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.
Stayed at St. James/Orchid (two resorts in one). It was my favorite place when comparing all secret resorts I have stayed at in Punta Cana, Riviera Maya and Jamaica. Excellence in Riviera Maya is a close second.
We are doing the Siver Sands this year in Riviera Maya...have you been to that one?
English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
