As someone who stayed at the Turks & Caicos Beaches a couple of years ago, I can attest to the luxury digs, and though I was there sans family, it never had a kid-intensive feel to it. The place was huge, with 16 restaurants and so much to do, the humanity was spread out quite a bit and there was, mercifully, no noticeable squealing and screaming from teeming hordes of children. There was just so much going on for children in a variety of programs for all ages, it never had that overrun feeling a lot of family resorts have.
