Dear Guest, Greetings from MAIA and thank you for your message. The villa that you are referring to is villa 205, one of MAIA Signature villa on the hillside. All of our MAIA signature villas on the beach level have direct access to the beach, however limited in terms of view as there are vegetation in between them and the beach to preserve the privacy of our guests. V205 will tick all boxes, although the beach accessible from that villa is more of a rocky sort, compared to the main one. We do not have a seaweed issue as such, however we have a team who regularly clean the beach. Regards, The reservations team
