El Matador Resort is a gated resort, with a 24 hour security check point. Spaceous lawns and walking paths provide a peaceful getaway within the resort. 2 large pools offer fun for everyone. A large exercise gym and his/her spas are also free to everyone staying in the resort. There are basketball and tennis courts available to everyone, and a large reception hall may be reserved in advance for parties or meetings.
About the area: Okaloosa Island is part of a 30 mile stretch of continuous natural sand barrier. The ocean here is typically as clear as any water can be, with an emerald green color unique to this small area. The sands are pure white and powdery, like sugar, and the beaches are kept emaculately clean and safe by wonderful Okaloosa County authorities. There is plenty of fun right here on the island, from putt putt golf, to outdoor grills to fine dining and night life. We have a fishing pier just a mile away, which is also the home of the original Gulfarium Dolphin Exhibit. Take the kids to the Gulfarium to see dolphins perform, as well as their friends the walrus, sea lions, and penguins. They'll love it.
Okaloosa Island is located within Fort Walton Beach and near world famous Destin. Destin, a beautiful 10 minute drive to the East, where she will meet you with a picturesque view of the Destin Harbor at Harbor Walk Village. Destin is home to the largest private Gulf Fishing Fleet and busiest charter deep sea fishing fleet in the Southeast. If you are interested in good seafood, then just pick one of Destin's many dockside grills for a taste of the day's fresh catch.
The more adventurous may enjoy a jet ski dolphin tour, or a parasailing adventure. You may also find bungee jumping, go karting, golf, putt putt golf, water theme parks, outlet shopping and much more. Bring your family to our beautiful coastline, and take home memories of a lifetime.

I was very impressed with the condo, it was very spacious and comfortable. It was very clean. Loved the beach theme.
I will definitely stay there again.
Our stay in the condo was absolutely amazing. It was so wonderful being in a fairly secluded area with super easy beach access. The condo itself is like home, like staying at mom's house. The owners have thought of everything, when they say the kitchen is fully equipped, they actually mean it. We didn't have to wish for anything or do without when preparing our meals. The rooms were spacious and it was so comfortable with such a large group. We are definitely putting this down as one of the best trips ever and that was in part because of the awesome place we were staying. The entire condo was great, the pools, the beautiful grass areas outside the room, and the security desk lady was just so nice and inviting. Oh, and the closet of fun, they have one, two and three of most anything you need for the beach. Thanks to the gracious owners for extending their property to us.
Sandra's ground floor condo is just a walk off the beach and great for families who need a yard. Overall the affordable price and location are the best qualities. I'd recommend it with a few concerns that can be addressed easily.
The cleanliness front can be improved. When we rolled out the sofa bed, it was full of peanuts. The front twin bed room has a musty stench that may come from the carpet or the beds - and should be looked into.
Check-in was fine on the first day, but security guards at the gate gave visiting relatives a hard time. It seems they wanted more than just a name and condo #. It would've been helpful to have a direct number to the security gate.
We really enjoyed our trip to Okaloosa Island and our stay at the El Matador. There was so much to do and we had so much fun! The property was well maintained and clean. Our condo was just a short walk to the pool and the beach. The condo was nice and comfortable. The owners answered all of our questions and gave us some great recommendations on places to try. If you are looking for a fun vacation and a great place to stay this is it! There were even beach chairs, toys, and a tent for the beach for our use. Would definitely come again!
This was a nice condo. It was well stocked and clean. Would stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay in this condo and would definitely book again.
