The Excellence brand is also comparible, they have 2 resorts in Montego Bay, Secrets (uber ghey name) St. James and the Orchid. I haven't stayed at either of those resorts, but I have stayed at Excellence's throughout Mexico (Mexico always providing more bang for your buck flying out of the Midwest).
There certainly isn't anything wrong with Sandals, I prefer them actually, but have found there are similar options at lower price points and threw it out as an FYI.
I've done a little searching but so far I haven't seen anything that makes me regret my purchase. The ones that beat the price just don't look as good as the Sandals resort we chose. Doesn't matter, we have been wanting to do something like this for a looooong time. We are really looking forward to it.
