Where to go with 4 adults and a 2 year old. Need diving and gambling.

We go to the Caribbean almost every year. This year we'll be going with our brother and sis in law and their baby. They are more budget conscious than we are. We want an island with gambling and diving... but want to stay in a nice place with a nice pool and on a beach. Nice restaurants nearby. Dont care about nightlife. Easy for the baby and convenient for those of us that wont be diving. Any ideas? Have been to St. Maarten, Aruba, St. Thomas, St. Lucia, Bahamas... Loved Aruba (stayed at the Hyatt) and loved St. Maarten. Actually loved St. Lucia too. Loved them all! Would return if the deal was right. Thanks in advance!

Check out Turks and Caicos:

Kid friendly beach (most gorgeous you'll ever see)
Condo style rooms, convienent for kids
great diving ad snorkeling
2 small casinos, one of them electronic, one regular.
Great restaurants, you can actually walk to
great water excursions
the most gorgeous turquoise crystal clear water you will ever see

With your requirements, I'd send you back to Aruba, which has the largest ranges of casinos and nearby dive sites I can think of. I don't think Provo is going to satisfy you, though it has astounding beaches.

No brainer - Bonaire. Pretty much some of the best diving the Caribbean has to offer. Only down side is not too many beaches.

I'll second the Bonaire suggestion! We stayed at Divi for our honeymoon and it was perfect! They also recently renovated the property and they have a casino on site.
