Before I stayed at this Hotel, I have reviewed most of the comments at Tripadvisor for this hotel, the good and not so good comments. However, I wanted a new modern hotel to stay and with my Accor card membership offering me a very good member's price, I decided to stay at iBlis Styles Bali Benoa for 4 days with my family. I booked 2 connecting rooms.
When I reached the hotel, I just realized that I forgotten to bring my Accor card. Thinking that I would have difficulty checking in, the reservation staff was very helpful and the check-in was a breeze, it also helps that I have printed my reservation form with me which assisted with the process.
The rooms was nice, clean and quite spacious for an iblis Hotel. We had the room facing the sea, although there is a new hotel being built overlooking the balcony, nevertheless, we did not experienced any loud noise except for some traffic near the road which was manageable. If you do not like even some noise at all, please request for the room overlooking the pool.
Breakfast was quite okay not that fantastic, what was notable was that the egg queue is now shorten. The Chef was there to ensure that each person was only allowed to have one plate of eggs, you may queue again for additional eggs. The hotel management must have read the earlier comments on the long queue for eggs i.e. each person asking for 4 to 5 eggs, hence holding the queue, and improved on this. In order to have a better serving for breakfast, the hotel may add additional menus like pancakes, bread pudding and even soup like cream of mushroom, etc

Management : open for comments and willing to improve guest's hotel stay, I was even encouraged to give my views on Tripadvisor. I hope management would consider my comments to improve on the hotel's guest stay.
Breakfast : lack of variety of food, although the food was quite nice, replenishment of foods frequency was not too bad based on previous comments, I noted the Chef was always on at the look out to replenish food.
BBQ : Every Friday night, there is a seafood BBQ buffet for guest at the restaurant at discounted price compared to Jimbaran Bay cut throat rate, we were informed too late to try the BBQ as we made earlier plans for a sunset dinner at Jimbaran Bay. Perhaps, management should inform guest earlier especially for those staying during Friday nights of the BBQ promotions. Promotions can be via e-mail to guests.
Beach : the area is still under development, lots of construction activities, will be a nice beach once construction is complete. Please do not expect the beach to be the same as Kuta Beach.
Sea sports : need to have more promotions
