Well to start with the name fits this Bed and Breakfast perfectly. Everything at 1st class Bed & Breakfast is just perfect. We loved the cottage. It was spacious and tastefully decorated. Dolores had thought of everything from a cool box and paper plates for picnics to a torch in case of a power failure. The cottage was squeaky clean... More

This B&B is well up on a hill, with good ocean views. Dolores makes you feel at home right away, and the breakfasts on the lanai (and evening chats) were excellent and relaxing. We stayed in the lower level of the house, which was nicely appointed and comfortable, with a small kitchen area and full refrigerator. Dolores was very helpful... More

This comfortable, quiet little oasis is tucked away in a residential neighborhood in the hills above Kailua Kona. It's one of the most relaxing, charming, and enjoyable bed & breakfasts we have stayed in ever! Delores takes pride in taking excellent care of all of her guests needs. She runs a clean, safe, and beautiful B&B. We felt like we... More

This spot is tucked away in a residential area high up on the hill overlooking Kona. Walking down to the cottage, equivalent to about 2 stories, brings you to a charming little abode. Once inside, the place is immaculate, beautifully furnished and comfortable as can be. Large kitchen area fully equipped except for a stove and oven (required, I'm sure)... More

We started our trip with Dolores and ended our trip with her. The rest of our stay was at the Hilton Waikoloa which was lovely but 1st Class B&B was a great counterpoint. We couldn't wait to get back for Dolores excellent breakfasts on her lanai. We made new friends with her other guests and would definitely go back if... More

We stayed at 1st Class B&B first in 1999 while waiting for friends to join us at a hotel. It was a Hawaiian experience in a real environment with fragrant breezes, peaceful surroundings, and lovely hospitality. We have returned in 2001,2003,2004,2007, and hope to return soon. Our pattern has been to stay with Dolores to get settled on the Island... More

My husband and I have previously travelled to warm destinations, but this was our first trip to Hawaii and after spending 12 absolutely wonderful nights staying at the 1st Class B & B, we will definitely be returning. Upon our arrival at the 1st Class B & B we were warmly greeted by the owner of the establishment, Delores, and... More

We stayed in both accomodations (the cottage and the studio) during our 20 day stay at Big Island. We were here because of the Ironman race. Both accomodations are spaciuos, very comfortable and are very nicely decorated. They have all facilities to make you feel at home immediately. Dolores, the lady of the house, was a very friendly and caring... More

At First Class BB you will be surprised by a first class service at its best and a warm and friendly welcome from Dolores, hostess and owner of this lovely place. The cottage is spacious and beautifully decorated. You feel at home immediately. Some munchies in the fridge, beautifully crafted name cards in the bath. Everything is clean and neat.... More
