What options do I have as far Android development?

I want to look at Windows OS dev environments for Android.  I have already tried Eclipse as well as Visual Studio 2015 preview (Xamarin) and have had a very frustrating experience so far.

What other IDE's are there?

Eclipse is by far the most stable one for Android development, and because it's been the defacto IDE since Android came out, it has the most support in case you run into problems. But if you really want to try something else, Google is officially in the process of switching to Android Studio as their default recommended IDE. It's still in beta, though, so you might run into some issues that your wouldn't with Eclipse. They also have an RC1 release in the canary channel, but the beta is more stable. You can get it here.
