One of the things I have noticed that happens to kids when they come to the Big Island is that their eating and sleeping patterns change. They sometimes eat less food but increase their liquid intake during the first couple of days while they adjust to the climate change. This is normal. More liquids keep them hydrated which is very important for them while they are here.
Back home kids are used to a different time schedule then they are here. I often get reports from parents saying that their kids were up at 5am and ready to go while the parents were exhausted from the trip and just wanted to sleep in. Be ready for it. If the kids are old enough, set out some cereal for them to get for themselves in the morning and maybe have some new books set out for them or a movie they can quietly watch until you are ready to get up. If they are younger have their necessities close at hand and ready to use so that you don't have to dig through suitcases to find them.
Don't forget your stroller. Try to rent any equipment such as a stroller in advance so the equipment can be there when you arrive (If Hotels/Resorts allow it) or shortly afterward.
Always remember to call us with your room number, condo unit number etc as soon as you arrive. Because of security reasons the hotels and resorts do not give out this information. In order for your nanny to find you we have to know where you are.
