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.

El Matador 469

Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014
The unit was great. The view every morning of the ocean was wonderful. The unit was furnished nicely with everything in working order. Would definitely stay again.

Condo cleanliness
Mary Kay S. from Royal Oak, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in April, 2014
Pew rented our condo two years in a row. This year, the cleanliness was MUCH improved.The only thing I see that might need improvement is replacing the carpeting in the bedrooms. Overall, everyone we vacationed with, thought our cono was the best!!

A piece of heaven
A guest from Harahan, LA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2013
We reserve this condo in August, for the past five years. We love it on the sixth floor, the view is spectacular. The condo was remodeled last year and the renovations make this condo a wonderful place to stay.

Cleanliness
Denise K. from Berkley, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
This was our first time renting a condo at El Matador. I loved the condo with one exception. I do not believe the condo was cleaned the way it should be. For a 150.00 cleaning fee, I expect not to see dirt on my feet immediately after my shower on the first night. I expected the shower doors to be cleaned of their soap scum. I will definitely make sure the floors and bathrooms are clean before unpacking next year. Other than that, we loved our stay.

Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor
Hi Denise, I first wanted to let you know that you stayed in unit 467 not 469 at the el matador, and i am so sorry to hear that your unit was not cleaned. You should anytime when you check in and find something is not to your satisfaction, please, please call us and we would have taken cared of that right away, and sent the Housekeeper back up there to clean it. There is no reason for you to be unhappy on your wonderful vacation, and have dirty floors. I apologize about that, and i hope to see you again next year for Spring Break, and we will take this matter to management. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks Chris.

Unit 469
A guest from Arlington Hights, IL does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2013
We like the location of El Matador Condos, unit 469 has a beautiful view but the accommodations we feel could be better in this unit. That is the reason for the low scores regarding the general condition. The master bed is uncomfortable, we also did not have proper bedding, no masterbed blanket and the sheets were very old. The accommodations in the spare bedroom are old as well. Lastly, the unit was not very clean when we arrived.

Booked El Matador rentals thru Alicia Hollis for decades.
Randy R. from Tyler, TX recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in September, 2012
I have always booked rentals at El Matador thru Alicia Hollis since the 80's. Never a problem, always helpful, and promptly takes care of any problem that may arise. Can't ask for better people to work with, especially Chris, the person I usually deal with. El Matador is, I think, the oldest condo on the island, but the best in my opinion. Very well maintained, 24 hour security, and miles of undelevoped beach next door. Lots of roomy lawn space, large main pool next to beach that is spotless, and friendly beach guys that handle chair and umbrella rentals. This is my favorite spot on my favorite beach.

El Matador 469
A guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012
We have stayed at the El Matador many times in the past 30 years in various condos on the property. Splendid beaches and privacy. This particular condo was just not up to the standard of our previous stays. It had spectacular views of the ocean, corner unit close to the beach. The kitchen was ill equipped for cooking, many essentials missing. And the condo was just "not quite clean" enough for our standards. We did cleaning of surfaces and bathrooms before using. Alicia Hollis, Realtor has always been friendly and helpful. We will come back to the El Matador, just not in that particular condo unit and will request thorough cleaning before arrival.

Not so great.
A guest from Bowling Green, KY does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2012
When we arrived, our keys were not in the lock box. Tried to call the "emergency number" as it was after hours. Got no answer. Had to go down to the condos and have the security guard call another # to get an answer. We were met with a grouchy and condescending attitude from the AH rep. Met her down at the office and she checked the lockbox and then went inside and got our keys and then just started making excuses for herself but didn't apologize. The unit was just average and not very clean. You'd think for the amount of money that we spent on this unit that it would have been cleaner and had nicer, more updated furniture. Instead, we had a semi-dirty unit with filthy rugs, dirty bathrooms, and worn out furniture. The unit said it had WiFi but had to again call the AH office to get the password. It's like we had to keep asking and asking to get the services we paid for. Not impressed this time around guys.

Great overall stay - nice unit - perfect views.
Mary Jo W. from Dewitt, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2012
The unit and view were enjoyable.The modem needs a different cord or positioning to be able to effectively use a laptop computer - sitting at the kitchen table. There is no chair sitting right next to the table with the modem on it. It was awkward to hook up to - and we were reported as having tangled their cords up - just trying to figure out a position that would work well.The countertops were beautiful - but it is difficult to visibly see spots and food residue on them because they are so dark. This is good and bad. We were accused of leaving the counter tops sticky and I had brought my own cleaning wipes and used them often on that countertop - but unless you run your fingers over it - you miss sticky spots. You can't see them - but you can feel them.I did not like being scolded by Alicia and being told how trashy we left the place and how inconvenienced the cleaning crew was with nit-picky things. They are paid to clean and that was a normal level of cleaning.
