Castle not spectacular but views are good
Apr 2019 • Couples
The castle itself is quite plain and seems to have been over-modernised in the sense that the walls, steps, tower etc are all smooth and uniform and give no impression of age. If you are visiting Sur it would be worth calling in but I’m not sure you would make a detour too much out of your way just to visit the castle. However it does allow you to have some great views over the surrounding area including the neighbouring mosque.

Great for a quick stop while in Sur
Apr 2019 • Couples
If you are in Sur this is a great quick stop for photography. Lots of pretty pottery, etc. Great viewing and photo opportunities of the town. We were on a cruise excursion so we had good explanation and information but if you are on your own I did not notice a lot of info but still interesting to see. You probably only need less than 30 minutes to cover it all and take photos.

Only if you haven’t visited any Fort so far

This Fort is very similar to all the other forts in Oman. Few things inside. But great view over Sur. A guide will give you some information.

Well worth a visit, a guide who gave useful information and a manageable fort to stroll around. Great view and recommended for a pit stop

If You are in Sur...Stop By for Great Views
Nov 2017 • Couples
Guess what...it's still not open. We stopped by while we were in Sur on a half-day tour out of Muscat. Since it is located on a hillside, it does provide great views over the city of Sur for taking pictures, but aside from walking around and admiring the traditional architecture of the newly constructed building that constitutes the fort, there really isn't much to see. I would recommend stopping by if you are in the area. However, it is not really worthy of going out of your way to visit.

Great view
Apr 2017 • Couples
April 2017 - still closed for maintenance as others have alluded but offers good views of the surrounding area. You will not need long here if it is closed still, when you get here, but certainly worth a stop for the view, if nothing else.

Offers a nice view of Sur
Sep 2016 • Solo
This fort was closed at the time of my visit, and honestly, it doesn't seem like much from the outside. However, as the fort stands on top of a hill just outside Sur, it offers a really nice view over Sur. The view is worth stopping for if you are passing by the fort.

Nice side trip if you're already in the area
Apr 2016 • Solo
This fort is nicely restored. It could use more stuff to fill the rooms inside to give you an idea of how it looked in use. It's a good quick stop if you're in Sur, but I wouldn't make a special trip from Muscat. Entry is a half rial. Open from 0730 to 0530, Sun through Thursday. Closed Friday and Saturday. Guide spoke English and Arabic. Not sure about other languages. It's mostly self explanatory. If you've seen other forts in Oman already, it's more of the same.

A good start, but needs to be "finished" ...
Feb 2016 • Couples
A nice fort, well restored, the main entrance promises a lot and then, there is nothing else ...

Seems that the restoration project stopped at a point ... It is a shame because it has potential ...

You won't waste time going there .... You have a nice view also on the city of Sur ...
