My partner and I had an amazing day here. I've been before but when I was a little younger. We loved it! The movie set is really cool and all the little houses are really quirky. Was also great visiting here remembering the great comedy legend Robin Williams. All the staff are very kind and helpful including Olive Oyl :)... More

Yesterday we had a fabolous day at Popeye's Village.. apart from the beautiful athmosphere, the persons working there are simply amazing. We would like to personally thank Theo Zammit who played Popeye's role and Annalise who had Olive's role. The last and not least we would like to thank Kurt who also forms part of this great team.

Loved our visit here. Great experience and nice to walk around the film set, we visited the same week that Robin Williams passed away, so that was a little surreal. The staff in the village were helpful and friendly and up for a laugh. The water in the bay had some debris floating around, the tourists really need to buck... More

My experience of Sweethaven couldnt be more different to that of WayneIan. His idea of something great is something Disney. Sweethaven definitely isnt Disney. It isnt saccharine, fake, stylized in that vulgar, soul-destroying Disney mode. Instead its a genuine effort to capture the quirkiness of the Popeye legend. Sure, its a bit run down...its meant to be. I have been... More

Superb....you were on a Disney Film Set and so life like. Take swim wear with you as you are able to swim there and relax on the sunbeds. A free boat trip included in the price.

Went to Popeye Village and the views are fantastic!! Walked around the village which is not very big. In my opinion the set looked somewhat tired and needs some attention. The children's pool area was fun for the kids but needs some cleaning as it looked dirty. I suggest they stop promoting the dilapidated crazy golf area. I would be... More

Had no expectations but turned out a pleasant day very informative on the movie. There are beds and water games if you need to cool down. Price on the expensive side at €14 per person but very informative and picturesque recommended for all ages

on a recent return visit to this attraction we were disapointed to find that it had changed dramatically and not for the best in some ways although it now seemed as though it was been looked after more it was not as family orientated as it had been on previouse visit with in my opinion it directed more towards people...
