Full disclosure, at the start of the planning process for my next vacation, I said 'I don't want to be further than 2 hours from the airport', so in a sense I get it.
But on the other hand, I can't believe the animosity I am reading about a resort that is 50 minutes from the airport.
Maybe I have travelled to more places, but I've been to several places where the transfer was over an hour (Mayan Riviera, St Lucia etc.) and I've never considered them unreasonable, so I have been very surprised with the number of reviews SLATING a hotel for being under an hour's drive (albeit a bumpy one).
Would these posters rather their resort was under the flight path with low flying aircraft a la Maho Beach?
