El Matador
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 3, 2007

We spent the last week of March 2007 at the El Matador condos on Okaloosa Island. It is absolutely a great place to stay. We had the last building on the west and our balcony overlooked the beach. On our early morning walks, especially if we walked to the west, there were many times when there was no one else in our sight. The place doesn't seem to get the spring break partiers and when we were there seemed more of a family and retired folks kind of place. There are no stores nearby so a car is a must if you want to get around the area.
