The rooms (type 4 & 6) are a nice size for a family of 4. I like that the sleeping quarters are in a separate... More

This was our first time staying at the Matador and we will loved our time there. We will be going back. The location is the best!! It is right on the beach and right at the beginning of the boardwalk. The staff was very nice and the facility was very clean. Very family oriented. I highly recommend this place.

My stay at the Matador was amazing. It's right on the beach, and the entrance to the Boardwalk is right next to the resort. The staff are amazing, and the maids are great. The rooms are amazing, the pool is great, and the view is amazing. I look forward to next summer, so I can come again.

We just stayed for our 8th year with a large family and booked already for next year. The location is perfect, entrance to the boardwalk, playground for the kids and right on the beach. The Matador is absolutely beautiful, clean and has very friendly staff. We look forward to staying there every year and plan on staying for many years... More

The cleanliness is excellent and the rooms are so cozy. It's everything you would want it to be and more. Ocean front view from our room... More

This is our third family reunion at the Matador. My daughters and their family's come from as far as Texas, York PA, & Huntingdon Valley PA. We've come back here because it's a first class operation. The rooms are clean, the motel workers are always prompt in dealing with any problems with a smile. The pool is clean and safe.... More
