They are very different tools. Xamarin is low level and requires that you understand some core things about compiling and using the native API's. There is Xamarin Forms which is a bit higher up but has its faults too. Ionic is very high level and is HTML/JavaScript based so it will produce a sub par result in some cases. I personally chose Codename One because it's just in the middle and I like Java.
