This resort is a project in progress, many incomplete areas on the ground. This resort's villa value would be SGD250 per night but they charge as high as SGD400 to SGD600 per villa.
At that price, mind as well top up a bit and stay in Sentosa because the time and money wasted on commute to get to the resort.
I would rephrase that this is not a villa, an expensive Chalet that you find in Changi Village (with an added a swimming pool).

Negative:
The beach has low tide and doesn't appear until mid day and subside again.
They have Shuttle Bus daily to Nagoya Hill daily at 10 am and 4pm. Each person Rupiah 60,000 one way (SGD6 one way)
Take a cab (4pax) from Batam Centre to Montigo Resort is about SGD15 one way - 45 mins away from the Batam Centre/XXI Mega Mall.
Montigo Resort charges SGD20 one vehicle of 4 pax (one way) to go to Batam City Centre.
Attention to details is not there, they shouldn't boast they are a 5 stars resort.
Hotel grounds are really filthy with rubbish as seen on pictures.
There is not jetski or water activities as the resort beach always suffer from low tides.
Lizards and bugs are common side (you must be okay with this before you choose this resort)
Think about it, time to commute there is insane, 50 mins ferry ride, Singapore to Batam City, From Batam City another 45 mins cab ride to the resort. Total amount of time and money spent to get there isn't worth it. 2x when you return too.
The resort entrance was bizarrely narrow from the side.

Positive:
Only book this resort with value of SGD350 maximum. Its not worth more than that.
Their breakfast had improved selections to buffet style (the food is still ordinary)
The Chalet is spacious especially the Masterbedroom.
The other room with single twin bed is just like small room in Singapore.
Restaurant Pantai or Tadd's are not exorbitantly price.
Family friendly, they have in-house OLO Kid's Club
