Picturesque Village that totally caught the imagination of the 4 year old in our group. He loved going in and out of all the buildings, especially the Christmas village. Lots of live entertainment and Olive Oil was especially engaging with visitors. The Playground at the top of the hill (parking lot) is like all indoor playgrounds - not worth the... More

As part of our trip to Malta we decided to go visit the film set of the Popeye film. A village purposely built for the film and all in timber. There were a few things to do. A boat trip out of the bay to the cave used in the film. There were people acting as the main characters from... More

Was a bit apprehensive about this trip but what a trip it was. Was kept entertained throughout and great value with a trip in a boat, picture taken and even some free drinks. Spent most of the day after the show sunbathing. We had no children with us but we could see the time the other children were having through... More

This was a pleasant surprise! Amazing place, beautiful film location from the Robin William's Popeye movie. The location is stunning, overlooking the bay on the cliffside. There are numerous attractions, even a speed boat ride! Popeye fans, you will love it!

Good old popeye village, been here before - things have changed over the years. Great view of the village from the cliff by the bus stop. Years ago they used to have viewing platforms on a number of houses, its a shame that these have been closed. The gift shop whilst nice charges crazy prices. Unfortunately the beach was also...

Me and my boyfriend passed there by coincidence. It was an interesting visit. Didn't take longer than an hour though. We don't have kids, I can imagine they think it's a lot of fun. We also went in March, so the pool wasn't open. There is more to do in the summer.
