I truly look forward to Marrakesh. I enjoy the location, the service, and I find the food fun.

La Hacienda has lots if rules and I do not feel comfortable there. Out of all the wdw restaurants, I think la Hacienda owners are not really interested in customer service.

I have not been to Marrakesh but I ate dinner at La Hacienda for the first time last September. It was hands down one of the best meals I've ever had at WDW! We are returning this September. We had the fajitas and they were amazing! Margaritas were very good! Our server was good as well. I highly recommend eating there!

Hi! I have never eaten at La Hacienda, but I am a huge advocate for Marrakesh! We love it there and I have yet to have had a bad meal there; we were even considering eating dinner there twice on our next trip because we love it so much!

I had delicious meals and friendly, prompt service at both last fall. Not sure what the earlier poster means by saying La Hacienda has lots of rules, so can't help you out there. Their mango-blueberry margarita is wonderful!

La Hacienda is a perennial favorite of ours. We were disappointed in Marrakesh the time we dined there.

We ate at Marrakesh and absolutely loved it! Went back a second time and was dissappointed. We have only been to La Hacienda once and that was awesome! We were a little leary of trying some of the desserts because we weren't sure if we'd like it so the server gave us what he recommended and told us if we didn't like it we could have what we were originally going to order (a dish of vanilla ice cream) I am so glad he did that, it was delishious!

Loved Marrakesh in 1999 and 2004 but haven't been since then, so take that for what it's worth.

This year, I ate at La Hacienda for the first time and really enjoyed it (I had the tilapia). I'm not sure about the reference to "rules," but I seem to remember reading on here some time ago that La Ha was strict about not allowing non-children to order from the children's menu.

Can you explain what you mean by "La Hacienda has lots of rules"? Haven't eaten there before but trying to imagine what you mean by rules, lol. Thanks
