Default Turks and Caicos - where to stay?

GF and I are planning to head to T&C in October. I doubt we'll fish. Just looking for recommendations for a somewhat classy resort with an excellent beach. Not looking to spend $800 per night (the rate for the top place on TripAdvisor) but not looking for a Carnival Cruise atmosphere.

Prefer not to do all inclusive, as long as there's good dining nearby. Adults only would be ideal, but not a deal breaker.

TIA.

We stayed at the Regent Palma back in April. Very nice place. It's not cheap but if you can book before the in season rates hit it may fit your budget.

Thanks. That looks like it can be had for about the same as the Gansevoort - about $400 a night - which is fine.

I think we paid mid 400's for the first week out of season. Even though they were booked, we never felt like the resort was even 1/2 full. They also include free wifi, breakfast which always had a nice spread, and bottle water everywhere. All the staff were excellent and the manager from South Africa is a real nice guy.

Every night we tried to eat at a different local place. They have bikes you can borrow to ride around.

We stayed at The Sands on Grace Bay. It was very nice with plenty of good restaurants nearby.

That looks nice but we're looking for something with more of a resort atmosphere/amenities.

We were looking at that. The TripAdvisor reviews give the impression of it being somewhat family-ish and while that's fine, we're not a big fan of kids running all over the place. Although mid to late October isn't prime family vacation time, one would think.

we stayed at 7 stars several years ago for about $600 per night. One of the nicest places I've been. Beautiful beach. Get a car when there and drive. That way you can see everything. There was a "sandals" resort down the beach, and they had a huge lezbo conference that week. There were lots of whale sightings on the beach, more than in the water.
