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.

"great place to unwine
Quite,great place to stay."
Sep 17, 2018 - Victoria G., Summerville, SC

Great time at the beach. Ground floor is great for the kids to come in and out and have some additional room to play outside. Great grassy area right on the balcony. Save guarded grounds great for family."

"Great location!
Overall wonderful experience! Has to be the best location on the beach! The room could use a new shower curtain and carpet could be better but other then that was great!!"

"Unit needs update
Love the El Matador complex. Looks like they stepped up their game. Grounds were neat, pools were clean. Love the area. Beach was superb. The water was the best I've seen in years. No seaweed or jellyfish. However, this unit is very old and outdated. Was certainly adequate, but not up to the standards of others. Have rented about a dozen units over the years and this was by far the worst."

"Our stay at 117 El Matador
Our experience was pretty good. The place could use some updating, but served our purpose well. There was a bad smell when we first walked in the door (later deduced that it was the vent a hood filter) but we sprayed room deodorizer and was better after that. And I there needs to be places on the patio to hang things.
All in all it was a good place to do the beach (which is further than 50 yards, but still close)."

"The Bonin's
Me n the wife had a great time. The bed was very comfortable. The stove was a lil out dated but the room n view plus the short walk to the was worth it. Please keep me up to date on special offers you have ! "

"The Low down
We enjoyed our stay. El Matador as a whole was great and our unit 117 was decent. The only complaints were the unit needs to get rid of that nasty carpet and ideally have all tile floors. Also the outdoor furniture was terrible and the plastic chairs almost collapsed while sitting in them. "

"Good Management
We had some issues that were out of the mgmt co control (a/c went out), & they had it fixed immediately. They went the extra mile to make sure things were right for us."

"A nice unit
The unit is old, but nice. The furniture on the balcony is plastic and very old, but we never used it anyways. Also, there was a problem with lights -- some of them were accidentally not working. But overall the unit is nice and if any problems occur they will fix them quickly."

"do not stay in 117!!!
It was so gross that we wouldn't let the baby crawl on the floor. Stains on carpet/chairs, the front door was impossible to open/shut, and we found a fingernail clipping on one of the dressers. It grossed me out just to think about it. Thankfully, we were able to change to a much nicer unit ... but lamely we had to pay $40. "

"Beach Life
The location of this condo and the amenities in the complex are fantastic!"

"Spring Break 2013
We have stayed at the El Matador many times, but this was by far the worst condo we have ever been in. Most of the appliances were old and in disrepair, and some did not work at all. The entire condo appeared as though it had not had a good cleaning in several years. The sliding glass door took 2 people to pull it open and the front door barely stayed shut. The windows that did open would not stay open. The new vacuum had so much dirt clogged in it, it did not work and once I got the dirt out I found a sock stuck in the brush and then a broken belt. When I turned on the old bag vacuum all it did is create more dirt to clean up. When we pulled the bed out of the sofa it would appear no one had ever cleaned under it or any of the other furniture. There were old beer bottle caps on top of the refrigerator and the TV's were very old tube sets. The internet worked if you wanted to sit on the floor by the TV because only a short cord was available to use. The WIFI did not work because the power unit was burned out. Only one plugged worked on almost every outlet in the condo leading me to believe code enforcement should have been called in order to make it safe for people to stay in the building. The beds were also extremely uncomfortable. Luckily we had other relatives staying in much nicer units and had good weather so we did not have to spend too much time in our unit. The El Matador is a nice place to stay, but don't stay in unit 117."

Very good for the price/value. Like the short term lease. Furniture was good for the price. Could use a few upgrades though. "
