Shades of Green is an Armed Forces Recreation Center, meaning only military and Department of Defense civilians can stay here. The property has a woodsy setting with waterfalls and tropical gardens. Over 550 oversized guest rooms feature patios and balconies and seating areas. Family suites that sleep up to eight contain expansive living room areas, separate bedrooms and an additional full bathroom. A handful of snack places and cafes are at the resort. Garden Gallery Restaurant is the best bet for a family-friendly dining experience. Mangino’s Bistro is the most popular restaurant, serving delicious pasta dishes. The resort has professional photographers onsite to document family reunions and vacations. Golf players will appreciate that the resort is surrounded by two PGA Championship courses. Also, parents may want to visit the Magnolia Spa (they cater to children, too).

Why have the traditional buffet when they have amazing fruit plate and breakfast quesadillas! Fresh, light and wonderful all the way! Beautiful property and seems like maintenance all the time! Birds, wild life, AAFES on property is convenient as well ... just a place to unwind and relax.
We absolutely loved this hotel! We have stayed here 2 times and we will definitely be going back! Our room both times was very clean and comfortable. The last time we went, we took advantage of the Magnolia Spa with was exceptional! They made everything a breeze! They also help with finding the best Disney discounts for Military Families!
