Too expensive for its poor quality! Place seems neglected. Santa's village characters hadn't been dusted for ages, very raw and of poor quality. The place needs a lot of maintenance.

We didn't feel the need to go in and pay for the tour as we have no children travelling with us. However it looked colourful and fun from above on the roadside, and the waters looked gorgeous!

It's a must visit when in Malta. You can get there by bus from Mellieha. Don't miss the cinema and enjoy the view of the bay while drinking wine included in your ticket. We couldn't swim since the waves were huge and it was pretty windy. You can also use the pool - more for families with children.

This review is a couple of months late, but alas. The actors were great, most of them hilarious and funny. Next time, I'll wear a track suit rather than 'Saturday'-wear... you can imagine why, being a haunted village....

A great day out for the family (probably better in season). Malta is very small island so everyting is very close.

Spent the whole day at Popeye Village. The staff are extremely friendly. We participated in the making of our own little scene from Popeye. Overall, great day out with great views to top it off.

We enjoyed the fact that even though they were snubbed by Robin Williams, they continued to keep the story of Popeye alive. What they need is money to buy new costumes, as the ones they used had seen better days. To actually see the village once you have seen the film was great. Would I go again, maybe, as this... More
