“A piece of heaven”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2013

We reserve this condo in August, for the past five years. We love it on the sixth floor, the view is spectacular. The condo was remodeled last year and the renovations make this condo a wonderful place to stay.

“unit 469 our little piece of heaven for two weeks a year...”

“Great Time at the Beach”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

Great view, beaches, sparkling pool, we had a great time. This was our third time at the El Matador and second time with this room. We will be back.


Reviewed 22 Apr 2013

This was our first time renting a condo at El Matador. I loved the condo with one exception. I do not believe the condo was cleaned the way it should be. For a 150.00 cleaning fee, I expect not to see dirt on my feet immediately after my shower on the first night. I expected the shower doors to be cleaned of their soap scum. I will definitely make sure the floors and bathrooms are clean before unpacking next year. Other than that, we loved our stay.

Response from the manager Hi Denise, I first wanted to let you know that you stayed in unit 467 not 469 at the el matador, and i am so sorry to hear that your unit was not cleaned. You should anytime when you check in and find something is not to your satisfaction, please, please call us and we would have taken cared of that right away, and sent the Housekeeper back up there to clean it. There is no reason for you to be unhappy on your wonderful vacation, and have dirty floors. I apologize about that, and i hope to see you again next year for Spring Break, and we will take this matter to management. I am happy to see that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks Chris.

“Unit 469”

Reviewed 1 Apr 2013

We like the location of El Matador Condos, unit 469 has a beautiful view but the accommodations we feel could be better in this unit. That is the reason for the low scores regarding the general condition. The master bed is uncomfortable, we also did not have proper bedding, no masterbed blanket and the sheets were very old. The accommodations in the spare bedroom are old as well. Lastly, the unit was not very clean when we arrived.

“Booked El Matador rentals thru Alicia Hollis for decades.”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2012

I have always booked rentals at El Matador thru Alicia Hollis since the 80's. Never a problem, always helpful, and promptly takes care of any problem that may arise. Can't ask for better people to work with, especially Chris, the person I usually deal with. El Matador is, I think, the oldest condo on the island, but the best in my opinion. Very well maintained, 24 hour security, and miles of undelevoped beach next door. Lots of roomy lawn space, large main pool next to beach that is spotless, and friendly beach guys that handle chair and umbrella rentals. This is my favorite spot on my favorite beach.

“El Matador 469”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2012

We have stayed at the El Matador many times in the past 30 years in various condos on the property. Splendid beaches and privacy. This particular condo was just not up to the standard of our previous stays. It had spectacular views of the ocean, corner unit close to the beach. The kitchen was ill equipped for cooking, many essentials missing. And the condo was just "not quite clean" enough for our standards. We did cleaning of surfaces and bathrooms before using. Alicia Hollis, Realtor has always been friendly and helpful. We will come back to the El Matador, just not in that particular condo unit and will request thorough cleaning before arrival.

“Unit 469 is an A+”

Reviewed 25 Jul 2012

Unit needs spatulas, cork screw and a few other kitchen utensils other wise best unit I have stayed in. I was glad I made the unit switch. :-)

Response from the manager thanks for letting us know about that, we shall take care of it immediately. Hope to see you soon, Christine AUlt.

“Not so great.”

Reviewed 9 Jul 2012

When we arrived, our keys were not in the lock box. Tried to call the "emergency number" as it was after hours. Got no answer. Had to go down to the condos and have the security guard call another # to get an answer. We were met with a grouchy and condescending attitude from the AH rep. Met her down at the office and she checked the lockbox and then went inside and got our keys and then just started making excuses for herself but didn't apologize. The unit was just average and not very clean. You'd think for the amount of money that we spent on this unit that it would have been cleaner and had nicer, more updated furniture. Instead, we had a semi-dirty unit with filthy rugs, dirty bathrooms, and worn out furniture. The unit said it had WiFi but had to again call the AH office to get the password. It's like we had to keep asking and asking to get the services we paid for. Not impressed this time around guys.
