We made last minute reservations last week and that is always risky when you get what's left. The internet photos were only so-so. Our unit #255 was just right for three of us with the queen sleeper sofa. From our balcony we have a gulf view. Unit was on 5th floor and elevators were not busy. The walk to beach was minimal and the rinse off showers worked at the beach walkway-yay! Not always the case in even the best of accommodations. Our unit had a kitchen that had everything -even a food processor. The dressing area was separate from the shower which was good. The shower area was quite small though. If you are large-you will be cramped because of the way the door opens in. It needed a pocket door badly. The king bed in master slept great and both sets of patio doors opened. El Matador is located on Okaloosa Island just before you get to the Eglin AFB land-which is private. The water was crystal clear but it was a funky color green/brown. We could see the bottom clearly at eight feet. The sand was perfect.
