Reviews for Cosanti Foundation

Role: General Member of the Public
Rating: 2 stars  

Looks like a lost city in the middle of nowhere. Unless you booked the sky suite the rooms with the shared bathrooms belong in the 1930s where that sort of thing was more common. Bad choice when you are trying to sell an idea that is set in the far flung future. Looks a bit rundown and most of the public spaces could use a bit of paint. Food in the cafe can range anywhere from good to really awful depending on who is cooking. How they managed to get as much done as they have is nothing short of a miracle. The management clearly does not know what they are doing. Tours range from made-up BS to total oversell of the project that is often disconnected from the reality of the place. At least they have a great swimming pool. I might donate $10 or $20 to the cause but donating any really large sum of money could be a waste of a donation as they would waste it in a shopping spree on all the wrong things. They would need more than a million dollars to fix what is wrong with the place.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Fire everybody, hire a painting crew, pave the dirt road, and combine the rooms with the shared bathrooms, add new more modern furniture to the guestrooms and charge more money and go out and hire a real business manager, food service manager, and guest services manager and almost all new staff.
