We went on a Sunday because we heard admission was free on Sundays when there are no cruise ships. We arrived at about 11:15AM and we were among the first visitors. We were greated warmly by Juan, our server. We chose a beach chair and received a menu ($10 minimum per person). Everything (including kayak, inflatables) were included. The course-sand beach is clean and the water clear. There are just a few coral heads but when we snorkeled right off the beach we saw fish anenomes, rays, a small conch. South of the pier in about 1-2 feet of water there are a couple of large rocks where there were dozens of fish. Go to the far north end for a sandy entry -- elsewhere there are lots of rocks.
The food was good and more than some of us could eat and was reasonable in the $8-15 range. The drinks were not listed on the menu so I don't know what they were supposed to cost. You run a tab while you are at Paradise Beach and our final tab (not itemized) was $133 for 7 people (7 meals, 2 alcohol-containing drinks and 4 softdrinks).
The pool is a very big and warm. All one depth of 3' 8" with a ledge where you can sit suspended in an inch of water. Very pleasant.
I would go back, but I'd ask for an itemized bill next time.
