Going in the last week of June 2013 as 9 18-20 year old guys this was ideal really. After reading some previous reviews, I was a bit hesitant but any worries I had were soon quashed when we got there. We had 3 people in each room, with 2 bedrooms, 1 of them with a King Size bed, a nice bathroom. Checking in was no problem, the reception staff were very friendly and explained everything about our stay and the room. They took a 1 euro deposit just to check my card worked and I wasn't giving them false details in any case I should need to pay for anything broken etc.
We went all inclusive for the week which was ideal, going back and forth to the pool side bar all day, if was great! However, one thing to mention is that if you're in the queue with an attractive woman in a bikini, she will get served before you! But the bar staff weren't rude at all to anyone, (just preferred serving the pretty girls no matter how long you've been standing there). The pool was great, nice size and perfect temperature considering it was about 30 degrees plus all week. The only downside of the pool is there aren't that may sunbeds and even if you got down to the pool after breakfast, all the sunbeds would be taken! But there's still space on the grass areas to lie on towels or its just a quick walk down the steps to the beach where there are plenty of sunbeds. We didn't experience any charges for any of these, but there will be plenty of people to come along and try to sell you random things which gets quite annoying quite quickly.
So onto the food, it was good enough for the week, quite a lot to choose from overall, breads, soup, salad, lots of meats and fish options (sadly I didn't pay attention to if there were any vegetarian options) and a nice range of things for dessert. The food wasn't by any standards perfect but it was fine for the week. The options didn't vary much throughout the week but again, still acceptable by my standards.
The all inclusive runs until 11pm which is plenty enough time if you're getting the free drinks in before a night out on the strip (where there's plenty of bars and clubs to go to, most of which are brilliant! It's a great night out in Zante). The hotel is a quick 5 minute walk to the strip with loads of bars to stop and drink at along the way, 'Life's a Beach' (walking on the beachfront is great, staff are awesome and they have beer pong tables!!). Then there's 'Enzo' and 'Drunken Duncans Cocktail Bar' walking to the strip the road way from the hotel. Both great bars with some great deals! (Try the Head Blaster at Drunken Duncans!)
I would happily come back to Zante someday and happily come back to Galaxy Hotel, and I'd definitely come back All Inclusive!!
