We stayed at the Paradise for two nights. Its a nice place, sort of a mini resort. We were staying at another hotel and due to a misunderstanding, on short notice we had to relocate at 8 pm in the evening. Tiffany and her staff at the Paradise rose to the occasion, and by 9 pm we were moved and unpacking. They even held the restaurant open past 9 pm closing so we could get a bite to eat.
We stayed in one of the large rooms on the second floor. Very nice room, coffee maker, fridge, large bathroom. Very large balcony overlooking the bay. The room seems new or just remodeled. There was a room safe but I couldn't get it to work- I think it needed batteries. The cable hookup to the TV wasn't yet working in our room. No problem- we're on vacation. They have wireless internet but I could only get a connection in the restaurant/bar area.
We ate at the restaurant there two nights. The first night we ordered blacked grouper- a bit over cooked/over spiced. The second was snapper Placencia- very nicely cooked & delicious. Highly recommended.
They have a nice bar open to the beach and happy hour beers are only US$1.50.
We were out fishing during the days so I can't give an opinion on daytime activities. They have a small spa and dive shop, plus ocean kayaks.
All in all a very nice place to stay.
