At previous visit we enjoyed the village and the boat trip which was spoiled by the member of staff trying to impress local yo6ng girls on the trip by going fast and throwing the boat about. Whilst this is srill a valid point. Other aspects and the facilities at the fCility were good. Another positive was that there was excellent... More

What a great day out for everyone, no matter what age! We arrived for the opening of the park and went and got a sunbed straight away. We left our towels and took a tour of the village. We also had lunch which was lovely! The staff at Popeye village are absolutely fantastic, so enthusiastic and full of knowledge about... More

Great - the film set of the 1980 Popeye film with Robin Williams and Shelly Duval. We have been twice now - lovely day out, worth the entry for the swimming and subathing in my opinion

Good for the children, Most interesting thing was the documentary about the construction and choosing of the cast. The ice cream was poor and too sweet as with everywhere in Malta

lots to do, pools, activities on the water, boat trip and a film set. Staff all very attentive and great with kids. It's a bit hilly so not great for those who have trouble walking. There is a bar/cafe. Lovely attraction

We visited the Popeye Village which is a 5 minute drive from Mellieha Bay. For adults I think it is good for a couple of hours to look at each of the structures and effects used for the movie. Beautiful views on the 15 minute boat ride. The Seafarers Restaurant really needs to have a spinach dish on the menu... More

What a great day out we had. Staff dressed as popeye, olive etc and they are full of fun. Cafes on site with good food very reasonably priced. Plenty of sun loungers, umbrellas etc. With your entry ticket you get free postcard, glass of punch and a harbour crusie

I had seen this attraction from the opposite cliffs and from the sea and had always wanted to visit it. Well maintained and with staff in "character" dress made the atmosphere fun. I did not get to stay as long as I wished but still enjoyed the experience. The only drawback was the high entrance price 14-50 euros so could... More

The only down side of this place is that, who these days, can remember who Popeye is? If you're of the generation that does and can encourage younger ones to go, then you're all in for a treat. Slapstick nonsense abounds in a caricature backdrop. Good clean fun that you can't help but think of as entertaining, whatever your age.... More

what a fun place. not only are the people lovely but the film set is exceptionally well maintained. the small boat ride around the caves of anchor bay is a must. Get there early and get yourself a sunbed first before you go for a wander around the village. There is so much to see there! the mini golf is... More
