Need a resort with reasonable 1 or 2 bedroom accommodations in Carribbean

I am spinning my wheels looking for a resort (no all-inclusives) in the carribbean that has a separate bedroom for the parents and either another bedroom or a queen pullout sofa in the living area for two teenage boys (12 and 14) at a reasonable price in July/August ($400-500 range). We have already done Grand Cayman, Bahamas, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Anguilla and are looking for a different location than these. We also would like to stay away from a lot of casinos and topless sunbathing too. We like the ammenities of a 4-5 star resort, safe environment, nice white beaches, water sports, a good choice of restaurants including some fine dining and perhaps a small town within driving distance. (We would consider two adjacent rooms too.) Can anyone make some resort suggestions? Thanks!

Look at Provo in Turks & Caicos, which has all the features you are looking for (although there isn't much of a town) -- easy to get to, superb beaches, good restaurants, and there are many nice condo-style resorts (we stayed at the Sands). You might also consider Barbados (we stayed at the Bougainvillea on the South Coast, and there are lots of other condo-style places) -- longer flights, though. Aruba has all the desired features too, but there are many casinos.

In July/August you may find deals like last year( free night stays) Check out The Sands on Grace Bay as mentioned above, on Turks and Caicos. For a step up try www.thesomerset.com , they are already advertising free nights this summer...great resort!!

I wouldnt go to Aruba then as although I found excellent white sand beaches, there are casinos, chain restaurants & I didnt get the small town feel to it but the teenage boys may even like it.We stayed at Manchebo Beach resort that fits ur bill perfectly, check it out.Curacao is lovely but not known for beaches as its hilly but has the rest of your wishes.Kura Hulanda hotel is the best & if you go to the lodge it has a man madebeach.The mariott also has a decent but not perfect beach there , the hilton stay away from it.
