    Default Frogs

    The main negative about the resort is the FROGS SONG at night they were so loud, especially annoying when my partner kept waking me up to say could I hear the bloody frogs.(take ear plugs, so you can't hear your partner!)

    That is sombody's complaint on a Tripadvisor review for CN that I read this morning. That just about takes the cake!!! We love the song of the frogs but I don't recall them ever being loud enough from in the room to be bothersome and I am a light sleeper.

    Love the Frogs Song so much that I did a recording one evening so that when I am homesick (which is always) and stressed I listen and puts me in a wonderful mood!

    We loved the tree frogs song so much that we spent 3 hours by the pond at CN recording them so we could play it at home to fall asleep. Some people just need to complain about something.

    The frogs can get pretty loud at Swept Away. I don't know why they have to have it up so high. If it ever gets too loud, just call the front desk, and ask them to turn the sound system down just a bit. That usually seems to do the trick......Really?

    I read a review, years ago, where someone complained about the "recorded sounds of insects" that the resort incessantly piped in all night long throughtout the resort. RECORDED? Really? That gave me a good laugh.

    Happy & Safe Travels!

    We also enjoyed the sound of nature at CSA last May. It drowned out my snoring the wife said!!

    This reminds me of a trip back in "04 we took with 3 other couples to CN. One of the ladies in our group insisted that the sounds of the tree frogs were coming from speakers hidden throughout the lush landscaping and actually said she thought it was rather "tacky" of Couples to fake a tropical environment. We could not convince her that it is really tree frogs and not a recording and that Couples is anything but "tacky". And...BTW, you are in a tropical environment!
    We still laugh about that when we bring up old trips.
    As for having trouble sleeping, try a couple Bob Marley's before hitting the sack!

    Love those frogs!!

    I have said to my wife, literally on every trip to CSA- I wish couples would produce a CD for the gift shop- or as a romance reward item. I'd be all over it !

    I read that review on Trip Advisor and just couldn't believe it! Hubby and I only hear that lovely sound when we are in Jamaica and it definitely adds to the tropical ambiance! I think some guests may need a slight attitude adjustment---how can you complain about sounds from nature????? One love to all especially the tree frogs!

    Never got a tree frog, we just had the friendly Geckos....we even named the little one Phineas. I watched the 'Marley' the documentary again on Netflix the other day and there's a small segment at the beginning of the film where you can hear the tree frogs as they filmed in the forest around Nine Mile and it always instantly brings me back to nights at CSA sitting on the verandah.

    We love them too - even recorded them to listen at home. People can complain about anything - we're all different.

    Karinjim...Where did you find a CD of tree frogs?!?!? Would love to get one for my hubby for our anniversary! I've googled but haven't been able to find anything.

    Just found this...Interesting Note about Why Tree Frogs Sing

    The male tree frogs sing to attract females. They only sing when they feel that the environmental conditions would support eggs and allow the eggs to stay moist. Very few will sing when it is dry out; but they will sing in large numbers after a rain, particularly after a series of showers. The males create their song by moving air back and forth between their lungs and a distendable air sac below their mouth. Though fascinating to watch, they are difficult to find, for they are less than an inch long and tan; blending in well with most foliage. The timing of their calls is distinct and planned. When a frog joins the chorus, he will identify a period when no currently singing frog is vocalizing and “take over” that “unused” time slot, resulting in a group of frogs who sing in the same sequence for quite some time.

    That makes a lot of sense. We were there is May one time and it was a little dryer overall and the frogs were quiter. In August and September they were wicked loud......in a good way.

    I love them too. The first time I went to Jamaica was Couples Ocho Rios now CTI and I thought the sounds were coming out of the speakers. LOL.

    Of course I know better now. When I went to Negril for the first time I was asking around to make sure they had frogs there too.
