I have been to Paradise Beach on both of my visits to Davao. You can go there late morning, have a lazy lunch and swim a bit and come back in the late afternoon. Of course, there are a lot more activities there, and you can also stay over night.
It is AMAZING how clean the place is, how clear the water is, and that there are fish with Davao (big and dirty) just offshore. I hope Samal will stay this way.
The resort is very local oriented...so there are some who might not find it their "ideal" of a beach, but then again... you are in the Philippines so why not visit a local resort? If you want an international resort...stick with Boracay.
The food in the restaurant is excellent but a bit pricey (for the Philippines) The service is REALLY slow considering they have an army of staff. Everyone is very polite however.
Samal has so many other "resorts" seemingly catering to every budget. I think it's really a destination in its own right, so you might want to consider some more research before heading out there.
Otherwise, for a day tripper... Paradise Beach is really a nice day out from the City.
