Leaving Two Brothers Surf Resort was very sad. Not because I felt a connection with the overpriced and uncultured feel of the "family" oriented resort, but because I couldn't help but think about the local employees who were constantly being disrespected by Robert, the owner. I have studied and traveled to many different places and have learned about many different cultures. I have always wondered about where the bad reputation that seems to follow Americans abroad comes from. Now, I feel as if I know. Robert has got to be the most arrogant and disrespectful person I have met. Every interaction between him and his employees made me uncomfortable and embarrassed. In front of his employees, some of whom speak English, he would make statements such as, "None of them can even sign their names. I have to do it for them." Unlike Robert, I speak Spanish and was able to speak with his employees who are all very ambitious. Some have attended university, yet Robert doesn't believe that they can sign their name. How demeaning? It was disgusting to hear all of this, to say the least. Financially speaking, you should be aware that you are responsible for paying his employees...I guess it is in the fine print somewhere, but it was a surprise to my family and the other couple staying at Two Brothers. His employees are very nice people who despise him. If you stay here, expect to surf and do nothing else. There are no other activities available and if there are no waves expect to feel like a prisoner. Schedule-wise, everything is very strict. If you are looking forward to exploring, remember that Robert will not let you forget the time you were two minutes late. Power outages are very common and it will get hot at night. Also, there are many bugs that swarm in the houses because they are able to crawl underneath the doors. Overall, this place was overpriced and unwelcoming.
