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.

Property Reviews 
Acceptable for Price
A guest from Zachary, LA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in July, 2015
Overall, we were happy with the visit for the price we paid. The condo was nice and clean, and updated. Could not hear neighbors above or next to you, so that was really nice. The pool and grounds were very very nice. We enjoyed the depth of the swimming pool since most are shallow these days. The bedding in the master room was kind of gross, so we removed it. The blinds in the master room also are terrible. If you don't want to wake up to sunlight at 6:30am plan to bring curtains. The lock on the front door was terrible. Only one of the keys worked and even then there was no way to actually work the lock with one hand. The worst part was the sea grass. I had never heard of the sea grass there, but apparently this is an ongoing issue in Ft. Walton. We could not swim, because most of the time there were jellyfish in this sea grass. After looking at pictures, doing a little research, this seems to be the norm. The owners even have art work on the walls of Ft. Walton Beach sea grass. So, be prepared to travel to Destin Beaches!! Because of this, we will not be staying at the El Matador again.

not what i expected
Steve G. from St. Louise, MO does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015
property is great. have stayed at El Matador many times. however,first time dealing w/Alicia Hollis.needed someone out at least three times to attend to things. couch was dirty,not even a vacuum to clean and when you sat on it you fell into the middle. kitchen did not have essential items necessary(utensils,only 1 bowl for cereal,salads). blinds in master bedroom wouldn't close. when they fixed them they wouldn't open. sinks in both bathrooms leaked. some things weren't fixed until thursday and we were leaving on saturday morning. we even had plaster fall from the ceiling in the guest bedroom! when i asked Alicia about some compensation there were no questions asked,NO. i will come back to El Matador but not through Alicia Hollis!

Property Manager Response:
Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
This guest called every day with a complaint. After sending maintenance for 3 days, incurring three bills for owner, I went to see the tenant. First I had heard that there was only 1 cereal/soup
bowl ( I counted 6 bowls). His idea of necessary utensils was not having a large barbeque set in case he wanted to grill. The owner above this condo was working on his floor and yes, banging
on the floor made plaster fall from the ceiling but until the hammering was stopped, which it was, we could do nothing about the ceiling. Tenants who occupied condo the week before and the
week after this guest was in condo gave it a very good review. The sinks did leak but maintenance took care of this and I took guest a set of clean towels. It was unfortunate that the sinks
chose to leak and the owner above decided to work on his condo at this time, which was out of our control. This condo is rented for most of July and I look forward to good reviews from future
tenants. We are in the business of doing all we can to make our tenants vacation a memorable one.

Great Stay, Beautiful Beaches! Nice Condo...
Timothy O. from Jackson, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014
The white sand beach is incredible, water was Perfect! Area of Okoloosa island was very quiet, which we liked, and all the excitement was only 5-10 minutes down the road. The El Matador complex is nice, just a bit older than all the rest. But the condo was very clean and did have a nice little view of the gulf. The rental process was very simple with no issues at all, we will return again! :-) :-) :-)

EM238
A guest from Cleveland, TN recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014
A month or so before our trip we decided to spend a week in the Destin/Fort Walton beach area on the sunny Emerald Coast. From the time we booked throughout our stay we had nothing but a good experience. In fact, another couple, who are friends of ours, decided to drive over from New Orleans and finish out their vacation at the El Matador too (they stayed in another condo at the resort). The room was clean and well supplied. The staff from the realty/rental office was friendly and helpful. And the beach was very family friendly. We spent the days in the pools or on the beach. Our kids made friends and played with them on the white sand beach. In the evenings we ate way too much at the great area restaurants. Overall, a great quick get away!!! We will be back!!

Great Rental for the price!!
Reviewed by: Sarah H. recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in June, 2014
This was a wonderful unit! Very clean and comfortable. Check - in and check - out was very simple, and communication with rental agent was easy. The only problem was the view from the was facing another building, but the view from the front porch was lovely and open! You won't find a better deal on Okaloosa Island!
