Description

Welcome to El Matador Resort, on beautiful Okaloosa Island.  The powdery, sugar-white sands found here are unique to this exclusive area, and if you are fortunate enough to vacation here, you'll experience a beach vacation like nowhere else in the US.  The island atmosphere of Okaloosa eliminates the crowded found in nearby Destin, while putting you within minutes of Destin Harbor and all of the attractions of the Emerald Coast.



El Matador Resort, unit 432 has had a total remodel from floor to ceiling.  This updated, upscale platinum condominium is undoubtedly one of the nicest 2 bedroom units in the El Matador Resort.   This unit, located in building 4, is close to the ocean and pool, with 360 views of the beach and Okaloosa Island.



The living and dining area, which adjoin the private balcony, have an open floor space, offering room for your family to relax.  With features such as the large flat screen, wall-mounted tv to the smooth ceiling texture, nothing has been overlooked in regards to your comfort and enjoyment.  



The living room has a 50" wall-mounted, flat screen tv with a BluRay player and stereo.  The master bedroom has a 36' flat screen tv, and the second bedroom has a 27' flat screen tv.



The kitchen has been opened up to the dining area for more space and ease of setting the table.  Granite countertops and upscale appliances give this space a simple, yet luxurious feel...a perfect addition to this already magnificent vacation property.  



The bedrooms, with updated tvs and new bedding, offer the most comfort available in the El Matador Resort.  Each of the two bathrooms has a shower and upscale appointments.  (2 showers, no tub).



We provide bed linens, blankets, bath towels, etc.  Please bring your own beach towels.  There are communal Washers and Dryers near the elevator lobby on each floor.



El Matador Resort is a gated resort, with a 24 hour security check point.  Spacious 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 immaculately 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.

Great vacation!    Sep 10, 2020

review star


We absolutely loved our stay at El Matador! The condo was well stocked with dishes, more then you could use. Silverware could be replaced and there is not enough of it to run the dishwasher once a days. The condo had comfortable beds and hotel quality bedding and towels, which we loved!  The condo was spacious and nicely decorated. It had amazing views from the balcony as well as the kitchen window while doing dishes. We ate in most days and found it convenient to cook and grill. After extending our stay, we had to do laundry. It was just a few doors down and the laundry room was well maintained. But bring quarters, $3 total for washer and drier. The convenience stores are not making change. The grounds were great, beach and pool were right there. We loved having beach chairs included which meant we only packed water and towels to go to the beach/pool. We went back to the condo to eat or brought it out and ate by the pool. The convenience was great. The beach was never crowded because it is the last resort on the strip. I don’t want others to find out about this amazing vacation spot! After one week there, we were not ready to go home and we were able to extend our stay for an additional two days. We can’t wait to return hopefully soon.

Wonderful Stay!    Jun 09, 2020

Everything about our stay here was wonderful - the condo, the beach, and even the weather! The condo was clean and nicely updated. The location to the beach was perfect for us - great view from the balcony and just a short walk to the sand. We also appreciated all the information that was provided to us before we arrived and how easy it was to check in - just park and enter! Thank you for making our first trip to this area a great one - we will be back!
