Nice condo for the price I work with the Air Force so I usually stay at Fort Walton for 4-6 weeks every summer in the past three years. Every time I stayed at El Matador but in different condos. So far this one is absolutely the best for the price. It's located at the very end of the 5th floor so almost no traffic at all; quiet and private. The balcony opens to the ocean which is only 200 yards away. Can't beat the location. You can even watch the July 4th fireworks show right from the balcony. My only suggestion is that, as also pointed out by other guests, the living room could use a new TV. I believe the current one is probably from 1990s. Other than that, this condo is great. Will definitely come back next summer. Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor; Tuesday, August 2, 2016 We are so glad that you enjoyed the condo, and we hope to see you again next year, and if this condo is available we can get you to go in there again. I will notify the owner today to pick up a new tv for that living room, and we never knew that there was an issue with it. But, thanks for letting us know, and looking forward to seeing you once again in 2017

A new tv was installed in living room but it needs to be readjusted, picture not full screen.El Matador is a very well maintained resort thanks to its friendly, courteous and cheerful employees. We look forward to our visit every year and several friends are also now renting at El Matador. Response from Alicia J.

We will take care of that issue with the TV, and have it adjusted, and i am so glad the you enjoyed our glorious sunrises and sunsets from there.

Perfect 3 Night Stay We love everything about Okaloossa Island. Relaxing time with family. The El Matador complex is well maintained and beach access is handy from any building on the property. Loved being able to drink coffee and watch the waves roll in from the balcony. <br/>The balcony floor could use a fresh coat of paint, it is very chipped and kind of hurt your feet. Small issue I know. Other than that it is a fabulous condo that we would stay in again.

Beach Trip 2015 The El Matador complex is a beautiful place. The location is wonderful. Beaches are beautiful. The best thing is it's right next to miles of uninhabited shoreline. Gorgeous. The condo was OK. The appliances need updating as well as the TV in the living room. It was clean. The master bed has a very firm mattress. I thought the condo would be a little nicer considering the amount of money that we paid, but those things can be fixed. Overall it was great. The location is so nice it makes up for everything that was sub-par. We would stay here again. Response from Alicia J. Hollis, Realtor; Tuesday, July 28, 2015 We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the el matador, and thanks for taking the time to review your unit. I am glad to get your comments so that I can pass it on to the owners, so those things can be fixed for your next time. We hope that we will have the pleasure of providing your accommodations the next time you visit our beautiful beaches on Okaloossa Island with Alicia Hollis Realtor.
