Robert Ross moved to Montanita in 2011 from Los Angeles, California looking for a simpler life. In Los Angeles, while Robert was in the Financial Services industry, he used every vacation to travel extensively around the world looking warm water, incredible surf and a relaxed lifestyle. Robert eventually stumbled onto Montanita on a South American surf trip in 2005. After 12 years of searching and preparing, Robert decided that Montanita provided the perfect balance to start the next chapter of his life. Today, if he is not at the hotel Robert is driving the coast in search of waves for surfing or wind for kite surfing or spending time with his precious two children , Maddox (5) and Naia (3), who were both born in Ecuador.
Moving to Montanita is a dream come true for Robert and looking forward to sharing his excitement and local knowledge with visitors to the ME Hotel and Montanita Estates!
