The village looks amazing, however in reality is very small and not too much to do unless you have kids - in which case it would be ridiculously pricy day out as adult tickets are 14eur each. This includes the use of pool (mostly available at every decent hotel or villa) & a bay (Malta is an island with many... More

It is what it is, a film set for exterior shots for a Hollywood movie. Do visitors expect to see people living there?

Was not expecting much apart from the set. I loved the film as a child so was never going to be disappointed. The swimming pool was brilliant for my toddler. And the Bay Area looked brilliant for older kids and kidults! Take your costume and enjoy for the whole day!!! Would go back when my children are older. Loved it!!!... More

I have been to Malta a few times now and avoided the Popeye Village because I thought it would be tacky and not my thing. However after reading an article on Time Out about hidden gems I decided to take a leap of faith and visit. So myself and my partner got there early morning to make a day of... More

the place is amazingly beautiful, BUT you can see the village from the outside, other side of the bay to enjoy the view . the theme parc is really weird. Nice, but weird. The plus : the village is beautiful. Less : really dirty and poorly maintained. + : the staff is really into it, young, cool, and kind. -... More

I was keen to visit the Popeye Village following the death of Robin Williams. My other half wasn't so keen but reluctantly agreed to go along with me anyway. I wish I'd saved by 14 euros - EACH. We stayed a total of around 15 minutes, walked round, got our free boat ride (which we didn't really enjoy. The guy... More

Shameful and awful place. I went there at 1.00pm and after paying an exaggerated entry fee just to swim in the sea, you find it dirty and smells like diesel. Then you find a very very small pool. Sunbeds all torn out. Prices are super expensive. for two cheese burgers with fries I paid €23!! And last but not least... More
