Old condos but well kept
This unit was on the front of the property and the farthest from the ocean. Old amenities, but well maintained and clean.
Quiet Stay at the Beach
We were thrilled with this condo for our long weekend at the beach. El Matador is located at the end of a long strip of condos and hotels, adjacent to a military testing area. Therefore, it was quiet and the beach wasn't as crowded as we thought it'd be. The whole place was so clean, and the staff was so friendly and professional.
Building 5 faces the intercoastal waterway, so while there's no "ocean" or beach view, you can see the water and we enjoyed watching the boats.
The condo itself was wonderful. It was perfect for us. We have 3 small children and one of my only complaints was that it really wasn't toddler friendly (there's a large glass curio cabinet in the living room space and the DVD player was right as the toddler's level). I didn't expect that it would be baby proofed and it's a small complaint because everything was otherwise so wonderful.
The kitchen was well stocked with whatever equipment we needed to cook and bake. The bathrooms had sort of an odd layout in that they were all connected. The water itself was surprisingly soft for being at the beach, and the water pressure was good.
The master bedroom was a good size, and there's a huge walk-in closet. I was disappointed that there weren't light blocking curtains on the sliding glass door, as it was bright in the room at 6 am. The second bedroom was a little cramped with both beds in there, but our kids didn't care as they didn't spend any time in there but to sleep.
The walk to the beach is short and convenient, and there's a pool right next to the building. The laundry room is next to the elevators and I was surprised at how clean it was (but we didn't use it as we were only there a short time).
This was the first time I've ever been to a beach condo or resort and not seen a "water bug" dead or alive somewhere on the premises. I was really impressed with just how clean the property was.
Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and will definitely be back.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. We are extremely happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope that we will have the pleasure of providing your accommodations the next time you visit our beautiful area.
