Thank you so much for your review! We very much appreciate your understanding regarding the fire alarm. And you are absolutely correct, we would much rather an alarm that goes off when it isn't supposed to then one that doesn't go off when it should. We hope you will join us again next year! More

From check in to check out everything was wonderful. Extremely clean and well taken care of. We have been going the same week every year for almost 20 years. Never a problem. Every year there has been some kind of upgrade.

I booked our vacation via phone which was the best way to go. The guy at the hotel was able to direct me to the right type of room to be able to comfortably fit the pack-n-play for my baby girl to sleep in. Once there, everything was in clean working order. The kitchen in the room was fully stocked!... More

The owners and employees of the Matadore Oceanfront Resort are very nice, friendly, and welcoming. The resort is very clean, smoke free in most areas, and very convenient to the beach and boardwalk. My family and I will stay again next year for a long Labor Day weekend.
