“Comfortable and secure place to stay”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were attracted to this resort due to the ecosustainability advertised on their website. The villas are beautiful and full of modern conveniences except some do not have air conditioning which we did not need. The setting is on a beautiful mountain side near the OSA peninsula with a lot of rain forest as a backdrop. It is a gated community and one of the safest places we've stayed. We had our 2 younger children and did not worry about them as they ran around during the day. There are trails into the forest to explore and lots of paid tours to keep one busy. Some of the tours are still working out the details as they are new at the tourist scene with the canopy tour zip lining a must. The residents treat you as one of their own and are more than willing to help with anything and include you in all their activities. The restaurant has fantastic food, they grow and raise almost everything there but portions are small and prices a bit on the expensive side. They had a nice bar and a great pool although due to the chemical free nature it was green all the time which worried my kids. We loved being there but would skip the camping in the jungle at night tour (maybe great for those who are never in the outdoors but a little too plush and close to the villas for seasoned campers) and spent more time exploring trails on our own.

Room Tip: We rented the 3 bedroom villa but others said the 1 and 2 room villas were just as nice.

We have been following the development of Osa Mountain Village for years and were excited to finally have a chance to see it for ourselves. The villagers have created all they write about and more. They are just getting setup at the time of our visit in March so admittedly there was some construction and some kinks getting sorted out. Part of the fun and adventure to see a real eco-community developing. Gorgeous pool area, Ricardo's delicious food, the fun tiki bar, the amazing diversity of food plants, chickens, goats, ducks. Hiking trails galore with a gorgeous private waterfall. Serenity and a real jungle experience await. The units are brand new, beautifully finished. We were able to buy our week's groceries of fresh fresh fruits and vegetables, some beans for around $80 and supplement with Osa's eggs, tomatoes and other surplus veg and fruit they offer/sell. It was wonderful to shop like a local and eat like a king. After hiking, we'd read by the pool. Their friend Cliff owns a place restaurant and small motel just down the mountain on the most pristine beautiful beach imaginable. You can park here securely, and he'll set you up with a cooler of beers and you can swim in the 86 degree water, rest along the jungley shore (no development along the beach). Watch for howler monkeys on the trail back to the restaurant before you drive up the graded mountain road to your cozy base at Osa Mountain Village. This community is happening and we were jealous to here of the stories of people who are making it happen, relocating here, their children learning Spanish in a term at the local school, setting up entrepreneurial businesses within the community. Everyone is super friendly and will strive 100% to make you feel at home. Lots of bird life, we saw a toucan and other wonderful sights. Stay 5 nights to a week, you won't regret it!

Room Tip: Try to book a unit an easy walk to the pool if you plan to spend time there.

If you're healthy and want to stay that way, if your a good person and want to be around other good people, if you want to make a wise investment in your future, don't pass up OMV. Our 5 day stay exceeded expectations by a long shot. The people we met truly walk the talk about ecology and sustainability. They are also the people we already miss and would absolutely want as neighbors. Should our life at sea ever end, we will answer the call of the jungle and the pure life at OMV. . . if there is a spot open!

I had read about OMV online and we just had to plan a stay there on our next trip to Costa Rica, which we did last month and it was well worth the effort to get up the mountian. It is really a world by itself. They have begun to create a village high up in the rain forrest, with no mosquitos and a cooler temp 70's and 80's with very good sleeping temps during the night.
We love to hike and OMV did not disappoint, it is early in the game here as they re just getting started, but with 700 plus acres I hope they have miles more trails the next time we visit. We did several trails to waterfalls and saw some amazing birds and plants.
our afternoons were spent by the pool and evenings at the poolside resturant where we enjoyed the simply prepared, delicious meals. It was nice to be so self contained.
If you love beaches, there is no better beach than bellina, which is about 20 minutes down the mountian. It is worth the trip.

Room Tip: away from the new construction is the only suggestion. It is so quiet at night, I slept so good.

The available villas for rental (the construction will continue, as the development progresses) are spacious, well decorated, and fully equipped (even satellite tv), and very reasonably priced. Nice pool area (with bar/bartender, small restaurant in the rancho area), self-service laundry available, morning wake up calls from howlers, several on-site tour and activities are offered, and a (representative) tour office on the main highway will link you to the awesome Osa tourist opportunities.
The 6 km road up to the "village" is a bit rough (4WD needed), but certainly doable; you won't be dashing back if you forgot your sunscreen, but the location is appropriate if you want to leave in the a.m., come back at the end of the day, or hike around on the property instead of driving. Also, if you are thinking of investing in property in the Osa, this might be a good introduction (or perhaps choice).

We spent 4 days as guests at OMV in the very early stages of development. Our stay preceded much of the contruction now visable, including the pool area. The one bedroom villa we stayed in was comfortable, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The design of the project is sound and the vision of Jim G., the developer, is unfolding much as he planned. The vistas are beautiful. The road at the time of our visit was a challenge, necessitating a 4x4 vehicle. There's a lot of enthusiasm on the part of the people who are putting down stakes on this beautiful mountain top away from the crowds of the beach locations nearby. It would be our choice if we decide to relocate to Costa Rica in the future.
