From what I understand th gulf has more life that comes with it. (hitchikers)

I recommend getting a combination of both to create more of a diverse tank.

Keys rock is considered "top shelf". It has the most color on it and comes with several small coral colonies. It will have various colors of coraline algea, songes and some corals. Gulf rock is known for its hitch hickers. It will have less color but more thinngs like crabs, shrimp and stars. Some good and some bad. I say mix it iup. Get half keys and half Gulf for the best of both worlds.

I only ordered Keyes rock. Its beautiful stuff. It also came with quite a few hitchikers (around 10 brittle stars, a mantis shrimp , a fleshy limpet, lots of spaghetti worms, a few bristle worms, several different species of crabs...mostly reef safe ones).

I think that's a pretty decent haul for 40lbs of rock. I'd never hesitate to recommend them to someone.
