Paradise Poker is one of the top poker sites in size and they have some very nice software and promotions. It's paradise, baby!

Paradise's players are about average for the internet - a few are really terrible, mostly pretty bad, a few solid ones, and the ocassional very good player. There's enough players at lower levels that you can always find a good game.

Paradise's software looks good - they have a tropical theme (you can even order drinks for the table beside your seat). It's easy to find everything in the tables and the lobby. The games run very quickly, this can be a problem if you're trying to multi-table but is otherwise a big plus. In short, this is a very solid package.

Support is lightening fast and generally excellent. I have never been kept waiting less than 15 minutes for a personally written, and helpful response. Cashouts are fairly standard (in the region of 48 hours).

Paradise have a decent selection of tournaments, at a variety of buyin levels. You start woth 1500 chips, so big multi table tournaments feel less like a crapshoot than they do at some places.

Overall, this is a very good place to play, and I'm surprised they haven't put more effort into marketing - they definately have a good product.
