The picturesque 12-acre resort features an impressive array of amenities including two pools, whirlpools, basketball and tennis courts, fitness center, saunas, barbecue, 24-hour security, and more. El Matador is a great option for any type of visitor from singles to families to business travelers.
Each two-bedroom unit at the El Matador is spacious and beautifully furnished with everything you need to make your vacation enjoyable, including a fully-equipped kitchen and large, private balcony with spectacular views of the Gulf of Mexico.
Just a 10-minute drive to Destin and even closer to Fort Walton, guests of El Matador enjoy the best of dining, shopping, and relaxation. Pandora‘s Steakhouse is just down the road by the Emerald Coast Convention Center or the Boardwalk is located off of the nearby Miracle Strip Parkway.

I was very pleased with my vacation rental. Condo #323 was exactly what I wanted. The pictures online were accurate in depicting the interior as well as the view from the balcony (which was important to me)! The condo was spacious, clean, & well stocked with kitchen ware. I also like the keyless entry and the close proximity to the elevators and laundry. If we vacation to Fort Walton again, I will certainly check the availability of condo #323.

My Rental experience started off great! with the Dale Peterson staff being very professional & helpful. Check in was very easy ,without having to pick up a key you could arrive at any hour. For my needs the #323 unit to perfect. Very comfortable for 4 people. you just can't beat the location. It's very private being at the end of the island. Pool was very clean, liked a guard being on duty 24hrs, the view from the condo let's you see the beautiful sunset,kitchen was stock well. I have stayed 3 times & will be back.
