Looking for Paradise? Here it is at the El Matador! Has to be the most sought of family vacation resort on the Emerald Coast. A secluded condominium nestled between the beautiful white sand dunes and the sparkling Emerald Waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

El Matador is truly a beach resort. Just two miles down Santa Rosa Blvd at the end of the Island you will find us ? secluded but still just a few minutes to all the amenities that Destin and Fort Walton Beach have to offer. Just six miles down Hwy. 98 you can enjoy Destin ? ? The Worlds Luckiest Fishing Village? ? charter a private trip or take the kids out on a group boat and catch dinner. While in Destin enjoy fine restaurants, shopping, and golfing on some of the best golf courses in the Panhandle of Florida. Hard to believe that you might need a day off from the beach but if you do take the family to Big Kahunas Water Park in the center of old Destin. Much more than just a water park? it?s a day of fun!

Back at the El Matador enjoy the large grass areas between our buildings just right for family fun and games. With two pools, his and her whirlpool, and saunas just right for your tired muscles after a game of tennis on one of our courts, or in our fitness center. We are located at the end of Okaloosa Island a small barrier Island between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. This gated community with thirteen miles of undeveloped beaches to the west is sure to have you longing to return.

The commode seat in the guest bathroom needs to be replaced. That was just a minor thing and we were very happy with our stay. We mentioned the seat only fyi. Thank you or a wonderful week with our new grandson.

Fantastic Stay in Fort Walton
Kathy Y. from Morrow, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013
Our stay was a last minute decision. I was looking for something that was available on the beach for my family and I was so lucky to fine unit #440 at the El Matador. Perfect weather, beautiful blue water and white sand. Thanks for making the Young family feel welcome on such short notice. We have already talked about coming back again next year!

Our Recent Stay in El Matador, 440
Lisa E. from Murfreesboro, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in July, 2013
This stay was our second stay in this condo. Larry, the owner, was easy to get in touch with and responded quickly to my email. Unfortunately, our vacation was during the week of July 1, and it rained non-stop every day but one. The master bed is so comfortable! For some reason the air conditioning was not working the last night, but we couldn't reach anyone at the office because it was Sunday. But as we were driving out of the El Matador's gates on our last morning, the sun was shining brightly.

So-So
A guest from Washington, IN does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013
We where ok with this for the price. I'm glad we didn't pay full price.Didn't have any paper towels. They didn't leave but one extra big trash bag. The condo need's updated totally inside and out. The grounds was well taken care of. Was not told how to check out. We always stay in Detsin area and that is where we will stay from now on. They never cleaned the beach here and in Detsin they clean it nightly.

Not a good experience
Lorna R. from Lloyd Minster, Alberta does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 15 days in January, 2013
We have no complaints with how things were handled by the realestate company. All problems were dealt with as soon as they arose but we found we were unable to leave the first week due to waiting for or being around for service people. Carpets were dirty when we moved in. There were dirty fingerprints around door knobs and light plates and it could have used a good cleaning in those areas instead of just surface cleaning to make the place look good when moved in, it wasnt very clean at all.Besides getting very sick from the mold we lost a week of our holiday while we lived there unable to enjoy it because of having to stay there waiting for service people to come and go, No restitution was ever made or offered.

Thought it was worth a shot
James T. from Hurricane, WV does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012
We spent a week at the condo and could not believe the poor condition of many of the components of the condo. The dishwasher is old, rusted and works inadequately. There are large cracks in the walls and several of the windows contains glass where large pieces have been put back together with caulk. The vertical blinds were broken and the linens were stained. Do not be fooled by the pictures of the gulf...you have to go to the balcony and look 90 degrees to the right. Laundry facilities were an old coin op washer and dryer shared by everyone on the floor. While the ad states there is free Wi-Fi, it is a secured connection/password protected. Despite asking twice, that password was never provided to us but rather we were informed that no password existed...that is incorrect and our experience suffered further. We will not return.

A Wonderful Vacation
Admir D. from The Colony, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
It was fun and nice. We can't wait to come back. The room was nice, comfortable, and not classy or fancy. That's fine because we were barely there and busy on the beach the whole week having fun!

Our experience at El Matador
A guest from Rockford, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2012
This was our first experience with the Ft.Walton/Destin area. We enjoyed the area very much. The El Matador is showing its age, but is quite well kept. Our condo was well stocked but could use some updating. Very comfortable bed. The second bedroom needs more light as it does not get natural light so seems a little cavelike. We would have brought our own beach chairs, but were led to believe that there were some there to use. They could be rented, but that would be prohibitive for 5 weeks. The pools were always very clean although quite cold. We enjoyed some nice day trips and loved the beach. The condo was quite clean but did have to do some cleaning when we arrived. Would definitely recommend the property.
