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.

"Spring Break Trip 2019
The condo has amazing views. The place wasn't very clean and area rugs were dirty. They hadn't been swept. The condo had been updated but not very clean. If you wanted to use the hot tub you had to pay 10.00 and sign a key out so that you could use the tub. That was a little inconvenient. The view were amazing and the people that lived in the condos and gate workers were all very friendly people. "

"Fantastic Vacation
From check in to check out the experience was efficient and easy. The unit was as advertised and we had a wonderful time!"

"Beautiful views!!
Our stay was wonderful. We really enjoyed the views of the Gulf and pool from our balcony. The condo was well appointed with kitchen supplies and extra blankets. Our only complaint was the number of towels for our group of 6. We only had six for the entire week, which then required frequent trips to the laundry (located outside the condo). I don’t like washing clothes on vacation."

"Excellent Condo - Beautiful View
Loved the renovations, we had a good time, weather was excellent and the water was crystal clear. "

"Cant wait to come back!
We had a great time! Our room was perfect for our stay, a home away from home. Beautiful view and great location to the beach and pool! Short driving distance from anything you would need. I will be booking again and requesting the same room! "

"Our ladies escape week
We have been coming to El Matador for over 10 years around this same time in May. Always a good experience. We all need lots of relaxation so we enjoy being at the end of the street, very private beach. The only complaint we had this time was that the blender did not work. I left a message but no one called back. A friend of ours from Pensacola was stopping by so she lent us hers."

Originally had booked 418. When we arrived (after the 3pm checkin time) the room was never cleaned. Beds not made, 3 dead roaches on the floor, coffee pot used, just a mess. Called several times to see what we should do. After traveling 7hrs with children this was very frustrating. My son needed to go to the bathroom when we arrived and I had no place to change my daughters diaper. As it began to storm we were still waiting to hear back from Mrs Hollis. As she arrived she gave us the option to stay in another room. With a parking lot view and on the corner. As this is not what we planned to stay in we asked that the original 418 be cleaned so we may return to our original destination of choice. The next day we were notified at 11 that our room was "ready" after moving from the parking lot room we unpacked into 418 only to discover more roaches. As I went to get my daughter from her nap there was a roach next to her pack n play so I then called to let them know this was just unexceptable. They the. Offered us to move back to the parking lot room but it was going to have to be opened by a lock smith as the key they have doesn't work and our keys were left in the room as we were told to do. We then had to move up to the 4th floor which we were very frustrated about as w havin children we wanted ground floor and that's what we had paid for. After our stay we' were NOT compensated for ANY of this. We lost a day and 1/2 of our vacation dealing w this mess and we're told we would not get any compensation for it. We will never get that time back. "

"Alberto who?
The condo location was perfect. The kitchen was great, it had everything we needed. Plenty of room, it was nice to have two double beds in the guest bedroom. It was clean and the chaise lounge was the perfect chair for my 80 year old arthritic mom who went with us. We could stay forever. Plus plenty of closet and storage for clothes and bags. Even a little pantry! "

"Family vacation 2017
We enjoyed our stat at the El Matador as usual. We have stayed with Alicia J. Hollis and El Matador many times. We keep returning every couple of years to the same spot and always have the best and most relaxing vacation of any place we have been. The balcony furniture needs replacing, currently made of pvc pipe and is coming apart."

"Great weather
Best January weather we have experienced at Fort Walton Beach. Our expectations are not the highest for El Matador, so we were not disappointed with the condo condition. Many of the owners use foam to stretch the life of mattresses and light bulbs aren't replaced or available, lamps may not work, etc.

"Mary Ann H
We love El Matador and have stayed here many times over 25+ years. The unit we stayed in recently -448- was dated. We were in this unit 2 years ago and it was dated then. Some kitchen drawers were not working with ease. The corners of the area rug under the dining table were turned up and presented a real tripping threat. Water faucet in the master bath was extremely slow running (but husband was able to "fix" by cleaning out the mineral buildup from the screen in the tap). Guest bath toilet was leaking water and we had to contact AH maintenance. Coffee pot was missing from the coffee maker. While this was remedied on Monday after our Saturday check-in, not being able to make coffee for two mornings of my 7 day stay was quite annoying. My expectations are to be able to walk into a unit and not have to deal with ANY issues. Wouldn't you agree?"

"The location was great best view of the ocean
The unit has not seen paint in twenty years.also when you first walk in it had mildew smell. Very dissatisfief"

"Great Complex...But...
This was out first stay at El Matador. Our family vacation was wonderful. We had a great experience with A.J. Hollis realtor, the complex was amazing. Everything at El Matador was well taken care of and in great condition. The pool was clean and crystal clear every day and I have never been in a pool restroom as clean and dry as this one. The unit could use a little updating. The beds were very comfortable, there are plenty of extra pillows, and the kitchen was adequately stocked. The problem we had was the furniture in the living room. If you want to come up to the room and relax after a long day at the beach and the pool, there is no way to do that. The furniture is very lumpy and the springs are nearly sticking out of the cushions. If we wanted to relax, we had to sit in the bedroom. This made it difficult to spend time with the family that traveled with us. I would definitely stay at El Matador again...I think it is my new favorite condo...but I would not rent this particular unit."

"Very laid back atmosphere
If you don't like crowds and just want enjoy the beach stay here!"

"El Matador 448
Very nice!"
Jun 17, 2016 - , Atlanta, TX

"First vacation to El Matador
Unit 448 provided a lovely view to the Gulf. However, the unit has not been updated since it was built--IMO. The kitchen appliances were old and worn and the bathroom walls and ceilings were severely water damaged. In fact, the popcorn ceilings were beginning to drop off and appeared black in some places. The windows were not in good working condition. I would not rent this unit again, nor would I recommend that anyone else does until it's updated. We would, however, consider returning to El Matador but would be more careful to rent a unit that has been updated/maintained. "

"Great time

"June 12-20 room 118 and 448
Your staff are always helpful. I needed to add an extra night to our stay and Amanda was able to help and find a condo for us."

"Matador June 24 - 29th stay
Hi - The location was great and the property itself was terrific. The pool was very clean as were the common areas and the beach. It was also nice to know that chair/umbrella service is available for a fee. We were disappointed with the Unit itself as it needs some serious upgrades to the kitchen and bathrooms. In short, we would stay at the El Matador and recommend it to others - just be sure to look closely at the individual unit. "

"Great Oceanfront Vacation Property
Our family really enjoyed the incredible view of this two bedroom Gulf Front unit rental. The weather was so incredible we slept with the balcony doors open every night! It is a great location and was clean. This particular unit is not as updated as some of the other units our friends stayed in here and we would have appreciated more kitchen utensils since this was probably the least stocked unit we have stayed in the past 3 years at El Matador. We love staying at El Matador because it is right next to Elgin Airfare base so the view to the right of the property is completely open and unobstructed. The white sand beach is groomed every morning and if you purchase beach service then your chairs and umbrella can be set up and ready for you every day."

"El Matador 448
Condo was well furnished, clean, great view of the gulf, all appliances worked properly and front door has a keyless entry lock which is very helpful with four people staying in it. I would definetly stay in the condo again. As always, A J Hollis did a great job with all arrangements."

we had a wonderful week as always. thought that the keypad for door opening was outstanding and would suggest this as an option for all rentals."

"July 4th fun in the sun
Wonderful week on the perfect beach! Condo had everything we needed away from home. See you next year"

"Shabby unit. Great view and location.
The location and view are about as good it gets. The unit itself is shabby and needs a complete renovation. Hollis should be ashamed to rent a unit in this condition, especially at $210 a day. There were so many issues that it would have been a waste of time complaining about them. I tuffed it out because of the view and gulf front location."

"El Matador Rental
The rental was is very good condition, clean, comfortable furniture with great location in the complex. We were disappointed that the beach chairs were no longer included though."
