Not as clean as it should be.I had to make calls to cable company to get internet fixed. We are staying here one more time. If things are not better we won't stay again

“Perfect for our family!”

Reviewed 9 Jun 2013

This was our 2nd time staying at the El Matador and it won't be our last! I will start by saying that the only disappointment with this unit was that it didn't have wi-fi. In this day and age when everyone has lap tops, smart phones and iPads, it is hard to comprehend a landlord not providing this basic amenity. Other than that, this unit was perfect for our family of 4. The view from the balcony was absolutely beautiful and I would recommend this wing of bldg 3 (or the same wing of bldg 4 directly opposite 3) because of the amazing view and proximity to the gulf. We drove so we were able to leave all of our beach gear in the back of our van without having to cart it up and down the steps each day. We never had a problem finding a parking place right in our path from the condo to the beach! This was so convenient! The kitchen appeared to have been remodeled within the last few years with new sink, countertops, cabinets and some of the appliances. Being an older building, you never quite know what you will be getting, but even the things that we could tell were a bit older, were still in good shape and clean! The decor is dated but we are not so concerned with that. We are mainly concerned with cleanliness, which it was, and location. Another thing we like about the El Matador is that it is the very last building before Eglin Air Force Base property. So, the beach to the west of us is barren except for a few people walking. This unit came with a beach umbrella and 2 chairs that were waiting for us each morning down at the beach. Just give the guy your name and unit number. And don't forget to check out the new spa in the office building! You need to leave a $10 deposit at the guard station in order to get a key, but you will get your entire deposit back when you return the key.

I love the place except it needs new living room furniture. Very outdated.

“First Time at El Matador”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2012

At the last moment we were relocated to El Matador and wasn't quite sure, but was totally impressed of how clean the unit was, unbelievable Gulf Front View and visible to the pool. The ocean was so calm as my grandchildren learned how to Yolo Board from Rob. Grandson (9yrs) fished every day and caught: sea bass,Skip-Jack and Pompano,s. Lost a complete rod and reel to a very big fish. Would not have any trouble staying here again. Thanks for the great memories.

“Our Place”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2012

We have stayed at this property for over 25 years so that tells you how much we love it. One thing we do miss is the game room for the children. Our children loved that every year, especially when they had had enough sun or it was raining. We have grandchildren who go with us now and we would love to see this return. The weight room is great, but the children need something else there to do. We love the location, the atmosphere and all about it. It is terribly expensive though and each year we wonder if we will be able to do it again. Linda Best

“El Matador unit 363”

Reviewed 26 Jun 2012

The unit and grounds were as wonderful as ever! Will be back next year. The only complaint I have is regarding the night security guard, Kevin. He was very unprofessional, approached different children and questioned them when the parents were with them. He was very rude to us and to other guests we spoke with. He spent a long time away from the guard shack hanging out and talking with kids on the gazebo one night. It just seems a little odd, been coming here since early 70's and have always appreciated the security. This was concerning and made me tend to keep my kids in at night unless I was with them.
