Manuel Antonio does not have white sandy beaches. It does have lots of jelly fish, however. You can try Ylang Ylang by Montezuma - the beach is ok during low tide, but there's a nicer beach about 10 minutes away. As far as resorts go, this one's probably top 5 in the whole country.
I can't recommend a specific spa hotel on a nice beach. I usually go on the cheap ...But beware of the beaches at the year's. They can be crowded and noisy. I'd suggest visiting La Fortuna, by Volcan Arenal, for the thermal hot springs. Cabinas Dona Ana has a heated pool and simple cabins. It's very quiet and the facilities to prepare and eat food. From there you can go to Ecotermales a clean, safe water park with 4 adjoined swimming pools ranging from very hot to cold and very clean restaurant, bar, lockers rooms and showers at around $25 per person. Yoiu can enjoy an entire day there just relaxing. You might want to stay at a hotel in Playa Brasilito and visit Playa Conchal one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, made entirely of little white shells. In Brasilito, Hotel Diversion Tropical is economical and very clean. The owner's very helpful and friendly ...AC, cable TV, refrig, and internet.
