Where is a good quiet Caribbean beach resort, with good food and service but a minimum of loud people/activities/partying?
Here's what I want from the resort or hotel: walk right out directly onto the beach. Sit down in a beach chair under an umbrella. Order a beer or pina colada (or bring one from the beach bar). Then do nothing all day, enjoying peace and quiet, looking at the water. Then walk back to the resort's restaurant for a good dinner. Bedtime. Next day, same agenda.
I don't want a casino. I don't want nightlife. I don't want organized hula hoop contests on the beach. I don't want rock-climbing or kayaking adventures. I just want a beach, an umbrella, and a beer. And then a nice dinner.
Extra points if this location is a direct flight from New York City.
One place that fits the bill, by the way, is resorts on Grace Bay, within Turks & Caicos. (Providenciales is a direct flight from NYC.) But most of those places are expensive and I'd love to find something that's more affordable.
Any ideas and/or recommendations from past experience?
P.S. I have seen this question
about a short Caribbean vacation... which is helpful except that I'm not looking for a lot of outside activities.
