At one time (before my time) Paradise Poker was the leading poker site on the internet. It's one of the smaller sites now, distantly trailing Party Poker and Poker Stars.
Paradise Poker has a nice interface. The software is attractive, easy to use, and reliable. The sign up bonus is average - 25% up to $50. It requires 500 raked hands to clear. Paradise releases the bonus in $10 increments - a nice feature, in my opinion. They offer occasional reloads, and if you look you may be able to find a better first deposit bonus through an affiliate.
Paradise tables are pretty soft, in my opinion. Paradise has recently introduced a Players' Club. So far, however, the Players' Club benefits are limited to freerolls - it doesn't (yet) offer merchandise, like Party Poker and Poker Stars.
Paradise tracks your stats for you - keeping track of percentage of games won, flops seen, and checking, folding, and raising percentages, among other things.
Paradise offers 24/7 support, although I've never had a reason to use it (a good thing).
