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.

"January condo 343
Wonderful time, beautiful view, sunsets from the balcony were unbelievably stunning, our only complaint is the outdated lazy boy in the living room and a couch with no support. The kitchen was nice to cook in, however it too is outdated. Overall experience was relaxing and walks along the beach very enjoyable!

"Needs cleaning and maintenance
Great location, complex well maintained and the view was great. I would stay at this complex again but not in this unit. Management staff was responsive to concerns."

"Great Vacaation Greaat Locattion
Our condo had an awesome view of the Gulf. The condo is spacious and neat. The resort is located at the end of Okaloosa Island and presents a quiet experience but with many anemities nearby."

"El Matador 344
Great location and fairly decent unit. However the bathrooms are from 1974 and need some serious work. Also the master closet looks like an old shower and smells like one. We would not recommend this unit to anyone until those problems are fixed."

"Nice Stay
Excellent view from this unit. One can look out and down the beach. The unit overall is in good condition. The living room furniture seems to have been updated. The kitchen was well equipped. I think the Master bed can be updated though - it was hard but I did sleep ok. "

"Always love coming to El Matador
I've been vacating at El Matador since I was ten. Now I bring my husband & kids down. We stayed in unit #343 this year & although we weren't crazy about the tile throughout & the master bed was very hard, our week was well spent on the beach & at the pool with great weather. We've stayed in a lot of different units & different buildings. Some units are just more family friendly & cozy than others. "

"Great condo. Great location
We had a really relaxing vacation as a family in a low key complex with GREAT amenities. If we came back to fort walton, we would definitely stay at el matador."

"DBunn_El Matador
Room was pretty well up to date with the exception of the small toilets and the large shower that has been converted to a walk in closet which had a damp smell to it."

"Get A Way with friends
Nice resort to be in for relaxing and getting together with friends. The use of the community room made it easy to have a meeting place to relax and get together in quiet surroundings."

"On the Gulf
We had a great, relaxing time in a great condo on the Gulf. "

"El Matador 343
I am a long-term user of this unit and I've thoroughly enjoyed my stay thus far. The owner/manager have been very responsive in the few cases I've needed to call them (a/c needed recharging). The unit is very close to food and attractions if you want to leave the room. Great view of the beach and pool. Would recommend to anyone for short- or long-term. Will definitely come again. One minor criticism, the bathroom was clean overall, but not spotless. A couple spots coud have been better, but I did arrive early while the cleaning crew was still getting the room ready, to be fair."
