Client Reviews

April 21, 2024

We had a perfect stay with andBeyond at Benguerra Island and we mean that, just perfect. The room, the decor, the staff, the food, the drinks, the activities, the transfer! We stayed for five nights in our trip to Mozambique and South Africa and it was the one highlight (as there were a few!). Thanks especially to Isaac, Renoir, Sergio and Sarah for being there for us 24/7!!!
