Where to stay with teens on Turks and Caicos

Planning a Caribbean vacation this summer with Dh, me and our two boys( 20 and 17).
We've never been there so having a hard time getting a feeling for the various resorts.
Looking for a 2 br villa, we prefer smaller resorts, but with amenities like nice pool, beach service, restaurant on site(but we like to eat at local places as well) . We don't like AI or huge over run resorts, more "boutique " is probably our style.
We like beach time, snorkeling, tennis and golf(looks like most resorts have access to Provo golf course?) Concierge that can arrange off site snorkeling or boating trips is good too.
Our budget is around $800 night. We plan to go late June or sometime in July.
Thanks for any help!

We love THE VENETIAN, on the far end of Grace Bay. It has everything you're looking for EXCEPT a restaurant on site. However, two doors down at OCEAN CLUB, there's a casual restaurant that's OK for breakfast or lunch.

We also really like WEST BAY CLUB, but it's typically more $$ than THE VENETIAN, and doesn't have tennis courts on site.

What we like about both places are the stunning accommodations, comfortable beds ()!, and quiet mostly uncrowded beachfront.

You will need a car to access the island's other beaches and restaurants.

Forgot to add that the golf course is directly across the street from THE VENETIAN, which has been a real plus now that my future son-in-law plays so much!

I would look at The Somerset or Regent Palms, both would fit the bill. Beautiful suites, great restaurants on site & many very near. Also, both have water sports for the boys.

Thank you Caribzack! I'll definitely look at these two as well. It seems like there really are some great places to choose from, it may come down to which has the best availability. Would love to hear about any other favorites!

Actually it may come down to price. I was shocked to see what a 2-bed runs in June/July, but you may be able to find some specials.

We decided on the Somerset. The Venetian looked great too but we decided with the boys an on-site restaurant would be nice. We're really excited! It looks beautiful and most reviews are really positive! I'll report back!
Thanks again to everyone for the great advice!
