Had the pleasure of staying at Grand Octagon resort a few days ago with my family. We booked two rooms and settled 50% downpayment, so we had no problem during check in.
The manager responded quickly to email inquiries, and service was excellent, considering that many of their staff were on-the-job trainees. It was actually a plus because they were very eager to assist us.
The hotel was easy to spot - they had a large sign in front, and they're located along a major road.
The rooms and bathrooms were clean and looked new. TV is small, but it worked and had cable, so no problem with that. They had airconditioning. There was hot and cold water in the shower. And also two of the fluffiest pillows I've ever had the chance of using (in a hotel). They were almost as comfy as my microfiber pillow. :D
The hotel was also a lot bigger than we expected. A nice place to stay with family or friends. Kids would enjoy it here. I like how the place felt secure/private. They had a security guard in front, a long driveway going to the hotel, and large spaces for parking.
Not so good: No wifi in room. Had to walk to the pavilion (right next-door) in order to use it. The connection kept getting cut, as well. I don't know if it's because there was too many of us using the Net, or if it's their internet provider's fault.
