My girlfriend and I are planning a trip to TC in October. We're leaning towards Beaches bc of the AI. However, Im not crazy about spending 8 days at a resort with alot of kids. I was thinking since it is Oct, there wouldn't be so many kids, but from other postings it seems that may not be the case..

Any advice is appreciated or suggestions of accomodations where this may not be an issue?

There will be a lot of kids at Beaches. And mostly really young kids. I would suggest going elsewhere for peace (and I have kids, but If I was going with my husband I would NOT go to beaches).

The only other place that's AI is Club Med (no kids). I wouldn't say this is a romantic place and it certainly is more basic than a lot of places on Grace Bay. Provo is the kind of island where there are so many great restaurants near the hotels, it's a shame IMO to do AI and miss all that. Some onon AI to consider:The Somerset or Regent Palms or mid-ranged places like Ocean Club West, The Alexandra, Royal West Indies or our personal favorite The Sands all of which may have some kids but certainly not like at Beaches.

The Ocean Club West and the Alexandra now is offering meal plans if you want to go that route. I believe the Palms, Somerset and Turks and Caicos Club has breakfast included with the price of the rooms.

Being a single person myself, 8 days at Beaches would make me rip my hair out...Elmo singing, strollers and crying children...not for me...If you gave me a free trip there, I'd go just to be on Grace Bay and in Provo, but I'd be hightailing it out of there during the days on boat trips, and down the beach where it is quieter...

Look into The Sands, OCW and RWI...you can get some reasonable rates, and cook some meals in, probably would cost less than Beaches.
