We was in our first day at the Popeye Village and was very windy. There is a tiny Village, beatiful and the kids will love it.

Even as an adult couple we enjoyed it a lot. It was something different... Price-wise I read other reviews and i totally disagree with those saying it's high. For 12.50 you could use sunbeds, water-park, boatride, pool... So if u spend the day there it works out cheap. Restaurant food was delicious with a beautiful view to the bay.

Nice day out with kids but limited amount of things today. If you get the chance stand on the cliff opposite to the village and it will give you a beautiful view x

Great if you just want a few nice pictures and the bay is gorgeous. The village itself is dilapidated and the attraction has seen better days. The actors working there are terrible and the free photographs etc were not forthcoming. service in the café was terrible. Give it a miss.

Was it worth seeing? Yes. Was it worth the price? Nope. That's probably all I can say about this attraction. It needs serious investment and cleaning, especially the bay which is realy beautiful

I first visited this place in the early eighties just after the Robin Williams film was made here. It had an awful lot of character and charm. Now it is truly bad. What could have been a Wonderfully preserved film set has been turned into a Disneyesq abhorration. Very sad indeed and not worth the excessive entrance fee.

Took some tourists there last month and was embarrassed to say the least. The place has not changed one bit since i last visited 23 yrs ago except for a pool addition. The place is falling down and its not cleaned up. It was frustrating to see tanks of plastic in water. They have tourist swimming there and you pay... More

Popeye Village looks as though it hasn't been updated in years and is in need of investment. The bay itself is brilliant except for the rubbish in the water. The characters were sort of OK but a little bit corny. Their 'white' outfits looks like they were in urgent need of a proper clean or even replacement. The boat trip... More

€14p/p...a bit much considering it's for kids entertainment BUT... - they have beer - kids have loads to do...the small kiddies pool is perfect as it has a play park in the pool for hours of fun. - boat ride for families (incl. in ticket entry) - sun lounges are ok. Not 5* but ok as they're under umbrellas -... More
