This was our first time staying in North Wildwood after staying in the Crest for over 30 years. The Matador was close to everything, staff was very friendly and helpful and always had a smile on their face. We had a poolside view on the 2nd floor and the view was perfect.

Our family had a wonderful week at the Matador. Altogether our large family had nine rooms. Everyone on staff, from the office to the cleaning staff, were friendly and helpful.
