Adult All-Inclusive, good for both or just me, and cheaper to get to?

We've never been to an AI, so we're looking for a more serene, mature experience, with excellent food and music. Would also love a show, but have no need to dance much. Can't stand tourist traps (like when you get off a cruise in Nassau), and would like to feel safe visiting something off-resort, but not so much into shopping, unless it's authentically local and a safe area.

My husband and I have been to Puerto Rico a few times, but that's it. We enjoyed staying at the Conrad at Condado Beach, then we did quite a bit of driving around the island. The driving was a bit too much of the time we spent, and then we found out later we'd been through the most dangerous part of the island (Loiza), which also happened to have my favorite beach. I love the kiosks along the road where you can get fresh bacalauitas, and the quiet little beaches that have interesting stuff washed up. And Luquillo is great (be sure to visit Kiosko #8!!!) for good snacks, too.

Because this is all more my kind of scene than his, I'm considering going it alone, at least once. If so, I'd probably not venture off-resort, but would love a quiet beach where I don't have to feel self-conscious about big a big older lady (or look/feel weird because I'm alone), where I don't have to worry about anyone selling me anything, where a pretty boy might bring me pretty drinks while I read or just lounge under an umbrella. Also *really* want the sound of the surf from my hotel room (love that about Puerto Rico), with possibly a private balcony.

Where can we do this where it doesn't cost a fortune simply to get there? We'd be traveling from Kansas City. Thinking about this coming Memorial Day timeframe, or maybe Labor Day. Thanks!
