    It really depends which one you are in and which side of the building you are on. We were in the second one from the Palms and it was noisy. The buildings are not square to the beach so there is a "front" side that is more exposed to the main path and beach. The balconies all have a good view of the ocean but the main room of the front site faces the beach and the main room of the back suite faces the Atriums so it would be a lot more quiet.


    We were in a great location for all the activities we liked to do and it was a nice view but it was loud all the time. We could hear the music at the Palms which wasn't bad but we could also hear all the people leaving and everyone walking on the path. Drunk people are very loud on that path at all hours. The main problem was that people would start getting ready for breakfast very early and we heard all of that too. We were right by Seagrapes and they have to set everything up each morning. Every day we would wake up at about 4am to people talking, trays of silverware slamming around etc. Some mornings they were yelling to other workers who were a few buildings away! We are not light sleepers but we were woken up every morning. At 7 or so the watersports people start getting the beach and path cleaned up and you can hear that too. If they were the first ones out there we could probably have slept through it but we had already been awake for hours and were desperately trying to fall back asleep so that sweeping noise was really obnoxious. Needless to say, by the end of the trip we were TIRED! It's a beautiful room and I liked the proximity to the main pool, watersports, soda fountains and scuba hut. The downside was the noise. I think the buildings farther away from the Palms and Seagrapes would probably be less noisy.

    The BFS rooms are actually in the older section of the resort where the buildings are more spread out. There are three to four rooms in each building. We prefer the older section because it is more quiet. Also, there are no TVís in this area which is also nice. The resort, as a whole, is normally pretty quiet at night anyway. We had a noise problem from a large group on one occasion and management took care of of it very quickly.

    I stayed in one last year and am going back in May to do it again. There are screens but no glass in the windows and patio doors. These have wooden louvers that open and close for privacy at night and air flow during the day. You will hear the waves lapping onto the beach and the peeping frogs during the night. Almost like sleeping outside on the beach. The waves are small but constant so if you are a really light sleeper it may be a problem. These are the sounds of Jamaica Mon.

    Pretty much non-existent. If you're on your verandah you'll hear people walking by after dinner, but if you're in your room, you won't hear a thing...maybe a random housekeeping car, but that's it.

    Same as anywhere else on the resort... lots of peepers (crickets, tree frogs, etc)... waves lapping on the shore, that sort of thing.

    We were in a Beachfront Suite at CSA in March and had no issues with noise. And we kept the ceiling fan on at night only (no A/C) so that we could hear the waves crash against the shore- it was amazing

    I hadn't thought of the question in that way. I agree with you there. I don't think I ever hear the other guests in their rooms and rarely hear people walking by on the small paths. Everything is laid out in a way that traffic does not walk right in front of the balconies except for the ones facing the main path. We prefer the older section too for that reason, the more mature gardens and plants, the open, screened in rooms and the fact that none of the Atrium or BFS rooms share walls so it feels like your own bungalow rather than a building with 4 rooms.

    We have stayed at CSA five time in the Beachfront Verandah rooms. This year we stayed in the older section-Beachfront rooms and loved them. Larger,, quieter, and just beautiful. When we walked by the Beachfront Verandah rooms there were alot of really young people drinking and were very loud at night. Glad we chose the other rooms. Also the Beachfront Verandah rooms are closer to Margaritaville which blasts music till 1=2 am
