We visited this sight in late March, the view from the top of the cliff down on to the set is stunning and very photogenic. It costs 12 euros at present, the site is awesome with plenty of quirks and fun and games to be held. They have actors playing Olive Oil, Bluto and of course Popeye. Bluto and Olive were great characters and happily chatted with visitors and posed for photographs. However when my wife spoke with Popeye and asked for a photo, he quite abruptly said "cant now busy" which ruined her visit. There is a mini golf course, and plenty of wooden games to play, and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. In our opinion Olive is the star of the show, she was friendly and pleasant at all times, and when we were photographing her house , she came running out to offer her services as a model. She really makes the whole experience worthwhile.

Didnt know whether to come here but glad we did.
Although expensive to enter at €18 an adult and €12.50 a child its a fun filled attraction with plenty to keep both adults and kids entertained.
Small swimming pools with slides for the youngsters at the top of the park with beds around.
The sea was rough on the day we attended but had fun doing the inflatable obstacle challenge.
Food was surprisingly very nice and really good service too. Better than a few very expensive restaurants we ate in elsewhere!

We stayed for a very enjoyable 4 or so hours.

You cant really walk here as the road has no pavements and is quite busy with vehicles.
The 101 bus stops here hourly and a taxi to Mellieha cost us €8 for a party of 6.

Spent a fun few hours here with my wife and daughter (24) who loved it.
We last visited not long after they had finished filming so it was just a disused set so great to see if restored and giving people a lot of pleasure.
The buildings are well restored and the short film about the making of the movie is interesting. The guided tour was well done and the little shows are fun although we decided watching one was enough.

Could stand outside and just take pictures but for €12 it’s worth going inside for a fun few hours

Nice place, but for couple it was waste of money. It should be great and acceptable price for families with children, which can spend their whole day, by the sea and a lot of other attraction for children including small theater performance.
Would be great, that will be splitted visitor's area for quick visit for half price and 18€ for whole day. Our visit takes 45 minutes and we were sitting by the see long time.

We came for the 'Easter Special'. It was a lot of money for not very much 'special'! There was not very much for the children to do and the place was quite run down. The puppet show was quite strange and the Easter egg hunt was spoiled by one or two local families who went around and collected all the eggs before the hunt started, leading to lots of disappointed children!

Best thing- the free biscuit- that was tasty. All in all 'average' is a fair word. We have found that Malta is very reasonable and offers great value for money- this was unfortunately not the same.

The Village is great and a special thanks to the animators who shot a hilarious video with us and sent it afterwards (5€). The Cove it sits in is also unexpectedly beautiful and wonderful to swim and snorkel in - take your beach gear!

We were pleasantly surprised at what good value things were here. The entrance cost is very fair and the restaurant was reasonable with pizzas at about 9€ upwards.

Overall, us and the kids loved it.

The location was open during the COVID19 pandemic time in December 2020. The bus 101 from the coastal road goes to the village every one hour and the ride was fast.
The shows and short movies in the village were available yet the big restaurant inside was closed. 11€ for an adult entry with a free postcard and a popcorn till 5pm closure. No one was swimming in December but there were a lot of things to take photos inside. The Christmas Town attraction inside was suited for the Christmas time visit and there was a Santa Clause at the saw mill area with stuffs to take the phots with him.
The entry requires the submission of first name, family name, nationality, phone number, address, number of people together for the data collection. I encountered such in the Napale restaurant in Is-Suq in Valletta when I dined there. So, the Popeye Village was the second location I submitted my information.

In winter/spring you really will only need a couple of hours here as you cant do swimming or sunbathing, but its definitely worth the bus trip. It was €11 per adult this time round which included a souvenir postcode, a photo and a cone of popcorn.
My second time here. First time about 5 years ago i took my daughter and she loved it, got involved with the 'Show' they put on and the activities. This time round was just me and the boyfriend (his first trip to Malta). He is planning on watching the movie now - but he thought it was quite funny, and a great piece of movie (no matter how cheesy or rotten tomatoes) memorabilia..

The Popeye Village has stood the test of time, with forty years since the 1980 movie coming out. As it is a musical film, expect to see a short dance routine by Popeye & Co. For children there is a puppet show, and crazy golf course.

Visiting in March meant that it was quiet; the kid's pool was green, and the deck chairs were covered up.

The €11 euro ticket includes free popcorn, a picture and a postcard. With a free entry to a film about the filming of Popeye, containing a slow articulated voice over.
There is of course, the full film version of the movie, there to watch as well.

Finally Santa's workshops are still there, packed full of old toys.

We visited here years ago when our children were young and it was quite run down. There has obviously been a big investment made as now it is very well run. There was plenty for our grandchildren to do: crazy golf, table football, play areas. The shows were good. There was a puppet show, an Easter Parade and an Easter egg hunt. Popcorn and a photo were included in the price. All in all, a pleasant way to enjoy a few hours and good value. One tip: if you catch the 101 bus get to your stop in plenty of time as the timetable is not reliable and there is only one bus an hour.
