I stayed at Coral Towers with my parents and my 2 young children. We chose Coral Towers due to having 2 bathrooms and being along the esplanade yet for a good price.
We had a great view of the ocean (mud flats at low tide) on the 2nd floor. The apartment was spacious and had plenty of room for a rollaway in the lounge room. It was however fruther along the esplanade than we were expecting - for some reason we thought it would be near Muddies, the cafe/playground/waterpark, but it was further away past the hospital. There were a few restuarants and a bottleshop within short walking distance. The walk however was too far for my elderly parents to Muddies, shops and esplanade so we were glad we had a car. It was almost opposite the "ship" playground which was helpful with the kids. It was also almost at the end of a 2.5km cycle/running track which goes from near the lagoon pool (ie centre of town) which was a lovely walk/run in the mornings or afternoons,
The apartment looks like it is due for a renovation and the aircon in the lounge room was an old loud monster so we used the bedroom ones only. The reception staff there were ever so helpful and accomodating. We did manage to see another apartment which had been renovated and had lovely tiles and furnishings.
Positives: good price, lovely views, great place if you have a car but don't expect anything flashy.
Negatives: our apartment was rather tired looking and not cleaned very well (ie used ear wax thing on the verandha), just under 2.5 kms from the lagoon area.
