Regarding the stay?
Majorda has quite a few beach resorts and majorda beach resort located along shore is often a preferred place for foreigners. I stayed in a serviced apartment called tree house blue located about 2 kms from majorda beach.

Regarding tree house blue:
The 1 BHK apartment i stayed in was a nice pleasant air conditioned apartments with all the amenities filled in like modular kitchen, furnitures, refrigirator, bed, retro bathroom, electronic safe, swimming pool, microwave, stove etc. The staff were friendly and the service was good.
There are lot of indoor games like table tennis, carrom etc and you can spend some time with your family / friends.
There is a grocery store in tree house blue and you can buy the necessary items there itself.
Cycle is free to use here. The bikes & cars can be rented for self drive. The bike hiring costed about 300 INR and the CAR about 1000 rupees excluding petrol. Petrol is cheap in goa (cheaper by 20 INR / litre) and you can drive around the small city in these vehicles quite comfortably. There is one MR pareira near tree house blue who can rent you vehicles and also arrange for petrol.

Regarding the food:
There are lots of nice restuarants and I liked pentagon very much. There were lot of foreigners frequenting this place and the food was definitely very good. I felt the food was little expensive though.
I desperately tried out Goan food and the chicken vandaloo i tried was the lone not so good food through out the trip. The vandaloo gravy was little awkwardly spicy, tangy and felt some itch in tongue too after eating
The cheaper and a nice way i found out is that to pick the cycle and buy groceries from a bigger grocery store about 2 KMS from tree house blue.
