Casinos & the Caribbean

My husband would like to go to Turks & Caicos this year for vacay. However; after researching this I have found out that the only casino on the island is at the Allegro resort which seems to have been purchased and will shut down at the end of April. I haven't found any more information stating that there will still be a casino or that another will open.

Now my questions are...what islands have casinos? All-inclusive resorts (or at least a beverage & breakfast plan) and are nice, relaxing, great beaches, etc...? That are not going to break the bank. We don't have a specific price range. Also, any place that isn't compared to Disney World would be great...I have read several reviews about some resorts and a couple said they were worse than Disney. It would be my husband and I and another kidless couple. We don't mind being at a place that is kid friendly just not over-run by children. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Aruba is out of the question. We were there last summer for our honeymoon and I was very disappointed and if I never go back that will be too soon. This is just my personal opinion as my husband didn't seem to think it was as bad as I did.

Dominican Republic? Bahamas? (We have visited the Atlantis while on a cruise, we aren't really interested in going there for an entire week) Any other suggestions? We are planning the trip for early July.

Any and all help would be very much appreciated as I am very confused as to where to start searching for the perfect vacation spot for 2004.

Thanks again in advance!!!
