El Matador, Fort Walton Beach
great week
Great place. One nit picky thing but the elevators in our building were a bit shaky. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

Very Good8.0
Great Value for the Price!
We loved our stay! The resort staff were all very friendly and helpful and our room itself was a great value for the price. We had easy access to the beach, pool and local shopping & dining.

Great Get Away
It is a Great place to go and get away from it all, I will definitely return, by the way this was my first time to stay at the El Matador and Ft Walton Beach!
James, us4 night trip
El Matador, Fort Walton Beach
Great peaceful location. Living with residents.
We had a delightful 3 night stay. The northwest view of our balcony made for lots of shady comfort. In our room the owners did leave the basic beach equipment in the balcony closet. Santa Rosa blvd is popular for exercise in the morning and the dead end nature made the balcony peaceful.

The area was very quiet and family-oriented. We loved the atmosphere.
