floor with patio access. We hope to come back!"

"Great vacation condo! Spacious with nice furniture and cute decor. A short walk to the beach, across a lawn with an enclosed pool area. There are wooden stairs down to white sand beaches. The water is so beautiful and clear! The owner left us beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards for the beach which was great. This is the last complex on the end of the beach so you can walk down to the right really far without any buildings and it's almost like a private beach! It's just down the street from great local seafood restaurants. It's only 15 minutes from Destin Harbor, which is really fun. I would recommend a sunset dolphin cruise and renting a car to drive up and down the coast which is beautiful. Would recommend it and plan to come back!"

"My family and I stayed in Unit 113 for 4 days at the end of March/beginning of April. The unit was perfect for our family of 5 (3 kids age 7,5,2). It was so nice to be on the ground floor with kids and have quick, easy access to the beach, as well as have the grassy area just outside the door to play in. We ate a couple meals outside and were able to dry our towels on the hooks. It was great having the wagon and beach toys to use as well. The beds and linens were all comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed to make our meals. Check in and check out went smoothly and we had no issues during our stay. We look forward to coming back to Unit 113!"

"My husband and I stayed in condo 113 for an amazing week. The owner has ensured that the condo is equipped with every amenity such as a fully functional kitchen to a plethora of beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs. There are two pools, one hot tub, and a beautiful white sand beach just a hop, skip, and a jump from the back door of the condo. The community is peaceful and the city has an excellent nightlife and delicious food. I highly recommend this condo rental to anyone who wants a fun, relaxing, and one of kind vacation."

"Looking for a place to spend Labor Day Weekend we rented a condo at El Matador in Fort Walton Beach. What a perfect find. A two bedroom condo on the beach of the Emerald Coast that sleeps 6 was great for us and our two teenage sons. The updates were quite noticeable and the wagon of goodies for the beach was just the icing in our short stay cake. The adjacent beach front gave way to emerald waters, and the beach entry includes a sitting space that overlooks the beach and the one of two swimming pools. Be prepared for some breath taking views of the Gulf sunrises and sunsets. Just a few miles from Destin this will be a beautiful hangout for many years to come. A beautiful property with very friendly and helpful staff enjoyed our stay."

"We had a great time visiting the El Matador again. We did have some issues with the unit. The toilet for the guest room was VERY wobbly, the pantry door did not latch, and the drapery rod fell off the wall in the living room. I think the rod problem was due to faulty installation. The unit did have beach toys and a wagon to transport them to the beach. This was very handy. We owned unit 116 for 20 years but sold it in 2012. We love coming back to visit.
Manager's Response: Thank you for reviewing your stay. We are sorry to hear that you had some issues with your room and will make sure that we take care of these items immediately."
