I took a large family group (7 adults and 3 kids) for a spring break trip. The OGC is in a perfect location and the grounds are very well kept. No major problems with the rooms and the minor ones were taken care of quickly. They were able to put us all in the same building which was one of those that we requested (17, 18 or 19). These are a distance from the night-time action and very close to the pools.
We ate all meals at the buffet and most were quite good. Interesting that each night there was a different theme, but everything tasted the same. Due to the size of our group, we were unable to try any of the specialty restaurants, but didn't mind.
The kids really enjoyed the pool activities and were entertained the entire trip.
Diving: i recommend that you hook up with one of the smaller operations like Dive Hut. Pro Dive runs the operation at the OGC and is a cattle-car. If you are looking for a dive destination, you can do better.
As a family trip, it was very good.
