Stayed at Paradise hotel in Feb 2013. The setting was one of the lushest and lovliest of any place we had ever stayed. Beach was beautiful and the water crystal clear and calm. We had booked a suite and the space was fantastic. We had a full kitchen, separate bedroom and a huge patio that was surrounded by lush plantings. Staff was outstanding. There were a couple of young men working at the beach bar that were extremely friendly, accomodating and just plain fun. The restaurant staff were equally as wonderful. From breakfast to dinner in the evening they were there with a smile on their faces. There were 2 pools and one could sit up by the pool under an umbrella. It was always quiet by the pool. Comfortable loungers. There were lots of beach chairs available and though we'd heard it got very busy on cruise ship days we didn't find that to be a problem. There was security everywhere and the beach security kept the public from parking themselves on their beach.
Our biggest issue was the fact that the all inclusive actually excluded quite a bit. It was disappointing not to be able to grab a quick bite at the beach bbq without having to pay for it. The only food that was included was the buffet restaurant and the food did get a little monotonous. The choices were limited though at every meal there was generally fish, chicken, beef and or pork. Just seemed they all tasted the same every time. We prefer the small resorts and are not particularly picky about things like the food but it was a bit of a letdown. Wine was limited to dinner though I discovered early on it was best to go to the store and buy your own. In fact, we felt we would have been better off to not take the all inclusive package and just brought in food for breakfast and lunch and then wandered the beach for dinner as every resort along the beach had specials on food and drink every night. There was the "mall" in easy waling distance and you could get light meals and snacks there and also there was a wine bar and and coffee shop.
We ate at a restaurant just up the road from the resort called Celests. Food was wonderful and the parrots who joined you at your table were very entertaining. They make a mean mohito as well. Also try Nice and Spicy, just at the end of the mall. It's a noodle restaurant where the fod is fresh and delicious and you can mix and match noodles and sauces.
Overall, I would go back to Roatan in a heartbeat but maybe would not do an all inclusive, at least not at Paradise.
