Brilliant day for the family, when you have finished looking around you can relax by the sea or the swimming pool. Lovely lunches as well

Completely incongruous, with a youthful Popeye, Bluto and Olive Oyl dancing "Gangnam-style" in the vibrantly colourful village square. Children will love that! However, there is little to interest children inside the wonderfully ramshackle houses; the delight is in the view of the filmset nestling in the little azure bay. Although, you have to wander through it, rather than just photograph... More

Very expensive at 10.50 euros for adults and 8.50 for children. There isn't much there to see or do - mini golf (?), a museum place full of Popeye memorabilia, you couldn't enter all the properties and some bits were cordoned off which I find annoying in any place - why charge full price if you can't go everywhere? The... More

It was a few years back that we took the kids here but it was a great day out with lots to see and do, The Maltese people are among the friendliest that I have ever met on the planet and the country is great. Highly recommend this day trip.

This was something we definitely wanted to do - as our taxi driver drove past on the way to the hotel from the airport and it looked amazing from the top of the cliff. We we're one of the first to arrive, and the actors we're obviously not professional - more work could of been done to create the 'atmosphere'.... More

I visited with my husband and to be honest was quite disappointed with the site which was dirty. The view on entering the attraction is stunning and the people playing the characters are very enthusiastic but as you delve further in it goes downhill. The coach took us from our hotel and arrived at about 11am, by 11.45am we had... More

This really needs to be avoided and the entry price of £9.50 is a complete rip off. The whole place is in ruins , all the Christmas displays are all in dark rooms and look incredibly creepy. Walking around most things don't work, it's dusty and looks quite derelict. The wifi doesn't work and there's not a lot food wise... More

We popped over to Popeye's Village having heard it was a bit kitsch but ended up thoroughly enjoying exploring the fake town painted in garish colours. It's fun to explore some of the buildings instead as well as being able to climb up (a very steep ladder/stairs!) on to the roof in a crows nest. There was a special deal... More
