"Unit 358 is a very nice unit, view is fantastic. Furnishings are very nice and kitchen has everything you need. I would have rated this unit above average except the living room and master bedroom drapes are pretty bad. The first bedroom need room darkening curtains or drapes. Overall a very nice unit. This will be the first unit we check to see if it’s available"

"We have been to El Matador for 14 summers. Bouncing around to different rooms. We have stayed in 358 twice now. The plugs/ lamps in the guest bedroom didn’t work and the refrigerator leaks at the bottom. We are trying a different room next year. I have watched the prices increase each year and with those big jumps I would like to see improvements made as well. We LOVE El Matador and our week there! We will always visit but just like the see the rooms Improve over time and some don’t."

The condo was beautiful and the view from the balcony was incredible. Highly recommend 358 and we will look for this same unit when we come back next time!"

"Upon arrival security and check in staff were very pleasant. Our room was very nice, all was clean and ready for us. We loved that fact that there was a laundry facility just up the hall and a kitchen ready for use with utensils and appliances. Our view was spectacular from the 5th floor. We greatly enjoyed waking early in the morning to have coffee and watch grounds maintenance prepare the pool and the beach. The grounds, pool, and beach were very well maintained. The beach was beautiful, the water was clear, and I love that El Matador is the last condo on the beach. It was amazing to be able to walk down the beach in solitude taking in the sunset. Even though we were the last stop on the beach, dining and activities were still close, no more than a 10-30 min drive depending on where you want to go, and what you want to do. My family and I had a spectacular vacation at a reasonable rate. 10/10 from us. :-)"

"While the inside of our unit was everything we could have hoped for we had some issues with our stay. One the door lock did not work properly and we were locked out/ in a few times. Maintenance came and showed us how to get around it but it was not a fix just a Band-Aid. The elevators were poor. We lost several dollars in the washer and dryer by one or both not working and had to carry laundry to other floors to get it done.

Manager's Response:
Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We have address the door lock issue and have notified the condo association about the elevators and laundry rooms."

"This is the first time that we have rented a condo. We loved it. It was nice to have an ocean view and be able to walk to the ocean without getting in a car. The beds were comfortable. 2 things that could be improved on are the shower doors. They were hard to push and came off the track easily. I had to call my husband to open it for me once. I was afraid of breaking the glass. One of the floor fans kept going up/down in noise. Don't know if it could be a fire hazard or just needed blown out. I was going to tell them about these 2 concerns when I turned in the keys. However, we left on a Sunday and no one was in the office- only a drop key box. I would recommend this condo. It was well worth the price we paid for in the off season."
