We stopped at Paradu to finish up an extended European holiday with our 3 and 5 year old boys. I highly recommend. So family friendly! Lots of activities for the kids. Great pool and beach. Kids Club was available down to age 3 - ours didn't love it, maybe a bit weirded out by the Italian language. Braver children probably would have been fine. There is a bracelet swipe system so you don't have to carry cash. The chalets are very small, but they do the job.
In terms of food, the pizza restaurant was delicious. The a la carte was good as well, and nice for the kids to play on the beach while we finished a leisurely dinner. The buffet we ate at for lunch and dinner, and really weren't impressed. It was a buffet, I guess.
Overall, a wonderful experience! The staff absolutely make Paradu what it is! Definitely go if you have little kids, especially if you've been doing more grown-up, adventurous travel.
