Do native Spanish speakers ever find it annoying when non-natives speak in the language?

I am an American of German descent and have been learning/speaking Spanish for the past 6 years. I know that many times, when my cousins and I encounter an English speaking person who is not a native German speaker, we often switch to English because my cousins often find it annoying to hear an American speaking in German (I have no idea why). Is this true with Spanish speakers also or is this just my family being too sensitive?
