The Paradise Beach complex has lovely wide open spaces of gardens and low density construction which gives a lot more privacy than other complexes. This is a new resort, and so still relatively quiet in relation to most, so a perfect place to come for a relaxing break away. There are some unfinished properties as you drive in the main entrance but once in the resort you don't see these. Fully secure on site with security guards at the main entrance from the road and also the beach exit. If you like a resort with lots going on and bars/shops/restaurants on site - this is probably not for you.
In the evening you can enjoy an aperitif on the terrace as the sun sets, enjoy a meal at the apartment. A nice evening strong (c 30 mins) or short taxi (3-4 euros) will take you in to Santa Maria for many different restaurant choices. You can also walk to the restaurants at Pronta Preta bay (15-20 mins) which is also open in the evenings. It is directly in front of the new Bikini Beach resort - ideal for a lovely lunch or evening meal. You can also order pizzas to be delivered or some of the restaurants will even deliver your choice of meal to you. Local supermarket at Villa Verde and various bars/restaurants/bank/ice cream parlour there also about 10 mins stroll.
