Itís depending upon everyone's perception. If anyone has bad experience as they have mentioned the name of country they will give negative to countries. When you visit a country you will see the different thing there and you will enjoy and remember everything despite of your experience.

Interesting you mention Venice. We were in a glass shop looking at their wares and started to leave when the proprietor said "Come back when you have some money."

I'd have no problem not going back to England-and that is not even to say I didn't enjoy it but there are so many places to see.

Iraq, but then that violates the OP's intent, which includes "popular."

Barbados was a nice place but I found the people to be aloof and distant no matter how pleasant or interested in their island we were.

The people who said never to Italy and Spain, could you say why? I have never been but both were on my bucket list.

Ditto. Venice, Italy to be precise. My wife wants to go. I told her "It's dirty, smelly, and crowded. There are TONS of places I'd rather go than visit there again. It's NOT romantic at all."

My son and I spent two weeks in Cuba and I would never go back. Tourism is undeveloped, so, for example, we took an expensive tour to the sugar cane fields and processing plant. A train ride back to our starting point was included. There was one man with a machete in the sugar cane field who showed us how to cut the cane, the processing plant was shut down but there was a sugar cane juice machine, and the train was out of commission. We took many excusions. All of them promised great things but did not deliver. The Cubans had the impression that it was nothing for us to drop $100 every time someone filled our water glasses. There seemed to be a very distorted perception about what $100 means to people that live outside of Cuba.
