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.

"Pleasant stay
The condo was nice. There are some things that can be updated. The front door had a gap when locked. We had to push close to not have such a big gap but still some gap after pushing shut. The sliding glass door is old and lock kept falling off. Bed was very very firm but not for us. Condo was in a good location for the walk to the beach and parking lot. Dead roaches on floor in second bedroom but that is expected since unit is on ground floor. Condo was clean other than that. I feel like if you’re paying a lot of money for a unit it should be updated to some point. "

"Spring getaway
Another wonderful spring break with family."
Apr 17, 2023 - Suzanne D., Auburn Hills, MI

"Excellent Property
We had a great experience at this property. It was well maintained and convenient to the Ft. Walton/Destin area. The kitchen was well equipped and the rooms clean. A short walk to the beach and pool. We had a small issue with the lock on the door, but maintenance was there in less than 20 minutes and fixed the issue. The laundry room was close by and very clean. We hope to return in the near future. "

The condo is an awesome unit, the only problem is there are alot of ROACHES"
Jun 21, 2021 - Butch & Paulette R., Lafayette, LA

"It was wonderful as usual.
The unit was nice but appliances could use an update. The coffee pot was tricky. You had to stay close and sometimes had to turn it of and on a few times before it worked. I enjoyed my stay but there was times I wondered if I had chose unit 415 would it have been nicer."

"October Getaway to FWB
Another super getaway to the coast and stay at the El Mat Unit 410. We waited until late to decide on this trip and were happy to see that this unit was available as we have stayed here for numerous years and like the location.

The drive down was quite soggy with the remnants of Hurricane Delta, but things cleared when we reached FWB and there was a tremendous sunset that so many of us got to enjoy... along with a nice beach wedding!

This unit is well-kept and very clean, but is showing its age... especially in the decorating scheme and some fixtures. The owner would be wise to consider some updates, but again, that would all be cosmetic as the 'bones' are great and the El Matador is well managed and the facility is maintained nicely.

I appreciate the assistance of Sher and the crew at , Realtor. I required their additional assistance with delivery of a package while we were on vacation and their professionalism was really appreciated!

Great week at the beach!"

"El Matador - Unit #410
Had a good experience

Had a good experience - Like Work out area
View dolphins Grounds well maintained

Mar 26, 2018 - Dale B., Green Bay, WI

There's really 1 word to describe our stay in Unit 410. EXCELLENT. From the interior amenities to the outside porch beach access as well as parking access. This unit is one of the nicest, up to date units around.

The only downside we found was the master bedroom mattress could use an update, but that wouldn't keep us from choosing this unit in the future.

"EL MATADOR 410 Review
A very well furnished and well maintained condo. Right at the pool and the beach. Parking is convenient in October and not crowded. A great location."

"A great vacation
Clean, attractive,close to the beach"
Aug 14, 2017 - Ginny K., Florence, KY

"Best beach in Ft.Walton.
I really like to stay at the El Matador in Ft Walton because of the beach. There are no condos to the right of the complex ,thus, the beach is not as crowded as many other places. I particularly like the ground floor units in Building 4. While our unit has been updated, it could really use a decor update! Bedding,rugs, pillows etc. Please loose the peach walls and navy sofa. Dated!"

"El Matador 410
The beach is beautiful. We liked the privacy of the location - since there are no condos on the east side of the property it seemed a little less crowded. We enjoyed the extra amenities of the property (pools, tennis, basketball, sauna, fitness center, etc.) The staff were pleasant and helpful. This is not an upscale property if you're looking for something new and posh, but the grounds were nicely kept with extra space for kids to play. Unfortunately, we had a problem with cockroaches in this unit (we saw a total of 10 during our stay - both live and dead) which was very disturbing. Not sure if it's just this unit or if others have same issue. Parts of the facility seemed run down while other aspects seemed new and updated. Other than the bug problem, we would have enjoyed it. "

As always, we loved our stay at El Matador. Unit 410 is a beautiful, well equipped condo - a wonderful place to relax after a day on the beach. Looking forward to next spring. Jim and Sue D. Auburn Hills, MI"

"Awesome Beach stay
We have rented at El Matador for 19 years and counting. We love everything about the property, beach, pool, shopping and dining. We come every year. We prefer the ground floor. "

"A vacation with uninvited guest!!! 18 PALMETTO ROACHES INVASION!!
We have been vacationing at El Matador for at least 35 years . I was overwhelmed and disgusted with having all these ROACHES in my CONDO !!! I do not leave the comfort of my home tooooo have to deal with these circumstances!!! Very disappointing. "

"Robertson Vacation June 2015
We always have good time in El Matador 410. The mattress in the master bedroom needs to be replaced, and the fan in that room needs a speed controller. Otherwise, great!"

We really enjoy our few day. Everyone was nice the weather perfect"

"Karen's Stay
This is the first time to deal with and was very pleased. Every time I called, all were very polite and helpful, even to the point of asking for a referral for dinner. The condo was beautiful. comfortable and very well stocked. Loved the location. Thank you all, to the group."

"Easter Break, 2014
As always, a wonderful experience. The setting is spectacular and the condo was lovely. Unfortunately, someone was able to beat us out for renting the condo next year at Easter, but we are hopeful we will once again be able to stay in 410 for Easter, 2016.

"Mostly very good.
We enjoy El Matador an the area in general. This unit is nice but the location is not the best."

"Okaloosa Island Vacation
Great place to stay"
Jul 03, 2013 - Jay L., Lakeland, TN

"Great trip!
We love coming to El Matador. We always stay at El Matador whenever we vacation in Florida. We love the property, beaches, location, views, and the area."
Mar 26, 2013 - Justin F., MOMENCE, IL - Illinois

"Always a great experience!!
We've been vacationing at Okaloosa Island (Fort Walton Beach, Florida) and renting through every year for 12 years and I would higly recommend the entire experience. The rooms are well taken care of and if you have any issue at all, you just call and they'll take care of it. We stay at the El Matador and even though it's the oldest complex on the island, there are units that are remodeled and are very nice. One thing that makes it nice is that it's at the very end of the island so it doesn't feel as crowded on the beach. The beach is amazing with its white powdery sand and the ocean is a beautiful emerald green. There is never a shortage of restaurants and shopping and you can even take the short drive to Destin and find many more things to do. A great overall experience every time we visit! "
Sep 17, 2012 - Stephanie D., Leroy, IL

"Great Stay
We enjoyed our stay without question. Had a little trouble with the garbage disposal but that was all. Hope to be back soon."
