My favorite travel information website is the forum hosted by the Lonely Planet guidebooks, called Thorntree. There are so many dedicated travelers on there, you only have to ask a question about a place, no matter how obscure, and someone will have the answer. In fact, often the question has already been asked and you can just investigate what people have already said about it.
I had to take a trip to Tonga recently, which seems like the kind of place that's slightly off the beaten track, but I was able to find all kinds of relevant information about the various resorts and so forth from people who had been there and knew what they were talking about.
Plus, if you browse, you might find information you never would have thought to ask about.
