  • Meet The Team: John at Outrigger Reef

    Destination: Oahu

    Today we stopped by the Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort to talk to John Thompson. In his 24 years at Outrigger, John has earned a well-deserved reputation for excellence in hospitality and Aloha Spirit. A common theme in guest comments is his friendly demeanor and kindness. He treats all our guests and his fellow hosts as family. Return guests ask for him by name upon arrival and comment on how long they’ve known John and how many times they have stayed at the Reef. One guest comment sums it up, “Big John and the whole group up front they do a great job. Big John is like family.”
