I spent four days at the Tango Reef. It is located by the ocean fairly close to town. The breeze off the water is really nice and makes sitting on their patio very comfortable. It sits a block or so off the main road so it is quiet The staff are very cooperative and do everything they can to make...

We spent here two wonderful days. The building is completely new and the rooms are wide and clean. The beach is exactly in front of the hotel and the area is quite and really good serviced. The owner is friendly and helpful. We recommend this hotel.

Our family stayed at Tango Reef 3 nights instead of 2 we planned. We got a spacious room with 2 big and really comfortable beds, non AC, lets say hot but it wasn't really as hot as you could expect reading some reviews. The attached bathroom was comfortable, and big enough, water was really hot all the time and the...

Had one night here but came back as friends carried their stay from 1 night to 3 because it was such a nice place to relax. 15 metres from the beach, 5 mins from town centre. There is a home stay at the roadside who provides great food, both breakfast and supper! Rice and curry is always a winner!

Stayed at Tango Reef for 3 nights, the hotel is new and basic! The owner is very sweet, and offered us food and tea! Brilliant location right on the beach, lovely bar next door where you can get food and drinks! All the people here are lovely, excellent value for money!

We arrived from Arugam Bay very late in the afternoon and struggling to find accommodation, managed to locate a room at Tango Reef by calling a friend of a friend. Tango Reef is definitely not a hotel, it is a house that has not been completed. The owner is very sweet and friendly but sadly seems oblivious to the shortcomings...

We booked a triple room, got only a double room without refunding. "Hotel" is more a house under construction - only base floor exists. Furniture to place suitcase are missing. Rooms are without A/C and therefor sticky warm. Water tubes do terrible noise when flushing toilet, showering or washing hands. Cockroach, gecko and moskitos were found in room. Problem(s) are...

Early January and nowhere to stay. Tried lots of places which were either grotty or full. Tango Reef is new and not finished yet so luckily there was room for us. Only the ground floor is complete. Restaurant and upper levels are yet to be added. Very peaceful stay - sandy beach directly in front and lots of nearby beach...
