I missed the match, and only saw highlights. But it seemed to me that the first two penalties were completely terrible calls (As you say, Ronaldo was at least a step outside the area, and I'm not sure Ramos even made contact with Neymar), but I think the third one (Xabi) was legit. It's just a shame that came on the heels of the two dodgy calls.
Bummed I didn't get to see it; violence, some over-the-top theatrics, some pathetic diving, questionable officiating, an iffy sending off (if it wasn't Ramos, it would have been Pepe), penalties, and - of course - frequently brilliant football..... by all accounts, it was everything you could hope for in a Clásico!
