Which option is correct depends on the context, but the short answer is that it doesn't matter that we is plural, it matters whether there were multiple good times or not. For example, if my friends and I all went to a concert together, I would say that we all had a good time , even though there were many of us. Alternatively, if I was remembering the summer camp I went to every year as a child I would be more likely to say that I had good times there, even though I am only one person.
For OP's specific context, only the singular is idiomatically acceptable. Semantically it's possible to imagine that each of us had our own particular kind of good time perhaps there was a party; some people enjoyed getting drunk, some enjoyed the food, some liked the music, etc.
Time to turn out the lights. He has never regard us with contempt. Jon Jones. Nobody can predict the future. The festival, which began in , celebrates the fall harvest and Rome's canal heritage. Henry Rollins.
But we use the singular because they all enjoyed themselves at the same place and time. We've all had problems. But we've all had good times too. It's just about possible to impose that meaning on OP's example, but idiomatically almost all native speakers would probably switch to Present Perfect for that sense: All of us have had good times.
