"Great views, bad window blinds and one slider door not working. “Vintage” kitchen cabinets need to go. Toilets functional but ancient. One shower only connects to two toilets. Clean and comfortable. “Ghetto fabulous”. Best beach ever though!"

"Dishwasher was broke and repair man came 3 times to look at and fix. The water pressure was so low wish it was stronger. Loved the location. Would pick a more updated unit next time. Pool and beach are lovely and well maintained. Guest service was very nice and helpful with questions.
Manager's Response: Thank you for the review. We are very sorry that you were inconvenienced during your stay because of the dishwasher. It has been repaired. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the pool and beach and hope that we have the pleasure of providing your accommodations the next time you visit our area."

"Very easy check in, even with us arriving late on a Sunday. Very helpful staff and property guard. Condo is on the 5th floor of building 4 and had an excellent view of the larger pool and the beach. Condo was clean and well maintained. Some stains on the carpet and larger appliances are a bit dated, but still work well! Beds were comfortable, great view. Be prepared for the sun out your window in the master bedroom in the morning as the windows face east (forgot to close the blinds a couple days) ! Balcony is large and includes chairs. My 2 kids (11 and 7) absolutely loved their room and we enjoyed the large amount of storage space for clothing and food/items. Property management is very attentive. Previous inspection prior to our check in noted a leaking garbage disposal and reached out on day 1 to have it checked out again. Maintenance person was very attentive. Management reached out again the following day to confirm disposal was not leaking. Amazing staff! Pools are well maintained and lots of seating around both. Easy access to beach and rentable chairs with umbrella are available. Resort is at the end of the strip adjacent to the dunes, which results in less people on the beach. Absolutely loved it! Thank you for a great stay and we will be back!"

"Beautiful beach themed condo! Wake up to a beautiful sunrise and walk out on the patio for a cup of coffee with the waves and an ocean view. Clean and spacious for the 4 of us. My only issue was getting the check in key for late check in. The lock was stuck and I couldn’t get the overnight drop box open. The security guard did not know the code and the after hour number went straight to voicemail. Luckily my mom was able to get the lock unjammed and we got the key. Property management didn’t return our call until 9am the next morning. Overall, the condo was wonderful and we enjoyed our stay. We will try to get there before late check in next time! Will definitely be returning in the near future."

Hot tub and sauna were very nice and clean. Beach front was outstanding. Staff on site were all very friendly and accommodating."

Beautiful view from the Balcony (would have been nice to have some higher chairs or Bar Stools to see over the railing easier at the beautiful beach and Ocean). The Team at the Front Desk were very helpful all week and Security Team was also very Friendly! Will definitely come stay again at the El Matador! THANKS for a great Experience!"

"This is our second stay at El Matador. The room was great. The beach even better. Love that your the last condos on the island, which means theres like 27 miles of beach that, being owned by the Air Force, doesn't have shoulder to shoulder tourist. We always had our own “private” beach. Just minutes from Destin, but a lot cheaper with less people you've got the perfect spot. We've talked about going to other places, ie Gulf shores, Panama City, but I asked my wife “Why risk it? We know we're going to have a great time at the El Matador”. We look forward to many return trips."

"My family spent a week at El Matador and enjoyed ourselves. The staff was wonderful, they had been very helpful during the weeks before our arrival and once we got there very nice as well. We had an issue with our shower head and once we told them about it, it was fixed immediately. I was a little disappointed in the décor of the condo. VERY dated with furnishings. The bathrooms still have avocado green sinks and toilets. Other than that can't complain. Great week."

"Staff were great to work with. We loved the location, having no condo buildings to the right of us - just open beach. The only inconvenience was the laundry. We have never rented a unit without a washer and dryer. Although the coin machines were on the floor unit, it was not accommodating as you had to pay and leave your unit to do laundry."
