We stayed at the paradise apartments for 11 days from 16th September. We have been a couple of times before and always enjoy it. The apartments are in a great location! Entertainment is rubbish, mainly bingo but because there are loads of bars etc nearby, it wasn't too bad. As we had an early morning flight back, we had to be out of our room by around 10am the morning before we left, so we paid for a late checkout room which was 35 euros until 9pm. Instead of letting us keep the room that we had stayed in for the duration, they moved us to a room in the Garnavos part of the complex! (Claiming that our room was reserved for some customers arriving at lunch time).
The Garnavos apartments are grim, really dated and dark inside, no space to swing a cat, and the balconies are shared. When we walked in, the bathroom floor was wet through and it stunk. It's just bizarre how the paradise apartments are lovely and clean inside, but the Garnavos is vile. We have already booked to return to Paradise in May, and will probably need a late checkout again, but we will definitely refuse to step foot in the Garnavos!
