Swimming in Playa del Carmen or Riviera Maya?

For my honeymoon in july I'd love to swim in the sea, but I've been told that Riviera Maya is too wavy. Is Playa del Carmen more calm? Please help, it would be really frustrating if I make a wrong decision

I swam quite a bit in Playa and it was very nice. We stayed down at the Royal end of the beach. The waves picked up a bit after about 5pm, but we had no problems. It was very refreshing.
