    Anyone ever stay at this Military resort? Would you recommend it? Attending a Wedding there in February.
    Thanks, Kat

    We stayed there 3 years ago. It was VERY nice! Since then they've added to it and
    upgraded it. I've heard very good things. We really liked it, the service was outstanding and the rooms are l-a r-g-e, at least in the original section. If I had to
    critisize one thing about our stay-the food in the main restaurant wasn't amazing but it was fine. I've heard they re-did that restaurant so this issue might be moot. The location is great!. you can walk to the polynesian from there.

    It's great! We stayed there a couple months ago. It REALLY close to the Poly...you can walk over there and take the monorail.

    Love it at SOG, the first time we went we were so worried about how the hotel would be, we feel in love with it! Also the Hale Koa in Hawaii is great.

    Enjoy!

    We were there in Dec and it is very very nice. The rooms are huge and the grounds/pools are great. I would book ASAP as they tend to sell out fast!!

    If you check for your dates on the web site and it says your dates are not available call them. This happen to me twice, my dates were not available on line, but when I called they had rooms. Plus I wanted dates for June, my dates were not available. I called everyday to check and just this week I was able to get a reservation.

    Loved it! Big rooms, good service, nice grounds, great pools. We were not wild about the food but hardly ate there anyway. Good prices too! Do it.

    We stayed at Shades of Green this past December and it was a wonderful resort! The rooms were very clean, as well as the rest of the resort. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive, and the buses ran on time..w/ friendly drivers. Definately recommend this resort!
